It all starts with loving your self.
When I came out as a woman at the age of 55 people told me I was courageous .
But they didn’t know about the moments that took real courage.
Loving yourself is hard work.
It’s about facing the stuff you don’t want to face.
Fifty years of hiding told me a lot about avoiding-mechanisms.
EVERYONE has them, so cleverly invisible.
You can only find your own mechanisms
if you learn to love them.
Then you can change,
change from within.
My talk can do this for your audience.
(PS Highly sensitive audiences will profit exponential from this talk)
What people say:
what is extremely powerful is the pendulum between the witty jokes and extreme vulnerability. An additional hook for me – the science part.
What you said about the moment of courage really got stuck and is not only true – it is a piece of wisdom!
I LOVED your talk. The story is incredible and I was truly moved!!! You changed my life!
You are one of the coolest women I know

Your speach is one of the kind that will resonate in me for a long time. Just so so touching, hilarious and deeply human, with a philosophical touch – a combination that I always find smashing! And I love your unapologetically authentic you.
What a strong story. What a strong person
Your speech was absolutely amazing! It made me think, laugh and put tears in my eyes – the full range of emotions. I could have listened to you much longer.
