"How to Communicate Authentically"
Every person has the power to communicate and connect authentically. On the other side of this connection is TRUST. And trust turns into more abundance, more partnerships, more progress.
What people don’t realize is in order to get clear and make connections with people, we first need to understand HOW to discover our own truth, and share it with others in a way that resonates. And this must be accomplished in a professional and time-efficient manner.
Erin has developed a framework for quick, authentic communication called Head-Heart-Core. She takes the audience on an interactive journey to first understand self, and then connect with others.
Head-Heart-Core helps people experience the difference between expressing thoughts, feelings and desires - in real time. When people learn to communicate from all three places, we are showing up as the most authentic version of ourselves.
Erin helps people understand the unique power of our stories, the lessons we learn from them and the universal truths that tie all humans together.

Founder, Access Opportunity
While taking center stage, Erin has the remarkable ability to make you feel like you’re the one being heard. I invited her to speak at our conference. In less than 30 minutes of Erin being her genuine, warm, and funny self, she drew out buried truths and major self-insights from the audience. Across the board, she was their favorite speaker of the conference.

I can’t thank Erin enough for the truly excellent lunch seminar. I have received wonderful feedback from so many of the employees. Her presentation certainly made quite an impression on all of us!
Sales, Lemongrass Spa
Erin engaged us at our leadership Retreat. She was awesome, so inspiring. Her approach on her topic “Head, Heart, Core” and her exercises in this concept left me with a full heart. Definitely one of the best seminars. Thank You Erin.
Founder, The WILD Summit
Erin has spoken several times at the WILD Summit (Women Inspiring Leadership Development) and has brought down the house every time! She has a comfortable, entertaining, and engaging style that quickly captures her audience’s attention and then keeps them enthralled for her entire speech.
Truth be told, Erin’s kind of been our speaking “ringer” since we started our event several years ago. She is someone we can bring in at any point in our program to lift the mood – the truth – and the overall quality of our Summit.
VP, Merrill Lynch
Erin has such a unique and refreshing approach, and I think she is doing a wonderful job spreading her very important message. An employee gave me feedback saying that today’s seminar was one of the best programs we have ever offered our employees.
Erin has a presence that glows and uplifts. The minute I met her, I felt like we were friends. She's empowering, enlightening, motivating, and gives an incredible energy to the room! So happy you were able to speak to us Lemongrass Spa Leaders, what an amazing experience!
