Speeches and Leadership Development

I am passionate about helping others through inspiration, education, storytelling, and facilitating conversations on controversial topics. Breakthroughs happen when we create common ground for conversations about controversial topics.

Stories are human currency that have the power to bring us together. I often share personal stories in my speeches to connect and provide powerful imagery.

I have been a frequent speaker at HR and Diversity conferences, non-profit organizations, large corporate functions, small businesses, and women’s organizations. I have addressed large groups in the US, Canada, Mexico, and China. I have also been a commencement speaker at Fayetteville State University, a historic black college and university (HBCU).
