The Pursuit of Authenticity

The Pursuit of Authenticity: Tools, Tips and Approaches for Being the Best Version of Yourself


Kurt Cobain once said, “I’d rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.” During these uncertain and ever-changing times audiences want the truth more than ever before. With regard to speakers, many are looking for new and innovative ways to accelerate their business. One such way is to become the best version of our selves – to consistently live what we give.

Our customers don’t want fake, phony, ego or pretend. They want experts who present to express not impress. Going forward, as professional speakers, our businesses may hit a ceiling if we are less authentic. Audiences are more learned, critical and sensitive. They’ve become deeper thinkers. And they expect speakers to focus on productivity and performance not likes and followers.
