I don’t just “speak” … I design a customized speech that becomes a motivational experience with relevant, actionable and interactive take-a-way’s.

Judi Holler is a keynote speaker, author, and a professionally trained improviser and alumni of The Second City’s Conservatory in Chicago, Illinois. Judi studied and performed improv theatre at night while working full time by day in the meetings industry in sales and marketing for companies like Marriott, Omni, and Starwood Hotels before starting her company, HOLLA! Productions, in 2013.

Judi is a past president of Meeting Professionals International, Chicago Area Chapter, and was named one of the 40 under 40 in the meetings industry by Connect magazine in 2015. Judi has a passion for the meetings industry and is proud to work with Meetings Mean Business® to advocate for the undeniable value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions bring to people, businesses and communities.

Judi’s book on Fear, titled “Fear Is My Homeboy®: How to Slay Doubt, Boss Up, and Succeed on Your Own Terms”, was recently endorsed by Mel Robbins calling it: “relatable, relevant and most importantly ACTIONABLE!” Fear Is My Homeboy® comes out May 28, 2019 and is available for pre-sale now on Amazon, 800 CEO Read, and Barnes & Noble.

When Judi is not keynoting conferences, testing out new fear experiments and/or creating content for you … she is most likely riding her Peloton bike, deep in a book, or hanging out with her husband Scott and their golden retriever, Tito!

Judi likes her books non-digital, her wine bubbly, and her music hip-hop.

Judi’s Mission : To stop fear from stealing your joy and robbing you of opportunities to succeed the way you really want. Judi’s wants to help you transform fear into a powerful secret weapon so you can connect in even more powerful and profitable ways.

Judi’s Vision : A world so brave that fear is actually a motivator and a world so courageous that regret has been removed from the dictionary because you are way too busy making things happen for yourself!

Influencers in Judi’s work : Brené Brown is her Beyoncé. Mel Robbins is her spirit animal. Amy Poehler is her favorite funny girl. Marie Forleo reminds her that “everything is figure-out-able”. Steven Pressfield is her Fear Doctor. Dr. Dre reminds her to roll to the beat. And Seth Godin inspires her to go make things happen.

The Art of Being Unexpected: How to Blow Minds and Stay Relevant

Just imagine how you would feel if …

  • You had more patience at work and at home
  • You could earn more
  • You felt more productive and less overwhelmed
  • You had the guts to dance with your fear
  • You felt confident to ask for what you want

The world is accelerating at such a rapid pace has people more on edge than ever. The world you live and work in has never been more crowded or noisy.

And now, more than ever, you have to find a way to rise above that noise. To stand out. To stay relevant. And to be the one we can’t live without.

The real challenge in today’s society is simply getting the attention of the people that can buy from you, hire you, promote you and/or recommend you. Sales Teams, Marketers and Leaders at all levels are desperately trying to capture attention and resonate with clients, prospects and colleagues who all expect more.

Is there a secret weapon? Yes. Your authentic brand. Your vulnerability. Your vibe.

The problem? “Personal Branding” has been made to seem trendy and fluffy. Yet, there could not be one single more important investment you could make in life … the investment in you! The investment in your mind, energy, and wellness.

Every day we are missing critical opportunities to connect in powerful and profitable ways because we lack the confidence to do so.

This session will show you another way.

Participants will learn how to use Judi’s Personal Branding Portfolio and will take-a-way the following:

  • How to promote yourself internally and externally
  • What a personal brand is and what it is not
  • How to embrace change and land better professional opportunities
  • Tools to provide more focus and productivity
  • How to increase your “luck” factor
  • Strategies that will help you expand the reach of your network

Fear Is My Homeboy®: How to Get Brave and Start Taking Action

How would you feel if …

  • You could thrive in times of extreme change
  • You had less emotional reactivity in stressful situations
  • You could easily separate things you can control from those you cant
  • You felt more organized and less overwhelmed
  • You weren’t burdened by a fear of failure

This interactive session uses the fundamentals of improv theatre to help participants fight fear and get brave, so they can avoid self destruction and have less emotional reactivity in stressful situations.

You hear this all the time: “Everything you want is on the other side of fear” … yet, how do we get to the other side of fear?

This interactive session will challenge you to reimagine how you deal with fear + help you put a plan in place to start taking action. Participants will leave this “fear boot camp” with a plan to finally start advancing their goals, personally and/or professionally.

Each participant will receive their very own workbook and will walk step by step through a fear setting exercise that will help them take action and begin to put a plan in place personally and/or professionally to start advancing a dream or goal they have.

Busy By Design: The 7 Habits That Are Killing Your Productivity

Being busy is making us sick. It’s robbing us of new opportunities to thrive. It’s stealing our joy. This session will teach you how to get rid of the energy sucking tasks draining your life so you can start living with intention and focus. You’ll learn the secret weapon to winning at work and at life: Getting “busy by design”!

I believe decluttering and focus are actual super powers. And now more than ever we are craving this sort of disconnection because we have never been more connected than ever. And by the way … We are also living in a historic pace of acceleration. Which means we are constantly out of breath, trying to keep up, catch up and the second we do … it all changes.

So many times we are last on our own list. Because of this, you end up feeling irritable and frustrated. You never seem to catch up. You are always busy but never feel productive. You are constantly overwhelmed and have lost your joy in the journey. There is a better way! It is possible to go from being “crazy busy” to being “busy by design”. And it’s not only possible, it can save your life! By pursuing less you can actually achieve more! This session will show you how.

Participants will take-a-way the following:

  • The 7 Deadly Habits of Productivity
  • How to effectively manage your time
  • Why multi-tasking doesn’t work
  • Productivity tools and tips you can start using right now to declutter your personal and professional life
  • Why access is your #1 deadly sin
  • Learn about the VOLT planning system to help you 3x your productivity
  • How to use the “big 3” idea to finally make progress on your task list
  • How to work less and achieve more!
