Frances Edmonds joined the Commission of the European Union in Brussels as an international conference interpreter. For over a decade, she worked to facilitate communication and cooperation within all the major international organisations. She followed the England cricket team on its tour of the West Indies. It was there that she wrote her first and highly controversial best-seller ‘Another Bloody Tour’ which launched her into her present career as writer, broadcaster, moderator, lecturer and speaker. Frances often appears as a presenter, news reviewer, guest and panellist on television and radio. Honorary fellow of the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs for her promotion of British business interests, she is a regular contributor to a wide range of publications. She genuinely understands business issues and draws on her own experiences in developing a highly successful construction company to deliver relevant and realistic strategies for personal and professional fulfilment. Frances’ unique linguistic, creative and business background combined with an iconoclastic sense of humour are key to her enduring popularity as a humorous and motivational speaker and brilliant moderator.
