Speaking

I specialize in creating experiential, engaging and inspiring educational sessions that offer practical takeaways.

Whether I’m speaking to a large group of attendees at your conference, or facilitating a workshop with a small group of your employees, I design each session to meet the needs of the audience using the following guiding principles:

  • It’s important for all content to be grounded in evidence-based approaches to leadership
  • Your audience will learn best when they are an active participant in the learning experience
  • The best way to ensure behavior change is to leave your participants with easy-to-use, high-impact tools and strategies
