Ever wish you could push a nitro button for your performance? You have arrived at your destination.

Some people always seem to be in high gear while others stagnate. This invigorating keynote address will replenish the pep in your step. Being motivated can become a daily struggle. The motivation battle is compounded when you have to navigate around commuting stress, multiple priorities with varying deadlines, and a fast-paced lifestyle – all of which can crash your engine. Our jobs and priorities are constantly changing adding even more stress and confusion to our lives. Let me be your travel guide through a presentation aimed to transform your view of work and life. I teach the audience strategies to arrive at goals by taking the positive route.

This keynote address provides the tools and guidelines to manage stressful business situations. Improving your stress management skills and executing business strategies with integrity and competence is the beginning of developing and maintaining strong client relationships.

Program Goal:

Burnout is a major personal and professional risk associated with high-stress jobs. This keynote builds each participant’s skill in balancing the goals and stresses of work and life.This program ensures each audience member receives a hearty laugh, leaves with a positive attitude, and experiences navigating daily life from the optimistic lane. I make positivity the focus and provide the audience with strategies to combat stress by staying focused and putting creative work first and reactive work second. Energy goes where attention flows, learning to focus your attention on important tasks and positivity throughout your day can improve your business and quality of life forever.
