Reflection Part 1: ES LIVE 2018


Good evening from Virginia.

I’ve had a couple of weeks now to think about my most recent presentation, Amplify Your Voice Through the Power and Potential of Storytelling,  which I presented at Executive Secretary LIVE in London on March 16.

I was incredibly moved by the attendee reaction at the conclusion—a standing ovation. I’ve been presenting for ten years now and that has never happened in all that time!

More important to me though were the comments made to me after the presentation and throughout the remainder of the conference.  So many attendees told me that they had been moved to tears, caught off-guard by emotions and memories brought to the surface, and happy to have a real opportunity to connect with other attendees through the different session exercises.


For this Presenter|Speaker|Teacher, it was incredibly rewarding to receive that feedback.  I never anticipated the session would have quite the emotional impact that it did.

I’m glad it was a different kind of session for so many. More on this to come as I pull all my thoughts together.  Thank you to all of the attendees for remaining open-minded, engaged,  and courageous.  #KeepLearningKeepGrowing

With gratitude,  Kem
