Hiya! I’m Shea Wong – a dual citizen (USA-UK) living in London. I write, and knit, and garden. I’m a wife, mother, MBA student, and activist. I make a mean Portal birthday cake.
Booking: I am currently booked till the end of 2016, but I’m always willing to do Skype interviews/presentations in lieu of in person bookings. Feel free to contact me for details.
I have various talks ready for you, including :
- mental health anti-stigma (especially topics of relationships and work/life balance)
- social media safety (perfect for teenagers, individuals starting a new job, and even businesses!)
- how to present with confidence in a business/academic setting
I’m based out of London, but can travel within 3 hours to work with you on a day-rate basis, or overnight for longer trips. I can create bespoke presentations to meet the needs of your group, and am highly proficient in large group presenting. Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line PRESENTER, if you would like more information.
Mental health awareness/stigma: My passion is helping groups overcome their internal biases concerning mental health, and working together towards acceptance. I’ve been a guest on Radio 4’s Today show as well as Sky News at 5, and BBC’s Academy of Journalism, a keynote speaker for Time to Change’s StoryCamp, and been in national campaigns for UK and US-based charities (I’ve even been a cartoon!). In addition, I’ve written and spoken about mental health issues for ITN, Channel 4, BBC 5 Live, Time To Change, Huffington Post, Balance Paper, One in Four, That’s Life, and Take a Break magazines. I’ve also served as a media and television consultant for plot-lines concerning bipolar and mental health.
I’m proud to say my mental health mobile app, entitled “How Are You Doing?”, is in beta testing phase, with hope for a roll out by the end of 2016. Check its page out here – haydapp.com.
Social Media/Internet/Technology/Politics/Motherhood/Addendum: As a mum and geek, I’m intimately aware of how social media can damage a reputation. From jobs to Uni applications, people are checking up on your social media presence – do you have your best foot forward? I will work with you, your child, or your small business to clean up your online presence, and move forward safely. Don’t let a rude picture from 10 years ago ruin your chance at a dream school or job! I’ve been featured in BBC World Service (television and radio), BBC Newsbeat, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Wales, Good Morning Wales, Consumerist, as well as written for Squidoo’s Upmarket, GeekFamily 2.1, and Technorati.
Presenting for business: With a BFA in acting and voice, and mid-way through my MBA, I understand the unique needs of the modern office. I will teach you poise in large groups, vocal techniques, and assertiveness training that will get you noticed at the next presentation. If you’ve ever felt a bit unsure of yourself when standing in front of a Powerpoint presentation, this is for you!
