NO KNOWLEDGE IS EVER WASTED!Connecting your life’s experiences to write your next chapter:
You know more than you think you know! No knowledge or experience is ever wasted. Too often we hesitate to step out of our comfort zone to create our next chapter because we don't know how, we are afraid or we are unsure of how to connect the themes and patterns of our lives. What would any of us do if we didn't allow fear to stop us? Liz Brunner’s motivational message will guide you to connect the dots of your own life experiences to create your next chapter, personally or professionally, for intentional impact. Liz’s inspirational career journey from classroom to newsroom to boardroom to the stage as a keynote speaker will motivate you to discover what themes exist in your own journey, how to connect those dots, and how to break any patterns that may be holding you back from following your destiny and living your best life.
COMMUNICATE, CONNECT & ENGAGEHow to capture your audience’s attention with storytelling:
Every day, we are bombarded with “information overload!” What cuts through the noise and captures people’s attention is powerful storytelling. Each and every person, no matter what profession or industry, needs to exude confidence, presence, and communicate effectively. As an Emmy award-winning journalist, podcast host and expert storyteller, Liz Brunner will teach your audience her practical and proven communication tips and storytelling techniques, energizing them to connect and engage more authentically with their customers, clients and colleagues in a way that resonates and gets results immediately. By incorporating “Liz’s 4 C’s,” – Confidence, Content, Clarity and Conversational – for any presentation, pitch, or speech, and her innovative "Brunner Methodology for Practicing,” your audience will learn how to craft their story, the science behind why storytelling works, why it matters, and how to be seen and heard as they intend with confidence, presence and command.*
BE THE LEADER WITHINHow to cultivate leadership skills that meet the moment:
No one is born knowing how to be a leader. We learn how to be a leader.
