Why you need to lead an extraordinary brand now.

What do you stand for? In this presentation, we look at the evolution of branding and reimagine where it will go. By diving into three relationships, we redefine what makes an extraordinary brand and why you will need one in the age of disruption.

A note from your daughter: Thank you. Now step aside.

In a note to my parents, my country, and my world, I walk through what I’ve learned, what I’m grateful for, and where we can go now. What has been has served its purpose. It's time to step aside and support as your daughters lead.

Once upon a time I was a young artist from north shore Chicago suburbia. A curious creative, I wanted to experience everything... so I became an actor to pretend what it was like to be everyone. But the more I connected to others - their love, pain, fear, and a deep longing to feel something extraordinary… the more I connected to my own love, pain,  fear, and a deep longing to feel something extraordinary.


And so I was inspired to go on a quest to understand what extraordinary really means…


and how to awaken it.
