Speaking Engagements

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

Favorite Topic 01:
Preventing Burnout

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.

i'm about ACTIONABLE EDUCATION MIXED WITH A DOSE OF HUMOR AND HEART

A note from Laylee:

Favorite Topic 02:
Becoming an Educator

Favorite Topic 03:
Dance Workshop

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

finding balance and creating productivity without losing your passion for the job you love

helping women embrace their bodies and set free into creativity through dance and self expression

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.
