Some of Deondriea’s most popular presentations are:

Discovering Your Intrinsic Fire

The obligations associated with our roles and responsibilities have a tendency to monopolize our time and attention. Finding your passion for life and the things that you love is sometimes lost. Deondriea helps audiences ignite their burning desire for success.

Dare to Dream

Remember as a child, your dream had not limitations and your imagination ran free? Life happened and we settled into whatever situation presented itself to us. Finding your way back to your dreams and activating them takes work and Deondriea is ready to help you release your self-imposed limitations.

Captivating Communication

This powerfully effective keynote speech will allow your attendees to see and experience the importance of non-verbal communication. They’ll learn how their appearance affects the way others perceive them, how communication through social media can enhance or detract, and how to communicate across cultures.

Unbreakable Boundaries

We often find ourselves over giving and filling empty because we didn’t set and maintain personal boundaries. Deondriea walks people through the process of saying NO without feeling guilty or obligated to offer and explanation.

Are your teens feeling lost, unsupported and unmotivated?

Teens are riding a rollercoaster of emotions right now. They’re stuck going up and down. But all we need to do is show them their self-worth to help them succeed. The old ways of doing this don’t work anymore! And neither do the old ways of motivational speaking.

When I walk into a room, sure, I have great energy, encouragement for miles, and inspiration to spare. And yes, my personal story is one of overcoming tremendous hardship and incredible obstacles to succeed. But, here’s what I can give your audience that no one else can: real world knowledge.

With my experience going from a teen mom to a successful entrepreneur, I specialize in teaching your audience how to overcome stereotypes, realize they’re capable of being much more than a statistic, and see their future in a positive.

Here are a few of Deondriea’s most notable talks.

Being a Teen Parent is Like Being a Criminal

This true life, thought-provoking keynote speech allows your attendees to see and experience the importance of abstinence beyond pregnancy and disease. They’ll learn how it can damage their reputation amongst peers and society, emotionally and mentally damage their being through rejection, and how one decision can result in lifelong change.

Overcoming Adversity

No one is born with the perfect life, perfect family, in a perfect situation but it seems like bad and worse is all that you see when you look around you. It not easy having ambition when you can’t even see the future. Overcoming Adversity is no easy feat, but it is achievable.

Abstinence is the Answer

Teens have heard about abstinence a million times from thousands of people, but hearing why abstinence is important from someone who has experienced first how sex distorts and distracts you from a path of success.

I'm Not What You See

Teens wear labels and stereotypes like a tailor made suit. Peers, parents and people all have an opinion which makes it hard to see teens for who they are. Building a personal brand even in high school is a must for the youth of today.
