LEAP START!™ -The perfect conference opener keynote
Picture your typical conference: at the first break people immediately pull out their phones. Why? Because talking to strangers is hard. Many people go to conferences with anxiety about walking into the opening reception solo or talking to strangers at “networking breaks”. Gayle and Judy’s signature conference program creates a “permission to network” atmosphere and reminds audiences of all the networking opportunities at your conference. LEAP START!™ delivers the very best tips to start networking immediately—even introverts! This high-energy presentation by two of Canada’s top networking experts is the perfect way to kick off your conference, regional or national meeting. Expect some flying frogs!

ENGAGED WOMAN LEADER™ – For women’s networks and conferences
Networking is a key leadership competency for women yet research shows that women will often “check off” all the other work on their to-do list before they make time to network.

Women in leadership roles find this program an important refresher in networking and collaboration skills.
