Over the past two years, millions of leaders in the U.S. and worldwide have felt the cumulative impact of the global pandemic, disruption of the “normal routine” of business, a disconcerting increase in intolerance and political polarization, and an uprising of repressed individuals no longer willing to remain complacent. As a result, transformational speaker, Simply, offers audiences -- in a bold “wake-up” call that is as unique as his name – now is the time for radical transformation, empowerment and awakening to one’s most authentic self. In fact, audiences will learn that authenticity is nothing less than the gateway to true freedom.


Simply Speaks’ powerful and empowering keynote presentation, “Statistically Speaking: I’m not supposed to be here” awakens and empowers audiences through expanded knowledge and new language – and boldly takes them to a new level of self-understanding and appreciation of the fact that every individual is unique and extraordinary. This keynote reminds business leaders of all levels, the power of creating an inclusive workplace that is safe and supportive of every member of the team or organization, stressing that this is not only morally right but is also the only way to bring out the best for employees and customers.


Simply Speaks – whose pronouns are He/They – offers a keynote that is engaging, timely and uniquely unforgettable, opening their eyes to the awareness that tapping into our instinct and intuition is ultimately the only way we can each navigate and fulfill our unique “life assignment contract.”


In this remarkable keynote, audiences will encounter a powerhouse individual, embodying what it means to boldly stand in power. Simply recounts numerous challenges faced over the years -- enduring physical abuse while in foster care, experiencing domestic violence in a same sex union, and rising above addictions and homelessness. In 2003, Simply Speaks began a lifelong journey of self-healing in pursuit of a career as a transformational speaker,


This inspiring message of breaking free the past can be heard in every keynote message of “Statistically Speaking: I’m not supposed to be here.” Unflinchingly, Simply Speaks takes a raw and bold approach to ignite corporate leaders to honor their life’s purpose and those that they lead, by exposing the various obstacles that prevent them from achieving their wildest dreams.
