Valerie Sheppard is a brilliant speaker...

Valerie Sheppard is a brilliant speaker who lights up the room with insight, intelligence and genuine guidance. She educates and elevates her audiences in success principles that motivate and inspire action. It has been my distinctive pleasure to welcome Valerie to our Amazing Woman’s Day stages on multiple occasions with plans to invite her back time and time again. I highly recommend that anyone looking for a dynamic presence for your event, keynote program or symposium do the same!
