We are honored Brenda Reiss is our February Spotlight speaker

Brenda Reiss, 2-time author, speaker and podcast host is a sought-after Transformation and Forgiveness coach who guides her cherished clients from being stuck in shame, resentment and self-sabotage to feeling freer, more expanded and ready to share themselves and their passions with the world.

When she is not providing compassionate guidance to help her clients create more abundance, clarity of purpose and freedom in their lives, you can find her hiking, playing with grandkids, snuggling with her fur babies, or reading a book (or two) to expand her mind, soul and business.

The key to your success is in liberating yourself from your past to create an incredible future of your dreams.

In this interactive presentation Brenda will be sharing with you tangible tips and tools to be able to let go and move forward learning how to re-engage with our life in a joyful way.

In Brenda's 20-minute talk she will share It's Time to Move Forward! 5 Steps to Help You Step Into Your Power.

During this presentation you’ll learn tips, tools and inspiration for reclaiming your power and igniting your soul.

Exceptional Connections provides a relationship based approach to networking that encourages and nurtures relationships. We teach the ease and power of building your business one relationship at a time. One of our guiding principles is ‘The Law of Contribution’ which states that “the level of your success and happiness is in direct proportion to the number of people that you serve selflessly”. At ECN, we define success as sowing, not reaping, and we model and teach this philosophy. Robert Louis Stevenson reinforces this belief, ” I consider the success of my day based on the seeds I sow, not the harvest I reap”. With this powerful mindset, businesses naturally flourish as powerful advocates are created, and transformed into an army of raving fans…

In addition to attracting exceptional people and businesses each month; we teach networking skills using our 6 Steps to Exceptional Connecting Connection Circle, highlight a different nominated member with an Exceptional Insight presentation, each attendee is offered the visibility of a 45-second Spotlight commercial (we offer a unique opportunity to be seen and heard by everyone in the room), we host a 20-minute Spotlight speaker and showcase the services and products of our Marketplace Spotlight vendors…
