Popular topics that are most requested include:
My Speaking topics reflect my passion with rich content, out of the box ideas and strategies that can be implemented immediately for results.
- The importance of Personal Branding – there is nothing more important that you! There is no greater investment that your personal brand. Are you managing your own brand or is someone else managing it for you? Do you know what to do with the brand called You? Take back your personal brand with key strategies and tools, so that you can make a name for yourself!
- A Passion to Lead – where does leadership start? It starts with you, and you and you! We, all of us, each one of us, are leaders. The challenge is taking the responsibility to lead and living out that responsibility with passion. Has your fire burned out? Do you need to rekindle the blazes of your leadership? Find your passion again and Lead. Learn, Experience, Apply and Develop.
- Everyone Communicates, Few Listen – what happens when everyone communicates (verbally and non-verbally) but few listen? We get noise; we get conflict, we get confusion and more. Everyone has a communication style and when we become aware of our own style as well as the style of others, our teams become effective, results happen sooner and the company culture becomes stronger. Understand styles of communication to enhance your listening skills.
