My message is powerful and inspiring.

Relish who you are. Recognize how courageous you already are. Serve the world by living fully and authentically.

I speak to groups of women and women leaders around the world, and mixed groups of men and women.

I am available for keynote addresses, presentations and workshops - for any size audience.

My favorite topics:

The Courage Code. It's Yours. Own It. Use It.

The traditional way of defining courage is only one way. Explore an entirely new way of viewing courage - and gain an entirely new, more positive way of seeing your life.

Every day, through our everyday choices, we change the world. And yet, until we recognize and honor how amazing and courageous we already are, we limit how we share our gifts and talents with the world. Changing the code (our very definition of courage) allows us to unleash our creativity and energy. Gain confidence and courage for expressing yourself fully...and changing the world.

Creating an Authentic Life

It takes courage to be who we are and express what we care about. Yet, greater authenticity - listening to our inner, wise Self - brings greater fulfillment and happiness. Each day and each moment presents us with opportunities to be authentic...or not. Gain insights and tools for creating more joy by finding and following your inner voice and spirit.

Secrets of Courageous Women

What makes a woman be willing to 'walk through fire' in their personal and/or professional lives? To make a tough choice, and continue moving forward even while experiencing great fear? Discover the secrets of courageous women around the globe.

The Feminine Face of Courage

The world desperately needs the feminine face of courage - the ability to create greater understanding, resolve issues, blend reflection with action, collaborate, and tap into a deeper wisdom. Examine what the feminine face of courage looks like and how it benefits everyone - and the planet. Women and men will be inspired to value and utilize the feminine face of courage in life and leadership.

Courageous Conversations...Courageous Conversations

The challenge for all of us, as leaders in our famiies or work, is how to create a safe, respectful, resolved environment and bring out the best in everyone - management, staff, customers, vendors, etc. It takes courage...and it takes courageous conversations. Gain clarity about what courageous conversations look and sound like - and how essential they are for any relationship, group and organizationLearn how to build greater trust by directly approaching conflict. Shift from trying to be right to trying to understand. Learn the mindset for courageously facing difficult situations and gain skills for successfully resolving conflict.. Feel more confident and courageous for creating environments where all thrive.


My presentations address your audience's unique needs...not a canned program,

My many years of experience as a speaker, workshop leader and facilitator give me the rare ability to craft a message that speaks directly to your group. I have the flexibility and skill to explore, listen to, and identify your true needs - and custom design a presentation to meet your needs.
