Keynote Speaker

The world shifting from a reactive one to one of connected constant change has people more on edge than ever.  The world we 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, Brands, Marketers and Leaders at all levels are desperately trying to capture attention and resonate with clients, prospects and colleagues who 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 health.

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



Judi has presented her personal branding and fear keynotes for audiences of hospitality and sales professionals around the United States to help them with this essential skill for success in a world of constant change.

Far from boring, Judi’s approach to personal branding is relevant and immediately actionable. The result: Using Judi’s framework for managing fear and amplifying your personal brand, participants will leave empowered and ready to close more sales, increase productivity and embrace fear by leveraging the irresistible power of their authentic personal brand.
