How to reclaim our best in a busy and distracted world

This is a heartfelt, personal, motivational talk about harnessing the power of a connection in time when we are drifting apart. We look at what it means for our brains and our relationships to live in a world full of distraction and busy-ness. We question what comes next if we continue in this direction, and how to head into the current and choose the best versions of ourselves, our business and our world.


1. To motivate and inspire the audience to prioritize connection and personal accountability
2. To challenge people to see the epidemic of isolation our country faces
3. To give brain-based tools for teams to manage stress and create meaningful connections

Emily's keynote experiences inspire people to question the status quo and consider their communication and trust building challenges from a fresh new perspective. Through story telling, interactive experiences, humor and vulnerability, she promotes thoughtful reflection, creates a shared vocabulary around new ideas, and provides tools people can apply immediately to see change. Emily's keynotes and workshops promote the values of emotional intelligence, personal accountability and being proactive about aligning with our best selves.
