    Corporate Speaker, Business Coach & Author

    Hearing one speaker may not change the course of your event – or it might. I am an expert at helping individuals and organizations leverage new opportunities, navigate change and turn everyday encounters into real results. It starts with how you think and builds on how you connect. My passion is inspiring people to step out of their current habits and into the possibilities that are already surrounding them. I leverage my extensive training and experience in the science of mindset and the art of business connections to provide the one-two punch that gives my clients an advantage over their counterparts and their competition. More than just talking theory, I have real-world experience from being in the trenches and working with clients to manage their own trenches. Yes, I've had triumphs and made mistakes which are important to share to create an authentic connection with audiences. Content is current, relevant and my pre-event process ensures we are focusing on challenges and opportunities specific to your organization and in your industry. Organizing an event is stressful enough so my intention is to be super easy to work with from start to finish. Whether a keynote or breakout session, I create dynamic atmospheres in groups small and large. All options are designed to leave you energized, engaged and ready to take action. No post-session nap required. Packages including a keynote plus breakout sessions and copies of either book are available. MOST REQUESTED TOPICS --- Beyond the Comfort Zone: Mindset, Motivation and Change in the Real World --- Change happens, and in today’s world it’s the only constant. New initiatives, workplace pressures, technology, layoffs or too much to juggle on a professional and personal front can leave you feeling like you’re paddling upstream without a paddle or even a canoe. Before you can create new possibilities, you need to tackle the greatest obstacle you’ll ever face – the four inches between your ears. The good news is that it doesn’t need to be complex or confusing. Drawing on examples and insights from my book, Just Another Leap, this program is designed to: * Take a deep dive into the thinking habits and beliefs that keep people and teams stuck * Teach you how to jumpstart motivation and turn it into engagement for lasting results * Give you the mental tools to push through procrastination and comfort zones to achieve the goals you set * Create new awarenesses that enable you to envision new opportunities in all areas for you and your team * Show you simple strategies to energize yourself and others in the midst of change This program isn't about the soft and fluffy stuff, but instead understanding why people do what they do – this is change management from the inside out. Whether stuck at the first level or experiencing new challenges at that next level, this program is designed to get to the heart of what is holding you back – and then give you the tools to change it. Fast. --- The Networking Shift: How to Stop Wasting Time and Create Real Relationships that Lead to Real Results --- No matter if you are in the public or private sector, it's not about who you know but who knows you. In today's business environment, it's more critical than ever to grow your network of professional and personal connections. But, how many times have you left a networking event or coffee meeting and felt like you just wasted hours your time? It's time to get strategic about creating the valuable relationships you want and the business you never dreamed possible. It's time to shift your efforts from networking to connecting. What makes this program different? Typical networking programs only focus on what to do AT or AFTER at event. Using the unique views and tactics outlined in Your Connecting Advantage this program provides a step-by-step process that shows you how to… * Avoid the most common 'networking' mistakes people make. * Overcome the mental roadblocks that sabotage networking efforts no matter if you are an introvert, extrovert or ambivert. * Shape your message to make you stand out in a sea of vanilla. * Use your mind to ‘see’ connections and resources at events and conferences too. * Clarify the critical words that will help others to easily make strategic connections for you. * Create your own connecting strategy – both offline and online Building your network of key relationships enables you to increase your visibility, influence and remain top of mind. Whether you're a wallflower or a seasoned connector, you'll gain new insight into creating your connecting advantage! CLIENTS KUDOS: (just one here but never fear, there's a lot more) "I recently hired Joyce as a speaker for a Global Partner Summit I was chairing. In our conversations leading up to the event, I explained that the participants were in the Mobility industry, some were direct competitors, they represented many different sub-industries, the attendees were from around the globe and she needed to deliver a message that would resonate with everyone. She came in to our event a day early, intermingled with the attendees, learned a bit more about who we are and then hit a home run in the delivery of her message! Great message, great delivery, great reviews. You can't ask for more than that!" ~Al Blumenberg, NEI Global Relocation CLIENTS INCLUDE: The National Association of College Stores, First Marblehead, Houlihan's, American Humanics, NEI Global Relocation, Houlihan's, PMI South Florida Chapter, ASCA Executive Summit and MASFAP ** Thumbtack has me traveling 150 miles but I work with clients across the country.

    With more than 25 years of experience in marketing, merchandising and sales, I help clients like you cut through social media chatter. I make it my business as a social media marketing expert and trainer to find what works for you. Whether as a keynote speaker, corporate trainer or professional business coach, I teach you how to do the following: * Create brand awareness through social media posts * Connect with current customers online * Collect leads for target prospects * Communicate in ways that encourage engagement * Consistently post in only 15 minutes a day * Convert likes, follows and shares into real revenue If you are in a regulated industry, I understand the B2C world and previously held licenses with securities series: 6, 63 and 26 as well as insurance and mortgage licenses. Let me help you and your team successfully wade through industry-specific rules and regulations and at the same time teach you to leverage social media for professional success. From basic how-to sessions to overall social media and conventional marketing planning and strategy building, I deliver it all. I cover Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, and Google+. If you need a speaker or workshop facilitator, you found me. My expertise is taking the complex world of social media and simplifying it to eliminate overwhelming you. I am a teacher at heart, so when a client has a lightbulb moment or starts to see success from his/her efforts, it energizes me. A client’s success is my success. I work with a variety of industries and organizations. As mentioned above, I have an expertise with compliance/regulated industries. I coach and train entrepreneurs, authors, coaches, small to large businesses, independent service professionals, sales teams, organizational leaders and membership organizations. My clients tell me they learn more from me in a 1-hour training session than in weeks of corporate-sponsored seminars.

  • Corporate Speaker, Business Coach & Author

    Connecting you to people, possibilities and profits. If I told you I deliver information through keynote speaking, professional development training and business coaching (along with publishing two books), you might put me into the typical buckets, but clients will tell you that the work I do is far from typical. My passion is inspiring people to step out of their current habits and into new opportunities that are already surrounding them. I leverage my extensive experience in the science of mindset and the art of business connections to help my clients create an advantage over their counterparts and their competition. Since 2008 I have helped individuals achieve higher levels of performance, and companies to discover new opportunities for success. My clients include businesses of all sizes and their executives, individuals, and associations in a variety of industries. Even with that, I don’t believe that one size fits all….for anything. What is the specific challenge you are dealing with or the goals you are looking to tackle? There are three ways to work together: ● CUSTOMIZED TRAINING Goals, challenges, and opportunities do not come in a one-size-fits-all package. I create dynamic atmospheres in groups small and large, from company departments to leadership teams and national associations. Through custom-designed, on-site workshops and discussions, we get to the heart of the issues and design immediate action plans. These sessions will leave you energized, engaged and ready to take action. ● COACHING Are currently leading a team, in business development, career transition, or pursuing the solopreneur route? That is where an outside perspective can help you gain the clarity you need to produce amazing results quickly and effectively. Whether it is differentiating you from your competition or creating profitable strategic relationships, I will help you focus on the main issues, eliminate distractions and hold you accountable to reach your goals. Yes, we get in the weeds together. If business development is your focus, then the Connecting Advantage Program may be just what you need. ● KEYNOTES AND BREAKOUT SESSIONS With over nine years experience as keynote and breakout session speaker, my programs are known for a-ha moments, highlights of humor and tactical takeaways. More than motivation, my customized approach and message leave audiences with insights and practical strategies they can immediately apply. Speaking topics are customized to focus on the critical needs of every audience with a tailored message that addresses their pain points and their amazing (but often hidden) opportunities. MOST REQUESTED TOPICS INCLUDE..... THE POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE We all have incredible potential but the difference between good and great is directly related to how you think. Change happens, and in today’s world, it’s the only constant. New initiatives, day to day pressures, technology or too much to juggle on a professional and personal front can leave you feeling stressed out and overwhelmed. Before you can create new possibilities and tackle bolder goals, you need to overcome the greatest obstacle you’ll ever face – the four inches between your ears. The good news is that it doesn’t need to be complex or confusing. This program is based on the universal principals of performance mindset. It isn’t about the soft and fluffy stuff but instead helping people understand how their thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs impact their actions and outcomes. The result is helping individuals achieve higher levels of performance in all aspects of their life, and companies discover new opportunities for growth. Whether stuck at the first level or experiencing new challenges at that next level, this interactive program combines real-world examples, tidbits of science and easy to apply concepts to help you manage your mindset, shift from motivation to engagement and empower you to thrive through change. YOUR CONNECTING ADVANTAGE Ask any senior executive, community leader or successful salesperson which single skill or habit helped them excel in their career – an overwhelming majority will respond with one simple word…networking. The expertise, ideas, and introductions that other people provide can make all the difference to your personal and collective success. All of the resources you need are, with networking, are at your disposal to help you achieve your goals. But, how many times have you left a networking event or coffee meeting and felt like you just wasted hours your time? I can teach you, your team how to truly connect and make your interactions have a greater impact. This process can be learned and leveraged by anyone who wants to successfully navigate the corporate ladder, uses sales to drive their business or expand their market presence. Attendees will walk away with a strategy to position their personal brand, increase influence and build lasting relationships. In case you’re wondering what sets the following topics apart? Typical networking programs only focus on what to do AT or AFTER an event or conference (business cards galore!). Using the unique views and tactics outlined in Your Connecting Advantage, attendees will learn a step-by-step process to connect with intention, create meaningful relationships and powerful results. You have 4 program options to choose from: ► Creating a Connecting Advantage ► Corporate Connecting ► Networking for Business Growth ► Your Social Capital DELIVERY: My most requested topics are available as keynote talks, breakout sessions, webinars, 1/2 day private workshops and full-day intensives. Which one is best for your organization or event? What I enjoy about speaking is watching the 'light bulb moments' happen in the audience when they connect to the information I've shared. The thing I like most is having an audience member contact me to share how the strategies and tactics shared impacted their business and life.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Sylvia Hall | Life Coaching & Mindset Training

(3 reviews)

I've always known I wanted to work for myself. For the first five years of my "at home mom" career, I made jewellery. However, I realized I wanted to be more connected with people and use my BEST gifts to serve people, not just my "pretty good" skills of making jewellery.

This desire pushed Sylvia Hall to venture into life coaching and now as a certified life coach, she continues to touch the lives of clients through her services. She provides speaking engagements and workshops for individuals and companies through engaging presentations and activities.

When I am working with clients, either through a speaking engagement/workshop or a one-on-one coaching experience, I give them Every. Single. Thing. I have to offer at that moment. There is nothing more important than giving them the best of what I have to offer.

Sylvia reveals that she believes that this is her calling, and the satisfaction she gets every time she leaves a conference end a coaching call or wrap up a workshop validates this. This also drives her to do more and provide more services. This for her is her greatest project.

When you are really ready to experience change, whether individually, or within your business or organization, then better book with Sylvia Hall and see the change.
