What Past Attendees Said

Katie Anderson

While I’m a confident public speaker who has had the honor of keynoting many conferences and events, inspiring leadership teams at their retreats, and empowering teams at all levels to grow their skills and increase their leadership impact — I want to up my game even further.

Thank you to Carol Cox and Diane Diaz of Speaking Your Brand for putting on an amazing retreat full of practice, iteration, and community.

I am so inspired by the amazing women who gathered together. I learned not only from their different speaking styles, but also from their inspiring messages!

If you are wanting to hone your message and move further into your thought leadership (if you are starting out or a seasoned presenter), I highly recommend following Carol’s Speaking Your Brand Podcast.

In addition to my existing popular talks, I’m developing a new keynote - incorporating more storytelling - and I’m thrilled to already be booked to grace the stages of events around the world this year.

—Katie Anderson, Consultant, Author, and Keynote Speaker


To get me over myself (and out of my analysis paralysis), I joined Carol Cox and Diane Diaz of Speaking Your Brand and their amazing group of powerful women in a  retreat to practice, learn and grow.

I learned SOOO much from both Carol and Diane and from each of the women at this event. I got to see such unique speaking styles and more importantly, I got to hear their stories and messages which opened my eyes to so many ways that we can all work together to change the world for good.

This group gave me the safe space to share my own story in a more vulnerable way and even dance in front of a group.

If you want to grow your speaking skills and thought leadership - cannot recommend them enough.

—Betsy Jordyn, Coach, Speaker, and Host of the Enough Already podcast
