Reinvention: How To Be A Step Ahead in a Changing World

The average person will change careers between three and seven times in their lifetime. So much time and energy is now devoted to transitioning from one job to another. Technology is turning our world upside down. The life span of a career has become as short as our attention spans. As quick as you can say “Squirrel,” your job has become irrelevant. You’ve been downsized. Your skills are outdated. Or the career path you chose no longer suits you. All of us are in a forced state of constant reinvention. It’s time to take control. Erica taps into her journey of reinvention with an emphasis shifting to a Success Mindset with hands-on strategies for audience members to be proactive and create the life they want in our constantly changing world.


Social for Good

Aimed at businesses large and small, social media has become an essential marketing tool for brands. Learn how businesses can leverage the fantastic potential of social media and avoid the dangerous minefields by using social for good. Topics include how the value of relationship marketing, how to grow an online community, customer service using social media, and curating a business profile to engage consumers.



A panel’s success is directly connected to how well it’s moderated. Knowing the right questions to ask, having enough experience to control the conversation, and the experience to ensure each panelist is comfortable – all this is familiar territory for a media veteran like Erica. Equally qualified to lead conversations about music, media, motherhood and marketing and more, moderating is Erica’s specialty.



When the host of an event is comfortable on stage, it relaxes an audience, confident they’re in good hands. When the host is able to think on their feet, a potentially dull event jumps to life. Having years of experience improvising on live television, broadcasting live from locations around the world, Erica Ehm brings confidence and a down-to-earth elegance to every event she hosts.
