Whether it's sharing my personal path of entrepreneurship or teaching strategies to calm your chaos, let me inspire your audience to approach their lives with more intention.


Inspire your audience to think a little differently

I bring a unique combination of inner calm and humour that will set your audience at ease and open them up to thinking about how to approach their lives with more intention.

Whether you want a tactical session on productivity strategies, or to inspire your audience through my unique path and approach to entrepreneurship, I will provide a thoughtful, engaging, and impactful talk that will stick with them.

My keynotes and presentations are catered to your audience, regardless of size, always with the goal of giving them different ways of thinking and practical takeaways.

Some of my favourite topics include:

  • Strategies to calm your chaos and take control of your time.
  • Cancer, multiple sclerosis, and learning resilience on the path to success.
  • How being intentional will make you a better leader.
  • How to become a recovering perfectionist and overcome imposter syndrome.

Looking for something different? I am happy to create a custom talk!

Ashley’s virtual presentation for our Growth Accelerator was curated to the needs of our cohort who were having challenges with scope creep, delegating and time management. It was exactly what these business founders needed to create the time in their day to do the real proactive work to move their businesses forward; the work they WANT to be doing. Thank you, Ashley!
