Presented by Jessica Pettitt, M.Ed., CSP

Jessica asks, "Do you know what differentiates you from other speakers or trainers in your topic area? Do you really?" Be prepared for a highly interactive, high energy, humorous afternoon where NO question is off limits as she leads an exercise to help you know how to lean on what makes you YOU and not THEM.

Participants will:
  1. clearly identify their points of distinction
  2. grow their realm of influence in their niche market
  3. develop executable tangible projects to collaborate on and contribute to their area of expertise
Humor is a great equalizer and is often the quickest way to diffuse conflict and move toward real connection. With a background in stand-up comedy, and now speaking on stage as a diversity educator and moving teams from abstract to action, Jessica Pettitt, frames even difficult subjects in an engaging and welcoming way. As a professional speaker, her expertise earned her the Certified Speaking Professional designation from the National Speakers Association. A designation held by fewer than 800 people world-wide.

Audiences are inspired to stand up and take action as Jessica Pettitt leads them down the path to understanding they are good enough to make the changes they seek. Challenging long held assumptions about the type of people who drive change and are successful, Jessica eradicates excuses and provides strategies to communicate openly and actively seek success.

Let's roll up our sleeves, make space for real talk, and develop reality based plans, for actual change.
