About the Speaker

Darlene was born missing the gene that creates the fear of speaking. She has been on stage since she was child and it is where she thrives! Darlene believes that every person deserves to live his or her own life, not one manufactured by someone else’s expectations. On stage she shares powerful, inspirational, and empowering stories gleaned from her life and her clients’ lives to show audience members that anything is possible, regardless of circumstances. Her presentations are innovative, interactive, and engaging presentations and are customized for your audience’s needs. From workshop to keynote, Darlene’s fast-paced, fun, and interactive style will have your audience leaving feeling motivated and armed with an action plan so they can create the life and business of their dreams.


Signature Topics Include:

• What is Stopping You? 
The five key ways to conquer fear and circumstances to live the life of your dreams.

• “Why?” The Most Important Question to Answer 
Your “why” is the genesis of your passion and purpose and when you can articulate it to your audience, they will connect on an emotional level and want to hire you. During this presentation you will learn how to identify your unique “why” and present it to the world.

• Leverage the Power of Story to Connect, Motivate, and Inspire
Story-based marketing is the most effective way to connect and engage with your best clients to boost your business by raising trust and credibility, as well as differentiating yourself from the competition. In this interactive presentation, your audience members will uncover stories that they can use in their marketing to sell.

Darlene is indeed a promise keeper. A woman of her words. She delivers her style as an author and speaker with confidence. A powerful message that resonates, touches and stirs the soul of those that truly listen and hear. It has always been my honour to have Darlene as our guest speaker at WMAD and a treasured friend. We look forward to her coming back to our Windsor area whenever she can.

Darlene was a pleasure to work with while speaking at Fuckup Nights Toronto. She was patient, easy to work with, and proved to be an excellent fit for our audience. I would recommend her for future speaking roles!
