Julie Holmes

Business Speaker from Denver, CO - Will travel up to 500 miles

$3000 - $7500 per event
Hi! I'm Julie Holmes, and it's a pleasure to virtually meet you. I'm an INNOVATION and CREATIVITY SPEAKER, inventor, entrepreneur and corporate survivor. Before I tell you all the other credential-ly stuff, here's what you probably really care about - what audiences and bookers think of me and my programs on INNOVATION FOR THE REST OF US:

"Knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining - what more could you want in a speaker?!" - Barbara Moynihan, Audience Member
"Soooo refreshing - engaging and exciting. Very inspired RIGHT NOW! Engaging, energetic, different; Loved it! Thank you, Julie. I'm so fed up listening to "textbook" business talks. This is GREAT!" - Sophie Bryan, Audience Member

"Julie is a pleasure to work with, delivered the content exactly on brief, is prepared, professional, and reliable. I know when I've booked Julie to speak, I have nothing to worry about." - Claire Boyles, Event Organizer
"I booked Julie to speak at a sales and marketing conference I run. I sat in the audience feeling proud of my choice as she delivered an absolutely fantastic speech. She was engaging, energetic, funny, and challenging. As well as inspiring the audience, she also provided some very practical tips." - Andy Lopata, Event Organizer

As you can likely tell, I'm a bit fo a livewire on stage and in person! I specialize in a combination of MOTIVATION, INFORMATION and ACTION around how everyone can think like an inventor, find creative solutions, and solve complex problems. Having designed, built and delivered everything from tiny Bluetooth microphones to compelling new service offerings to million-dollar enterprise software for dozens of industries, I've not only been there, done that and gotten the t-shirt, but I've also helped organizations, associations, and corporations do the same in dozens of countries around the world.

Not sure if your group needs some enthusiastic innovation and creativity speaker? Consider this. Over the past two decades, we've seen a massive plummet in our creativity and problem-solving. You might recognize this trend - especially in younger employees - from phrases like, "I don't know where to start," or "Can you just tell me what you need me to do." Or perhaps you experience the impact of this purely by people's INABILITY TO JUST FIGURE IT OUT which results in increased management time, frustration (on everyone's part) and a lack of initiative.

Sure, technology is partly to blame. Easy access to information and entertainment have led all of us to just COAST ALONG on the STATUS QUO waiting for others to figure things out for us. The bigger culprit, however, is simply a lack of creative perspective and skills. AND THIS IS WHAT I CAN SHARE WITH YOUR AUDIENCE!

From leadership to sales to service, having an innovation mindset and skills helps us to go from UGH! to OH! and find creative solutions that disrupt patterns and make a massive difference to each of us professionally and personally. Warning! Side effects of increased innovation and creativity may include improved hiring and recruitment practices, increased initiative and ownership of problems and opportunities, swelling in efficiency, inflated egos and job satisfaction among employees and a constant positive, can do attitude that will concern your teenaged children.

I've created programs specifically for leaders, teams, corporations, and associations and they all have these three things in common:
1) Exceptional, thought-provoking content that is tailored to resonate with each audience
2) A heady mix of inspiration, motivation, and information that is immediately actionable and gets people thinking and talking
3) A relaxed and slightly smug organizer behind the scenes who's proud that they've picked me and relieved that I've been brilliant to work with

And just to give you the complete picture, when I'm not cracking jokes and sharing the awesomeness of innovation, I can be found trick training my dog, corralling a couple of teenagers and testing a wide variety of ice cream establishments. #willworkforicecream

Whew! That's a lot about me ... so what about YOU? What's your story and how can we work together to make your event a RAVING SUCCESS? Let's chat :).
