Little Voice

Dr. Laura Mach

In our society today, we have lost the art of hearing our intuition, which can lead to bad habits and poor choices.

Using her own life experiences and her specialized training as a life coach, Dr. Laura Mach instructs listeners how to overcome this problem. 


Two Sides of the Same Coin 

Meghna Dassani

Leadership and culture is not just about what you do but what you can encourage, inspire and empower your team to do.
Regardless of where you are in your career and practice, there is a better future waiting to be created and you can do it with your leadership and culture.

It's Not Me, It's You

Lynda Sherman

Imagine a world where you are an inspiration to yourself, where you appreciate the importance of your actions, and a world where you overcome barriers. Explore the discomfort in living life authentically and embracing who you are.

Words Make Worlds

Holly Anne Mitchell

“I AM” are the words of creation. When you were a child, perhaps someone told you who they believed you were: “You are sweet,” “You are/n’t athletic,” “You are/n’t talented,” “You are short/awkward,” “You are/n’t very good at ____,” “You are/n’t a natural ____,” “You always, you never, you can’t, you shouldn’t…”

Did you believe them? Do you still want to? In just 20 minutes, learn how to use the habit of creation words and questions to heal limiting beliefs, overcome anxiety, empower others with transformative confidence, and bring your vision into congruent feeling and action to change the world.

Leading with Strengths

Valerie Menzel and Leanne Burnett

How to use Strengths psychology to manage others and be an exceptional leader


The Path to Profit

Barb Stackhouse

Tap into your natural human behaviors around money to maximize the profitability of your speaking and consulting business. 

When Life Gives You Sour Grapes... Stomp Them. 

Katrina Sanders

As lady bosses, we picture a life of pristine dresses, pricey high heels and robust bubbles slowly emerging from the bottom of the glass; however, sometimes the universe has something else in store for us. 

What's In Your Toolbox? 

Jasmin Haley
A challenging journey for all bold & empowered women is navigating the noise of self-doubt, comparison, and a true sense of belonging. True peace, confidence, and joy stem from a sense of being. Of already knowing that you have everything it already takes to reach your personal & professional goals. So, what's in your toolbox? This closing keynote will help you discover what you already have and will continue to have as you reach your heights of excellence.
