I believe everyone is a hurdler — even if they don’t know it. While they may not go over literal hurdles they are going over figurative ones.”

I’ve spent more than 10 years as a public speaker, addressing more than 30,000 people over that time.

Whether it’s during a keynote speech, emceeing a live event, a writer’s festival or moderating a panel discussion, I love this aspect of my work!

I’ve learned the secret to connecting with an audience is through storytelling. I like to find out who they are and what I can help them with, and then I tailor my delivery to those needs.

As a world-class athlete I’ve experienced some of the highest highs and lowest lows and I open up about this in more detail in my memoir, My Mother’s Daughter.

Turns out, I know a thing or two about overcoming on the track and off of it.

Interested in having me speak at your event? Great, let’s team up!
