PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

 

Our December 2023 meeting is all about connecting, collaborating, and celebrating our amazing members, and making our exceptional community even stronger than before!  

We will start by conducting three 30-minute ‘Dolphin Tank’ sessions.  In each of the three sessions, one of our members will give a brief description of where they need help in their speaking business, then the group will brainstorm ways for them to jump-start or improve that aspect of their business.  It could be their website, marketing, developing their signature speech, or something else, but this will give them the opportunity to share what they need and draw on the wisdom and support from the NSA St. Louis community.  Not only will this help the person in the Dolphin Tank, the rest of us will also learn from the feedback they receive.

After the Dolphin Tank sessions, three of our newer members will give a 10 to 15-minute talk about themselves and their speaking business so we can get to know them better.  Audience members will also have a chance to ask questions following each presentation.

We will close with lunch, extended networking, and celebrating our community.

We hope you will join us for this special meeting with a focus on greater connections, collaboration, and community – and going into 2024 stronger than ever before!

Lethia Owens: My Personal Game Changer’s Journey

My start in life wasn’t so promising. I was born into poverty to parents with very little education. But with an indomitable spirit, I transformed my life, rising from a dropout in the 9th grade to become a catalyst for change on a global scale. My journey is a testament to the power of determination, unwavering belief, and the profound truth that anyone can be a game changer.

Fueled by an insatiable thirst for knowledge, I spent most of my life studying successful leaders from all walks of life. It was through this relentless pursuit of wisdom that I uncovered a profound realization: the ability to create game-changing impact knows no boundaries of background, skills, or circumstances. Inspired by this revelation, I embarked on a mission to spread this empowering message around the globe.

Drawing from my personal experiences and deep understanding of human potential, I work with organizations who are committed to inspiring and empowering their employees to bring their best to work every day. I am driven by the belief that game- changing actions and achievements are within reach of every individual willing to embrace the necessary mindset and take decisive action has transformed the lives of countless individuals and organizations.

My journey from dropout to game changer epitomizes my unwavering commitment to personal growth and education. Against all odds, I not only obtained my high school diploma but went on to earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a master’s in leadership. Armed with knowledge and an unyielding entrepreneurial spirit, I fearlessly launched four startups, each one marked by innovation, audacity, and unwavering determination.

Today, I run an international multi-million dollar brand that resonates with aspiring game changers worldwide. Clients often call my presence magnetic and describe my speaking style as engaging and inspiring. My goal is to encourage audiences to move beyond their comfort zones and defy limits. With infectious energy and unwavering conviction, I propel individuals and organizations towards transformative action, urging them to embrace their full potential.

Beyond my entrepreneurial pursuits, I am a champion of philanthropy and community engagement. I devote my time and resources to initiatives that empower underprivileged youth, guiding them towards a future full of possibilities. Through scholarships, mentorship programs, and motivational outreach, I am changing the trajectory and game for countless lives.

My work is a true embodiment of resilience and determination, and has shattered barriers and opened doors of opportunity for those willing to listen. My journey serves as an enduring reminder that regardless of the circumstances we are born into, anyone can be a game changer. With unwavering passion, I will continue to empower individuals worldwide, showing them that they, too, possess the power to change the game and make a lasting impact on the world.
