Swagger: Unleash Everything You Are and Become Everything You Want
The ultimate working life dream – to be able to unlock all of our potential and remain true to who we really are. We aspire to collaborate with positivity, connect authentically, lead with inspiration, communicate with confidence, and solve problems fearlessly.
While we may dream of firing on all cylinders, the reality is that too often our most powerful assets remain hidden, stifled or even switched off. Why? Because bringing everything we are to the table requires courage, vulnerability and the seemingly elusive thing called swagger. No, not the old swagger—that show-off, in-your-face, arrogant kind. This brand-new swagger is unshakable, unstoppable and utterly irresistible.
Inspired by her Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Amazon #1 best selling book Swagger, Leslie’s keynote redefines the word and shows audiences how to both unlock and unleash their personal brand of swagger as well as infuse it into their work culture.
Step-by-step, Leslie reveals why ‘fake it ‘til you make it’ does not work, how to break through self-limiting swagger blockers to find true confidence, and liberate our unique superpowers so we can represent, and work with ease, connection, realness and true badassery. As proof that the Swagger process works, Leslie also shares stories of those she’s helped find their swagger and how their lives have changed for the better
For anyone who’s ever felt not good enough, limited in their potential, or thinks that being their messy, vulnerable, human selves could never result in greater success – or those aspiring to creating a more open, more powerful, and BS-free workplace, Swagger opens the door to the kind of self-belief that will change the way we live and work—without ever having to sacrifice who we are.
*Keynotes can be delivered both virtually and in-person.

Leading with Swagger
Do you want to become the kind of accessible, authentic and amazing leader you admire? Discover how to tap into who you really are and bring your swagger to not only modelling, managing and empowering your people and your work culture, but to unleashing the badass potential of your own life.
Swaggering Through Change
Change can shake our confidence, connection and sense of progress. But when we choose to bring our authentic selves to the change party, we can conquer it with all the unique superpowers we possess. Discover what stops us from embracing and stepping into the unknown with absolute self-belief. Learn how to accept the inevitable messiness that progress requires, and how to both unleash your own personal swagger and know exactly how to apply it to the challenges ahead.
Selling with Swagger
The most detrimental element to successful selling is lack of trust, and nothing contributes more to it than inauthenticity. In this keynote, you’ll discover how to tap into everything you really are, discover the authentic superpowers you already possess (but may not know it), and use your newfound swagger to connect meaningfully, purposefully and irresistibly with every prospect or customer.
Why do so many of us leave our best thoughts and ideas off the table? Because we’re afraid that our contributions aren’t good enough and that sharing them isn’t safe or smart – and could actually get in the way of our success! In this keynote, you’ll discover what’s holding back your brand of unique creative swagger and how to build the true confidence necessary to be a creative thinker, innovator and game-changer.
