Leaders have the power to make or break a company.  Not only are they responsible for making good business decisions, they shape the work experience for the rest of the employees in the organization.  For such an important role, people often receive surprisingly little direction and guidance.  

In this provocative keynote, Cecilia Gorman breaks down the key factors in being a great leader, and shows how to do a little better every single day.  Rather than trying to shape leaders to fit a certain mold, Cecilia shows how everyone can leverage their natural strengths to better connect with and inspire others.  

Using actionable, self-directed lessons applicable to business (and life), audience members learn how to step into their personal power and handle challenges and difficult situations head on. From swift decision making, to course correction after mistakes, to maintaining enthusiasm for their industry, audience members get a much-needed refresher on leading with purpose.  

Perfect for audiences looking for an injection of energy and enthusiasm, this session will springboard a positive shift in leadership at your organization.  We all have an awe-inspiring leader inside of us.  This session helps your team members unleash it. 


Career advancement is challenging for everyone, especially if you don’t know exactly what to do to drive your career forward.  In this inspiring keynote, Cecilia Gorman shares how employees can take more ownership over their futures, better promote themselves and their achievements, and get better (and faster) results.  

The needle on a person’s potential only moves if they are the one grabbing it by the horns and pulling.  That’s why getting ahead starts with adopting a mindset of ownership.  Cecilia explains the power of personal ownership, and how individuals must initiate the forward momentum of their careers rather than wait for someone else to do it on their behalf.

Cecilia digs deep on other key aspects of career growth, such as maintaining stellar performance, continuous learning, and deliberate networking.  With purpose and intention at its core, the lessons in this session teach the most effective ways employees can develop influence and boost their career stock without additional time or stress.  Attendees receive a Career Ownership Checklist to gauge and track actions toward success. 

This keynote is for anyone who hasn’t yet reached the summit of her career.  Attendees walk away feeling both prepared and inspired to get out there and own it! (a women-focused version of this talk is available)
