STACY IS AN AWARD-WINNING PROFESSIONAL SPEAKER!
As a standup comic, master storyteller, TEDx speaker, and semi-finalist for World Champion of Public Speaking in the Toastmasters International Speech Contest, Stacy has spent (and continues to spend) thousands of hours entertaining and enlightening audiences. Add to that her experience as a screenwriter and story editor in Hollywood, as well as being a respected author, and you get
It's your story. Find it. Write it. Share it.
Stacy speaks professionally on:
The pros and cons of traditional publishing versus self-publishing, and why an author would choose one over the other.
How independent authors can keep their intellectual property rights, and control the creative and marketing direction of their content.
The power of story (either personally or in the corporate world), story structure, and finding your story's message.
The author of the popular book, The Memoir Midwife: Nine Steps to Self Publishing Your Book, Stacy is a master storyteller and has mentored hundreds of people to become published authors. She developed her Story Mapping Method so that busy people can write their books with confidence, even if they aren’t writers.
She is a member of the Writers Guild of America (WGA-west), and within that, the Committee of Women Writers, Alliance of Women Directors, and Toastmasters.
As a host, facilitator, keynote speaker, or panelist, Stacy will take your event to the next level with her experience, insights, wit, and humor.
Stacy tailors her keynote to every audience, but here's the gist:
FIND YOUR STORY, FIND YOUR VOICE
Now more than ever, the world is ready to listen to women. Given this opportunity to be heard, what do you want to say? What stories do we want to tell? In this inspiring and informational keynote for content-creators of all walks, Stacy illustrates the importance of personal experiences and vulnerability, whether your story is narrative or non-fiction. Traditionally women and men have been taught to shy away from sharing emotional experiences and "toughen up" in business or when the chips are down. But here's the big flaw in that logic: It's that very vulnerability that we suppress that makes a story relatable. And if a story is relatable, it engages. And when you engage, people LISTEN. Embrace your vulnerability and emotions, especially when you create, and then use them to educate and enlighten, whether it be in entertainment or business.
Every woman is encrypted with the DNA of the women that have come before her. Our stories are
generationally cumulative, which means every woman has a story to tell.
And every story has a message.
Whether you’re writing a corporate story or a personal story, whether it’s a book, screenplay, podcast, or play, Stacy explains in her keynote how to focus not only on story structure, but more importantly your story’s personal message--how to find it, how it relates to you (or your business), and what it is that you ultimately want to say. That's when your voice finally lets itself be heard. It's only then that your story will truly engage, touch hearts, and make a difference.
