Talking Points

The Power of You

People underestimate what they are capable of doing. They’re raised not to believe in their capabilities, which is shaped and reinforced by those around them, their circumstances and society’s way of supressing ambition. They lack self-belief and are afraid of being a tall poppy so they try to fit into a mould that is expected of them.

This talk is about making a choice to be brave, to reveal what you really want to be or do, and then the negotiations you need to make to be that person-even when those negotiations are frequently with yourself! Anne helps audiences understand the unlimited power of what each of us can do and achieve.

The Game Plan

Entrepreneurs often overcomplicate the journey. They operate in chaos and only see the big picture, failing to realise the power in the detail. In this talk, seasoned veteran and serial entrepreneur Anne McKevitt shows audiences there is a smarter way, one that is leagues apart from traditional business practices. It is about being better, doing better and creating better results. She shares her critical Game Plan, the sequential success methodology every business owner needs to reach the finish line with less hard work and less stress. When applied, the outlined principles create exponential results.

SheSuccess - Confidence

Although it is widely accepted the gender gap must close, we’re a long way from that goal. In this talk, Anne McKevitt focuses on the one thing that holds many women back - lack of confidence. Anne identifies why women are frequently filled with self-doubt, struggle with fear and all too often suffer from imposter syndrome. Anne will share her formula to conquer insecurities, eliminate anxieties and build confidence to overcome all disadvantages and fulfill potential.
