Speaking Engagements

Engaging, Inspiring, Insightful

North Star Coaching's speaking invitations stretch over three countries and in varying sectors - everything from healthcare to manufacturing to volunteerism.  Leadership is universal.  The challenges of interpersonal communication are universal. 

We align our content to your event's mission and vision by integrating your message in to our entertaining stories.  We drive audiences to take action that will help them slow down to go fast.

Whether the engagement is in-house or at a conference, North Star Coaching instructs and inspires.  We leverage the concept that the answer is in the room.  North Star Coaching's experts create highly interactive, collaborative environments where participants contribute to each other's experiences.  Our expertise stretches the audience's thinking, introduces cutting-edge strategies and challenges the audience to implement best practice.

We want audience members to leave with practical applications to real-life challenges.
