This could easily have been a keynote, and was dangerously under-attended. Olivia mixes anecdotes, humor, and Family Feud clips for a talk that leaves you feeling "heck yeah, I can do this!"

This was a fantastic talk! The speaker engaged the audience with humor and great information. I left with some new ways to look at things and tools for managing fear. I will try some new things and use those tools to overcome the fears.
