Speaking

Happy Audience

Let’s challenge the status quo!  We’re not workhorses, but individuals wanting to maximize our potential on all levels.  Despite our work-obsessed culture, there are paths to professional success that don’t include burnout.

When I speak publicly, my goal is that participants return to their nonprofits as pioneers for personal change and organizational reform. To hire me as a guest speaker, you can contact me at danielle@PrimaveraStrategies.com

I have seen Danielle present a few times on her life coach skills and how to avoid burnout. All I can say is WOW. Each time I have heard Danielle speak, her content is refreshed and always so relevant. I felt that she has really armed me with not only the knowledge but also the tools to feel excited and passionate about my work again.

Burnout is a very real thing. And Danielle has very real, very inspiring solutions.

I have attended several in-person and online presentations from Danielle, and have been impressed each time.  Her presentation style is warm and calming, and she brings concrete, actionable ideas for improving work/life balance and avoiding burnout that attendees are able to implement.  It is clear from her presentations that she is knowledgeable in her field, and that she cares deeply about supporting non-profit professionals in accomplishing their missions while maintaining healthy and fulfilling lives.  I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone looking for a high-quality presentation for their staff or community organization.

Danielle’s webinar on Social Media is exceptional!

She opened my eyes to the many negative impacts of social media on our overall personal health and wellbeing, our mental health and self-esteem, our ability to be present and connect on a more deeply human level with others, and how that affects us as individuals, families, communities, and as a nation. More importantly she provided many creative ways that we can use social media in a positive way, to help uplift ourselves and others, contributing to creating a culture of wellness and playing to the “better angels of our nature.

I left Danielle’s session with a new awareness of the burnout signs I missed when I left my previous fundraising job.  I learned that I can be proactive in preventing burnout by applying my core values to my job and life.  I feel relieved knowing I don’t have to burn out – I now have tangible tools to help me remain energized and fulfilled at work and home.

Danielle gives us permission to talk about the topic of burnout, helping us understand why it happens and how to implement good habits that nurture and protect us from being stressed and overworked.  The thought exercises she walks us through are excellent first steps to creating a life that is more balanced and fulfilling.
