Gillian Fortune – Founder and Trainer

As well as being the founder of the company, I am also the designer and trainer of Stress Express, the Keynote Speaker and the face of the organisation so I thought I would take up a bit of space to introduce myself.

As a Senior Manager for 20 years and CEO for 15 years I have developed relevant skills, qualifications and experience in Psychology; Leadership; Management; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); I am also a Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP) Practitioner and Coach. More importantly though - I have a great deal of life experience and emotional intelligence.


I have been up, down and everything in between. I am funny. I fall over my own feet a lot. I am kind. I am fair. I am empowering, bodacious and resilient. But most of all – I am what I teach. I regularly use every technique I teach to empower others to tackle stress because I designed or developed them to get myself through some really difficult times.


I teach people how to get back up when life knocks them flat. I like information to be straightforward, practical and effective and the Stress Express way of working suits me. What I have discovered is that many other people like it too!
