Hi, I’m Candace — a speaker, author and coach who works with universities and organizations to help emerging leaders take worthwhile risks to unlock their potential. When young leaders choose courage, they unleash the confidence and creativity within themselves, their teams and their organizations.
I’ve got something exciting to share! I signed a book deal with national publisher Sourcebooks to release a reimagined edition of IF COURAGE COULD TALK. I couldn’t be more thrilled about this partnership and the opportunity to reach more people to help them check their fear and do their thing.
If you didn’t have a chance to purchase the first version of the book, don’t worry. The new book will be available at booksellers in early 2022.
Candace is a intentional and impactful speaker on the subject of courage. We hired Candace to speak at a smaller event for 125 professionals who identified as women because of her topic of courage. Candace captivated the attention of the group so well that we invited her to our large event of 600+ later in the year.

Candace was a wonderful and engaging speaker who knew how to tailor her message of courage to fit the theme and mission of our organization. She is clearly both thoughtful and passionate, which was reflected in the way that she interacted with students, dutifully answering their questions and easing their fears.

Candace has a great ability to clearly communicate with young people in an engaging and inspiring manner. She helped our group truly understand the components of courage and then provided them the opportunity to apply that learning to their own specific goals. Everyone left feeling empowered.

Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage. – Maya Angelou
