  • Oumar Dieng Motivational Speaker

    (7 reviews)

    I put my audience first and always create presentations that are specially designed for what their present needs are. I use unique storytelling techniques and concepts to increase knowledge retention. My background in languages and foreign cultures gives me an unparalleled advantage that allows me to connect very easily with any audience and speak on virtually any topic. I started speaking publicly in the early 1990s when I co-founded a youth organization aimed at promoting local arts and culture. Almost overnight, I found myself giving impromptu speeches to welcome local dignitaries and cultural government liaisons. My love for public speaking and writing grew exponentially from there, focusing on inspirational and motivational speaking (see The Motivational Voice Podcast) Over the years, I spoke to various audiences, ranging from youth to professionals in academic and corporate settings. My presentations range from keynote speeches, inspirational and motivational speeches, humorous speeches, seminars with audience engagement components to educational speeches. I enjoy helping my clients hold successful events by providing professional, fun and memorable speeches. At the end of the day, it is not just about a speech but about engaging, educating and inspiring people to take action and be the best version of themselves.

  • Ivy Hills Communication

    (4 reviews)

    I think one thing that sets me apart from other professional speakers is that I make audience engagement and participation a cornerstone of all of my programs. I do think having rock-solid content is vital, but I also understand the importance of delivering fun, interactive, humorous and engaging programs. What I love most about being a professional speaker is having the ability to positively impact peoples' lives on a regular basis.

  • Discovery Horse Speaks

    (2 reviews)

    As a Gestalt Life Coach I offer both personal and professional coaching. I am also a motivational speaker. At Dandelion Farm, home to Discovery Horse, I partner with horses to help my clients. On the phone I provide my clients the same experience without needing to come to the barn. I support people in discovering what is keeping them stuck. Stuck in relationships. Relationships with self, to others, to money, to our business, to our success, to our thoughts. The constant in all of this is you. My goal is to assist people in getting unstuck and creating healthy and sustainable relationships in their lives. Whether with the horses or on the phone I meet each person with authenticity, compassion and non-judgment. Believing that everyone wants to feel more heard in their lives I start by listening. And then I ask questions as people start to reflect on their lives from a different perspective. Gestalt is the German word for ‘whole’. Each session is another step towards wholeness. A choice to let go of what no longer serves us and inviting in possibility. I take this same philosophy and apply it to business coaching. As an entrepreneur and successful small business owner myself I am keenly aware of what it takes to step into business for ourselves. I work with entrepreneurs and those just contemplating that path. I support my clients by challenging limiting beliefs and inspiring vision. It is important to understand our relationships with work, money, success and ourselves. We need focus and we need flexibility. We need patience and drive. We need passion and parameters. I support my clients in looking at all aspects of business conception, start up and sustainability. In October of 2015 I took the stage for TEDx in MN. I had dreamed of being on that stage. I have been speaking since high school. I do vast amounts of group facilitation and group teaching. Audiences are drawn to my authentic spirit and my willingness to be vulnerable. Particular areas of focus for me include: authenticity & vulnerability, perspectives: what we believe we create, horses and healing, judgment & empathy, self care, boundaries & communication. I also love to tell my story which is highlighted in my TEDx talk. I love that 'aha' moment in people. That spark that initiates change. Nothing makes me more excited to see someone contemplate possibility where they had lost hope. And I love love love story-busting, which is truly one big 'aha' moment. So much of what drives us in life is the stories we tell ourselves . . . 'he doesn't like me', 'everyone will laugh', 'I can't/shouldn't', 'the money will run out', 'I will never make it, 'I am not enough' . . . these are the beliefs that drive our decisions and influence our relationships. It is hard to changes these stories if we don't check them out. That is what story-busting is, checking out the story to see if its true. Sometimes that means we have to look at where those stories came from and sometimes we just need to change our mind. The 'aha' moment comes when we see there is another possibility!
