I am an experienced teacher of English, specialising in creative writing. Having penned several collections of poems & short stories, I am very familiar with the creative process, particularly how to cultivate a fertile imagination. Self-expression of this kind is increasingly important in today's society, as it helps to maintain a balanced and secure sense of emotional & mental wellbeing amongst those who live in our highly-pressured system. My educational approach is based on encouraging students to believe in their innate potential and to facilitate a confident and refined writing style. In order to provide rich stimuli for inspiration, I vary my techniques to encompass a broad range of learning styles, through the use of pictures, discussion, sensory prompts, music and memory. I draw on the work of Joseph Campbell and Christopher Vogler with regards to plot shaping and character archetypes for stories; for poetry composition, I am inspired by the poetry handbooks of revered poets, Ted Hughes & Mary Oliver. The outcome is always fulfilling for me as a teacher, since the literary pieces created have depth, beauty and sincerity.

Pendulum In Action isn’t something they’ll teach you in business school… Developed by Roy H. Williams and Michael R. Drew, Pendulum In Action is a marketing and trend forecasting system designed for people who like to break the rules. It’s a way of approaching your customers in a unique style… one that builds intimate relationships based on predicting their needs. Since its pre-release, industry leaders have been raving about the accompanying book, Pendulum, with Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos, describing it as “startling insights and perspectives for anyone who wants to be successful now or in the future.” Now these guys walk their talk. Roy has used this system himself for almost 10 years, including when crafting ad campaigns for De Beers, Rolex, and what were at the time (thanks to his marketing) the two fastest growing franchises in North America. Michael has been using Pendulum for around 8 years, drawing on the techniques to place 74 consecutive books onto National Best-sellers lists (a feat making him the world’s most successful book promoter). Both Roy and Michael have been teaching this replicable system to their private clients for a number of years and seeing big results – including increasing audience size by 29% within a year for one client and almost doubling business revenue within six months. Now, after almost 10 years of testing and refining, Roy H. Williams and Michael R. Drew have worked with a team to turn their these powerful concepts into an online training program.
