Meet the Speaker

Zoe’s 15-year career has been dedicated to connecting with people and supporting them to grow, learn and develop.


In 2020 Zoe set up Build it Brilliant to help people in the helping professions use online technology to start, grow and scale their private practices. This is a combination of her expertise from a degree in Business & Finance, 10 years designing e-learning for multinational companies and another 10 years of building her own private practice.

Zoe is a tech geek with a big heart who helps people who make a difference in the world to design online products, courses and programmes so they can build their own brilliant business. If you, or your audience, want help to market themselves effectively or build recurring income, Zoe can help.


Zoe set up a company with £750 and turned it into a full-time career, she built herself an office out of wooden pallets and she learnt to ride a motorbike at 34 years old. Throughout her life Zoe has taken leaps of faith and learnt what it’s like to feel the fear and do it anyway. Her can do attitude, zest for life and authentic nature inspire others to do the same and her therapeutic skills enable her to nurture and support others through their journey.
