Founder and National Director of Australian Writers' Centre, Australia's leading centre for writing courses.
Introduction
I love words. Books, blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking, Google+ing, and Storytelling.

Author of Power Stories: The 8 Stories You MUST Tell to Build an Epic Business (Wiley). www.PowerStoriesBook.com

I'm Founder and National Director of the Australian Writers' Centre,
which is Australia's leading centre for writing courses. There are online and face-to-face writing courses and students enrol from around the world. More than 20,000 students have studied with us.

I'm also a journalist and small business commentator. My writing appears in some of  Australia's most respected publications.

I have a personal blog at www.ValerieKhoo.com where you can keep up to date on what's going on in my work and life. Be warned: you'll also find many gratuitous pictures of my fluffy pets.
