Connie is not your typical motivational keynote speaker.

Connie motivates audiences DIFFERENTLY by fueling them with exciting new ideas, mindsets, attitudes and solutions that will empower them to tackle even the toughest challenges in today’s crazy 24/7 world!

Connie is honest-to-goodness funny!

Connie started doing comedy when she was 14 and never looked back. Her humor allows her to tackle even the toughest issues organizations face with substance and style. Connie’s contagious sense of humor enables your audience to dig deeper and learn so she can keep those “ah ha” moments coming fast and furious.

Connie is all about RESULTS.

Most keynote speakers simply teach audiences WHAT to do.  A few speakers show audiences HOW to do it. Connie does all that and MORE.  She helps your team understand WHY it’s important to change behaviors, re-think attitudes, re-assess old ideas and get on board so they can make things happen!

Connie gives the word CUSTOMIZATION a whole new meaning.

She literally goes inside the minds of the people within your organization, your industry, and audience so she knows exactly what they are going through.  Her uncanny insight into human nature will have every person in your audience feeling like she is talking just to them.  It is rare for a speaker to have that ability to connect in such a meaningful way — and that connection keeps her message alive long after the event is over.

Connie is down-to-earth and REAL!

Audiences believe in her and trust that she has their success and welfare in mind at all times.  Connie knows that people want, expect and deserve their speaker to be a REAL person sharing REAL solutions that can help them achieve REAL results.

The Power of Personality and Communication to Increase Engagement

Life continues to shift in ways we never imagined. People working remotely, virtual meetings taking over, families bridging gaps on zoom… Communication skills have NEVER been more important than now! At work and at home. Connie is your go-to guru for understanding just exactly how this people puzzle works so you can get your message across whether live or from a screen.

Imagine what you could accomplish if you could decode the mystery of human behavior and truly understand what makes people do what they do and say what they say (including yourself!). Research shows that the #1 key to SUCCESS is the ability to get along with other people, personally and professionally.

Bottom line: How you choose to relate to, communicate with, be accountable to, resolve conflict with and garner respect from other people will directly impact your future.  Most importantly, those skills will determine your ability to attract and sustain healthy relationships. And that is the key to a lifetime of success as you lead, manage, sell, produce, collaborate, work as a team, interact with friends and family, and strive to excel as a human being on this planet.

With laugh-out-loud humor, killer take-away strategies and her amazing insights into ourselves and others (including a few who “drive you crazy”), Human Relations expert Connie Podesta will both challenge you and empower you with the knowledge you need to get along better with the people in your life. Connie will take you right inside the minds and personalities of the people you deal with everyday — bosses, colleagues, partners, customers, friends, and family so YOU can ACT, rather than REACT to whatever life throws your way. Get ready for less stress and more success!
