Hiya! I’m Shea Wong – an American expat 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 now taking bookings for late fall/winter 2014. 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, 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, 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.
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 the 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!
