This engaging former QVC Show Host, news anchor and reporter, and award-winning PR pro is camera ready to captivate your remote/virtual audience. Brenda Viola's outrageous experiences on and off camera inform her memorable sessions. Author of the #1 Amazon New Release in Government Management, The Public Servants' Survival Guide, her ten keys to restore joy in work and life appeal to any audience of busy people.
Need to communicate better? Her "Mastering the Media" class offers practical skills to make the most of any conversation as does "How to be Heard (without Screaming)." Practical tips to empower her audiences to get what's in their heads out of their mouths effectively (and with grace) produce rave reviews and life-changing results.
Unpacking the communication problem led to extensive research on "Why don't we speak up?" The culprit? FEAR. Her "The Fear Factor" class was developed and its companion, "Create Your Life, One Thought at a Time" resulted in hundreds of testimonials from people whose lives have improved as a result of these practical and candid workshops.
Brenda's audiences laugh out loud. She is not shy about telling her own gut-wrenching life stories. In fact, the heartbeat of her story is "My messes are my message" and led to the registered trademarked phrase, "Embrace Your Flawsomeness."
Life is too short to live with regrets. Did you learn something? Then it wasn't a mistake - it's all part of the journey. There's ONE person you are destined to spend the rest of your life with - and it's YOU. So you better start loving yourself, taking care of yourself, and settling in to your own worthiness NOW.
If you have a group that is "Running on Empty" Brenda's Keynote by the same name will help them self-assess and fuel their tanks to go on to improved and happier lives. Is your workplace toxic or in need of a culture boost? ME Seminars has a workshop built to infuse your organization with appreciation.
When you mean BUSINESS about the well being of your team, ME Seminars and Brenda Viola are your go-to source for inspiration, motivation, and practical tools that, when applied, can change a life - or a business - for good.

You're flawed. But you're awesome!
Too often our shortcomings or failures hold us back. This class is designed to help you Embrace Your Flawsomeness and get on with the business of living a happy life.
This program is perfect for any audience member who:
Needs to silence their inner critic
Struggles with perfectionism
Wants to increase self-confidence and sense of self-worth
Seeks to shift from needing external approval to following their internal compass
The audience will leave with an understanding of:
How self-worth is formed
Why perfectionism compensates for a lack of self-confidence
The reality of your inner critic and how to silence its voice
Tools and practices to build self-esteem
Why self-love is paramount to a happy life
A healthy sense of self makes for a more productive and enjoyable workplace. Those who lack self-worth resist coaching (or take it as criticism). They defend and protect their turf rather than collaborating - and constantly need approval and applause to compensate for how badly they really feel about themselves.
Self-worth is an inside job, and those who focus on this valuable core quality will enjoy freedom and success in their personal and professional lives.
