From Squeak to Roar is a unique portrayal of how people show up in business, through the metaphor of seventeen different animals. It is a guide that emerged from an eight-year direct experience in the Relationship Marketing industry, though it can be used for any collaborative group dynamic. It is a fun, colourful depiction that offers clarity and insight to those with a heart of service and contribution. It is a success tool to influence your team with integrity. In an industry that has received so much bad press, is it possible that there is a way to do it right?

I believe there is and it is by being authentic and bringing who you are to what you do. By understanding the characteristics and stages of our diverse teams, we are better equipped to offer the right kind of support. In this book you will learn how to ‘inspire’ rather than ‘motivate’. One comes from within and is real, the other is tedious, ineffective and atrophies fast. By accepting each other, we inspire and build long-term relationships and great success in our businesses. In this book you will find significance in Relationship Marketing and discover why it has become the next major profession. One I believe could rebuild the middle class and bring vigour to our economy.

Radical Trust is one woman’s journey through the fire of surrender into the deep pool of listening. It is a story about waking up out of the swamp of confusion the mind serves up, into something far deeper that knows the truth and guides us. This book is a story of feeling our feelings not as a pure guide but to liberate their missive. It is about listening to and acting upon the messages life delivers by way of symbols, relationships and encounters. Finally Radical Trust helps the reader find the courage to follow their own path and deliver the gifts they were born with. It is ultimately a story of inspiration and transformation on many levels and in profound ways.


The Story of Cabroi

YOU CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO BE. That is the key message in this favourite children (of all ages) story.  Follow the brave adventures of the little ferry boat as she strives for her dreams.  Hear how she becomes tired of her tedious life of going back and forth on the hour, consistent and unfaltering.  Then, through eventual readiness, the ferry boat leaves by night into her new life. The story continues as she discovers an inner power giving her direction.

Listen all the way to the end and find out how she becomes a beautiful sailboat and awakens as Cabroi.
This story thrills the child in all of us while delivering some profound and abiding gems.
