Angela takes a light-hearted approach to the topic of leadership with a serious message about how leaders should behave in order to engage, motivate, and develop trust among their followers. She presents with her dog Harry by her side to illustrate what humans can learn about being a leader from our 4 legged friends. Angela and Harry present nationally at conferences and in-house events for clients.

Clean Up Your Language
Practice a range of powerful communication techniques designed to enhance your ability to network and build trusted relationships with potential clients.
Modelling Communication – i2l NLP Practice Group, Devizes, Wiltshire
Angela and Harry will demonstrate the almost telepathic communication and special connection that bonds them together like an invisible thread. Participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions and model the cues, signals, and beliefs that underpin Angela and Harry’s successes in the obedience ring, that can be translated into their own lives and work.
Coaching with Clean Questions
Coaching with Clean Questions is a deceptively simple and powerful process that encourages clients to connect with their goals and resolve issues in a meaningful way. Based on a set of principles that are useful for any conversation, it is an outcome based, communication and facilitation practice which has been used successfully in coaching, business, and work situations. This talk is highly practical and experiential. I will demonstrate the approach but more importantly you will learn how to apply basic practical tools that can be taken away and used with clients, and when you’re interacting with anyone.
Let Your Passion Take The Lead
During this talk I will share with you my secrets for keeping the passion alive for your work in these times of uncertainty. I will take you on a journey from my initial ah-ha moment through to how I combined my 2 great passions to build a new business. Working with my four legged friend, Harry, I have learned that it takes passion, belief, and commitment to do what you love and love what you do. Warning! This session might inspire you to want to do the same.
Be A Gentle Leader – Not A Dictator
It’s time for a new kind of leadership; one built on rapport and passion; rather than force. For years humans have commanded dogs “do what I say or I’ll punish you!” Humans often say the same thing to each other. It’s a major cause of workplace stress. With employee engagement, staff health and well-being, and compassion, are key factors in driving success and reducing stress related absence. With micro-management no longer a desirable trait. With clinical conditions such as depression and anxiety on the increase, dogs and the way we are with them can teach us much about ourselves to ensure we meet the challenges of the 21st century.
