We were fortunate to have Judi speak at our women’s event. She rocked our event. After her talk so many of our team members were motivated to take action – whether it was on their own or supporting each other to hustle! We even put Fear Is My Homeboy on our iconic scoreboard, so it was literally a home run.

Judi Holler was an entertaining and inspirational presenter. She conducted fear experiments with members of our group – bringing people on stage to participate in improv games – not only did it help them face their fears of public speaking; it was a great way for the audience to get to know them. Judi did an outstanding job and we definitely want her to come back to speak to our team!
– Michele Bartlett - Ford Motor Company / General Manager Commercial Vehicle Sales & Marketing
Judi is an inspiration not only to myself but to our entire family of companies. We’ve hired Judi on four different occasions and each time I hear her speak, I gain something new from each of her presentations. Her work on courage is relevant and relatable, which always encourages our team members to bravely take action both personally AND professionally.
