Change the World
If you want to inspire your peers to make change happen, this interactive keynote is for you.
A transformer is someone who turns “what’s next” into reality. A transformational leader is someone who paves the path for change while inspiring others to lead. Technology and business innovators are the new rock stars. Don’t be fooled by the myth, the best leaders never get to the finish line alone. The truth is that leaders are not leaders without followers. During this high-energy keynote, your audience will tap into her/his inner transformational leader by:
- Exploring the transformer’s journey and how each of us plays a role in enabling others to change
- Identifying the types and scale of transformation and the personal motivations that hinder or help the change process
- Engaging in role-playing as change-makers and learn how to lead other people toward a common vision
- Learning from real-life examples about successful transformational tools to take back to the workplace
Trailblaze Like a Girl
Choose this keynote to offer an insider’s view into the mindsets and strategies that trailblazing women use to create the world they want to live in.
Boardrooms are coveted destinations that many of us can only dream about but never reach. For women, who make up only 18% of board seats around the globe, it’s a destination that is often beyond reach. Based on my research of the remarkable women who have forged their own paths onto public company boards, your peers will learn how to trailblaze their way to success. This exciting and uplifting keynote demystifies what it takes to go where so few have gone before by:
- Exploring the mindsets that help or hinder success against all odds
- Discovering the right time to begin the journey to a role that feels too big and too hard to obtain
- Learning the secrets to success that separate those who succeed from those who do not
- Building a personal board of directors to help you catapult yourself to the boardroom
Be the Storyteller of Your Own Transformation
Choose this keynote to enable your peers to make bold decisions that change their lives.
Mahatma Gandhi’s famous quote “Be the change that you wish to see in the world” has been used by countless leaders to inspire transformation in industry and politics. Yet, inspiring change should not start and end with a call-to-action for followers. Driving large-scale transformation starts closer at home -- with the person you see in the mirror. If you don't have your own plan for change, someone else will plan it for you. This entertaining keynote mixes humor and pointed storytelling to hone in on what it takes to expedite the journey from where each audience member is today to where she/he wants to be tomorrow by:
- Identifying typical transformation cross-roads that transcend the line between work life and personal life
- Understanding the individual change journey
- Learning how to replace fear with competence
- Mapping the steps to personal transformation
Awkward to Awesome: Create Your Power Influencer Network
Choose this keynote if you want your peers to learn how to create game-changing relationships that help them succeed in business, politics, and life.
For most people, meeting new people at networking cocktail parties is akin to getting teeth pulled. Whether you work in government, industry, or the non-profit world, you are in the people business. Building a network of influencers and decision-makers is the difference between progress and stagnation. This high-energy keynote will equip even the shyest among us with the tools to transition from awkward social encounters to game-changing relationships by:
- Learning the importance of relationships in successful networking
- Exploring the difference between transactional and transformational connections
- Discovering the importance of relationship mapping
- Learning how to walk into any situation and create meaningful connections that foster success
- Accelerating the path of “whom you know” to “who knows you”
