In additional to bringing in Celebrity Speakers or Event Speakers who share their interesting stories, why not bring a speaker who gets participants up on their feet interacting, thinking, moving, laughing and best of all learning! After all, isn't that what keeps them coming back year after year?
If you are looking to add guest speaking to your event, it's best to speak to Lois directly. Prior to the presentation, she will schedule a session (with an in-depth questionnaire) to further identify the needs and goals of your group. She is committed to the participants in your company or organization getting optimal value and return on your investment. Here are some of her most popular workshop and keynote topics, and can be mixed and matched according to your needs.
Transition…It's Not a Pretty Sight: Reinvention In Really Challenging Times

Whether your company is being restructured, or your former jet-setting lifestyle is being reduced to a moped budget, or perhaps your empty nest is causing you to re-evaluate. Transitions can bring challenges but both opportunities.

Developing a greater sense of well-being and focus
Building a powerful team and strategic partnerships
Bloated at the Banquet of Life: Savvy Solutions for Moving from Stress to Success
This is one of Lois' favorite convention speaker topics. Have you ever gone to a buffet and by the time you heaped a fourth or fifth selection on the plate, it all starts to meld together? By the second trip, you're so stuffed that all you want to do is zone out and go to sleep? On a metaphoric level, that's what is happening to many people. So many people struggle with feeling over-stuffed but unfulfilled, not to mention stressed out.
In this highly creative and innovative presentation, which can also be used for a workshop, we will look at Five Power Principles that will serve as a catalyst taking you to from Stress to Success by shifting your perspective, as well as integrating creative ways to bring simplicity and scintillation into your life.

"We recently had Lois as a Speaker at our Advertising Women of New York Professional Development Events.
Lois was dynamic, personable and extremely effective. She made the evening fun, interesting and gave actionable items in getting a handle on goals and planning.
I would absolutely recommend and hire Lois again. She is an excellent partner - we received an overwhelming positive response to the event!"
