Juliette Lee is a poet, executive coach, facilitator and award-winning speaker for the leading chief executive organisation, Vistage. A former chemical engineer with chemicals giant ICI, she spent 25 years in the industrial north of England before returning to her native Scotland in 2013.
Juliette enjoys working with the hidden layers and texture of human stories to stimulate growth, deepen self-awareness and release creativity.
For the past four years, she has designed and facilitated the Mother Tongue Other Tongue (MTOT) workshops for SCILT (Scotland's national centre for languages) multilingual poetry competition in schools. The project enables teachers to inspire their pupils with the power of writing poetry as a way to honour both cultural identity and individuality.
She is a member of The Others group of poets and Women with Fierce Words. So far, she has been published in The BeZine (US) and Untitled (Falkirk).
Originally from Glasgow, Juliette now lives by the sea in Queensferry with her two cats, writes poetry and rides horses whenever she can.
What do you do when you find yourself between a rock and a hard place? Impossible choices drive us over the grey, craggy edges of carefully laid plans and secure predictable lives, into the creative fire of imagination.
