A professional speaker for 40 years, Rikki Arundel has faced considerable challenges. Starting in financial services, their speaking expertise morphed through sales and marketing to Technology. They helped set up six toastmasters clubs and two associations and then founded this association, the PSA.
But their career as a speaker almost ended in 2002 when they changed gender. Faced with considerable discrimination they switched expertise again, completing a master’s degree in gender research and establishing themselves as a diversity expert.
Rikki now delivers online and offline presentations and workshops on gender equality public speaking and storytelling, and has developed a reputation for engaging audiences through their use of entertaining and inspiring stories.
