Bernadette McClelland


Influential Speaker On Disruption and
Business Growth


The learnings and W.I.S.D.O.M. Principles Bernadette shares in this keynote [Wisdom. Identity. Strategy. Decision. Ownership and Mental Readiness] will reshape your direction, fully amplifying your impact and levels of fulfilment.

TAILORED STRATEGIES FOR TOMORROWS CHALLENGES - In a rapidly changing world, drawing on Bernadette’s journey of bankruptcy to global relocation, the message is clear: The future belongs to those ready to disrupt their narratives, those who are proactive and not reactive. Whether that disruption is AI, restructures or lost revenue, we can no longer be bystanders, but deliberate disruptors.

PRACTICAL MINDSET SHIFTS -You won’t just hear about transformation as an abstract concept – you’ll experience it through actionable mental prompts that you can immediately reference on a daily basis.

Bernadette will make a video for social media to market your event.  Perhaps a blog for your newsletter or website? Or even as a   podcast guest? This is all about YOU.

She will wrap the fickleness of ‘sales speak’ language with the  nuances of psychology and story and address more than just the rudimentary basics of ‘how to sell’.

Her presentation is part of an event eco-system, not the entire solar  system and she has a lack of diva-ness that is like a breath of fresh  air.

She will spend time interviewing relevant people prior to the event  to ensure she knows your business, your lingo and your outcomes  so that your audience feels ‘she gets me’ Want some books to give away? Just ask!

If you would like her to spend the day with you, or even join you for  dinner or breakfast, this is all part of her silver service.

If you need an Emcee at the last minute, or simply want an extra voice to make your event more seamless, Bernadette will bring levity and flow.

From the C-Suite, to Conference Organizers, her testimonials are  world-class, and you will notice, she PROVIDES NAMES!

She has a variety of incremental ways to embed the learning -  Master Classes, Online Programs and Fireside Chats.  You are in good hands because the ultimate test is - if  the power goes out - she can speak without slides!!

Finally, she puts her money where her mouth is, removes the risk for you and guarantees her work!
