Heather was referred to me from an industry contact who I trust. The Colorado Bankers Association was looking for a keynote speaker at our Annual Women’s Leadership conference. She did not disappoint. Heather energized and inspired our attendees to think differently about their roles as leaders inside and outside of their organizations. Heather really connected with the audience, I recommend her for any event. We will have her back at a future conference!

Heather’s insight, energy, and passion add real value to any employee engagement and professional development initiatives! She strikes the perfect balance between offering a human touch and expertise; as well as meeting clients where they are while challenging them to move forward. It’s great to be in partnership with her!
Danielle Vaughan, FirstBank
Heather's talk at the Denver Improving Capital Projects Symposium gave us great insight into re-framing our mindsets for leadership. She reminded us that leaders don't have to be perfect. In fact, we have the power to choose how we will react to adversity and that we don't have to let challenges hinder us. Instead, we can take control over the "head trash" as one attendee put it and develop a positive mindset to make us stronger. I really appreciate that Heather was approachable and willing to work with us to develop the content for her keynote. It's great to have a local thought leader we could collaborate with for our event!

Your session was incredible. Thank you for saying yes to come and teach, inspire, engage, educate, motivate and enable us to reflect.
Chief Marketing Officer
Heather is an incredible speaker! I witnessed an amazing speech earlier this week focused on resiliency. It is challenging to virtually engage an audience and she was phenomenal. Heather's speech was heartfelt, informative, inspirational, and exactly what our organization needed. I would highly recommend Heather as a speaker. If she can do this well virtually, I can't imagine what it must be like in person!
She’s truly one of the leading lights in the field of employee loyalty and our audience of HU professions rated her talk extremely highly.

Heather was recently a Disruptor (aka Speaker) at DisruptHR Colorado Springs 2.0! Heather expertly condensed "Emotion Potion: The Secret Formula for Creating Amazing Employee Loyalty" into a 5 minute learning experience for the sold-out crowd! DisruptHRCOS has received excellent feedback and is grateful for Heather's engaging presentation!
Damian Guerin, HR Professional Services at Employers Council
We were lucky enough to have Heather as one of our presenters at DisruptHR Colorado Springs. She exceeded all expectations in collaboration and her skills in engaging the audience. Her presentation was informative, innovative, and the audience really responded to it. I would highly recommend Heather!
Chelsea Fryman, SHRM-SCP, President Colorado Springs SHRM Chapter
Heather's talk gives excellent insight about employee experience and how great leaders can instill such positive emotions in those they influence. With the growing conversation of culture and how that affects retention, Heather not only discusses the negative effects of bad culture and employee experience but also helps equip you with methods and strategies to make an impact as a leader and drive a better workplace culture! This session was one of my favorites at the Tennessee SHRM Conference this year in Chattanooga! I also subscribe to her podcast too!
Hal Miller, Human Resources & Administration Manager, Chattanooga Tourism Co.
I attended a recent HR conference where Heather was the closing keynote speaker. A coveted but hard spot to fill, Heather had the audience hooked on her well thought-out stories demonstrating that employee experience IS about emotions. Not only did Heather’s captivating speech have the audience engaged and involved, it also drove home the message that “We as leaders choose which emotions we invoke in those that we lead”. And her impact did not stop with her speech. Heather continued to graciously engage with curious attendees at the end of the conference. Yes, Heather…I Choose! I highly recommend Heather as a speaker. She will not disappoint!

Heather is a first class speaker who is not only energetic and engaging but backs it all with research and a path to being a truly caring leader. We hired Heather to speak at our annual event and we were not disappointed. Heather and her team were not only easy to work with but quick to answer all of my questions and send over the information that I needed to promote our event. Heather not only has a wonderful bubbly personality but is authentic in her interactions. I would highly recommend Heather to speak at your next event or conference, thank you Heather!

I just had the pleasure of listening to Heather’s talk about Resilience Through Change. While the message of the talk was strong and encouraging, it was Heather’s charisma and presentation that really made the topic resonate with me. Heather’s humor and personal experiences kept the presentation fresh and exciting. In addition, while facing the limitations of a virtual platform, Heather was able to engage the viewers and allow for audience participation; helping us (the audience) connect with each other through our responses and experiences. At the end of the discussion, I felt optimistic and enthusiastic to implement and share what she had taught me.

Heather R. Younger ranks as one of the very best speakers and thought leaders ever encountered on DEI initiatives. At Xerox’s Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging ‘All of Us Together’ event, she delivered a dynamic and engaging presentation on the topic of intersectionality. Heather shared the importance of whole self-leadership and how to use intersectionality to make connection points that help strengthen our culture.

She was a hit! I really appreciate the positive energy and enthusiasm Heather brought to the session, as well as her authenticity. It was wonderful to work with her. I hope we can work together again in the future.
Kimberly Markiewicz, VP of DEI, DuPont
Thank you for participating in the Engineer Employee Engagement for All Managers at our DDOT. Your profound message on The Art of Caring Leadership will continue to inspire our leaders as we continue the spirit of engaging our teams across the agency. Caring for those we lead will be key to our reentering workforce and for those who have been on the front lines without having the option to fully retreat to the “stay at home” order. Managers who provide guidance for those brave men and women will need to provide a spirit of leadership with care and compassion.

Heather was wonderfully prepared, her time management was on point. I loved the background because it made it seem more “official”. No technical difficulties on webinar hosting (unheard of these days!), and the messaging was on-point while not being overly touchy-feely.
Kristy LeGrande, Innovest Portfolio Solutions
I had the pleasure of listening to Heather Younger deliver a talk via Zoom on how to cultivate more resilience. What an excellent speaker Heather Younger is. She keeps your attention with her vibrant personality and charming sense of humor. Heather very openly shares her experiences with adversity and makes her audience feel safe. During the talk Heather asked for participation and the comments were very open and honest. I left that session with skills I can put to use right away. I also am signing up for Heather's mini-course and buying her book about employee loyalty.
Christine Hudek, Innovest Portfolio Solutions
Heather just gave a talk to our clients and friends on resilience. It was a great message with actionable steps that everyone should take - especially in these times! She was engaging and funny but serious as she understands how we can't take being resilient for granted. Her personal story in overcoming obstacles was inspiring! No one dropped off the presentation; she had a firm grip on the audience! Thank you, Heather, for making today a very productive one for everyone!
Rich Todd, Innovest Portfolio Solutions
Positive, Clear and Powerful. Heather's message was brought to our business association members at just the right time. While many of our local businesses struggle to find ways to recover from the COVID-19 shutdown, Heather's positive message gave us all a push to keep going while "Transforming Adversity into Opportunity" to grow. Thank you, Heather.
Maki DeLaet, President, Wheat Ridge Business Association

Heather gave an inspiring presentation on building resilience. Her enthusiasm and down-to-earth approach really connected with our staff. She gave good, practical suggestions on how to adjust your mindset and stay strong even when difficult times occur. Though virtual, Heather's presentation was very interactive. She was able to involve staff throughout the presentation and speak directly about what was troubling them. Her presentation was incredibly well-received and appreciated by our staff. They related to her presentation and ended feeling empowered. I highly recommend her.
