The Art of Being Unexpected: How to Manage Fear, Take Action, and Stay Relevant
Best Audience: Women in Business, Sales Professionals, Hospitality Professionals, Entrepreneurs, Emerging Leaders

Just imagine how you would feel if …

  • You had more patience at work and at home
  • You could earn more
  • You felt more productive and less overwhelmed
  • You had the guts to dance with your fear
  • You felt confident to ask for what you want

    The world is accelerating at such a rapid pace has people more on edge than ever. The world you live and work in has never been more crowded or noisy.

    And now, more than ever, you have to find a way to rise above that noise. To stand out. To stay relevant. And to be the one we can’t live without.

    The real challenge in today’s society is simply getting the attention of the people that can buy from you, hire you, promote you and/or recommend you. Sales Teams, Marketers and Leaders at all levels are desperately trying to capture attention and resonate with clients, prospects and colleagues who all expect more.

    Is there a secret weapon? Yes. Your authentic brand. Your vulnerability. Your vibe.

    The problem? “Personal Branding” has been made to seem trendy and fluffy. Yet, there could not be one single more important investment you could make in life … the investment in you! The investment in your mind, energy, and wellness.

    Every day we are missing critical opportunities to connect in powerful and profitable ways because we lack the confidence to do so.

    This session will show you another way.

    Participants will learn how to use Judi’s Personal Branding Portfolio and will take-a-way the following:
  • How to promote yourself internally and externally
  • What a personal brand is and what it is not
  • How to embrace change and land better professional opportunities
  • Tools to provide more focus and productivity
  • How to increase your “luck” factor
  • Strategies that will help you expand the reach of your network
  • A personalized personal branding statement you can use immediately

  • How to use improv theatre fundamentals in real life situations
  • Attention CMP’s: This session is CEU Certified and earns 1.25 CEU’s.

    Busy By Design: 7 Habits That Fear Uses To Kill Your Productivity
    Best Audience: Sales Teams, Entrepreneurs, Associations, Women in Leadership

    Being busy is making us sick. It’s robbing us of new opportunities to thrive. It’s stealing our joy. This session will teach you how to get rid of the energy sucking tasks draining your life so you can start living with intention and focus. You’ll learn the secret weapon to winning at work and at life: Getting “busy by design”!

    I believe decluttering and focus are actual super powers. And now more than ever we are craving this sort of disconnection because we have never been more connected than ever. And by the way … We are also living in a historic pace of acceleration. Which means we are constantly out of breath, trying to keep up, catch up and the second we do … it all changes.

    So many times we are last on our own list. Because of this, you end up feeling irritable and frustrated. You never seem to catch up. You are always busy but never feel productive. You are constantly overwhelmed and have lost your joy in the journey. There is a better way! It is possible to go from being “crazy busy” to being “busy by design”. And it’s not only possible, it can save your life! By pursuing less you can actually achieve more! This session will show you how.

    Participants will take-a-way the following:
  • The 7 Deadly Habits of Productivity
  • How to effectively manage your time
  • Why multi-tasking doesn’t work

  • Productivity tools and tips you can start using right now to declutter your personal and professional life
  • Why access is your #1 deadly sin
