Partial List of Speaking Topics

Creating a Life You Love

There are multiple factors to consider when creating a life by design. Most will affect your personal and professional lives. A partial list of questions you will consider with Monique:

Things like:

  • Am I living authentically in a way that I show up how I want to show up–at work and at home?

  • Am I controlling my job, or is it controlling me? How can I not let my job control my life

  • How & where am I really spending my time? What and where do I need to change to optimize my day and how happy do I feel?

Creating a life you love is about increasing your joy and decreasing your “cringe.” Monique leaves you with a few actionable takeaways that you can implement to make an immediate impact on your life’s design.

The Power Of Choice

This speech comes from a place of creating the outcomes we seek. It illustrates that In all responses, in all reactions, in every moment, we have agency and choice. The responses and reactions that we have—and the micro-decisions that we make—create the lives we lead today, and those we will lead many years from now.

Monique unpacks:

  • External narratives: the stories that we project about ourselves to others around us.

  • Internal narratives: those we create with and about ourselves that can either prevent us from achieving our potential or propel us beyond our wildest expectations. 

  • Environment: what can you do to set yourself up for success, on a daily basis?

Monique helps you with takeaways to choose more wisely. This has both personal and professional takeaways that have audiences see possibilities with small changes they can make to create a larger impact.

Monique had the opportunity to speak to the Jabra GN’s Women’s network and share some of her experiences – those that helped shape her into the business owner she is today. Monique is an excellent storyteller both in verbal and written word. The interaction with the audience was amazing to watch as I could tell her story resonated with most of the women attending. Her style is engaging, and she has a unique way of bringing the audience into the story. I would highly recommend Monique as a speaker. Thanks, Monique, for telling your story!
