Don’t Just Lead…Inspire: A 3-Part Blueprint to Be an Unforgettable Leader
Breakout Session / Keynote Speech
“Be a Sonnet”
There are plenty of ways to lead. We can lead by merely dictating orders; we can lead by example. Christina believes in leading by inspiring—inspiring the way an artfully composed poem does. In her leadership presentation, she uses stories, comedy, and poetry to reveal a simple formula to being a leader who inspires, which means living the three ways a sonnet is formed: See challenges as puzzles to piece together, acknowledge limitations and find ways to be amazing within them, and act boldly and uninhibited by fear.
Speech/workshop attendees will be able to see problems as puzzles and use the “rhyming” method to solve them. They will embrace limitations (such as disabilities and discrimination) with one perception-shifting truth that turns limitations into advantages. They will take action in implementing a 3-step process to be free from the fears that hold us back. And they’ll be able to combine all these methods to be able to lead and inspire like a sonnet!

Before becoming a speaker, Christina Irene had a plethora of jobs, from tobacco farmer and cotton candy maker, to algebra teacher and ad writer. While working as a professional stand-up comic, she traveled to all 50 states. Beyond that, she’s gone on adventures all around the world – by herself – 11 times. Locally, she’s embedded herself in politics, on commissions for education, construction, and sewer. And after the onset of a disability that affects both her body and her mind, Christina is more determined than ever to fearlessly take on the world and her dreams and to teach audiences everywhere how to do the same. Because it’s actually quite simple….
