Speaking Engagements

Laylee would be honored to speak at your next conference! Read on to learn more...

Signature Talk 01:
Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

I believe in delivering education in a way that empowers those listening. The lecture mindset can leave people feeling isolated or deflated, but delivering actionable education doesn't have to make an audience feel overwhelmed! 

I love to meet my audience where they are, in a space where there is no hierarchy. Where we can learn from one another, and be open and honest about what can help us grow.


A note from Laylee:

Signature Talk 02:
Becoming an Educator

Signature Talk 03:
Beat the Burnout

transitioning into the role of educator; because industries thrive when experts share their knowledge

It’s time to cultivate confidence in order to step into our greatness, build lives we love, and create impact for those around us!

Time Management + Scheduling for Success : Beat the Burnout  by intentionally setting boundaries 

Keynote Speaker
From the tangible to the inspirational, I love to mix personal storytelling with motivation for my audience to walk away ready to take on the world!

Small Groups / Breakouts
Small group settings make me feel right at home, with the classroom vibes! I believe small group speaking should be interactive and personal.

Podcast Guest
I love a good, open conversation! being a podcast guest is always pleasure; and hosting my own podcast is rewarding as well!


What to Expect

I'm an open book.

I'm open and transparent about my experiences: I don't hold back from sharing my own mistakes or getting vulnerable while on the stage. I tell it like it is, with the hope that truth and honesty will allow others to learn from my experience and walk away feeling equipped and inspired.

I might break out my Teacher Voice

Just kidding! Well, kind of... I spent seven years as a high school teacher. If a room full of high school kids teaches you anything, it's how to keep an audience engaged. I'm confident in presenting to a room full of people, and I have plenty of expertise designing a classroom experience. (Plus, I love providing handouts and worksheets for tangible takeaways!)

So, here's the thing...

Sometimes I dish out a little bit of tough love. Don't worry, I always deliver it with kindness and humor! But I'm a believer in telling people the truth they need to hear. I believe that even tough truths can be delivered with both honesty and kindness... and we can all walk away better for it.
