inspire your audience

increase your influence and make the world better

I am on a mission to create a world where women and girls know their power.

If we stand in our strength when it matters most, our possibilities are unlimited.

Since people often ask… Though I specialize in working with women, I make exceptions for exceptional men (she said with a wink & smile).

Are any of these true for you?

  • Do you want your work to make a difference in the world, but somehow you feel you’re not doing enough?
  • Do you want to increase your influence, but need more confidence and clarity?
  • Do you have an opportunity to present at an important conference or meeting, but feel under-prepared and nervous because of the high-stakes.
  • Perhaps you’re pitching to a potential client or major funder you really want to work with.
  • Or your last speaking engagement didn’t go as well as you would have liked.
  • Or do you get stage fright when you have to present to people of power and authority — and thus forget your own?
