Speaking at Your Event



I love being on stage sharing my experience, knowledge and insights to inspire others. I have fun speaking to audiences that are engaged, curious and open to learn and I love group interaction and Q&A. I’ve been Master of Ceremonies (MC), delivered Keynotes, and presented to groups large and small on a variety of topics. Small and intimate or standing room only, I love to connect with, engage, inspire and motivate those in attendance.

Testimonials:

“Michelle is one of the most engaging speakers I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. She is compassionate, kind, and empathetic, which makes her an ideal speaker to talk about topics such as engaging Indigenous communities in a culturally responsive way. Michelle is very relatable to her audience and is able provide a unique perspective on marketing, as what we do in health care truly is marketing healthy concepts! Michelle has worked with non-Indigenous groups to help them understand privilege and the legacy of residential schools. She has helped health care professionals understand how to be an ally instead of an expert; allies work with their clients to come up with solutions, experts tell clients what to do. Michelle is an asset to any workshop or educational event. I have seen her speak many times and still learn from her each time.”
