Speaking Programs


Get out of your head, move outside of your comfort zone and step into your strength!  This powerful presentation will ask you to examine your thoughts on dreaming big, improving your mindset and taking the power back from your limiting beliefs.  Hearing and believing you CAN will help you become the person you were meant to be.

WHAT? WHAT DID YOU SAY WRONG? Keynote or Workshop

It’s true, some people have the gift of speaking so smoothly we instantly relate.  Others say it all wrong and still others struggle to get their point across at all?  Knowing ourselves, how we reallyfeel (it’s not what you think) and effectively verbalizing it is truly an art. When you do, you connect; when you connect you increase your chances dramatically at living and working in harmony!


Successful lives and great leadership do not occur accidentally, they come by design. The standards you set, the short-term goals you share and long-term strategies you implement must be intentional!  Irmadene walks you through concepts that will provide a working plan to develop goals and strategies that will benefit you, your family and your entire organization.
