Our Distinguished Speaker
Keda Edwards Pierre
Thought Leader, Inspirational Speaker
Founder of True II Soul Network
So, you’re surviving in this dog-eat-dog world – now what? How do we kick it up a notch? I know, firsthand, what this takes – as a Black female police veteran and an adult survivor of physical, sexual and racial trauma. A life full of challenges taught me a few important lessons – including that trust, adaptability, and authenticity are essential for success. Our achievements correlate with our willingness to be true to who we are, our capacity to trust ourselves and our readiness to release old versions of ourselves to transform our lives.
As women, how do we lead in today’s world? A better question is: How well do you trust your capacity to lead? Success is built on trust, and trust is built on honesty – with yourself and with others. Combine these with authenticity and adaptability for true empowerment – from home to boardroom. I don’t have a magic pill or formula for you. What I offer are unique perspectives, life experiences, hard-won lessons and effective methods. My methods are how I was able to build a successful 27-year policing career – and this is how I was able to leave it (despite many clucking tongues and well-intentioned warnings). I’m now the renaissance woman I always envisioned – as an actor, coach and inspirational speaker. I’m living a life that I should not have by all accounts and most societal rules. What life do you envision for yourself?
I’ll share a 5-Point Self-Check List, also known as my True II Soul ABCs:Alignment, Boots on the Ground, Communication, Care and Creativity. My “tried, tested and true” checklist brings clarity and guidance in pursuit of excellence. Want to kick it up a notch? This is what I live and breathe. Come learn how!
