The challenges being faced by today's businesses oftentimes feel unsurmoutable. The economic climate amplifies peoples' stresses, increasing the urgency and need for results while at the same time diminishing attention spans even further. The reality is that this same situation is faced by every keynote speaker today with their audiences and the companies they keynote for.
Employees and audiences have a great need to walk away from every event with actionable steps to improve their performance, whether it be in leadership, communication or presentations.
Prior to every event, Connie starts with a call to understand the specific needs and challenges that either the company or audience is facing. Everyone walks away with an understanding of the goals set and the actionable steps their audiences will receive. Connie researches the client and audience to ensure they are getting a practical keynote with business expertise to overcome their specific challenges.
Even after the keynote, Connie makes herself available to have follow-up conference calls to provide additional insight to ensure every client gets value beyond speaking.

How do you balance the polarities of perfection and authenticity to lead at your peak level?
