Liz Brunner Speaker Biography

Liz Brunner is a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) and the CEO and founder of Brunner Communications and best-selling author of Dare to Own You: Taking Your Authenticity and Dreams Into Your Next Chapter, recommended on Forbes. Leveraging more than 35 years of media and communications experience, expertise, and leadership, Brunner is sought by high-profile individuals and organizations to build meaningful reputations and powerful brand identities within their markets. She is also a frequent speaker at corporate conventions, including Stifel, the Barron’s Women Summit, the CoreNet Global Summit, as well as numerous colleges and universities.

In February 2020, Liz launched her podcast, "Live Your Best Life with Liz Brunner," where guests share their stories of re-creation, transformation and how they have created their “next chapters” inspiring others to live their best, most authentic lives as well. In 2022, Liz’s podcast won multiple awards for “Best Host” and “Best Lifestyle Podcast” by the Communicator Awards.

In 2020, Liz founded the Brunner Academy of online learning, providing access to high quality speaker training. Her flagship public speaking course, “How to be a Rock Star Public Speaker," is receiving high praise: “Liz Brunner is one of the top professional speakers in the world… and one of the best teachers of speaking in the world.” – Brian Tracy, International Speaker, best-selling author and consultant

In 2023, Liz's highly acclaimed book, Dare To Own You, placed in the Silver/ 2nd Place category for "Self-Help" of the annual Feathered Quill Book Awards and was also a Finalist in the category of "memoir/ biography." It is available on Amazon and Audible and at Barnes & Noble.

Prior to launching Brunner Communications in 2013, Brunner served as a main news anchor and reporter at ABC-TV, WCVB NewsCenter 5 in Boston. During her tenure, Brunner co-anchored the #1 rated 6pm newscast and covered countless breaking news stories. She conducted exclusive one-on-one interviews with prominent figures ranging from professional athletes to global political leaders including President Barack Obama. Recognized as one of the nation’s most accomplished journalists, Brunner’s distinguished approach of educating and communicating information to viewers has yielded countless industry awards and earned her a devoted following.

Among Brunner’s industry recognitions are multiple New England Emmy Awards, two national Gracies from the Alliance for Women in Media, an Edward R. Murrow Award, an Associated Press Award, and a Communications Achievement Award from the American Women in Radio and Television.

Brunner has served on the Board of Directors for Make a Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island. She is a member of the Boston Chamber of Commerce’s Women’s Network Advisory Board, and was inducted into the 2017 class of the Boston YWCA’s Academy of Women Achievers. Speaking frequently at philanthropic events, Brunner’s engagement in the community has been instrumental to the success of deserving nonprofit organizations. In addition to keynote speaking engagements, Brunner continues to make TV and radio appearances as well.

A classically trained vocal performer and former high school music educator, Brunner holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music. Brunner has performed with the Boston Pops and at professional sporting events, among others.

Each and every person, no matter what profession or industry, needs to exude confidence, “executive presence,” and communicate effectively in all relationships in order to “seal the deal.” Liz Brunner shares her practical and proven communication tips, storytelling techniques and innovative "Brunner Method" for practicing that can be implemented immediately that will energize anyone to connect more authentically with customers, clients and colleagues in a way that resonates, engages and gets results.*

With so much uncertainty in the world, leaders face multiple challenges and complexities requiring a renewed focus on what makes an effective leader today. Companies need to develop new leaders and empower them to be successful in the future. However, simply giving someone the responsibilities or title of a leader doesn’t necessarily make a person an effective nor influential leader. No one is born knowing how to be a leader. We learn how to be a leader. As a sought after authentic leader and keynote speaker, Liz Brunner offers an approach that will inspire audience members to unleash their leader within.*

Your voice is an instrument. It’s the one instrument we all play, but just because you have a voice and can speak, does not necessarily mean you are using it in a way to ensure you are being seen and heard as you intend. Each of us must find our authentic voice. As a former semi-professional singer, award-winning news anchor and executive communications coach, Liz Brunner provides actionable tools of how to find and use your authentic voice, the language required to command respect, and to be seen and heard as you intend.*

What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail? What would any of us do if we didn’t allow fear to stop us? Too often we don’t take the risk of stepping out of our comfort zone to create our next chapter. And, even if we want to, we don’t know how or where to turn. Liz Brunner’s inspirational career journey from music teacher in the high school classroom, to her Emmy award-winning career in the television newsroom and on the anchor desk, to being an entrepreneur, Executive Communications Coach working with other CEOs in the boardroom, will motivate you to discover what themes and patterns exist in your own journey. No knowledge is ever wasted. No experience is ever wasted. You know more than you think you know. Liz’s motivational message will guide you to connect the dots of your own experiences to create your next chapter.

Congratulations! You’ve done it. You visualized your dreams into reality. But now what? Where do you go from here? You may even be asking yourself, “Is that all there is? Have I really achieved ‘success’ or is there more? And, what is ‘success?” How do I define it for myself?’” Sustaining success does not happen by accident. It’s about “evolving.” Evolving through the tough times, handling the curveballs that life will throw at you. It takes resilience, developing an inner strength to meet those challenges head-on and to persevere. Having journeyed through four successful, at times challenging career chapters—High School music teacher, to retail, to award-winning TV news anchor to entrepreneur—Liz Brunner knows what it takes to be resilient, to persevere and she can help you not only define success for you, find your "mojo" if you've lost it, and tangible tactics and practices to intentionally sustain success.

Networking is essential to advancing your career -- “it’s not what you know, but WHO you know,” but for many people, whether extrovert or introvert, networking can feel like many of the same pitfalls as dating! All those awkward conversations. Liz Brunner delivers her creative, customized “Pre-Game, Game-Time, and Post-Game” approach to networking with practical tips and techniques that can easily and immediately be implemented.*

Two questions have been asked over and over again by generations; “What is my passion?” And, “What is my purpose?” Passion and purpose are inextricably linked, but figuring out either requires one to get out of their comfort zone, and that is not always easy! In this highly motivational speech, Liz Brunner offers guidance on how to discover your own passion and purpose, and how to break patterns that may be holding you back from following your destiny and living your best life.
