Praise for Stephanie Simpson...

  • “As an educator and coach, I have worked with Stephanie for a few years. I have expanded and grown in my career thanks to her. She challenges you to think and hone in on your focus, helping you to create clear goals and a plan of action. Her professionalism, dedication, and continuous personal development to the art of Life Coaching makes her indispensible to her clients. I would highly recommend Stephanie for personal coaching, team building, and conferences. I look forward to working with her for years to come!”

    —Paul Tait, Private School Administrator/Basketball Coach

  • “Everything with Stephanie went great. She is so personable and related well to our students. She was able to work with our needs to accommodate to both the younger and older students. I had a few teachers tell me this was the best Formal Dinner they have been to and I think the kids really liked it, too. Overall we were very impressed and would think about working with her again in the future.”

    —Natalie Mays, Associate Dean of Student Life, Eagle Hill School

Stephanie Simpson: Speech Topics


① ARTISTS CAN SAVE THE WORLD | ② YOU'RE A LEADER, NOW WHAT? | ③ STRESS MANAGEMENT 101 | ④ THE MINDFUL STUDENT

① Artists Can Save the World


Using voice and movement, Stephanie Simpson elevates the daring declaration that artists can save the world by showing us that we are all artists at heart. Tapping into our individual creative selves, we become more innovative problem solvers and effective critical thinkers capable of creating deeper, more meaningful relationships both in and out of the workplace. With insight and grace, Stephanie paints a picture of what’s possible if we all activate the artist within, and issues the invitation to save the world together.


② You’re a Leader, Now What?


Being a successful leader is not an easy task. Whether you are an executive, a manager, a project leader, a superintendent, a coach of a team, or the chairperson of a community group, it is important that we elicit high productivity from our followers. In this presentation, Stephanie discusses the different styles of leadership necessary to be effective along with tools in conflict resolution and how to create and develop a cohesive, high performing team. In addition, since proper goal setting is the key to seeing the needed changes implemented, Stephanie will guide participants in constructing smart goals, identifying distractions, and introduce techniques to overcome the obstacles and stay the course.


③ Stress Management 101: Working With Stress Will Bring You Success!


We all experience and feel stress in different ways. Most of the time, we view stress negatively. However, not all stress is negative. In fact, in order for us to perform optimally, research has shown that a certain amount of stress is needed. By creating a strong personal foundation, one can deal with adversity more easily, make decisions more clearly, perform more optimally, and maintain personal balance more effectively. Using tools and techniques from Sport Psychology, Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness, participants will be guided through short exercises to create their own daily practice that works for them. If we can re-define how we respond to stress, we can build a new relationship with it; one where stress becomes a facilitating partner in our lives, not a debilitating one.


④ The Mindful Student


Social and Academic anxiety has increasingly become a disorder among adolescents. Unaddressed, anxiety can lead to underperformance in the classroom, on the stage, on the field, and in life. Fortunately, effective coping skills can assist students in controlling and overcoming these obstacles. We can become advocates for better mental health by exposing and helping our students develop their own mindfulness practice. Mindfulness techniques can empower our students with more self-confidence, a stronger sense of self/voice, and a practice that can be used both inside and outside the classroom. In this presentation, Stephanie offer tools from Sport Psychology, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, and Yoga and shares how they can be implemented into the school curriculum.
