About the speaker

 Libby Spears

Libby Spears: Speaker, Educator, Rule Breaker. 

Holding an audience’s attention for more than five minutes is this frenetic, technology driven culture is a challenge for any speaker. Libby's ability to not only hold her audience's attention but captivate them, inspire them & challenge them to be their best is unmatched. She operates from the question "What's YOUR Plan BE?" This question is the foundation for all her popular topics and works from the belief that to BE remarkable you must be ready to try new things, challenge yourself and not be paralyzed by fear, anxiety and doubt.

A former debate nerd, college professor and life long student, Libby defies the stereotypes of those in her field. Her storytelling ability and natural humor make all her presentations feel like something more than a classroom experience. If you ask her her philosophy she will tell you “I am a teacher not a preacher”. And she understands how people learn--by engaging them! Her consulting adventure, Bravo CC provides all her clients with the tools they need to be game changers in every aspect of their communication
