Not surprisingly, as a former stage actor, I love to speak.
I currently offer presentations (that can be tailored for your group) on the following "How to" topics:
- Manage Stress
- Become More Resilient,
- Make Big Decisions, and
- Navigate Transitions.
I lead hands-on presentations that people leave with concrete personal takeaways.
Recent speaking highlights:
- I led a 3-hour "Academy" called "Ditch Analysis Paralysis: How to Make Any Decision Confidently" for 100 people at the World Domination Summit in Portland. (June 2019)
- I returned to 1871, Chicago's world-famous tech incubator, for the third time, to lead "Bounce Back from Setbacks: How to Become a Resilient Entrepreneur." (August 2019)
Chicago Ideas Week is one of my favorite annual events.
This year, I'll be leading a 2.5 hour workshop on "How to Answer Life's Big Questions." (October 12th, from 10am-12:30pm, at The Gray Hotel in the Chicago Loop)
Tickets go on sale to the public on September 10th and will sell out.
UPDATE: Tickets to my Chicago Ideas Week workshop sold out within the first hour. Additional tickets were released - and it's now sold out again.

"I decided to take the "Bounce Back from Setbacks" workshop because I'm currently working through some career changes as well as organizational changes within my company and was looking for a way to view those changes in a more positive way. Before the workshop, I was anxious and stressed about everything I had to tackle but afterward, I felt that the challenges I saw as impossible mountains were really just molehills with hidden opportunity. Sheila worked through ways of reframing our emotions around obstacles and proactive steps to take when faced with a setback. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking to alleviate stress and take charge of their emotions."
