"When I first learned about Heather Monahan, I read her book Confidence Creator. What I read was an affirmation of everything I knew about myself but needed to hear out loud. After watching a few videos of Heather, I knew she would be an excellent choice to inspire the members of the Society of Professional Women (SPW) program at The Main Line Chamber of Commerce. Heather was so easy to work with leading up to the event and assisted in marketing the event to her own network. Our event jumped to 50 new registrations in one day from posting one of her videos! On the day of the event Heather commanded the attention of the attendees immediately. She was able to completely engage the audience without a power point presentation with stories from her own life experiences. The audience laughed, gasped, shouted out and listened intently to every word. Heather's ability to connect with people on the stage is undeniable. She created an energy in the room that will inspire others to be more confident in themselves daily. I have received tremendous positive feedback from our members and sponsors of the program as well as new connections that were in attendance. Heather is sincere and authentic, and I would highly recommend bringing her in to speak and uplift others to their full potential. She is truly making a difference in the lives of all who have the pleasure and opportunity to listen to what she has to say.”
“How I would describe Heather Monahan as a Keynote Speaker; she’s a bad @$$, plain and simple. She truly gives off the 'boss in heels' presence. From the moment she stepped on stage, she captured the audience’s attention by sharing her totally relatable story of the high’s and low’s she faced in her professional career. She inspired us all to fight for what we believe in and never settle for anything less than what we deserve. Her witty humor and tell it like it is personality had the crowd laughing and yelling 'Amen!' We received so much amazing feedback on Heather and we are so thankful that she made the trip to Panama City, Florida to speak at the Women’s Work-Life Symposium."

We’re proud to have had her be a part of our event!”
“Heather came to speak at our Love Yourself summit in July 2018 and was fantastic. Her presentation, storytelling, and energy were exactly what we were looking for to kick off our event. But more importantly, her message really resonated with our audience. From leaving her corporate job to fostering resilience to clearing toxic people from her life, Heather's story is one that needs to be told to women everywhere. She truly exemplified the power of confidence and we're so glad we got to see her in action!”

“As part of the committee of the Network of Women at Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., we have been able to bring in great female speakers to the company to empower all of our members and we truly believed Heather would be an amazing addition to the lineup.
