You ‘lit up’ the Chicago SHRM Elevate conference.
Being in a virtual environment didn’t stop the energy from coming through. When you gain trust and respect from your audience, you can influence in a virtual environment. Pause, say less and speak with your eyes! You show us how. Thanks for an actionable presentation.

Everything was wonderful! Stacey understood the audience and was very professional. The attendees were beyond pleased to have her as the opening keynote!
Caroline Fabacher, NAHB
You made a difference with our audience today and will continue to influence our teams. I can’t overemphasize that what you do matters to leaders working to effectively communicate on a consistent basis.
FOUR great presentations. Super engaging. Forcing the uncomfortable. Really important. Crammed into 2 hours. Over zoom, no less. Quite a mystical feat. Well done Stacey.
Perhaps my single biggest critic is a CFO of a $120m company. He is completely where fun goes to die. Today, he said “that’s the best presentation I’ve ever seen. I’m buying her book.
I absolutely LOVE how you got them to film themselves and then go through the agony of watching themselves. And you were complimented on your ability to explain and SHOW good and bad modeling. Seems so simple…so obvious. Clearly, it’s not. They needed YOU!
Master Chair, Vistage
You influenced me to polish my performance on your spot on, succinct, one hour keynote. Your delivery style is easy to understand as you provide tips for actionable behavior shifts that can be reinforced by colleagues. You taught me how to ask for and receive meaningful feedback quickly. Within the first 10 minutes of your presentation, I had news I could us in my next meeting. Bravo!

Thank you again for presenting at our PCMA event. The feedback I received after the event was overwhelmingly positive and I think many attendees took away some great advice. I personally shared my takeaways with our CEO when I got back to the office. You were one of the strongest speakers we have had in the past few years.
Strategic Account Man
You were the first person I thought of for the program and everything about the preparation and delivery of your segment was exactly the sort of professionalism I’ve come to expect from you. Without a doubt, your presentation is the one I’ve already gotten the most positive feedback about. Participants were excited for all the actionable steps you gave them. You’ve also mastered conversing and being yourself while online in a way I am jealous of. Thank you again for sharing some of your wealth of knowledge.

Stacey presented for the MDRT (an association by and for financial advisors all around the world). She presented for 5,000 members in-person plus online attendees. She was rated as outstanding and ranked in our top 5 among 15 professional speakers. Stacey was one of the most organized, responsible, with great energy speakers we've worked with. She made our task so easy and her topic on leadership and how to influence on a daily basis was full of lots of great information. We were really sad to not be able to give her more time on stage!
Your presentation was one of the best I’ve been to on the topic as well. I took so much from your presentation and plan to continue practicing and improving going forward (I am looking at my post-it reminders for this week as we speak)!
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!

Stacey spoke at GAMA International Lamp taking about communicating with influence, self-awareness and personal branding. She spoke with passion and gave immediate actions that can be implemented right now. She was the best speaker and most influential person at the entire conference. Would recommend her to any organization that deals with employee and leadership development. Also, any organization and association that deals in communication will find her a valuable resource.

You were the perfect speaker to kick off this inaugural event! Your message was right on point and created lots of buzz throughout the week. Thank you for taking the time to listen to our needs and making sure you understood our expectations.

The feedback has been wonderful, unsolicited, my inbox has been buzzing!! I am excited to continue this message with our group and you made it so easy to do that. Your material I downloaded will help with that as well. The message was perfect and timely
Senior Vice President/General Manager, Crump Life Insurance Services
Your presentation gave me a way to structure my communication interactions in a repeatable, effective way. It definitely called out key “blocks” to build upon and after getting comfortable with one to make sure I continue to focus on new “blocks.” Recording yourself, working on pausing and voice inflection has made an immediate impact on my calls so far.
Regional Wholesaler, Nationwide
We got wonderful feedback from the teams and they were very impressed with your guidance. We are excited to continue the conversation through practical tips you shared!
Global Partner Sales Lead, Microsoft
Your session was game changing since it influences the behavior of the entire sales organization on every call and interaction. Thank you for providing the rising tide. Now………time for me to practice!
All field sales professionals are going to be recording and providing feedback each day for the next week. I’ve been to many sales meetings, and this was the first a keynote speaker has influenced the field to take action the next week. Thank you for effectively making a difference.
You are incredibly generous with your expertise and thoughtful in your impact. You made a difference with our audience today and will continue to influence our members who view the video later. I can’t overemphasize that what you do matters to leaders working to effectively communicate on a consistent basis. Thank you for all you do, my friend.

Even though it was virtual, you made me feel so connected to you in a more personal way than many other classes I have attended. It was like you were right in the room with me. I greatly appreciate the time you took to share your experience and insights into how we should keep on learning and understanding the greatness of our industry and the challenges we all are facing at this time, communicating with influence is a must! Your presentation was both informative and practical and has inspired me to grow both, professionally and personally, I accepted the challenge and already have applied it to my day. I call it "my daily dose of Stacey.
