With all that, business (and life) can get overwhelming, especially when you’re managing people. The problem is, change ain’t going away.

Fun, Engaging, and Interactive Keynote

Life requires decisions, and each decision is fraught with unknowns. Unknowns mean risk, and risk’s co-pilot is fear! What a fun combination! Young leaders also often lack the experience that can help mitigate that fear, which can paralyze them from being as effective as they could be. Even adults allow the fear of unknowns to stop them from moving forward. That stops now!

After this engaging and energizing keynote, the young leaders will be fired up to get out there and intelligently embrace unknowns. Through fun stories and time-tested knowledge from her best-selling book Get Over It! 47 Tips for Embracing the Discomfort of Change, courage igniter Anne Bonney will turn up the heat with tactics for dealing with that fear. She scorches fear myths and sparks the desire to dive into unknowns and lead the way with strength, positivity and confidence.
