Let’s face it.
You and your audiences are tired of hearing from manel after manel*, and the mental gymnastics to justify why your presenters list doesn’t include any people of colour is not a routine you want to do any more.
Whether you’re looking for a keynote speaker, a panelist, or host, when you book Valery, you know you’re booking a woman of colour speaker who delivers.
Valery’s training as a speaker began over twenty years ago when she completed her Bachelor of Journalism Hons. degree at Carleton University. Since then she has given numerous speeches, been a guest lecturer for academic courses, appeared on numerous panels, and has been featured on television, radio, in newspapers, and more. Valery produced and hosted two seasons of the podcast Life Without Us.
- Women of Colour in Leadership
- Community Building and Interdependence
- Not-For-Profit Strategy
Some of Valery’s recent appearances include:
1:1 Interview with Passion Coach Shilbee Dhalla-Kim
*Manel: a panel that consists of men only.
