Coleen has over twenty years experience to bring to the bereaved family’s special occasion. Most recently she has channelled her experience into the world of funeral celebrancy.
Coleen has officiated at funerals for the well-known, some of whom would be household names. In the congregations there have been the great and the good. No pressure here then!
She has also officiated at the funerals for people who are less well known. No life is ordinary and her ceremonies are tailored to make them reflect the importance of the life once lived by the individuals. This is key to the families involved, as they say good bye to their loved ones.
She has been successful in the fast moving world of event management. Over the years Coleen introduced an impressive line-up of keynote speakers to audiences largely in excess of 100 people.
Coleen’s strengths lie in her abilities across many areas. She has detailed organisational skills; good presentation skills, interviewing and writing skills; is punctual and well presented. Most importantly perhaps for the families left behind, she has impressive listening skills. This leads to a scenario of being able to make every occasion a unique experience.
Previously, Coleen has interviewed, sat with over dinner and introduced, to discerning audiences, the following well-known individuals: Lord Seb Coe; Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson; Alastair Campbell; Matthew Syed; John Sergeant and Gyles Brandreth to name but a few. These events have taken place at large hotels throughout Europe, demonstrating the need for working with others in a flexible and time responsive manner.
In addition to these skills she has developed conference programmes and worked successfully as an independent marketing and sales consultant to help expand small and medium sized companies.
For individual ceremonies, tailored to the requirements of the grieving family, Coleen is the person who can act reliably on their part.
