Speaking

As a professional with a variety of expertise and interests, I have spoken at many meetings, conferences, and conventions. I welcome hearing from you if you believe I can fulfill a role for an upcoming engagement. I enjoy connecting with and impacting my audience. In many of my talks, I relate my experiences and successes that allow me to guide leaders, teams, and professionals through various business and personal challenges. What I do is combine my practical experience and your goals to demonstrate to the audience how to overcome the particular obstacles you are facing.

I am flattered that I receive very positive reviews whenever I speak at organizational workshops, conferences, and corporate events. I can connect with audiences across all industries. I focus on giving them strategies and tools to implement in their professional and personal lives.

I speak on a variety of subjects that are beneficial to large corporations, smaller businesses, nonprofit organizations, and any gathering of entrepreneurs. All of my workshops can be adapted to fit into the constraints of speaking to a group.

Here is one of my most requested topics for talking with larger gatherings:

The Dynamics of Leadership and Influence

Once you learn the techniques of leadership and influence, your confidence to lead will improve. Leadership does not necessarily come naturally to everyone, but you can learn its techniques. Then experience refines it. Leadership is never easy, as you will need to make decisions and face challenges, but it can become natural and rewarding.
This talk educates the audience in the finer points of leadership and influence. I go through the components of both skills and then illustrate how to weave them together to be an incredibly effective leader.

Speech Highlights:

  • The true meaning of leadership
  • How to develop a leadership mindset
  • Your leadership style (and that of others)
  • How to influence others towards a mutually desired vision
  • Five keys to working with your team to achieve your desired results

I do repackage my workshop topics into a speech format. Here is a synopsis of the topics I talk on that I adapt from my workshops. You can find their details on the workshop page.

7 Simple Steps to Emotional Intelligence: Best Emotional Intelligence Secrets Revealed

An employee with high emotional intelligence can manage his or her impulses, communicate with others effectively, manage change well, solve problems, and use humor to build rapport in stressful situations. These employees also have empathy, remain optimistic even in the face of adversity, and are gifted at educating and persuading in a sales situation and resolving customer complaints in a client service role.

Team Development of High Performing Teams

For most of us, teamwork is a part of everyday life. Whether it is at home, in the community, or at work, we are often expected to be a functional part of a performing team. Having a strong team will benefit any organization and will lead to more successes than not. This workshop encourages you to explore the different aspects of a team, as well as ways that you can become a top-notch team performer.

Mindfulness Mastery: Cultivating a High Performance Mindset

Mindfulness is a term frequently misunderstood. Pure mindfulness encourages a person to live in the present while addressing the danger of distorted thinking. By learning to stay in tune with both their mental and emotional sides, people can improve their perspective to enhance their personal and professional success. I show you how to deal with the unexpected situations that can otherwise trigger emotions that make us behave in an unpredictable or self-sabotaging manner.

Results Based Resonant Relationships©: You Matter! People Matter! Community Matters!

Business relationships have become a crucial part of the world today. As a leader, achiever, or an entrepreneur, business relationships are your currency. It is important to focus attention on building resonant relationships. To be truly effective, relationship building must become one of the priorities of your professional life. I show you that relationships can turn your life around.

Discovering Your Purpose: The Driver of Success

Knowing your purpose allows you to succeed in life. A clarity of purpose blossoms into the passion, vision, goals, and a mission to achieve them. The purpose is the “WHY” that galvanizes passion and allows a person to make a difference. Passion is the energy that produces brilliance. What a person loves to do is what makes them come alive.
