Speaking

I love speaking to audiences and try to leave people inspired and amused by an honest account of building a fast-growing enterprise. 

I love speaking to audiences and try to leave people inspired and amused by an honest account of building a fast-growing enterprise. 

 

As I am currently working on a number of initiatives, I am only available for a limited number of speaking engagements per year, both commercial and charitable, here in New Zealand and offshore.

 

I donate my time to charitable events that align with my values, however, for for-profit events I do apply a speakers fee. 

Topics I love speaking about:

  • My business journey & how to find your purpose

  • Business, social enterprise & building a start-up

  • Purpose-led brands

  • Sustainability & greenwashing

  • Entrepreneurship

  • Environment

  • Marketing & brand building

  • Science

  • Exploration

 Interested?

“We absolutely loved having Brianne share her story with us at Broad-ly Speaking. It’s no mean feat condensing your journey down into a short four-minute speaking time, but Brianne hit the nail on the head, blending humour and real vulnerability into her talk. She was incredibly relatable, relaxed and down to earth. She was also not afraid to speak honestly, which is something we hugely value. Her talk was polished and professional without feeling overly crafted and rehearsed. We had so much great feedback after the event from women who felt really moved by her references to imposter syndrome. We feel very grateful to have had her with us and would have her back again in a flash!”
