More about me

I have been lucky to have three careers in my life. Television, Business and as a Public Speaker.

All three have been challenging and immensely rewarding. I’ve learnt so much and continue to develop my skillset everyday through the people I meet and work with.

I’ve found my ‘why’ – helping others to sharpen their messages and deliver them with impact…and yes, I walk my talk.

It was a great pleasure to work with you recently. The art of communication is clearly an essential tool for any business – and it is more than just words.  Thank you for your superb ability to advise on content, delivery and presentation, and to instill the communications skills required for an effective public appearance. The speech was a great success, very well received by our audience at our important launch event. We were delighted that you were able to help us achieve this in just a few hours, clearly reflecting your fantastic experience and communications skills.

Arti ran a workshop to my Vistage 5 Group at Ragley Hall last week on media training, with outstanding results. There were 23 CEO's from different industries and her average score for relevance and presentation skills was 97%, the group has been together for several years and thought Arti was one of the best speakers we have had at our meetings.
I recommend anyone or organisation who wants to take advantage of media interviews, with confidence to engage Arti as a remarkable individual with outstanding training ability, I will be inviting her back to the group as soon as possible."

Arti is an inspirational coach. Her combination of knowledge and enthusiasm makes the training both effective and enjoyable. The training is pitched carefully to be appropriate for the audience but pushes you beyond your comfort zone. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Arti to others who want to improve their media handling skills.”

The whole team found the communication training excellent. Arti took time to discover what we needed and delivered the material in a clear way, ensuring that everyone went away with something useful at the end of the session. The training was productive, enjoyable and I would not hesitate to recommend it to other businesses.
