“Meridith brought so much energy as the final keynote speaker for our annual Council of Manufacturing Associations Winter Leadership Conference. Her stage presence and knowledge made her immediately appealing to our audience. Our manufacturing association members loved THRIVE and how relevant it was to the uncertain economic and political times happening in 2023.
When Meridith was explaining the most important steps on how to thrive in uncertain times, she used historic manufacturers’ success stories. It showed that Meridith took the time to know and understand our audience and in-turn gave our members relevant information that they could bring to their organization.
Meridith also provided the audience with the toolkit they need to implement the THRIVE mentality and it was the most used resource at our conference! I would highly recommend Meridith to anyone who needs a high-energy, knowledgeable, and passionate speaker. We can’t thank her enough!”
