Grace was a big hit at this yearâ€™s IBM Women in Technology conference.
In her keynote, â€śIf thereâ€™s a Mountain, Climb It!â€ť she described how in coming up with a big win, often the biggest obstacle to overcome is a fear of failure.
Grace shared her personal story of overcoming a dramatic cycling accident to overcome fear, navigate obstacles, and create new paths. The audience held on to her every word and walked away inspired.
Graceâ€™s keynote â€śOn Obstacles and Entrepreneurshipâ€ť was inspirational!
Her courage and perseverance to not give up in the midst of challenging times is admirable. Her personal story served as a great example to us all, especially those of us pulled in multiple professional and personal priorities.
It also showed us that we all have our own journey and that we will eventually end up where we belong.
She took the time to understand our goals for the weekend and what we hoped her remarks would capture for the participants. Ms. Ueng was the perfect fit because she relates so well to her audience, is highly credible, and most importantly, is very engaging.
I would highly recommend hiring her for your next speaking need. She has a special way of connecting to her audience and is very willing to engage any questions even after she steps off the podium. Ms. Ueng makes a gracious keynote.
A fan of Graceâ€™s coaching and marketing talents, I recommended she conduct a Personal Branding workshop for our firm.
Her workbooks areÂ reallyÂ helpful â€“ especially for the associates who we are trying to help guide.Â Even senior attorneys need reminders on what they should be doing, and they said as much after Graceâ€™s workshop. Â She struck the right tone and hit the right level of advice for the wide range of attorneys attending.
Grace energized and inspired us to put more time into our marketing efforts, which is exactly the result I was hoping for!
