I recently featured as part of the 10th Anniversary of Aurora, Advance HE's leadership development initiative for women.


Get the training your team deserves by engaging professional actors for an authentic experience.


I work extensively as a corporate role player and facilitator. Born and raised in central Africa, and having lived and worked in the UK, the USA, Europe and the UAE, my vast international experience gives me a unique perspective on cross-cultural spaces. 

My experience encompasses finance and banking, insurance, engineering, customer service, higher education, and more. Clients include IE University (Madrid), Travesti Theatre, the UK Police (witness protection training), Emeritus, SAE Institute Dubai, The Junction Academy.

"The art of communication is the language of leadership"


Babies and toddlers live there almost constantly. Great performers work in this state. Great athletes win in it. Great teachers teach in it. Every great communicator speaks from this place. It is when we are fully present that we do our best work and make our deepest impression on others.

Executive presence training is an investment in your current and future self. It is the gift that keeps on giving.


2-hour workshop giving you the tools to explore your presence potential.

  • The Three Circles of Energy: a method created by world leading acting and voice coach Professor Patsy Rodenburg OBE

  • ‘The Shape of You’ (with apologies to Ed Sheeran) – how your posture and gestures speak volumes

  • Vocal techniques: variety, pitch, projection, articulation, tone, resonance, rhythm, pause, pace and why vowels and consonants matter

  • Listening skills: being present and holding space for others is a leadership skill

This workshop can be adapted to fit into a corporate training programme or role play day. I can also provide it as a series of 20-minute 'morning snacks' over the working week.


  • Supports the growth of your confidence

  • Strengthens your communication skills

  • Elevates your personal and professional impact

  • Enhances your active listening

  • Builds your authentic leadership presence (it's not about having to "fake it till you make it")



Did you know that stories are 22 times more memorable than facts? Did you know that 90% of people daydream in meetings, creating stories in their heads?

Stories have been told for thousands of years. Instead of sharing facts about numeric outcomes, take your listeners on a journey that lets them see and feel what getting to the goal will be like for them. Stories don’t make you less professional; they make you more human.


In this 2-hour workshop, learn how to create and deliver powerful, unforgettable presentations:

  • Storytelling: structures, hooks, imagery and engaging your audience

  • Dump the PPT (or use it with minimalistic skill)

  • Energise your voice with vocal skills eg: articulation, pause and pace, projection - and how breath supports a powerful voice

  • Stage fright - let's not pretend this doesn't exist, but there are ways to harness it

This workshop can be adapted to fit into a corporate training programme or role play day. I can also provide it as a series of 20-minute 'morning snacks' over the working week.


  • Inspire your audience

  • Build trust and reinforce relationships with clients

  • Drive change

  • Bring dry facts and figures to life

  • Sell and motivate

"Human presence is a real and tangible force. It transforms all around it. When you speak with full presence your words live, inspire, provoke and prevail"

Having worked several times with Josie in Dubai, I would highly recommend her for facilitating both corporate and personal development.

Helena Green

Artistic Director, Travesti Theatre


BA (Hons) | MA | PGCE | FTCL

Following my first degree in Drama from the University of Bristol, I began my career with BBC radio, reporting live and producing a range of content for programmes across the north and north east. I have recorded several corporate, educational and creative voice-overs: I am the voice of Oxford Park and Ride and have narrated for giant of the music industry, Sami Yusuf on My Song

As an actor, I have appeared in award-winning short films (e.g. Seen and Heard, Inner Eye Productions) and I tour internationally with my theatre company, Little Britches, playing Anne Hathaway in Vern Theissen’s ‘Shakespeare’s Will’. More recently, I directed Mike Bartlett’s ‘Bull’ in Dubai, using playground games and dark clown as inspiration. I am a Fellow of Trinity College London (Performing Speech and Drama) as well as a qualified and experienced Secondary English teacher.

In 2022, I went to back to (drama) school, completing my MA in Actor Training & Coaching at leading Conservatoire, the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London. My MA thesis centred on ‘presence’ in leadership training, an ongoing area of interest and expertise.

I frequently blend theatre techniques into my work, derived inspiration from theatre and voice practitioners such as Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov, Anne Bogart and Professor Patsy Rodenburg OBE (with whom I recently trained). 

​I am a member of British Actors Equity and Spotlight.
