Is This My Life? A guide to finding the answer
It’s the question we often find ourselves asking when we realize, almost by accident, that we’ve veered off our intended path despite our best intentions. And we suddenly wake up one morning feeling lost and adrift, not quite remembering how we got on this quicksand island. In this presentation, Kelsey shares raw wisdom and gritty perspective to help you deal with the truths and turning points that are awaiting you just around the corner.
Never Ready, Set, Go: A game plan for where you want to go
You’ve heard it before: Going outside our comfort zone is what cues epic stuff to happen in our lives and careers. But oftentimes, we let the risk of failure outweigh the probability of success, simply because we can’t shake the heavy fears that are piggybacking on our dreams and goals. The reality is: We’re never ready. And while we’re constantly planning, psyching ourselves up and assuming that the worst will happen, someone else is trying—and getting a huge head start on us. Kelsey shares some off-the-cuff candor and unfiltered entrepreneurial experiences to show you how to go from considering all the ‘what-ifs’ to all the ‘how-tos’, so you can create a game plan for where you want to go (and get there in record time).
Back of the Envelope – How to establish a sound and progressive practice using creativity, risk, and innovation
Most of what we know for sure can be captured on the back of an envelope. The issue with “back-of-the-envelope” management is that we spend time in comfort, in the things we know, repeating what we know works…until it doesn’t. Kelsey Ramsden was Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneur, ranked #1 by Profit and Chatelaine Magazines in 2012 and 2013. She has founded and run businesses as diverse as construction and children’s toys. She’ll walk you through the fundamentals of rethinking, clarifying blind spots, and how you can build a solid strategy for the future by changing what you hold dear on the back of that envelope. Get down ‘n’ dirty with your hold-ups so you can unearth your awesomeness!
Barefoot Boardroom MBA
The Barefoot MBA kicks you out of bed, walks you to the mirror and shows you that life is worth every minute. Ramsden started with gusto, got knocked down, felt supported and was given systems to get back up and in line with her own version of success. Kelsey is a master and commander, artist and mathematician, mover and shaker, giver and moneymaker. She has developed a process to create the life of your dreams that satisfies your inner gifts, your supporting crew, your loyal customers and your legacy of this life.
Workshop | Clarity CompassThe Clarity Compass is a full day of training which starts with contemplative and essential pre-work, allowing you to show up laser focused to get deep deliverable rich outcomes from the day. Clarity and Confidence are built and nurtured using a personal compass. Kelsey Ramsden leads the conversation with her always authentic presence and unique blend of caring and candor. She sees every woman’s want to create a full, purposeful life both personally and professionally while aligning with her own unique definition of success. By the end of the day participants will better understand: Internal motivation; How your image represents you; How to show up, make decisions and create the life you want across the board. Audiences receive actionable takeaways to drive outcomes to success.
Workshop | Leadership Beyond the Box - Risk: An Opportunity with A ReputationWhat is your attitude to risk? Are you a natural risk taker who gets energized by the danger or will you do anything to avoid risk or try to reduce it as much as possible? Understanding one’s own risk type and that of others significantly helps professionals make better decisions for themselves and understand how others make decisions. It helps with alignment but mostly it helps us make better decisions and attempt things we might not otherwise attempt in our pursuit of success. In this workshop participants will explore their individualized risk type, profile and attitude toward a variety of different types of risk. They will leave with an understanding that risk is all about knowing where our own blind spots and biases are with respect to risk.
