Keynotes & Workshops

"At the core of everything, is a relationship."

I combine an academic and real-life perspective with a personal and candid style to break down the subtle art of positive and strategic relationship building. We as people engage with so much, in so many ways, often times without critically taking into account the 'how'. My experiences have ranged from digital advertising to partnership development, to community building, to mentoring. At the core of each of these experiences, I examined how people engage and build relationships with platforms, content, and with one another. I've learned in time that constructive relationship building is vastly under considered and even less frequently taught. I'm passionate about shedding light on how positive relationship building needs to be the central strategy of your brand development.
