Motivation Speaker of The Year:
”It doesn’t matter if she is lecturing about leadership, communication or how to make a change, she will touch each and every person in some way. Her passion for people and communication shines through every time she enters the stage. No matter if she is guiding a group through a crisis or hosting an inspiring event, Elizabeth will embrace her audience with her commitment, where she will give them an experience that will last far beyond the lecture itself.”
