  • Perseverance with Grit Keynote (Adrienne’s award winning program)

    The difference between living your best life and dreading getting out of bed in the morning boils down to a handful of daily choices. Truth: when life is rainbows and cupcakes it is easy to persevere. Realty: when life hands you your tush on a silver platter the word “perseverance” quickly seems like a four letter word that makes you cringe.

    “Perseverance With Grit” is a program that teaches teens what it takes to build a fierce self-confidence while also giving them the tools to achieve their dreams and goals. Teens learn how to use adversity as stepping stones not set backs.  This award-winning program focuses on the whole person as Adrienne zeros in on four simple choices you make every day and when calculated correctly can have limitless results. Adrienne empowers her audiences with the tools to stay focused, be effective leaders, overcome adversity, and live the life envisioned. 

    This program is built on a series of real-life stories of perseverance and overcoming the odds  (including her own best known story of severing her foot from her leg and struggling to define her definition of  perseverance) . Get ready to laugh, cry and dream bigger than you did this morning!

  • Leadership & Salsa Team Building/Leadership/Group Activity

    Did you ever think you would see your colleagues or peers learning salsa and leadership at the same time? And laughing as they learn? This is a fun activity for people with two left feet as well as people who have years of dance training.  While learning the basics of partner dancing, Adrienne and her dance partner teach the skills of being a good leader as well as being a good follower - on the dance floor, in the workplace, in school and in life.  Being an effective leader is powerful, just as being a supportive follower can be influential. The foundation of any great business, organization, or school is leadership, the understanding of how to follow, respect one another and communicate... all skills you learn through partner dancing.  

    Ideal Audience: Conference breakout

    Program Run Time: 60-90 minutes
