Sometimes a keynote or Panel 2.0 just won’t do. That’s when you need an experience designed just for your event!
When one of my keynote topics or a Panels 2.0 session isn’t quite what you were looking for, then let’s throw on our red capes and start brainstorming. That might means a customized keynote that’s spot-on. Or maybe it means infusing an expected experience with a new, engaging twist. Then again, it may require something totally out of the box.
Real stories say it all. Check out ones below!
Regardless of the situation, the goal is the same: Help meeting planners be a super hero by crafting energizing event experiences so that women get more from each moment and the organization creates more impact.
Quick Story: A Bodacious Business Women’s Awards Celebration that Men Loved, Too!
The Journal Record of Oklahoma City was holding their 35th annual Woman of the Year event recognizing 50 Oklahoma women in business, an awards celebration with cocktails, dinner, and more for nearly 600.
Six weeks before the big day they had the venue, food and beverage, and agenda. They were still searching for a keynote speaker who would honor the 50 women, as well as inspire everyone – women and men – at the event.
When they learned of my book Bodacious! Woman they immediately wanted to use this as the event theme. I created a customized keynote that focused on three characteristics of all 50 honorees that truly made them bodacious women. One of those characteristics was tied into a deliberate moment I created to recognize all the bodacious men who supported and believed in them.
“Mary Foley is terrific! She had several advance calls and customized her program, reading our publication to gain knowledge about the women honorees and using those details in her speech. Both women and men were totally engaged. We had very positive feedback; she’s great to work with and I highly recommend her.”
