Speaking

I’m from a family of magicians so I was born to woo audiences. With over 15 years of designing and delivering interactive workshops, I have a style that engages audiences and motivates them to act.

WTF Now!?

Here’s the new career reality:

  • 2 million new jobs will be created thanks to automation and artificial intelligence.
  • Two-thirds of millennials will have a new job by 2020.
  • 19% of companies still have traditional functional career models.

Traditional career advice is outdated. This workshop takes the audience through a new career paradigm, delivering upgraded career advice to meet the new world of work. What will the jobs of the near future look like? And how do we prepare for them? What about the robots? I’ll take your audience on a ride that covers upskilling, life long learning, stackable careers, and how to remain relevant in a rapidly changing workforce.

Available as an interactive workshop with a career redesign element or as a keynote. Ideal for: recent college alumni, early to mid-career professionals

Embrace Your Power Skills

Soft skills are the future. This interactive workshop teaches people how to improve their soft skills and build influence in the workplace. Covering public speaking, relationship building, negotiation, and self-promotion, this half-day workshop gives participants a chance to try them out during the workshop. Participants are sent off with a homework assignment and follow up. Also available as a two-part workshop. Ideal for: recent graduates, college alumni, and mid-career professionals.
