Choosing Courage: 3 Steps to Help Emerging Leaders Speak Up, Stand Out and Stay True to Themselves 
In a perfect world, young leaders would fully and freely be themselves — in school, work and beyond. In reality, though, they are met with societal pressures, gender expectations and racial stereotypes that challenge their ability to be true to who they are. And, it can be easy to magnify fear of rejection and ridicule …  unless they’ve got the resources to speak up, stand out and stay true to themselves. Well, they do have the resources; they just need to know how to use them. In this captivating keynote, composed with the perfect blend of storytelling and research, Candace Doby teaches audiences a three-part process to leverage the tools of courage to manage fear and express their uniqueness.  This powerful keynote will change the way audiences evaluate risks and resources and allow them to audit their own internal tools to be themselves.

How to Translate Travel Skills Into Leadership Skills

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 want to or 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.
