I speak in the way I write: with honesty, warmth and wit. Life is too short for bullsh**. Let’s try and look at things with a cool, clear eye, but let’s also try to have a nice time.

I’m an experienced keynote speaker. I’ve given speeches at conferences, universities, council chambers, literary festivals and at venues ranging from sports halls to the Cambridge Union and the House of Commons.

I speak on a wide range of topics, with a particular focus on building resilience, women in leadership and finding fulfilment, in work and life.


Christina gave the keynote speech at our annual conference. It was a tremendously poignant, moving, passionate speech, which captivated and moved us all.

It was standing room only in the Council Chamber to hear Christina speak. People have been buzzing all week. It was such an inspiring, simple, cost-free message.
Carmel Millar

Christina mesmerised the Future of Work is Human Festival with her very personal story of work and identity, resilience and recovery. Heartbreaking and heartwarming in equal measure. You could have heard a pin drop.
