Lesson from the Monarch: Finding Pockets of Joy in Change, Loss and Transition

Imagine if… change could make us better, happier.
This is Roxane’s story.
Her true story of building back and finding joy after losing it all.

Whether it’s a layoff, loss, or difficult life transition, Roxane shares from her lived experiences and tumultuous transition away from a high-stakes television career into a new and fulfilling life as an in-demand speaker and bestselling author.

It’s a journey of fear turned into fortitude, unhappiness into joy.
Caterpillar into Monarch.

Through candor and engaging storytelling, Roxane goes deep, with takeaways your audience can implement right now, and through the power of choice, begin to see change not as an obstacle, but an opportunity to experience authentic pockets of joy.

  • Acceptance – an effective process that can reduce anxiety and lead to effective problem-solving.
  • Authenticity – embracing your true self, crafting a life plan for happiness.
  • Alone Time – the difference between loneliness and solitude, and how to harness alone time to find joy.
  • Attitude – is indeed everything especially an attitude of gratitude- how to overcome a challenge and find lasting joy.


Courageous Conversations: The Right Words to Create Belonging and Pockets of Joy

Once considered a soft skill, effective communication is now considered a top hard skill by employers and team leaders. Yet, public speaking is also a number one fear.

Roxane has spent her entire adult life in front of audiences. A gifted communicator and master in the art of public speaking, in this presentation, she walks you through how to say “no” and mean it, how to navigate tough conversations, and the secrets of giving a really great talk.

  • It’s how we’re wired – why public speaking is a #1 fear and how to overcome it.
  • Behind every “no” is a “yes” – how to communicate and respect boundaries.
  • Difficult conversations – keys to navigating conflict.
  • Words to say – precise words and phrases and when to say them.
