Classically trained as a vocalist, Gennie performed in front of live audiences from the age of nine in South Wales, where she was born.  In 1981 she moved to Italy where she wrote, presented and produced her own TV show in Italian, toured in a musical, worked as a children's TV presenter, a puppeteer for C5 TV in Milan, and performed singing live all over Italy.

In Britain she has presented on two television series for HTV Wales, and at live events for clients including Sony International.  She had to overcome great shyness to do this, and now combines her unique experience with the techniques she has learned to design and deliver courses in presentation and interview skills for television and radio.
