The audience loved the no-slides delivery . Awesome! But what we enjoyed the most is your personality, humor and how you completely, seamlessly interacted with our audience. It was a tough time slot as our audience was tired from travel. You kept them completely engaged, entertained and still delivered many powerful key messages! – Flight Centre Travel
Connie Podesta was a ‘20’ out of ‘10’ as our recent keynote speaker for the annual meeting. Our team is still raving about her session and quoting portions of her presentation to each other. You can’t ask for more than that from an investment in a truly great presenter.” – Corium
Is your team ready to dig deeper, laugh harder, explore new mindsets, change a few attitudes and gain more insight in themselves and others than ever before? Then you’ve come to the right place. You will know you’re in good hands from the moment Connie walks on stage. Not your typical “rah-rah, quick-fix” motivational speakers, Connie is all about LONG-TERM RESULTS—for YOU and YOUR FRANCHISE!
Bottom line: If there was ever a time to differentiate your franchise and STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD, it is NOW! In today’s world, where change happens at the click of a mouse, franchise audiences want (and need) more than a “motivational” speaker. They need the strategies, mindsets and solutions that will empower them to tackle our crazy 24/7 world so they can: Increase sales. Attract more customers. Be better leaders. Manage change. Optimize productivity. Accept accountability. Communicate more effectively. Stay healthy. Enjoy life more along the way. And….experience more success than they ever thought possible.
No wonder you made it into our Hall of Fame Speakers. You were a hit—time after time! – RE/MAX
With a rare blend of laugh out-loud comedy and tell-it-like-it-is delivery, Connie delivers powerhouse strategies that will increase your profits, sales, customer base and good will!

Sending our appreciation for such an awesome presentation at our Store Manager’s Leadership Meeting. With close to 2,000 people in attendance, you struck an amazing balance between motivating and energizing the team and still managing to educate and equip them as well. Your presentation was clearly one of the highlights the entire week for our group! We’re now two weeks since the conclusion of the meeting and we’re still getting great feedback! Your contributions go well beyond that of the typical presenter or speaker at a conference. We appreciate you and the momentum you’ve helped us generate as we go into our peak selling season – we expect to see the impact in sales and profit at the end of the year! — Michaels
