Public Speaking

BADASS Public Speaking . . .

is about inspiring people to step outside of themselves and present with the Audience Forward Mindset whether they’re in front of 1 or 100,000 people. We help people realize who they are as a speaker (even if they don’t think they are) and how to develop an audience avatar that engages and inspires their audiences to feel, think and act which is the triad of desired speaking outcomes.

Never before in history, have we had so many WOMEN and LGBTQ leaders in our world. In the US alone our major news networks ABC, NBC and CBS have all installed female CEO’s to lead their organizations. In Colorado we elected the first openly gay Governor Jared Polis, and around the Country countless, Representatives, Senators, CEO’s and Presidential Candidates have put their reputations and personal lives on the line to lead our world into a new standard of behavior that breaks all gender and racial bias.

You have the opportunity to have your message heard by the masses, not just the few. You can build your business faster, create a community that changes the world, dominate your field as a leader and influencer, launch the business of your dreams or simply get that promotion and raise you’re deserving of . . . by being recognized as a Professional Public Speaker.
