This is a motivational, uplifting and empowering session that have left many laughing, crying and rising to their feet with gratitude.
You don’t want to pass up the opportunity to have Tracy speak at your event. Tracy has led workshops as a speaker and done keynotes for us. Our attendees were talking about her and her presentations for months and even years after our events. Many shared they were crying and laughing all at the same time throughout her presentations.
Her raw and realness about difficult life circumstances, balanced with concrete examples of how goodness has come from those inspires and influences people. Sprinkling in her humor makes her presentations impactful to all in the room. Add her knowledge of trauma and how the brain works imparts amazing takeaways for all participants.
Behind the scenes, she was very easy to work with. I left every conversation with Tracy in a better place than I came into it. We had all her pieces and parts in on time making the life of the event team much easier.
You do not want to miss all the heart and soul Tracy brings to events.
“As a busy woman who wears a number of hats including mom of six, grandmother of twelve, full-time bank executive, small city Mayor, and past state president of a women’s volunteer organization, I found myself having a difficult time finding “me” in my schedule. I was so busy responding to the needs of others, that I forgot that I also needed to respond to my needs as well. Listening to Tracy’s talk about “I am” and “I will” was life-changing and just what I needed to hear at that time in my life. She delivered her message with compassion, humor, and insight that was easy to identify with. She definitely understands what challenges all women face in their daily lives and gives simple, easy and effective tools for helping us make shifts in our daily lives to remember who we are.”

“You are an amazing instructor, orator and person! Good luck with finishing your PhD Dissertation, much success is sure to follow you throughout life. I do hope our paths cross again.”
“Slightly nervous upon entering this day long class. The class description involved words like, “networks” “databases” and other technological names that were unsettling due to my lack of knowledge in this area. My mind was immediately put to ease after meeting the class instructor, Tracy Loken Weber. Her welcoming personality was comforting, her politeness was infectious and she was extremely knowledgeable. This class definitely left me feeling more confident in the “technology” area because of how simplified Tracy explained things to us. Thank you, Tracy, for the wealth of useful information you shared with me!”
“Tracy you are AMAZING! I truly enjoyed your class on Wednesday! I hope to see you in the future!”
