Why should you contact me to speak at your event? Public speaking is “where my heart is.” People often attend such an event to gain knowledge and/or to become inspired to take action. I’m a passionate speaker and trainer who provides both. I speak about real topics and behaviors that sometimes affect one's ability to grow or may hold people hostage from becoming who they were born to be. Sometimes, unknowingly, we can get in our own way.
If you want to lead with passion, or help others find their passion, or turn dreams into reality, then I can help you get there. My life-purpose is to provide insightful presentations that empower and equip women and others to unlock their hidden potential and live with purpose and fulfillment – in everything you do personally and professionally. Choose any one of the listed topics in the link below, or I'm happy to work with you to tailor a presentation to meet your needs.
Keynote Speaking Topics
TURNING INSPIRATION INTO ACTION
TURNING INSPIRATION INTO ACTION separates the haves from the have-nots. A spark of motivation and excitement happens for a moment. But being inspired to ACT changes lives forever. When inspired dreams are acted upon, it can become habit forming, build confidence, and create a mindset for successes.
Want to do more, have more, and achieve more?
Have a big dream but lack the motivation to make it happen?
Feel stuck by indecision, procrastination, or fear?
Ready to be inspired to do the things you dream about?
Being inspired to act is not just talk for Pat B. Freeman, it’s a lifestyle. My mom used to always say, Patricia, you can do and be anything you want if you're willing to do the work. Those words stuck and became the inspiration that transformed into a mindset of turning nays into yays and woes into wins! This message will inspire audiences to do the things they've never done before. If you want to stop the talking and start the "Doing," this is the message to do it!!
Big visions require clear steps and strategy. Discover where you are in your quest to achieve big goals and dreams. Using words that start with the letter "D," participants will journey together in a 7-step process that is thought-provoking, engaging, and promotes results.
Ideas are a dime a dozen; metaphorically speaking, it means they are plentiful and everybody has them. But big dreams create a big challenge, cost time, require focused attention, and will take you out of your comfort zone.
This talk is filled with wonder, excitement, anticipation, and discovery as Pat takes the audience on a quest to achieve their Big "D." Anyone who has a Dream, Desire, and the Will to grow can do it. This presentation will help you get there!
