Through Strategic Consulting & Core Clarity...
Liz acts as a formal strategic 'sounding board' in her capacity as an NED to Beatons Tearooms and Bookshop group and informally to a number of other clients. 'Core Clarity' is a simple strategic model for drilling down to the 'beneath-the-brand' essence of a business which she has used with many companies, particularly when growing, fund-raising or shifting strategic direction. [Only available to those outside the tearoom industry!]

'There is also a major secret weapon I used which was provided by the one and only Liz Darcy Jones. Her voice and content support session was the underpinning of my confidence - without rehearsing once.'
Nora Zimerman, Website Creator & Graphic Designer, Sept '16
‘To me, public speaking felt like the equivalent of white-water rafting! I learned how to remain present whilst speaking - I found that not only did other people listen to me but, perhaps more importantly, I learned to listen to myself.’
Belinda, Clinical Nutritionist and Teacher
Poetry & Performance
Poetry and spoken word can be very powerful within business. Speaking, performing or recording audios are activities I thrive on serving. You 're welcome to 'hire my voice' for your business, conference or to commission a poem or song to embed your brand in the hearts of your audience (unavailable to those in the tearooms industry).
I'd love to help your occasion be memorable and entertaining.
'She was glorious (she usually is).'
James Webster, Sabotage Review
Performances, radio and speaking engagements include: The Hairy Bikers, BBC 2 Jeremy Vine Show, BBC regional stations, St Ives September Festival, Beatons Tearooms (hosts all new tearoom launches), Warwick Literary Festival, Wenlock Poetry Festival and many more.
