Who are the Perserverance Speakers?


The answer is humble and simple. They are ordinary people who have learned how to share their extraordinary stories, and they do it with genuine passion to help others grow personally and professionally. They do it with genuine purpose to affect positive change in the world.

Through being sheltered at home in a pandemic, inundated with negative, misleading media messages of a nation divided, we have slowly and subliminally lost KEY elements that help us through adversity – positive mindset and human connection.


Perhaps the change we seek lies in not being talked to, but in connecting to. It lies in directly connecting with. That is why I never coach speakers to just give a speech for people to hear.


“I coach speakers to share a story that people can feel.”


Instead of waiting for engagements to speak, the Perseverance Speakers goal is to prioritize speaking to engage. When we initiate connection, we initiate the positive change we wish to see.
