Getting to Know You

What topics do you enjoy speaking on the most?

Oh, this is like choosing a favorite child, I can’t do it! I’m incredibly passionate about The Myth of Day of Coordination, for my wedding planners. I will be on my soapbox about getting rid of “day-of” until it’s not an issue anymore!

On a broader scale, I love presenting on The Power of Language in your Biz – I teach so many helpful, truly granular changes that can make a huge impact on your business and your bottom line. It’s so powerful and yet so simple.

What topic would you love to tackle next?

I’m always learning more about how to sell and serve our clients at the highest, most authentic levels, so I’d love to tackle more sales and pricing topics in the future.

How would you describe your speaking style?

Funny, candid, informal, yet inspirational. I love telling true stories from my own business journey to illuminate the topic and educate the audience. Giving actionable steps and concrete takeaways for every topic is something I’m very passionate about as well.

What has been your favorite speaking engagement to date?

Well, it’s going to be difficult to top Cocktails in Cartegena for The Wedding Planning Institue of Canada. A gorgeous international location, a lovely intimate group of wedding pros, and so much attention to education and hospitality. The whole week was a dream!

But, ever the extrovert, I also truly love presenting at Wedding MBA. The amount of energy I get from the audiences there is exciting, affirming and life-giving, truly. I also love getting to speak on a wide variety of topics and meeting so many new people each year.

When heading to a wedding industry conference, I never leave home without my….

Laptop! Honestly? I’m not a “carry-on only” type of gal. I overpack, all the time. But aside from my laptop, I also need my Logitech presenter (aka “the clicker”!). Just in case, I like to have my own. I’m superstitious like that.

Where would you love to speak next?

Anywhere international! I’m ready to fill up my passport!
