Laura Gassner Otting, Author and Leadership Expert
Many of us spend our lives pursuing a singular idea of success, one that was created for us by someone else. We give votes to those who shouldn’t even have voices and strive to go faster and faster even as we find ourselves falling further and further behind. We chase gold stars, we check all the boxes, we Lean In – and we still feel incomplete. In this keynote, Laura Gassner Otting teaches you how to ignore the rules that created your limits, align your energies and your actions, and do work that really matters so that you can live your best life. This talk lights a fire within that catalyzes energy and excitement towards becoming the change agent needed to maximize impact.

Dr. Yolanda Flournah-Perkins, Author,
Entrepreneur and Motivational Speaker
The semester she was scheduled to graduate from college, 23-year-old Flournah-Perkins was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison. During her imprisonment, she realized that she, and many other incarcerated women, had low self-esteem. From Federal Prison to Doctoral Degree, Dr. Yolanda Flournah-Perkins highlights her journey in her book, NOW: My Journey Your Lessons. This book was written to remind individuals that your life is not over after a mistake or wrong decision. Every single one of us possess within ourselves the full potential and ability to shatter glass ceilings, disrupt the status quo, and break down barriers. Today, Dr. Flournah-Perkins continues to share her story of incarceration in order to bring awareness and attention to the issue of low self-esteem, and to encourage, motivate, and inspire others who are released back into society.
