Speaking Topics
  • MINDSET: THE REAL GO/NO GO WHEN DEVELOPING & EXECUTING YOUR GROWTH STRATEGY™

    Mindset. The foundational key to success in both business and life. Many have heard the terms fixed vs. growth mindset, and how that can impact organizations. However, there are multiple types and layers of mindsets that many leaders and executives have that can make the difference between success and failure, when it comes to both developing and executing the right growth strategies for your organizations.

    Using her dynamic and unique perspective through the use of memorable storytelling and humor, while also drawing on examples from past clients and companies in her book, 10-Step Guide to Creating Your Own Growth Strategy For Your Company: The Secret To Unlocking The Mystery Of Achieving And Sustaining Profitable Growth, Michelle will motivate, engage, and challenge audiences to ‘think and act differently’, while also providing practical and actionable insights that can be implemented right away.

  • WANT TO REMOVE ROADBLOCKS TO STRATEGY? – CHANGE YOUR MINDSET™

    Roadblocks can be both internal and external. Many well thought out growth strategies and plans go nowhere, due to these roadblocks (which can be both seen and unseen). Growth strategy development, planning, and execution has oftentimes been taught and created from a primarily analytical point of view.

    During this keynote, Michelle will share real world and real life examples from some of her past clients and companies mentioned in her book, 10-Step Guide to Creating Your Own Growth Strategy For Your Company: The Secret To Unlocking The Mystery Of Achieving And Sustaining Profitable Growth, and have audiences blown away and mesmerized by how some of the biggest roadblocks were eliminated using the simplest and smallest shifts in both mindset and action that resulted in achieving growth goals, solving growth problems, and turning around numerous organizations – and how they can do the same.

  • DON’T BLAME THE PERSON, FIX THE PROCESS!™

    “Fire him.” “Move her.” “We have to get the right people in the right seats.” While sometimes doing these things will give you the results you want and need to move your organization forward, it’s not always the case.

    Using unique and relatable examples, this keynote program will engage, enable, and empower audiences to know what questions to ask and learn the difference between whether or not the REAL growth problem can be solved or growth opportunities can be achieved by changing the people, or if the underlying process (or root cause) is what truly needs to be fixed.

  • MOVING FROM BOOTSTRAPPING TO GROWTH STAGE: HOW TO GO FROM ‘GUN SLINGING EVERYTHING’ TO HAVING A REAL FOUNDATIONAL GROWTH STRATEGY TO SCALE™

    The same way we grow from being a child, adolescent, and then an adult, we also grow as a business. When you are starting out or at a certain level, getting whatever sales you can through referrals, networking, relationships, or happenstance (“bootstrapping”) works. However, when you decide it is time to go the next level, and want to grow ‘like the big boys do’, you have to do things differently.

    During this keynote, Michelle will share real world and real life examples from some of her past clients and companies mentioned in her book, 10-Step Guide to Creating Your Own Growth Strategy For Your Company: The Secret To Unlocking The Mystery Of Achieving And Sustaining Profitable Growth, to have audiences inspired and take action based on practical tools and the mental and emotional shifts needed to go to the next level and scale to limitless new heights and beyond!

  • OBSTACLES ARE WHAT YOU SEE WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE GOAL

    This motivational and inspirational keynote takes audience members throughout my personal journey of being on my own since the age of 16, my career journey and business accomplishments thus far, mistakes made, and lessons learned. Stories of how to overcome obstacles, persevere, and achieve success both personally and professionally will be shared and tailored to audience demographics and makeup.
