Speaking/Training

Hello, let’s talk training, speaking sessions for groups and events, and strategic planning facilitation for your next board meeting or retreat. You’re in the right place to learn more. I’ve organized this page by general category, however, many components of what I do overlap and often grow into customized options as we work together more frequently.

Speaking for Groups

 Signature Talk: ACT Like A Pro, Leave Amateur Behind and Own your Own Space!

Through both personal story of growing an selling a company that ‘was a great success that I was the wrong person to lead’ to examples from working in many consulting engagements, this upbeat and interactive session is for people with an entrepreneurial mindset –especially if they don’t own their own business. The concept is about transforming from a mindset of just getting by to discovering and owning the aspects of life where you can get serious and become an expert.

Great for motivating teams and employees and also for organizations looking to help define roles and improve employee engagement. This session can be a workshop with activities or a keynote and breakout combo.

Includes free e-book, 50 Ways to ACT Like a Pro download for all participants.

 Develop Your Talents – Creating a Culture of Coaching

What is executive coaching and why is it so popular today? This session will uncover what coaching can achieve – and what it won’t.  It will cover how coaching can be used in companies to both develop talent and aid top executives with long-term thinking. The session will also cover the differences between coaching and mentoring and ultimately tips and steps for creating a coaching program for your organization.

Great for workshops with organizational leaders, human resources professionals, and others seeking tools to improve the professional development offerings available to their employees, family business members, or contractors. This can also be added into coaching engagements or longer term consulting where we can work together to design and deploy a coaching program for your company.

Includes a free ACT Like a Pro Guide to Developing an In-House Coaching and Mentoring Program download for all participants.

Work with me on meeting facilitation, member relations research and strategic planning!

Custom Curriculum, Training and Delivery

I’ve created courses for universities, industry, and even courses that I deliver myself for a fee to niche audiences.  I love to write and solve problems to create lasting change. I’m both creative and timely. So, if you’re in a specialized industry or just want to build something new that you will own and use again and again, customized curriculum development is what you need. While customization of any existing program is open to all clients, this option begins with the discovery process and results in a training program that you own. This work may include slides, moderator guides, and train the trainer workshops. I am also available for the delivery of your new training. Live and video options are all  components you may consider. We can even work together to update your existing training materials and leverage the good content you already have that just needs a refresh.
