A note from Kim
Hi, thanks for visiting the website. This is me:
“I’ve had a lifelong interest in words, language and communication, in setting up new initiatives and in connecting people.
Creating new services that are of benefit to others has been a passion of mine. Initiatives include unique services via Successful Speaking; a new chapter of the professional speakers association; support groups for business people and several initiatives for clients with special needs.
Developing my interest in language has led me to gain a degree in Linguistics from Edinburgh University; win writing and speaking awards; teach English as a Foreign Language; do voluntary work at the local college with students who need reading and writing support; and write books, e-books, newsletters and articles.
Born in the UK, I also have a love of moving to new places. So far I’ve lived in ten places within five countries, including New Zealand and Uganda, East Africa.
Other than these, the two biggest aspects of my life are my wonderful husband and children … and chocolate! Equally."
