Often women have to walk to fine line between being effective and being perceived as a witch. At the Women’s Professional Development Luncheon, keynote speaker Denise Ryan of FireStar Speaking will tell you how to stay on the right side of the line! You’ll learn how to communicate powerfully (even when you might not feel powerful), things that can weaken women professionally and how to avoid them, and 10 power tactics that work for women. Stop waiting to get what you want and start making it happen!
Raleigh, North Carolina based professional speaker Denise Ryan is a motivational pyromaniac. Her infectious energy and enthusiasm will set a room ablaze. After earning millions for clients in the corporate world, Denise realized she had a talent for firing people up. She parlayed this gift into FireStar, a company specializing in enthusiasm. Fifteen years later, Denise motivates and energizes large corporations and small businesses across America at conferences, board retreats and annual meetings. Her no nonsense, direct delivery coupled with her astute business savvy and irreverent wit leave audiences not only laughing, but with actionable tips. Not your typical “motivational speaker,” Denise is genuine and real. Denise’s infectious enthusiasm motivates the unmotivated and challenges the challenged. Consider yourself warned: FireStar programs are five-alarm scorchers.
