I am multi-passionate about kids and the adults in their lives. My greatest desire is to support these kids and adults and help them become the best versions of themselves. My zest for the process of growing and developing little people into amazing adults inspires me to share my passion with others.
I enjoy speaking to any size group from keynote addresses of hundreds, to “lunch and learns” for smaller groups. My speaking style is vibrant, energetic and personable. I believe in the power of story and the learnings we can ascertain from other’s experiences. (Her humor makes her a crowd favorite). I customize my presentations to meet the audience’s interests and leave them inspired to implement their new knowledge.
Examples of groups I have spoken to include:
- Corporate groups/Lunch & Learn
- Keynotes for conferences
- Parent Groups
- Non-Profit organizations
My Current Speaking Topics:
How to Avoid Power Struggles
Power struggles – we have all been there. Whether our child is 2 year old or 21 years old we have all experienced the frustration of power struggles and the disbelief as our child engages in saboteur behavior just to gain control. Power struggles are the bedrock of conflict with our children. They leave us exhausted and defeated. Lets face it our children are skilled at wearing us down until they have the control.
Imagine how peaceful parenting would be if we could avoid these power struggles. How much extra time we would have to connect with our child instead of fighting with them. In this talk I do just that. I give practical techniques to prevent power struggles before they happen and solid solutions for when they do occur.
You will leave this talk with a parenting tool box full of strategies for avoiding power struggles and a clear understanding on the causes of power struggles.
Finding your Child’s Love Language
You tell your child every day that you love them, but does it ever seem like that is not enough? It may not be. Your children have a certain love language and if it is not getting filled it won’t matter how many times you tell them, “I love you”. They will still act out.
In this talk, based on the work by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell, I will guide you to discovering your child’s primary love language and how best to meet it. This will allow you to build a foundation of unconditional love for your child. A child needs to know they are loved in order to grow into a giving, loving and responsible adult.
Creating Family Culture
Ground breaking work tends to be focused on creating positive corporate culture and school culture. But what about family culture? I will take you through techniques and strategies to first clarify the family culture that you want and then how to achieve it.
Why should the current, innovate culture creation strategies stay within the private and public sector? I’ll show you how to use these techniques to develop your family culture in an innovative and experiential way.
With a strong, conscious family culture you will experience less behavior issues, less stress and more family fun. You will reach your families’ full potential.
Strategies to Empower your Child
The term helicopter parenting or over parenting is becoming more popular. It is easy to do. We care so deeply for our children and want the best for them that we end up rescuing them. It comes from a place of love but yet it can have devastating effects on our children and our relationship with them. They become entitled and unable to solve their own problems. It can affect their self-concept and self worth. Although meaning only the best for them we have stolen their opportunity to become competent, grateful and productive people. We have stolen the opportunity for them to learn from their mistakes.
In this talk I’ll teach you how to leave the world of over-parenting and enter the world of consultant parenting. I like to use humor and stories to teach ways to empower your child so they become capable young people. You will learn techniques to support your children in learning to solve their own problems and develop the critical thinking skills to be confident in any situation, especially peer pressure.
Raising Financially Literate Children
It is exhausting to be pounded over the head with, “I want this! Buy me this!” every time you walk into a store with your child. Or to have your child leave their jacket and clothes all over town never to be seen again. These are symptoms of children who are financially illiterate.
One of the greatest skills we can give our children is an understanding of personal finances. I will share with you the best practices for raising financially literate children who will grow into adults that understand the value of money. You will see a marked difference in your child’s responsibility level, gratitude and demands after implementing the techniques I teach in this talk.
I am happy to customize any presentation and enjoy tailoring my knowledge and experience to fit the needs of you and your group.
