My public speaking days go back to ... high school! I was scared to death, but still spoke in front of over 800 students who were gathered to elect their school-wide representatives. I lost, but the centerpiece of my proposal - a mini film festival for all the students - was so popular the elected representatives made it happen anyway 😀
I made an award winning short documentary film about student loans and appeared (virtually) at screening events to answer questions from students all over the country. I then hosted an online series of video conversations for architects, and since 2016 I have been speaking publicly and moderating panel discussion in Los Angeles. On my panels, I hosted executives and startup founders from Hulu, Upfront Ventures, NBC Universal, Los Angeles Clean Tech Incubator, Fandango, Two Bit Circus and more.
I have spoken or taught interactive workshops at Ladies Get Paid, SheCatalysts and UCLA Extension. I regularly speak and teach workshops with my own company, Repurpose Your Purpose. You can find all upcoming Repurpose Your Purpose events here.
Topics I love to Talk About:
- Changing Careers - the how, when and why of creating a fulfilling career, especially if you are not sure what to do next
- Experiencing community and interconnection in our work - including through networking and marketing
- Purpose - how to align our work with our values and purpose
All my workshops and presentations are customized to be most effective for each event and audience. If you are looking for a career, connection, and purpose expert, get in touch and let's talk details!
Psst: Thousands of people read my blog and my work is regularly published on Glassdoor Blog and other publications.
