Molly was hands down one of the most popular speakers at our recent leadership conference. Her energy and real-life anecdotes that come from nearly two decades of representing professional athletes and others from the world of sports kept us all totally enthralled. Her talk is entertaining and so much more as she shares her real-life experiences while at the same time deconstructing a recipe for success. Molly offers a great presentation for any leader seeking to up their game.
Molly’s keynote message really hit the bullseye at our annual sales conference. Never in the 28 year history had a keynote speaker scored greater than an overall 90+ rating on our participant survey – until now. Molly inspired and engaged our sales teams to “Unleash Their Potential” in a way each participant could relate with. It is safe to say – Valpak will see her again in the very near future!!
