Around 150 tech female attendees listened, learned, laughed and danced! The impact was huge and everyone left with the courage to face a challenge in their lives. We even received applications of women interested in working at Microsoft who pointed out they gathered the courage to do so after hearing Michelle.

“After almost a decade of delivering my keynote presentation, I’ve noticed that people don’t see me on stage… they see themselves. Not their current selves, but their most accomplished selves, their bravest selves, their future selves. Crazy, right?

I show them what could happen if only they had the courage to say Hello! to their fears, to embrace change, to say YES to new opportunities, to trust their bold ideas, to ask for what they want/need/deserve, to take risks aligned to their values and give themselves (their REAL selves) a chance.

In 2015 I chose to change my life by facing 100 fears. I decided to go from “autopilot-mode” to living fully, from checking “society’s boxes” to checking my OWN, and from running away from fear, to SEEING the opportunities behind it. What I didn’t know was that changing my life could also impact millions along the way.

Sharing my success story in a vulnerable, authentic and genuine way inspires people in the audience to give courage a chance by reframing the question “what’s the WORST that could happen?” into “what’s the BEST that can happen?”
