Frequently Asked Questions

What type of audience is the best fit?

I work with a variety of audiences virtually. The best participants are open to discussion and story sharing via chat, polling, and a variety of discussion formats. While I focus on inclusive leadership, I work with organizations to engage allies in the conversation.

In the six years+ of speaking in my own business and 12+ years in Corporate America, I have found  I work best with HR, diversity + inclusion, and learning + development leaders looking for innovative solutions and education on inclusive leadership and equality in the workplace.

What are the technology asks?

I have done virtual speaking and training since the inception of my business in 2015.  I can use my own Zoom technology to host live virtual programs or work with client preferred platforms.  For large groups, I prefer a client moderator to monitor chat and facilitate live interactions.  I utilize a variety of technology to ensure virtual programs are highly engaging and interactive – breakout rooms, live polling, video and audio sharing, as well as chat exercises.

What is the speaking format?

I speak with leadership teams as small as 5-10 people and to audiences of 1,000+ leaders at virtual conferences. I meet clients where they are at. I am available to speak to your organization and recommend inviting those leaders most passionate and committed to equality. I utilize a robust workbook for participants to journal learnings throughout the virtual event and reflect and share the tools following the live event.  I ensure all participants have equal opportunities to participate and walk away with tangible ideas for their organizations.

What is the investment?

Clients typically invest $7,500 for live virtual keynotes or $10,000 for live in-person keynotes plus travel.  Investment ranges based on length of time and customization of programming. I offer discounted pricing on e-books and paperbacks for group sizes of 50 participants or larger. I occasionally do pro bono speaking engagements for those best aligned with my mission.

“Julie brought a great conversation to the our Human Resources Association SHRM conference. We discussed the many ways that men could become allies for women in the workplace. Through personal examples and a fresh way of thinking, Julie challenged our members to think about how we could be allies in our spheres of influence. Julie was prepared, easy to work with and generous with her time.”
