“Tapping into the white space” is an industry term often used in advertising and branding. The white space is the future waiting to take shape. It’s untapped territory. It’s what no one else is doing—either because they’re too worried about fitting in, or because they’d rather play it safe and stick to what’s proven. New territories call for courage and authenticity. But marketers aren’t the only ones who can tap into the white space – anyone can.  Michelle takes audiences on an eye-opening journey to discover their own authenticity and how to use their gifts to drive innovation, for themselves and their organizations. Using real-world examples from her own adventure as a branding strategist turned successful speaker, author, and entrepreneur, she shows us all that you don’t necessarily need to face 100 fears, in order to become more pioneering. Attendees will walk away with several aha moments, renewed confidence in their personal creativity, and a blueprint to infuse more innovation into their work and lives.


Learning Objectives:


• Look beyond the obvious to find “white spaces” and areas for growth


• Understand what makes you remarkable to clarify the values and tone of your personal brand


• Align how you feel with how your act to strengthen authenticity


• Contrast instead of comparing yourself to others or the status quo


• Use storytelling to authentically communicate your message


“Throw dirt at me and watch me bloom.” — Frida Kahlo


Just like flowers grow through dirt, humans grow through challenges. But growth is a choice. We can choose to water ourselves and bloom, or become the victims of our story and dry out. In this talk, Michelle will inspire your audience to:


• Embrace and even welcome change


• Turn obstacles into opportunities


• Go from anxiety to action


• Find purpose in the midst of chaos


• Rewrite their story and become their own hero


Through personal storytelling, insightful exercises, and actionable tools, Michelle will lead your audience on a journey through resilience and re-invention, that will change their mindset and build their confidence to land stronger on the other side of this health and economic crisis we’re all living through.
