Nina Sossamon-Pogue Speaker Biography

Nina Sossamon-Pogue is an expert on resilience and an engaging entertainer who empowers audiences uncertain about change.

Using her own gripping story and the word THIS to represent adversity of all sizes, she takes audiences to the intersection of personal and professional resilience, then empowers them to stay the course and take control of their life story.

A best-selling author, speaker, and podcast host, she gives individuals and organizations the tools to handle challenges and change. Audiences are motivated to not just survive - but to thrive and find new levels of success when things change.

Nina expertly blends big data, current events, and brain science research, into an energetic multi-media stage performance, or virtual presentation, to help organizations strengthen their workforce. Nina’s expertise is built upon her experience as a Communications Vice President in a hyper-growth technology company, an Emmy-award-winning television news anchor and world-class gymnast on the USA Gymnastics team.

Highlights include:

Aha moments! – sharing big data insights about our workforce, Nina allows the audience to figure out how their own strengths play a role in their success.

Proprietary Practical Framework – a self-proclaimed research geek, Nina pulls from leading resources including Forbes, Harvard Business Review and Psychology Today. This data sets the stage for her resilience framework that empowers her audience to go from adversity to achievement at all levels.

Post Pandemic Powers:
Resilience Is Not a Destination
We Were All Asked to Be More Resilient - Now What? Where does the pandemic fit into our stories and how did it change us all?

We All Became More 'Resilient' - Now it’s time to use that new strength for Future Success! Nina shares how we all adjusted, adapted and became more resilient, then, uses big data, analogies and stories to empower audiences with strategies to use their new superpowers in the future.

Nina’s POST PANDEMIC POWERS message is inspiring, empowering and personalized for each audience. It has been a hit in person and virtually. (if your workforce is adverse to returning to the office – Nina has a version of this message that can help them see the long term gains of staying the course)

THIS is ‘Resilience’
A proven approach to strengthen resilience and succeed at the highest levels
Every organization faces challenges and today’s pace of change is staggering. Diversity of all sizes is sidetracking our workforce each day. Think personal medical issues, difficult customers, or product failures. Data shows our workforce is struggling and a lack of resilience can eat away at shareholder value, yet most organizations are not even aware of it. Nina shares a deliberate framework corporations can use to stop losing billions of dollars in lost productivity, low engagement and sinking morale.

Nina shares a proven framework to conquer adversity and teaches you how to overcome challenges, of all sizes. This knowledge allows you gain strength from each obstacle, on your way to success.
