Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is…

The title of this post is a well-known lyric by the rapper, father and Queen Bey’s bae, Jay-Z. Raise your hand if you knew that!

I couldn’t think of a better way to title this post than that, to be honest because as I develop this bio, it is like I am having a reintroduction to me. And this written experience has been more for myself than anybody else. ‘Cathartic’ also springs to mind. It helps to write your ‘you’ down to get clarity on who you are and what you are doing in life, and WHY you do what you do…

Knowing what you do, who you are and why you do what you do can help create clarity and direction to propel you to create your preferred future.

So…allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is…

Abs. And…

Me: the happy, global, UCL-Graduated coach, speaker, traveller

I jump. I am the Director of AMPLIFY Learning. I am happy. I am global. I am a traveller. I am a 2012 UCL Law graduate. I am a believer in the power of your words to shape your life and future. (Make them positive!) I am a coach. I am a motivational speaker.


But I can’t stop there. Let me expand…

I jump. I am the 2015 British Champion. As one of Britain’s top female long jumpers, over the past decade my career highlights include representing GB at the 2012 European Championships and persevering through injuries and setbacks to become 2015 British Champion.

I am the Director of AMPLIFY Learning, a business specifically designed to enhance performance, develop resilience and nurture wellness. AMPLIFY Learning engages learners worldwide and at every level of life, business and education in four ways:

  • Private academic tuition – visit Manchester Tutors
  • Peak performance, resilience and wellness courses and coaching – visit AMPLIFY (any website developers get in touch!)
  • Motivational talks and keynote speeches – contact me 
  • Sports coaching and sports-centred educational days – Remember this one?

In those four capacities above I have worked with:

  • Schools, colleges and universities across the UK
  • Private educational centres, including language schools in the UK & Europe
  • Companies – small, medium and large in the UK & USA
  • Community Sports foundations and athletics clubs in the UK
Speaking last week at an event in my role as ‘Motivational Speaker’ with AMPLIFY Learning

I am continually developing a culture that is friendly and fun, engaging and enthusiastic, and passionate and purposeful about serving others and offering valuable service that inevitably produces success.

I am happy. I bring a smile to every interaction. If I’m not smiling when you meet me and you’ve paid for a service or product, you’ll get your money back – I promise! In one teaching post, I was awarded with the certificate: ‘most likely to make a student smile’. It is a proven fact that we all benefit from learning within a positive emotional environment. Let’s create that together!

I am global. I am a traveller. Travel invites you to experience new cultures, food and people. That is why I travel to new places as often as possible, whether in the UK, Europe or across the globe. I endeavour to share my experiences with others through conversation, blogs, vlogs (coming soon) and other mediums to teach and inspire.

I visited Rome, Italy at the weekend. This is me standing ‘outside’ the Vatican. BEAUTIFUL PLACE!

I am a 2012 UCL Law graduate. I learned from the best and I desire to share that with others. During my years of study, I lived in Aix-en-Provence, France for one year to develop my French-language skills and study the French legal system. Tutoring both Law and French allows me to continue to practice and apply the skills I learned at UCL (University College London) and Aix, whilst inspiring and equipping the next generation with the tools for learning and fulfilling their potential.

I am a believer in the power of your words to shape your life and future. It is my mission to remove ‘can’t’ and ‘impossible’ from my learners’ lips, to help them develop a greater level of self-confidence and belief, to dare them to dream bigger, and to see them make the ‘impossible’ possible.

That’s me in a [really large] nutshell.

Your turn…who are you?
