book sally to speak to your group
Bring in Sally for an all-hands keynote - or a full-day, half-day, or shorter training session to help your team present with more confidence and impact, and speak their story.
Sally is an award-winning speaker who has spoken to thousands about how they can step out front with more confidence, clarity, authenticity, and courage.
I’m an award-winning speaker and speaker coach, doing my craft for over 20 years. I am passionate about empowering big-hearted entrepreneurs, business owners, and leaders to find the courage and clarity to speak your story in a way that moves audiences (even if you don’t consider yourself a speaker!).
I got started helping people speak confidently when I worked as a speaker and coach for a national youth-serving organization. And let me tell you… speaking to teenagers will teach you so much about your abilities as a speaker, because when you stop delivering engaging content, they stop listening.
Over the years, I have helped hundreds of people write and deliver hundreds of talks (not to mention the hundreds I have delivered for my own audiences!) and I‘ve learned a little secret about what it takes to move your audience.
That little secret?
Your authentic voice and story.
When we show up fully, and speak our story, we move our audience. And when we move our audience, we can move the world.
Learn how to leverage a story based on the latest brain science (and why only stories can do it)
Identify the key shift we have to make as leaders in order to more powerfully persuade and influence.
Discover 3 powerful approaches to ensuring your story moves your audience - whoever that audience is.
STORYTELLING IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL TOOLS available to anyone who has the courage to yield it.. The problem is: we don't know how!
Instead, we fall into the trap of believing we don't have what it takes, and struggle to step out front and speak with full confidence & authenticity. In this interactive, delightful, and engaging keynote, Sally breaks down the myths of storytelling in business and leadership - and shares a simple approach to leverage story to persuade, engage, and connect.
Identify and discard the myths that keep people from using their voice and stepping into leadership
Discover the basics of persuasion theory - and how to use it in your everyday work
Create a "2-minute Talk" with a simple persuasion framework that leverages persuasion theory and helps you more easily move your "audience" (whoever that might be)!
IF YOU WANT TO LEAD -
THEN YOU NEED TO SPEAK. The problem is? Most people hate it with the force of a thousand suns.
It doesn't have to be that way. In this equal parts fun (yes, fun!) and insightful keynote, your audience will walk away with a simple approach to prepare for and create key messages - rooted in story and connection. This approach is based on persuasion theory and grounded in practical strategies that can apply to any scenario, including everyday connections, quick pitches, and high-stakes presentations.
KEY AUDIENCES: corporate, leadership, and anyone who wants to be more confident in their speaking
Discover and enhance your speaking superpower.
Learn a simple framework to show up and speak your story (on the "free stages" as well as the big ones)
Learn and practice strategies to take your place out front (even if you're convinced you don't belong there).
THE POWER POSITION OF SPEAKING IS WAITING FOR YOU. Will you listen to that little voice inside that says you are worthy of the moment?
Maybe you've had the dream inside you for awhile (even if you've hardly admitted to yourself). Or maybe it's only something you admire from afar. Either way - speaking is an essential component of your business-building, lead generation, and growing revenue. In this session, after providing practical strategies to make it real, Sally will convince you that not only do you belong on stage -but you might actually enjoy it!

She’s A Coach First. Sally loves to speak - but the drive to speak is really about handing the spotlight off to YOU - empowering each audience to step out front and own their own moments in front!
She’s Not a Special Unicorn. Although Sally truly loves to speak and has always enjoyed being up in front - she struggles just like the rest of us. She gets nervous, she doubts herself, she has worked hard to learn these skills! And she believes that the same is true for YOU: anyone can learn to be a moving and powerful speaker.
She's Insightful. Don’t let all the fun and brightness fool you; Sally brings a depth and insight to her speaking that makes an audience feel respected, seen, and moved.
She’s Not a One-Trick Pony. Sally can customize her content to your specific audience and needs - making sure that she brings her expertise into your event in a way that feels authentic, memorable - and exactly what they need.
She’s focused on CONNECTION - Not Perfection. The ultimate goal for any speaker should be to connect. And perfection gets in the way. So we can promise you right now, Sally won’t be perfect - but she will CONNECT!
Sally speaks both in-person and virtually, and is open to limited travel.
