Speaking

Lela Davidson with the Arkansas Women Bloggers

Lela is available to speak to your group or conference session about relationships, work/life balance, social media, self-publishing, and all aspects of a freelance writing career.

“Relatable. Witty and sharp. Lela’s tips on “making time for the things you love” put into perspective the things that deserve our utmost attention and those that don’t. Her tips on time and social media management have helped our league avoid these time-eaters and energy-drainers.” ~Niccole Poole, Junior League of Tuscaloosa

Lela is described as:

“hilarious and brutally honest”

“ridiculously funny and truly inspiring”

“one of our better programs as she quickly engaged the audience”

“The morning after Lela spoke to our League my email box was flooded with words of praise. She really inspired our members and their feedback included everything from ‘I think I need a life change’ to ‘Sign me up to head up the benefit committee’ to ‘What she said really spoke to me.'”  ~Joan Cornellier-Travers, President of the Junior League of Westchester on the Sound, Mamaroneck, NY

Is Lela’s style right for your group?

Read about the experiences of other meeting planners:

“Be INSPIREd” is the theme of a women’s gathering that has become an annual event at our church. This year we invited Lela to share her stories and inspire us in a new way! We felt that she would appeal to our younger church members. The real joy that evening was to see that Lela’s stories and pointers crossed all generations. A look around the room saw grandmothers and newlyweds alike smiling and shaking their heads. They could each identify with Lela! Lela made us laugh…she made us look at our lives in a new way…and she inspired us!”  ~Harriet Mack, First United Methodist Church

“Both ridiculously funny and truly inspiring, Lela spoke to our local MOPS group about why it is vital to “date” your husband and how to go about doing it. We all left feeling ready to plan our next date. We laughed and we cried and we loved every minute of it.” ~Stephanie McCratic, for MOPS

“Lela Davidson stands out as one of our better programs as she quickly engaged the audience with questions, statistics and personal anecdotes on the topic of Social Media.  Although most of the audience was familiar with her topic, there were take-a-ways for both the novice and the savvy users of SM. I look forward to her return for Part 2!” ~H.B. Fink, for Rotary Club of Springdale, AR

“Thank you so much for speaking to Women In Networking. We had a great turnout and I think it has a lot to do with you being the speaker. The ladies had only great things to say about it. You are hilarious and I love that you are so brutally honest.” ~Rhonda Porter, Women In Networking
