We are all Unique Walking Stories Just Waiting to be Told

Kez Wickham St George is the driver of her own creativity and her passion is to inspire and nurture others to tell their stories. Her values are simple; when you touch a heart; we can change a life. By encouraging you to write or journal her belief is, it will only add value to your life. Traveling extensively including the width and breath of Australia, she has collecting stories and experiences. Now with nine novels published, the first three Adventures in the outback published internationally, three nationally. Two children’s books now reside in many different countries and with two Royal families. Beginning of 2019 her first book of poetry, Entwined was published, forming a corridor between the City of Rockingham and Ako, its sister city, in Japan to bring the poets and artists together. Plus an invitation to be a guest speaker at a writer’s retreat at Crom Castle Dublin Ireland late November 2019. And in 2020 Kez novel Metal Mermaid became a number one best seller in her category of adventure caravanning. Kez is also a popular speaker at many local events; ever the storyteller. However mentoring and consulting to assist others to tell their stories has become a large part of her life, running effective creative writing workshops plus creative journaling workshops for those that have a story to tell. Encouraging people to do what they love has resulted in four of her writing protégés from 2018/19 being published authors.

After 35yrs in nursing across many specialties and levels of heath, Toni sat down in 2018 to write about her life after being encouraged to do so during her healing and self-discovery processes.

Resilience - Memoir of a Broken Little Girl discovering a woman of strength and beauty, was published in January 2019. In her book Toni talks candidly about her colorful life. This powerful account is an unexpected page turner that has you on the edge of your seat wondering what happens next. From her early childhood battle with a congenital facial defect, through debilitating battles in school to her traumatic entry into adult world. It details her struggle with anxiety and depression, low self-esteem and a longing for love and happiness.

After publishing her memoir Toni embarked on a marketing strategy that included working with and on social media, increasing her social media presence and creating networks of people. During this time, she also produced the audio book and was introduced to the power of the spoken word. This led to a conversation about podcasting, a phone call about online radio and its difference to podcasting and Radio Toni was born.

Toni now has multiple live streaming TV radio shows on different platforms based in the USA and broadcasting to the world, including her own channel on Binge TV Networks. She delivers collaborative co-hosted business shows that create brand awareness and helps companies leverage the power of live streaming media. She uses the power of the spoken word to tell the stories that the world needs to hear. Believing that everybody and every business has a story, everyone has something to say and she is determined to help you say it.
