ON SPEAKING
Michelle StacyLeadership is tough work, and so I encourage people to think about that line that explains why they come to work and what they get from their work.

CORE Agency What do you want people to learn/take away from your presentations?

Michelle Stacy
I try to give people 4-5 tips to help them become better leaders. A few of these center on listening for greatness, being aware of how we show up, and motivating the middle. Usually I talk about building your own personal leadership statement. We all have our 2-minute elevator speech about what we do; this defines what we do, but not who we are. Leadership is tough work, and so I encourage people to think about that line that explains why they come to work and what they get from their work.

CORE Agency What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event?
How do you prepare for your speaking engagements?

Michelle Stacy
I always like to meet with the organizers to understand what they want the group to get from my presentation. Then I can tailor the speech and slides to match the outcome they are looking for. I always make sure I give the organizers some options on the topics they want me to cover to make sure the message fits their culture.

CORE Agency Have you had any particularly memorable speaking engagements / unusual situations arise while on the road?

Michelle Stacy
I have been very lucky and haven't had any unusual situations happen on the road. I always leave lots of room, particularly in the winter, to make sure I arrive on time. This helps me keep my stress level low.

My son recently engaged me to come speak at an event for his work. My husband decided to come with me and make it a weekend visit with my son. I couldn't understand why I was more nervous than usual. And then it hit me: I just knew that if anything went wrong, it would be the story at many a family gathering for years to come. Luckily they were both proud of me and I haven't heard any stories or been teased yet!

If a group believes in continuous learning, I believe they will take away something from my talk.

CORE Agency What types of audiences would most benefit from your message?

Michelle Stacy
I have spoken to all different sorts of groups from Banking and IT to Consumer Products. Also I have spoken at Leadership Development Conferences and Universities. I try to tailor the message to the group. If a group believes in continuous learning, I believe they will take away something from my talk. And I have to say, I truly enjoy speaking with women's groups about building careers and work life balance.

CORE Agency Which of your keynote speaking topics are your favorites?

Michelle Stacy
I am not sure I have a favorite…They are all a bit different. Innovation is such a relevant topic currently. This talk is a bit more business focused and has a bit less humor. Leadership is so important, too. I love the message and the fact that this side of leadership - authentic and transparent - is so needed in business. These two talks combine the head part of business - getting results and the heart side of business - creating a great culture through leadership.

Finally, speaking on career and work life balance is personal and it shares a part of me and my values. It’s very funny - a few weeks ago, a client couldn't figure out which talk they wanted me to give so they asked me to try to package all three into a single one hour talk. It still needs a bit more refinement, but it did work so that might become my favorite keynote!

I feel I have a few messages that are worth sharing. In some ways, it's my way to give back at this stage in my life.

CORE Agency What inspired you to start doing speaking engagements?

Michelle Stacy
I feel I have a few messages that are worth sharing. In some ways, it's my way to give back at this stage in my life. I was a good business speaker; I did have to learn how to bring in the humor and entertainment side of speaking while staying true to my business roots.

CORE Agency How do you keep your audience engaged and actively listening during your keynotes? Do you use case studies, personal stories and/or in your speeches?

Michelle Stacy
Each keynote is a bit different. The Innovation Keynote has two or three case studies depending on the time. Between them I try to close with a few fun stories. The Leadership and Career talks have many stories that have come from my personal experiences.
