Frederika is a Professional Speaker, certified Laughter Yoga Leader and Co-Founder of the ‘RWS Resilience Wellbeing Success’ programme*. Through her keynotes and workshops, she helps individuals and organisations by changing and challenging thinking and behaviour with very simple, easy-to-implement happiness and resilience techniques.
Peppered with a sprinkling of culinary references, gentle humour and a real zest for life, her sessions are insightful, thought provoking and emotionally charged, yet lively and upbeat. Frederika has worked in recruitment, education, marketing and food, and has set up and run small businesses. As an expert in her field, she has been interviewed on TV (BBC Breakfast, ITV Calendar News), BBC and other radio stations all over the UK, and featured and quoted in various publications. Frederika is also a guest blogger for Huffington Post UK and author of the book ‘Recipe for Happiness: 9 Essential Ingredients for a Happy Life’.
Born in Italy, of dual Italian and German nationalities, she grew up in Luxembourg, then moved to the UK in 1990 to study at the University of Bradford. After obtaining her BSc Honours in Business and Management, Frederika undertook post-graduate studies in education and became a qualified teacher.
Frederika is available to deliver keynote speeches and lively, highly interactive workshops to businesses, not-for-profit organisations and schools (pupil sessions and teacher training / CPD days). Rather than have a list of ‘set’ keynote speeches and workshops, Frederika tailors the titles and contents of her sessions to her audiences.
*The RWS | Resilience Wellbeing Success Programme is a very successful programme for schools, which typically runs over 9-11 weeks, but can also be delivered as a bespoke half- or full-day workshop for businesses and not-for-profit organisations.
