Want to know a secret from Holly Dowling? How to have a GREAT WEEK every WEEK?
What started as an idea in September turned into the first formal public event hosted by The Sustainable Innovation MBA (SI-MBA) program’s Women for Change group. Seven months ago, Lauren Masters, a current student of the SI-MBA program said, “I think Holly Dowling would be a great speaker to catalyze and legitimize our group within UVM’s Grossman School of Business and the greater Burlington community.”
The MBA Women for Change, a student-founded and managed group, is about to conclude its first year of existence, and scored a number of significant accomplishments in 2018-2019 aimed at bringing the issue of gender equality in the workplace to the forefront.

I highly recommend Holly Dowling because she has an amazing ability to engage audiences, of various sizes, and break down barriers. She is an award-winning speaker on leadership, empowerment, strengths-based performance and personal/professional excellence. Holly is in demand-with speaking engagements booked well into 2020, with no agent. Her stellar reputation has resulted in referrals often to large, Fortune 500 companies such as Cisco, Deloitte, Mercedes Benz, Hilton. Because she started her career working as a cruise director, she was groomed and trained to connect with diverse audiences, to exhibit poise and grace under pressure, to inspire action and accountability that results in better performance, better quality of life and better connections. The impact her message has on audiences is long-lasting and life-changing. Fantastic Public Speaker sums Holly up in 3 words—- but what she can do and the impact she has is far greater!!!
Have you ever been a party to or a witness of domestic violence? The statistics are shocking, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence 1 in 4 women experience severe intimate partner violence including both physical and verbal abuse.

It can lead to the development of disorders like depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder if left untreated.
Whether a meeting planner is looking to motivate employees, inspire an audience or educate C-level executives on the latest marketing strategies, hiring a professional speaker is often easier said than done. Mismatched styles, wrong messaging or unprofessional delivery can easily result in a speaking event that doesn’t encourage or engage attendees. Therefore, it’s vital that meeting planners do their homework to find a speaker that keeps attendees wanting more.

Female leaders in tech have to play by different rules. The hard truth is that women are still in the minority at all levels of tech careers. While Fortune 500 companies appointed a record number of women to board seats in 2017, there are still only 5% of women in CEO roles at companies in the S & P 500.
On today’s show, Holly talks about how she started her entrepreneurial journey by following a news article she saw in the paper when she was a stay-at-home mom, how she became an inspirational thought leader, and much more.
