Wearing my Speaking Hat, I engage my audiences using real life stories. I challenge them to look at what’s possible, rather than dwelling on the opposite.
My presentations cover a range of topics. They’re designed to encourage audiences to consider what they allow into their minds and the impact that may have. By making good choices when life throws a curve ball, the outcome can be more favourable.
Having lost two daughters for two different reasons, at two different times and two different ages, we have lived through some tough stuff. We’ve learnt that we always have a choice as to how we respond to what life throws at us.

Gail Miller is a brilliant story teller. Her manner is engaging and the delivery is professional, well-paced and targeted perfectly.
Gail’s recent author talk at Burnside Library was a complete success.
She shared a personal journey together with some of her resilience tools that left the audience feeling motivated and empowered; A lovely way to celebrate National Seniors Day.

I really enjoyed your incredible speech at the Professional Speakers of Australia SA event last Tuesday.
You were engaging, and informative, funny and poignant, and I think everyone, including me, really loved your message “You are what you Think & Say.”
I would not hesitate to recommend you as a speaker for other people’s events.

Gail’s presentation on behalf of the Marion Library Service on the Aged Care process as outlined in her book ‘5 Easy Ways to Solve the Aged Care Puzzle’ was informative and professional.
It enabled our community to access information that many of them were unaware of and help them find resources to assist them in helping their loved ones enter the Aged Care system.

As a workshop facilitator I’m able to adjust my programs to suit a particular workplace environment or for a public setting.
A broad range of topics can be covered, including my Life Happens – Dealing with the Tough Stuff and Simplifying Aged Care topics.
Aged Care issues may not seem relevant in the workplace. However, untold 40 – 70 year olds are frazzled by the complexities of sorting the Aged Care process for their folks. With the right information, it can be made so much easier.
The workshops are engaging, packed full of information and strategies to be implemented immediately. Simple changes can make a difference in your workplace and/or home. And there’s plenty of time for questions …

Be a Workplace Trend-Setter
In the interest of Making Lives Easier within your workplace – I offer a 90 minute Workshop to get your staff up-to-speed on what to expect when their folk’s needs change.
A stroke / broken bone / heart attack can change things in an instant.
Without a plan, the hospital system will take over, leaving the family little or no choice. With a Plan you maintain a CHOICE and achieve better outcomes to provide the best Quality of Life for your elderly relative.
Aged Care Explained – Simplifying Aged Care Issues
Aged Care issues are creating very costly distractions in the workplace. With parents phoning and constantly demanding attention during work time, staff are often frazzled. They need time to search for an Aged Care Home vacancy or where the right In-Home services can be found – BUT where to start?
Learn about the professionals who can do the entire process, allowing your staff to become more attentive and productive at work –
AND less stressed.
90 minute workshop
- How the Aged Care system works in Australia
- How to register the elderly in the system
- How the right professionals will ensure a quality outcome for your elderly relative
- Why good Aged Care specific financial advice is helpful
- Why everyone needs a Will, Power of Attorney and Advance Care Directive
- Why Decluttering and Right-Sizing should be done before the elderly think they need it
- And much more
With the right information and by outsourcing to the right professionals, stress levels are reduced for working people. This leaves more room to spend quality time with their elderly relatives. No more slogging through the complexities of an ever changing system!
What qualifies me to run Workshops?
Through dealing with life’s unexpected curveballs and navigating many types of challenges, I have experience to share with others. Successfully navigating challenges depends on the choices we make.
I lived in a home with disability after Mum lost a leg in a car accident in 1974. Aged 74 she became a paraplegic after surgery didn’t go as planned. I understand what it’s like when people stare or talk about someone just because they’re different.
Unscrambling Grief takes you on the roller-coaster ride of emotions we experienced when we lost two children. Grief comes in a multitude of packages, but there can be light at the end of the tunnel – if we choose to see it.
When my mother-in-law needed our emotional support, I was tearing my hair out filling in paperwork for that illusive Aged Care Home vacancy! With her safely and happily settled in a wonderful home, I discovered that professionals could have helped me.
Why had no one told me about them? Perhaps because, like me, they didn’t know they existed. With research I found 5 different types of professional who could have made things easier. After interviewing them, I wrote a book to simplify things for others – 5 Easy Ways to Solve the Aged Care Puzzle
Life experiences are the best way to learn a lesson!
