About the Talk: Get Lit! 4 Steps To Discovering Your Brilliance

When you meet someone who is truly authentic, you also know you can be yourself around them. It feels like a breath of fresh air – and also a little intimidating. The best part? You don’t have to wonder where you stand with them because they know where they stand.

What if we all showed up as ourselves – without wondering who wouldn’t like us or what they might say? It would be life-changing. Magical, even. Yet most people don’t know who they really are. Why? Two reasons: Others might find out they’re actually an imposter OR they doubt others could handle how incredible they truly are.

In this keynote, Melanie Spring gives us permission to be ourselves all the time in every situation. She’ll help us define the personal brand we already carry with us, get clear on how to speak our truth to everyone around us all the time, and find the courage to stand with full confidence in our truth.

She’ll share stories of her own path to becoming unfiltered and unapologetic while giving us the tools to keep growing no matter what life throws at us.

When we’re done, you’ll have:

  • A new way of looking at your life and work
  • A clearer picture of your own personal brand and how to share it with others
  • The courage to speak unapologetically in all areas of your life
  • The confidence to share your full self with others no matter what

Are you ready to get lit?
