BE INSPIRED TO BE SEEN AND HEARD.
USE YOUR VOICE TO UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL
We say no when we want to say yes. We say yes to be accepted and liked. We fear rejection and ridicule, so we hold back on what we want to say. But our voice has worthiness, authenticity, and power to achieve our most incredible personal and professional goals. Speak Up is an interactive and inspiring keynote that gives practical tools to gain communication confidence and be truly seen and heard.
Public speaking gets a bad reputation. It is inaccurately labeled as a “soft skill” and listed as one of American’s greatest fears. However, when we reframe public speaking as an opportunity to be seen and heard and embrace the science and the art of the craft, we see monumental breakthroughs in our personal and professional lives! Speak Easy is an interactive and inspirational keynote giving audiences practical tools for confident, powerful, and joyful communication.
STAND OUT STORIES
AUTHENTIC STORYTELLING TO ENERGIZE AND INSPIRE
We are told to share our stories and that our stories matter. Yet, most don’t have the training or the space for cultivating and sharing those stories. Through understanding brain-based storytelling research, we can find the tools to use our voice and speak up for what matters most to us. Stand Out Stories is an inspirational and interactive keynote using storytelling to create breakthroughs in our personal and professional lives.
Keynotes available for workshops and breakout sessions.
