Brenda launched her speaking business in the fall of 2005, by offering training to businesses in her northern Iowa community. She spoke at her first statewide conference in January of 2008. Since that time, she has become a nationally-recognized conference speaker and audience favorite, keynoting at several hundred events in twenty-four states.

Words cannot express how grateful I am for the many organizations who have entrusted their conference, convention, and workplace groups to me. I have met so many talented, kind, and dedicated professionals who push through their own personal challenges to impact people’s lives for the better every day. You inspire me—and teach me—more than you can imagine.
From my end—as I enter my fifteenth year of this business—I have never been more committed to my ongoing learning, and to giving my best to educate, engage, and inspire the groups I work with. It would be my genuine honor and pleasure to work with you in the coming months.
