I am an experienced public speaker. I am available for keynote, plenary and breakout speaking engagements as well as for conferences, retreats and workshops. Topics I address include:
“Good, Better, Best” an examination of the drive for perfection that fosters anxiety and robs us of satisfaction with our work.
“My Life Is Interfering With My Work” a consideration of the symptoms of workaholism, its toll on the individual, her co-workers and her family as well as the childhood roots that may underlie this pattern.
“Women Workers Aren’t Just Cheap Men” an exploration of the persistent gender wage gap and tools women can use to achieve pay parity.
“He Did What?” a review of workplace sexual harassment and the steps women can take in response.
“Workers Who Thrive” tips on discovering gratification in almost any job and a review of tools to increase satisfaction such as stress management, happiness practices and resilience. Click here to see an excerpt of my presentation on stress management.
“How Did She End Up on Top?” an examination of the characteristics of successful people.
“A Confidence Booster” even those who don’t believe in vaccinations will benefit from a review of tools to boost their self-assurance and poise.
“Why Zebras Don’t Have Ulcers” and humans do – a workshop on stress management featuring new techniques based on neuroscience as well as proven methods.
“It Didn’t Kill Me” a candid review of the challenges that helped me develop resilience and an exploration of how the audience can increase their inner strength.
My recent radio interview explores the coaching process and touches on several of these subjects with a special emphasis on resilience.
My speeches bring an integrated perspective on the subject matter by blending hard-earned wisdom with academic theory. My presentations can range from 15 to 90 minutes as needed. Longer sessions are available that include audience interaction and activities. I am also open to addressing other topics.
I have spoken at events sponsored by the National Association of Women Lawyers, UCLA Anderson School of Management, the California Real Property Lenders Association, the Practicing Law Institute, Infocast, the California State Bar Real Estate Section, the Santa Barbara Women’s Political Committee, the Fresno County Women Lawyers, The Girl’s Guide to Law School, the Santa Barbara Women Lawyers Foundation and The Law School Toolbox. I was also the lead speaker at a number of client seminars held by O’Melveny & Myers. I won a number of awards in law school for my speaking skills and served as the Chair of the Moot Court Board.
