We opened with a fantastic keynote from Erica Cuni with our 400+ attendees. I cannot recommend her enough. What she talks about applies to all of us. Doesn’t matter what your job is, what your role is - the idea of how stress impacts us, our health, mental health, physical health - she touches upon all of it. And, the message rings true. If you’re looking to work with someone who is genuine: she’s authentic, and she comes across that way on stage. Check her out and have her be a part of your event. You will not regret it.

Erica's energy, presentation style, and story draw you in immediately, but it's her message and spirit that continue to resonate. I have worked with military personnel for over 12 years and have seen a variety of speakers struggle to connect with this demographic. Erica, however, quickly establishes creditability, speaks their "language," and is incredibly relatable.

Erica was able to connect with, listen and respond to the needs of the audience, tailoring her message in real time to address their specific concerns. Everyone needs this.
