  • I worked with Stephanie when she conducted a live webinar for my organization’s audience of corporate social responsibility professionals. She took the time to really understand our audience, figure out what motivates them, and created her content accordingly. I would recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for a fresh perspective in the business world. Overall, Stephanie was a pleasure to work – she made planning and organizing the webinar smooth and easy, and her positivity is contagious!

  • Stephanie’s presentation was so unique-her presentation was a new and different way of looking at understanding your own value proposition.  She was able to present “brainy” info in a fun, approachable way!  What a great program- useful for business owners, corporate people, and entrepreneurs!

  • Stephanie was an outstanding choice for our business leadership event.  Stephanie provided thoughtful, actionable strategies on how to find your “why” in your career and your life.   The executives and entrepreneurs who attended felt that Stephanie’s presentation was engaging and inspiring, and relevant.  As a result, I had multiple requests from attendees who would like to follow up with Stephanie individually for personalized coaching.  Stephanie is truly an incredible resource, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a brilliant, inspiring speaker that can provide tangible strategies to help find passion in life and career.

  • The workshop was a wonderful success and Stephanie expertly guided the conversation and event so that each indivdiual participant left feeling engaged, inspired, and with a better sense of purpose and direction. The energy level during the event was palpable, and it was a memorable (and for some, life-changing) experience for the individuals and the group.

  • Thanks Stephanie. I enjoyed the experience and the opening it provided. I have left the vision board next to my meditation seat and look at it sometimes. Some things have manifested in amazing ways like the Mandela Tribute below (we made it happen in 43 hours), speaking and writing, yoga and spiritual life, love life etc...

  • In the world there are two groups of people: Consumers, and creators. “Consumers” are people who “consume” more than they create, and “creators” are people who “create” more than they consume. Since “creation” starts and ends in the proverbial “right brain” I can’t think of anyone more in tune with this than Stephanie.

  • I had the pleasure of taking Stephanie's Right Brain Entrepreneur Workshop with our management team. Rare to be part of something that's both eye-opening and fun. The workshop was transformational in helping the group tap into their creativity. It was also a fabulous team building exercise -- certainly revealed a side of some colleagues that you don't often see. Success in business is all about ideas. Effectively being able to tap the artist within the business person and unlock that creative energy is very powerful. I highly recommend Stephanie's workshop. Good stuff.
