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 live 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 and $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.
