Keynote Speaker Change – Adapt and Succeed

Deanne understands Change, Adapt and Success all too well.  Most of her life she has lived these concepts. Deanne’s father was blind due to the war, her mother became the breadwinner of the family. Later after the birth of her second child Deanne was told he would be dead by his first birthday.

In her Motivational Keynote: Stop Spinning and Start Winning Deanne tackles this topic head on.

Is it a new career? A new job? Personal Success? Whatever your personal goal or dream this keynote presentation will inspire you. Based on a true story we learn the success secrets of perseverance, daring to dream and overcoming the fear of failure. This compelling motivational keynote story will leave participants with the belief that if “Bobby Can – I Can.”   They too, can learn to crawl, walk, and finally run toward their dreams.

Deanne’s unique style and penchant for results have been most affected by her son Bobby’s amazing  story.

“Six months after we brought our son Bobby home from the hospital, we started planning his funeral.” “Medical tests led doctors to believe that he wouldn’t live beyond his first birthday. And, if, by some miracle he did survive, he never would walk.” Everyone was resigned to Bobby’s fate. Everyone, that is, except Bobby.

Against all odds, Bobby celebrates his first birthday, then his second and his third. At age four, he struggles to take his first steps.  He fails. He tries, again. He fails, again. But, all the while, Bobby is nurturing a dream. A dream not just to walk in spite of excruciating pain – but, to run. With Deanne’s encouragement, Bobby ran his first marathon at the age of 17.

The keynote: Stop Spinning, Start Winning explores Deanne’s incredible journey with her son, and uses his story as a metaphor to connect with her audience and to communicate the important lessons:  the power of perseverance, overcoming our fears of failure, and daring to dream BIG!

Deanne always knew she’d be a great platform speaker. Starting in High School she started to study speech communication and theatre. While in high school she won her first public speaking – 1st place speaking award. It would be years later and many speaking awards later that she became an in-demand keynote speaker and business speaker.

I attended the Coaching Clinic two-day training session. The class provided a unique hands-on approach to dealing with all types of employee situations The class reinforced several key supervisory skills that we occasionally forget to stay focused on when encountering employee issues.   An excellent class with natural group participation in a non-forced environment.

Director, Exelon

I have had the privilege to watch Deanne deliver keynotes and teach and facilitate a training process.  And every time I watch her, I marvel at how she is able to help people connect to each other and to the materials that she is presenting. She is always well prepared, has a great sense of humor and she really knows what she is doing. You will really like her.

Deanne’s customized business keynotes and management coaching and training workshops have been well received. Companies often ask her to return for additional speaking, facilitating, coaching or training.

DeMarco is published author with four books and business articles published over 300 trade journals and magazines. The focus of this keynote speakers articles is on retention, motivation, leadership, and management strategies for the changing workforce.

Deanne is an outstanding speaker and trainer. I am very impressed with her ability to communicate and inspire. I am especially impressed with her ability to coach groups of people from very different backgrounds and helping them work better together. Her teachings in the area of intercultural communication and conflict resolution have been especially helpful in my current position. I would recommend Deanne to any organization seeking to improve their communication skills.

Sales Manager, Honeywell Home and Building Control

Deanne makes learning exciting. She knows how to engage the adult learner in interactive education. Deanne worked with our Board of Directors on a retreat. They enjoyed themselves and came away with a clearer sense of teamwork and mission. Deanne gets involved in the learning process and everyone comes out a winner.

Executive Director, Peninsula Center for the Blind

This keynote speaker has always had a special place in her heart for diversity.  Her father was blind, due to the war.  So, her first written language was Braille. She later was a reader for the blind and learned ASL (American Sign Language). Because of her strong medical background she saw a need for an Emergency Room interpreter for the deaf and willingly volunteered for this position.

Deanne’s unique keynote speaking style and penchant for results have been most affected by her son Bobby’s amazing  story:

“Six months after we brought our son Bobby home from the hospital, we started planning his funeral.” “Medical tests led doctors to believe that he wouldn’t live beyond his first birthday. And, if, by some miracle he did survive, he never would walk.”

Everyone was resigned to Bobby’s fate. Everyone, that is, except Bobby. Against all odds, Bobby celebrates his first birthday, then his second and his third. At age four, he struggles to take his first steps.  He fails. He tries, again. He fails, again. But, all the while, Bobby is nurturing a dream. A dream not just to walk in spite of excruciating pain – but, to run. With Deanne’s encouragement, Bobby ran his first marathon at the age of 17.

As a motivational keynote speaker Deanne often uses this incredible journey with her son, and uses his story as a metaphor to connect with her audience and to communicate the important lessons:  the power of perseverance, overcoming our fears of failure, and daring to dream BIG!
