Denise Ryan is a dynamic keynote speaker who can motivate and engage your group. She provides keynote speeches on many topics, but these are some of the most requested:
Great Balls of Fire! (Also called Keeping the Flame)
One of the greatest challenges we all face is keeping ourselves motivated. This is particularly difficult and extremely important with our fast-paced high responsibility jobs today. It’s easy to lose enthusiasm and get burned out, stressed out, and finally – checked out. This high-energy session gives attendees six steps for getting the fire back in their lives professionally and personally. It’s not just a motivational speech; it’s a method participants can apply long after the speech.
Motivation by Chocolate
This keynote features two things everyone likes – chocolate and motivation! It teaches nine key concepts to help participants get more out of work and life. They’ll learn about persistence, passion, effective allocation of resources, the law of diminishing returns, and much more! The session includes a chocolate tasting to demonstrate not only how to appreciate chocolate, but also life itself. Give them chocolate and bring down the house!
How to Communicate with Everyone Who Isn’t You
Life would be so easy if everyone we interacted with was just like us. They would understand our cryptic e-mail messages, forgive our bizarre text messages, and understand why we unfriended them on Facebook. There would be no hard feelings, no conflict, and clearly, world peace. Unfortunately, no one else is exactly like you and to succeed in life and business, you have to work with the crazy, the angry, the silly, and yes, even the smarter and more articulate. This session will help you do just that. You will learn about barriers to communication and how to remove them. You’ll take a communication styles quiz and find out just how different a large portion of the world really is and how to get along with them. People won’t stop being crazy, but this session will help you stay sane.
Setting Your Followers on Fire!
This session opens with a discussion of the traits great leaders possess. Then we move on to the common mistakes that leaders make (micromanaging, failing to define expectations, criticizing rather than coaching and more) and how to avoid them. Then we get to the juicy stuff – what really motivates people (let go of Maslow’s Hierarchy – we’ve got something better!). If you want to get more from your employees, if you want to raise morale (without raising pay), or if you just want to be a better boss, this keynote is for you.
Communication and Power for Women
Often women have to walk the fine line between being effective and being perceived as a witch. This keynote will help you 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!
