"When Julie speaks, people listen.
Her presence has an impact."
Are you looking for a speaker to ignite and energize your attendees, employees, audience, or community?
Whether it be a keynote, conference breakout, off-site retreat, or small, intimate gathering, I would love to share what I know. I've spoken to and facilitated a variety of organizations and communities from Fortune 50 companies to Non-profits serving 9/11 families and the Sandy Hook community to undergrads, continuing studies students, and university employees at Stanford University.
“I hired Julie to deliver a customized off-site training experience to help our marketing team overcome creative obstacles.
I'm pleased to say that she exceeded our expectations across the board. ...
She is a top notch professional who I would not hesitate to hire again." — Eric Watson, Microsoft

Out of the Shadows and into the light
TEDxIsfeld was a satellite event for the TED Women's gathering that year. I chose to share a very personal talk on my own journey to reconnect to my creativity and my feminine nature, while hoping what I had to say would encourage many others to do so as well.
Preparing and giving a TEDx talk is a wonderful experience. It felt both personal and professional in a way I've not experienced before. To me, TED is where the two can come together in a powerful way. I hope you enjoy watching and that my talk offers you not only insights into your own personal life journey but also ways in which I might be able to support a leadership or innovative initiative within your organization.
Liberating our Naturally Creative Power
Creativity and Authentic Leadership
While our authentic nature is powerful and confident, often when we dare to be empowered we meet parts of us that don’t feel powerful or confident. In fact, they frequently sabotage our success. When this happens, we tend to judge ourselves rather than empower ourselves by coming back to the powerful inner self. In this workshop, you’ll experience this inner self that is creative, always present, and a source of strength, confidence, and other qualities of an effective leader. You’ll learn practical ways to engage with this powerful flow.
I had the honor and privilege of speaking to hundreds of women and men at the annual EVE Programme in Evian. EVE is a program to empower women in business in French organizations. The event was held at the gorgeous Hôtel Royal - Evian Resort on Lake Geneva.

I also led Amiel through an exercise to experience his own Creative Source, which you can do yourself while listening to the conversation.
