When I first started working with Stacie I was at a crossroad, should I stay at my current company or move on. She is a very compassionate listener and helped me identify the undercurrent of what was happening and the crux of what I needed. I was able to decipher what was at the heart of the issue for me.

I felt I wasn’t being valued or acknowledged in my position and I wanted to be seen as a leader.

She helped me gain the confidence to be more assertive and find my own voice which has been a big breakthrough for me. I had a great conversation with my boss about the goals I want to achieve for my career and together we put an action plan in place, giving me more responsibility to help grow and manage the business and myself.

This may seem like an oxymoron statement but it is possible to have some fun in even the most stressful environments. Although I can’t speak for having a job in the White House, FBI or the Secret Service, my guess is that even they may have a laugh or two once in a...

Thank you for taking the time to check out my website to learn a little about me and if we are going to work together which I hope we do.

Now on with a few fun facts…

My name is Stacie Speaker, born, raised and still living in California and yes, “Speaker” is my given name.

I earned my degree in Communications from CSU Fullerton. After graduation, I worked in Hollywood behind the scenes on the Warner Bros. hit tv shows, “Friends”, “Murphy Brown” and the Universal film, “Jurassic Park; The Lost World”, and Sony’s “Wild Things”. Years later I transitioned to the corporate side where I helped market kids’ toys for the largest entertainment licensing and toy manufacturing companies in the world, The Walt Disney Company, DreamWorks Animation, Rovio, JAKKS Pacific and Mattel.

I was happy in the world of entertainment and toys, I spent the last 20 years of my life building relationships, communities, listening and helping people solve problems, giving a voice to people who were too shy to speak up. Being part of two interwoven industries which created memories, a way to dream bigger, experience emotions for kids of all ages, through the movies and toys we produced was and is a privilege I will never forget.

I’ve been extremely fortunate to have met and been influenced by some amazing people in both industries, actors/actresses, producers, directors, VPs, SVPs & CEOs. I’ve learned invaluable lessons on how to communicate with passion, empathy, laughter, and important lessons on using words, tone, and non-verbal language which can make or break a team and ultimately a company. I’ve experienced my share of conflict, being passed over for a promotion, not being taken seriously, not being heard or valued as a team member, being harassed and sometimes bullied.

There is always a place for improvement, lessons to be learned, knowledge to pass along and I knew it was time to take a chance and start my own company where I could help leaders improve upon their communication foundation and deal with conflict before it takes over the office culture.

Now more than ever, there are so many mixed messages, so much frustration, disbelief and anger and working with leaders to lean in and face the internal and external conflicts head on and not avoid the problems is what I am passionate about.

We need leaders who create the opportunity for people to have conversations, to be heard so they can create organizations of inclusion, diversity, and compassion which will result in a successful business model.
