Michelle customizes each presentation according to the audience and event objectives. Below is the description of some core messages:


Fear Less, Do More
A talk that will change your perception of fear and inspire you to take action.

Michelle’s humorous, refreshing and inspiring speaking style has been captivating audiences across the globe. With authentic storytelling, engaging visuals and her 100 Days Without Fear experience, Michelle will show you how to challenge your comfort zone to tap into your full potential.

In this fun and energizing session, you will learn about:

  • Dealing with the unknown / embracing change
  • Seeking GROWTH over SAFETY
  • Leading with accountability
  • Daring to fail
  • The difference between FEARLESS leaders and BRAVE leaders
  • Highlighting our authenticity
  • The REAL enemy of success (not failure)
  • The difference between universal, cultural and personal fears
  • How to trigger our Behavioral Activation System
  • Redefining fear, from obstacle to opportunity

Michelle uncovered that our needs not only motivate us, but they also limit us. By learning how to prioritize and negotiate with our needs, we open a world of opportunities.


Unapologetically You — Tap into your creative genius and unleash your authentic self
“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.

It’s a boost of confidence that will make people:

  • Bring their most authentic selves to work

  • Suggest more innovative/creative/bold ideas at work

  • OWN who they already are, instead of comparing themselves to others

  • Lead with confidence because they know they are “enough"

  • Sound more genuine and real when pitching, presenting, selling, communicating or participating

  • Promote themselves and their ideas more loudly

  • Stop googling “how to do (EVERYTHING)” so they can find the answers within themselves

  • Act according to their values, and stand up for the things they deeply believe in

  • Overcome the impostor syndrome from the root, by daring to CONTRAST instead of compare

Like everything else Michelle does, this is not just a talk, this is a full EXPERIENCE that will make any audience laugh, reflect, unlearn old concepts, feel empowered, dance – of course, and take action towards a more *unapologetic* way of life.


Hello Future: Grow Through Dirt & Rewrite Your Story
“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.
