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 approach their lives a little differently

Whether you want a tactical workshop 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 attendees.

My talks are customized to your audience to give them different practical takeaways and different ways to approach how they manage their time.

Sessions can be delivered in person or virtually.

Some of my favourite topics include:

  • Productivity and calming chaos (includes topics such as decision-making, prioritization, focus, boundary-setting, email and meeting management, etc.).
  • My experiences with my husband's cancer, living with multiple sclerosis, and learning resilience.
  • How to build a better meeting culture and run more effective meetings.
  • How to overcome impostor 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!
