We brought Victoria in to speak to 75 top CEOs at an event hosted at MIT. She totally crushed it! Her keynote was theatrical, entertaining, and informative all at once. Our CEOs gained invaluable perspective and practical tools they could apply immediately to their businesses and their lives.

— Darius Mirshahzadeh, Curator, CEO Retreat, MIT

Victoria is the best coach I have worked with. She’s helped our top leaders be more confident, more powerful and more impactful on every level. Her influence goes far beyond inspiring, I can’t recommend her highly enough!

— Kate Hutchison, Chief Marketing Officer, Polycom

Victoria brought down the house! She was the opening speaker for our conference of nearly 500 advocacy, marketing, and communications professionals. It was a tough ask to reach all of those types of employees, but Victoria rose to the challenge. She was extremely dedicated, entertaining and inspiring. Participants were talking about her message for days following!

— Elise Cruce, Managing Director, American Farm Bureau Federation

Victoria’s keynote was the perfect start of a great two days...inspired and energized. The entire conference was all abuzz! For two days, her wonderfully wise, funny, and moving speech came back to us again and again. She really worked to understand the audience. Nobody does it better.

— Roxanne McCreery, President, Association for Briefing Program Managers

The talk and WOW of my Sales Meeting. My entire team got great working tools that they can take into their daily lives to make a positive and measurable difference. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for a great performance that we will never forget.

— Rob Freeman, Sales Director, Starbucks

In spite of all the time and money I’ve spent on ‘presenters’ I can recall only one – Victoria Labalme. She lit up our stage and her message lives on in the daily lives and actions of my team.

— Randy Drake, Senior Vice President, 24 Hour Fitness

I’m not quite sure I have enough words to describe how well received Victoria’s keynote and workshop presentation were with our participants. They were FLOORED. They gave her not one, but TWO standing ovations. The amount of people that came up to us and just raved about Victoria and her message was astonishing. Every single person in the room was connected and engaged the ENTIRE time and mentioned just how much they took away from every word Victoria spoke.

— Kate Schulze, Senior Program Manager, HP / Intel / Microsoft

Victoria had the entire team at the National Sales Meeting laughing, listening, applauding and most importantly learning. One never forgets a Grand Slam. Victoria rocked the house.

— Marty Scirratt, Senior Vice President Sales, Administaff

Unquestionably the most inspiring & moving speaker I’ve experienced in my 15 years as CEO. Every person she’s touched within our company has walked away in awe and is now able to realize more of their potential in life. Victoria has done 19 sessions, impacting our entire company throughout N. America.

— John Ohanesian, CEO, Bosley

Victoria delivered. Pure and simple. She is funny, poignant, dramatic, visual-in short, the total package. I highly recommend Victoria for a program of any size, for any industry, global or domestic.

A huge hit with our sales and management team...well exceeded our expectations. We have seen an immediate impact on sales activity and new business.
