Fact: Confident Teams Are More Productive

Not only that, they also make better decisions and become better leaders for your organization.

Self-doubt holds people back from excelling in life and work. On the other hand, overconfidence leads to poor decision making. True confidence, built from the inside out, is what your people *actually* need to perform at a high level, succeed in life, and impact the world.

but most speakers don’t talk about the:

Methods that create “true” confidence
Frameworks to teach the skill of confidence
Strategies to deal with self-doubt

In other words, most presentations are all fluff with no effective strategies.

But Simone is not your typical speaker. In fact, the only place she likes fluff is on her peanut butter sandwiches. By sharing her real and raw stories, her own personal battle with self-doubt and her mountain-climbing journey to unstoppable confidence, Simone will leave your audience feeling transformed, energized and empowered to conquer their own “mountains”.

Small Acts, Big Impact: The Ripple Effect of Philanthropy

Format: Customizable Keynote, Virtual Presentation, 1⁄2 Day Workshop

People often think they’re too insignificant or too unimportant to make a difference in the world. So, they don’t give, don’t participate, and don’t engage because they don’t believe their small contribution could make an impact. But this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Including even the smallest acts of kindness, our commitment to philanthropy and giving can make a real difference in the lives of children, in the lives of adults, and in the lives of families around the world. We can give hope to the hopeless; serve as a voice to the voiceless; and provide a family and community to those who were once alone.
