Norma’s understanding of self-awareness is grounded in her degree in human development and two decades directing large educational programs. In her second career she owned a speaker bureau and expanded her knowledge by studying speakers and how they shared their message. Now as a speaker herself, Norma consults, speaks, trains and coaches on the value of self-awareness and how it can be achieved through authenticity. She is committed to making a difference in the world by helping people gain the strength and well-being that comes from self-awareness so that they can positively impact society and the organizations they work with.

Her presentations are an original mix of teaching, touching and transforming audiences through her inspirational training keynotes and seminars. In her signature presentation she shares knowledge of the importance of authenticity, administers her Authenticity Assessment and uses the results to help audiences apply their findings to themselves, their organizations, careers, parenting and team building needs. In the process audiences learn their leadership and communication style and how to ‘tweak’ one or two areas of their life to increase their level of success. She is a dynamic, memorable and transformational speaker whose audiences leave her presentations with specific action items that make a difference in their life.

In 2014 Norma was identified as one of the Top 100 Professionals in the Health Promotion Industry. She was also awarded the Collaborator of the Year award from the Professional Speakers Association. She is a Board Certified Coach and certifies coaches and speakers to deliver her authenticity process. She’s the author of Ten Steps to Authenticity and The Process to Become a Professional Speaker. In addition, she has produced many workbooks, audios, videos and programs that apply authenticity concepts in multiple ways. Her signature accomplishment is the Authenticity Grid, a graphic representation of the nine dimensions of authenticity and the Authenticity Assessment, a self-assessment that provides an overview of an individual’s perceived level of authenticity and self-awareness.
