    I can help! Because I have built my brand from the bottom up from an at-home mum who simply loved to cook to being a magazine columnist and publish cookbook author in under 2 years. I have learnt so much along the way that I would love to share with you and your business.

    It doesn't have to be just food, my class is for anyone! Or If you would prefer a one-on-one class just for you (I can come to you or we can Skype), please see my other reward.

    (AND, you can claim these classes as a business expense as I am GST registered!)

    The class will include:
    • My story and how I went from an at home mum to a published author
    • Tips on styling and photography
    • How to apply those styling and photography skills to your website and social media pages
    • How to gain genuine, engaging social media followers (without having to pay for them!)
    • A chance to meet people within your creative community to network with

    You will also receive:
    • A personally signed first-edition copy of my new cookbook sent anywhere in the world when it arrives
    • at the workshop, all class notes will be beautifully printed for you to take home
