Senior Managing Director,
“Both Kristen and I would like to thank you once again for delivering such an amazing session for UBS’s Women’s Leadership Conference. The way in which you were able to move the audience emotionally clearly demonstrated how powerful your message was to everyone. It was really inspiring to see the audience feel such a sense of empowerment; proud of who they were and the brand they own, after you challenged everyone to complete that now famous statement, ‘My name is---_______ and I am the one who_____.’ This was a wonderful experience for us all.”

“The program you put together for us was brilliant. Engaging, challenging, intelligent, and
because of all that, inspiring. I have never attended a leadership or developmental program that was at the same time so smart, substantive and adult, on the one hand, and so entertaining (so much fun) on the other. Though most of us were strangers until Wednesday – and a bit run down emotionally to boot – you made us feel like a group of 16 year olds with the world at our feet, around a campfire together or in that best English class you never forget from junior high, when everything and anything seemed possible. (How did you do that!) What will also stay with me from the 2 days is the depth, substance, wisdom and heart of my women colleagues.”
Office of the General Council,
Gail Blanke’s promise to her motivational workshop participants is that they will emerge from her workshop with a renewed sense of purpose, a vision of what "good" looks like, a determination to let go of anything that holds them back, and a solid plan to bring their vision to life. The theme “How good could you make it?” runs through all of Blanke’s workshops and keynotes.
Her personal development and leadership workshops are customized to meet the needs of the audience, but always include the following “six-and-a-half steps”:
1. Tap into the incredible power of a vision
2. Let go
3. Make a list of the “defining moments” in your life and your work
4. Adopt an entrepreneurial spirit
5. Develop your own personal brand
6. Learn to distinguish between “fact and interpretation” in your life and your work
6.5. Find your song and sing it
Her most widely requested speech topics include:
Throw Out Fifty Things: Let Go of Your Clutter and Grab Hold of Your Life
"Our lives are so filled with junk from the past-from dried up tubes of glue to old grudges-that it′s a wonder we can get up in the morning," exclaims motivator, best-selling author, columnist, and life coach Gail Blanke.
"If you want to grow, you gotta let go," is Blanke′s mantra; and that means eliminating all the clutter-physical and emotional-that holds you back, weighs you down, or just makes you feel bad about yourself.
In THROW OUT FIFTY THINGS she takes us through each room of the house-from the attic to the garage-and even to the far reaches of our minds. Through poignant and humorous stories, she inspires us to get rid of the "life plaque" we′ve allowed to build-up there.
- That junk drawer (you know that drawer) in the kitchen? Empty it!
- Those old regrets? Throw ′em out!
- That make-up from your "old" look? Toss it!
- That relationship that depresses you? Dump it!
Once you′ve hit fifty-you′ll be surprised how easy it is to get there-and once you′ve thrown out that too-tight belt and too-small view of yourself, you′ll be ready to step out into the clearing and into the next, and greatest, segment of your life.
