Have you ever attended a speech where you left energized and enthusiastic, only to get sidewalk amnesia? You forget why you were inspired, and by the time you hit the car, the speaker's message, and your excitement, is lost. Have you ever presented one like that?

That's what the 2017, 10th Annual Lady & the Champs Speakers Conference is all about…
