"TGIF: Thank Goodness I'm Female"

A talk that will change your perception on fear and inspire you to take action

Michelle’s humorous and inspiring speaking style has been captivating women across the globe. With authentic storytelling, engaging visuals and her 100 Days Without Fear experience, Michelle will show you how to challenge your comfort zone to tap into your full potential. 

 In this fun and energizing session, you’ll learn about:

  • Dealing with the unknown
  • Seeking growth over safety
  • Daring to fail
  • Embracing authenticity
  • Standing up to the impostor in you
  • Redefining fear, from obstacle to opportunity

One of Michelle’s key findings lies on Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs where she uncovered how our needs not only motivate us, but they also limit us. By learning how to prioritize and negotiate with our needs, we open a world of opportunities.

“I’d like to extend a very sincere thank you from all of us at Microsoft for your talk last week in San Diego.  It was a really wonderful event for the participants. The only complaint that we’ve received is that we had a limit on the number of attendees and so not everyone could attend!  There are a lot of people now asking themselves “What is the BEST that could happen?”  Thank you for inspiring bravery and teaching us about our fears!” ~ Amélie Glon Werner, Business Management, Microsoft
