Gail Larsen’s work has been described by Fast Company as “transforming your relationship to your voice via the deepest stirrings of your soul.” She takes what is often considered our greatest fear–public speaking–and helps us understand that fear is truly excitement without the breath. She delights in each person finding their own to speak from the truth of who they are and what they love to open hearts, inspire change, and move people to act.
Gail is the founder of Real Speaking® and the award-winning author of Transformational Speaking: If You Want to Change the World, Tell a Better Story. An SBA award-winning entrepreneur, her original approach to communication draws from her own journey as a previously reluctant speaker, her respect for indigenous wisdom, three plus decades in the world of speaking, and wide experience in business and association management. She is a former EVP of the worldwide National Speakers Association and served on the faculty of Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY from 2008-2018. In 2014, she instigated the annual Holy Fools Day Extravaganza, an online event celebrating people who step outside convention to find their voices and become the radical change artists their souls are calling them to be. Gail offers Transformational Speaking to a global audience through both her Online Academy and live immersions in Santa Fe, NM.
