Finding Your Confidence in the Tech Industry

  • KinderCare National Headquarters 650 Northeast Holladay Street #1400 Portland, OR, 97232 United States (map)

Are you tired of hearing people say that women need to be more confident? Are you DONE being told to speak louder, sell yourself/brand, and fake it till you make it? Aren’t you already confident, (even though sometimes your fight or flight response tries to commit self-sabotage)?

In this presentation, you will define what your authentic confidence on your terms and be able to use that to your advantage. You will also learn how to have mastery over your fight or flight response so you can always show up in your most confident state.

Through stories, how-to’s, and live performances on her Copper Dragon Violin, Allen will walk us through the Own Your A-Game System.

  • Define Your A-Game - Define your authentic confidence on your terms.

  • Refine Your A-Game – Discover how to get out of your own way and come from a place of inspiration.

  • Unleash Your A-Game – Gain mastery over your stress response and be confident outside of your comfort zone.

As a peak performance and leadership speaker, Diane Allen speaks for associations, corporations, and various organizations that rely on high performance and on cultivating leaders throughout all levels.
