When students are met with opportunities to travel abroad, they too often don’t understand how travel skills can translate into leadership skills that employers desire. In this talk, Candace illustrates how travel has helped her enhance important leadership skills in the workplace and how it can do the same for those who have traveled abroad.
Through delightful storytelling, she recounts how driving on the other side of the road forced her to be adaptable, how a tuk tuk driver raised her consciousness around collaboration and much more. Through this talk, the audience will be able to identify important leadership skills employers value, recognize how to connect the dots between travel and leadership skills, and understand their role in telling the most impactful stories about their travel experiences.
Candace is a phenomenal and inspiring speaker! Her energy and bright spirit combined with her warmth and fearlessness have helped me find the courage to share my own voice and story. Since hearing her speak, I have learned how to ‘cross the bridge’ and use fear to launch me into a life of greater purpose and fulfillment.
Candace is a wonderful speaker who motivated our freshman class to set their high school years out on the right path. Candace was engaging and relatable, which is important in holding the attention of high schoolers. Our students walked away from Candace’s speech feeling inspired to make the most out of their freshman year.
Candace was one of our top speakers during her time with Making It Count. I had the opportunity to work with her as a trainer and a colleague. She is a very articulate and confident speaker who has the ability to capture audiences of all sizes.
The best graduation speaker in years! Candace held the students’ attention from start to finish. She provided them with valuable keys to success that would aid them in their educational journey.
