Your presentation was really brilliant. I saw the girls who are outwardly expressive gain more momentum, direction and passion as the session progressed, and the inwardly expressive girls wrote copious amounts of notes and then couldn’t wait to share them with me. I do not exaggerate when I say that I have never seen that level of reaction and engagement in response to any other speaker. Bravo!

Speaking & Workshop Facilitation

Challenge Driven Innovation

There are many problems to solve and no shortage of ideas for solving them.  How do you know if your idea is the right one?  This session will help you identify your most important challenge, build on your idea to find the best version and consider various points of feasibility as you plan to implement.

Pitch Like You Mean It

Every organization and business works hard to craft the perfect mission statement.  But how good is your reason for existing if you can’t explain what you do and why it’s important?  Participants will leave this session able to articulate WHY they do what they do, HOW they do it, and WHAT they want their community and potential clients to know. 

What is Networking REALLY?

What does it mean to engage your community?  We all “network” everywhere we go, but we’re not always very efficient.  Your team will leave this session with a personal networking plan that will guide them in telling their story, prioritizing their needs, and targeting the right resources to move  them forward.

What else?  Let's learn about business planning, networking for new ventures, engaging community, social enterprise innovation, personal pitching, networking for a new career, and what to do with that entrepreneurial spirit!

It is a program coordinator’s dream to have a presenter who always gives 100%.
