Speaking Topics

Reframe Your Story

In this keynote Tammy asks you to think about the unhelpful stories you tell yourself that hold you back. She will spur you to change the conversation you have with yourself so that you can adjust your behaviors, exhibit new skills and transform perceptions about what you can accomplish personally and professionally. Change your mindset, change the conversation, change your life.

Do Less Sh*t

Tammy sheds light on why research has shown that being perceived as strategic is more challenging for women than men. She tests you to question the value you add at work and home, why it matters and what it’s costing you. You will be compelled to move from striking off tasks on long to-do lists to actioning strategic priorities; from constantly being busy to adding value. You will be spurred to change what you’re known for and learn how to complete valuable tasks that matter to your brand, your earnings, your promotability and your health and well-being.

Leaders are Champions

Tammy discusses learnings from organizations that are making headway and those struggling dismally. The real solution it turns out is the critical role of people managers in leading the charge. Expectations of leaders are changing, and rapidly. Learn how to actively shape culture, coach differently and pay attention to critical markers and metrics.
