“Julie spoke to members of the Union County Chamber’s small business program on how to finish the year strong and start the following year even stronger. Julie shared a wealth of knowledge with our audience, on everything from sales and marketing to employee engagement. Her “break up” email suggestion was one of the best nuggets of information I have heard from a speaker! The audience left with many actionable items to implement in their business, and I even took notes on ways to implement some of what she taught for the Chamber’s operations.

During her presentation, we experienced some technical malfunctions where Julie’s presentation was lost from the screen for several minutes – but that didn’t phase Julie. If anything, she was able to hold the audience’s attention even more so during that time. I would highly recommend Julie for any speaking engagements relating to business ownership, and we will certainly have her back again to speak in the future.”

Pat Kahle, President & CEO, Union County Chamber (NC)

“Our students enjoy learning from Julie any time we have her speak, whether it is to lead a workshop or be part of a panel discussion. Julie quickly builds rapport with the audience, engages them with easy-to-digest stories and insights, and leaves them wanting more time with her. Her unique presentation style and authentic delivery make an impact, and she has a knack for leaving the audience inspired to take action. We will have Julie back for future speaking opportunities.”

“Julie is an extremely talented speaker with knowledge in a multitude of vital topics. She is incredibly engaging while providing relatable information with actions you can implement right away. The hour presentation went by too fast and I highly recommend her as a great speaker.”

Holly Bazemore, Engagement Manager, NC Association of CPAs

“Julie spoke to Business Sorority, a group of women professionals and business owners, about leadership and the difference between “leading” and “managing”. This was such an insightful distinction! And what really set Julie apart from other speakers were her specific actions and real world examples showing HOW to lead vs. manage. Our participants walked away with tangible pieces of advice they could implement right away in their own businesses. Julie’s no-nonsense, personal speaking style made her one of the best speakers I have booked for Business Sorority over the years. She was amazing!”

LeeAnn Shattuck, Program Director, Business Sorority

“Julie did a great job in our lunch and learn to provide actionable information to our women’s initiative group. She was very relatable and her use of stories made her presentation more tangible. She received excellent evaluations from all attendees and several indicated that they would have wanted more time with her. I highly recommend Julie as a leadership speaker.”

“Julie is a natural speaker; we always get great reviews from the audience any time she speaks. The audience feels connected to her almost immediately, and they walk away motivated to take action on what they learned. Her style is educational, fun, and authentic; her content is packed with real stories and ideas that make her presentations memorable. We will continue to engage with Julie in the future, and look forward to those presentations!”
