Motivational Keynote Speaker (Minus the Clichés)

I have never found a stage or microphone that I couldn’t handle, so it thrills me when I’m invited to share my story with a new audience.

My experience as a public speaker extends to large (i.e. thousands) and small groups alike for marketing & sales education sessions, communication-focused keynotes, private workshops, conferences, podcasts, virtual events and broadcast news.

My speaking style centers around a single core principle:

You don’t have to be boring to be insightful, educational and valuable to the audience.

A Non-Boring and Impactful Motivational Keynote

My signature keynote focuses around overcoming adversity and applying the lessons learned into all areas of professional and personal life.

From Heart Attacks to High Mileage

Channing Muller is not what you’d expect as a poster child for heart disease, yet that’s precisely what she is.  At just 26 years old she experienced two heart attacks, one month apart.

A recreational runner, vegetarian for 10+ years, and still she found herself crawling through an emergency room door, not knowing what exactly had gone wrong with her heart.

Come to hear her inspiring story where she shares:

→ What exactly happened and the warning signs that could save your (or a loved one’s) life

→  The top life lessons learned on the path from that first emergency room visit to the 9th (and counting!) marathon finish line

→  The 4 mantras that have reduced her anxiety and fueled her forward momentum in all aspects of life

→  How to apply those hard-learned lesson to personal and professional life

…AND how you can too!

(Without the whole “have a heart attack and figure out how to run a marathon” portion.) 

“First off, your energy and enthusiasm was absolutely contagious, and your insights left everyone feeling inspired and ready to conquer the world!

Your willingness to be transparent, and share your stories and experiences was truly empowering. It’s not every day that we get to hear from such kick-ass women leaders, and I feel incredibly lucky to have had you on this panel.”

– Lauren Petrosky, ExpoPass
