If you were handed a mic and 5 minutes to share your message, could you do it? Would you be able to distill your story– the things that have made you, YOU, into those few precious moments?
That was the exact situation today’s guest was in when she was presented with the opportunity to compete at Speaker Slam. This was a shock even to her, as she has JUST made the decision to finally act on her long time goal of becoming a speaker!

We dive into the importance of practicing and getting feedback from peers, how investing in yourself can push you forward to your goals, and most importantly how you can distill your story into one powerful core message that can move your audience.

A year ago I connected with a presentation designer on Instagram. She had a successful design agency offering done-for-you webinars, keynotes and courses. We were both expanding our referral network and quickly realized that…
We lived just FIFTEEN MINUTES apart and shared the same “get out of the house and work in a cafe” spot. So obvi, we met up IRL!
We talked “Talk” shop and instantly connected over our shared path from corporate healthcare.
We both planned big ass conferences and seminars.
We both transitioned to creating stage content for those events.
Emily doubled down as a ninja designing presentations that got results.
And I stepped into the spotlight and became magnetic with a mic (you know how that’s been going )
At the risk of sounding super dramatic…
