I welcome opportunities to speak to photographers about the power of PR and content.

Interested in having me present at a photography event you’re planning? Or, are you hosting a training workshop or summit within your photography community and want a PR and content expert to host a talk?

The Hair of The Dog Summit

After being interviewed in March 2023 by Nicole Begley on her Hair of the Dog photography podcast (now renamed to the ‘Freedom Focus Photography’ podcast), I later took part in her annual ‘Hair of the Dog ‘ Summit.  

During this international online event, I led a workshop on PR for pet photographers for many hundreds of attendees, as well as created resources for V.I.P. Summit attendees. It was an honour to appear alongside many leading names in the world of pet photography and pet photography marketing.

I look forward to working with Zoe again in the future.”

RISE: Professional Female Photographers

RISE was a membership for professional female photographers (now closed), founded by photographer Karen Massey. In 2021, I became an Ambassador for RISE and supplied a training on how to secure valuable free publicity in the media.

Other Speaking Testimonials

“I was privileged to have Zoe on my Speaker Panel at the “Inspiring Success Business Retreat”. Zoe led a fabulous talk and interactive session on PR and shared tips on how to pitch to the media. The ladies attending were highly complimentary of Zoe’s presentation and the value given. I’d highly recommend Zoe to anyone wishing to have an inspirational speaker who is clearly passionate and highly knowledgeable about PR and the media.”
Clare Farthing, Business Coach
“Zoe came to speak to our networking group about finding and operating successfully in a niche. What a great session. Using her considerable personal experience in niche-ing down she helped, the mostly solopreneurs, understand how important it could be to try not to be all things to everyone and by finding and communicating clearly about your offer in a particular market segment you could leverage your expertise and work with ideal clients. Really useful and practical insights. Lots of great feedback from the group too.”
Jackie Richmond, Marketing & Communications Manager
“We had the pleasure of having Zoe lead a workshop for us on PR. Zoe’s approachability and warmth make her a pleasure to work with and learn from. She has a wealth of knowledge which has been extremely beneficial to not only me but also to my community of small business owners. You could not wish to work with anyone better. Thank you, Zoe!”
Laura Jane Griffiths, Business Coach
“I was thrilled to have Zoe present to my online membership clients recently. I am always looking to bring in high-quality professionals to share their knowledge in the group and Zoe was exceptional. She was able to present in a clear and succinct way a topic that can often feel overwhelming and the feedback I got from my members was that they found her presentation really useful. I’d happily work with Zoe again and highly recommend her services.”
Heather Angell, Business Coach
