Inspirational Keynote Speaker

A talented keynote speaker, Wendy H. Steele is inspirational, dynamic, relatable, and ready to connect with your audience to encourage action and build a culture of generosity.

Wendy’s Speaking Topics

Wendy shares her expertise and experiences through energetic talks covering several topics, including building a culture of generosity, bridging generational differences, and empowering you and your audience to greater action.

Building a Culture of Generosity

Creating a culture of generosity is an inexpensive solution that brings measurable results. Organizations that give and encourage generosity enjoy the benefits of a more empathetic and ethical staff, increased creativity and confidence, and higher reported job satisfaction.

In Building a Culture of Generosity, Wendy demonstrates the very real power of generosity, including tangible organizational and personal benefits. Then, she breaks down the process of building generosity practices into your life and work.

Bridging the Generational Divide

Including your children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews in your giving doesn’t just help them to become more generous adults—it brings benefits today. Children who give back have higher levels of self-esteem and are more optimistic, less likely to be depressed, and less likely to have suicidal thoughts.

In Bridging the Generational Divide, Wendy provides relatable examples and lays out the framework for making authentic connections across age gaps and philosophical differences through a shared love of giving.

Empowering YOU

The Empowering YOU keynote address is Wendy at her inspirational best as a speaker, as she unpacks actionable ways to shift your mindset from worrying about the problems facing our communities to taking action to help solve them. 

This shift in mindset brings optimism and connection, feeds hope, and opens up new possibilities. You will feel empowered to make the world a better place and live the very best version of yourself—no matter the latest news.

Invitation to Impact

A deeply inspirational talk, Invitation to Impact is a keynote that taps into Wendy’s personal story as an unlikely founder of a global giving movement that began with some notes in a spiral notebook. 

You will learn the roadmap Wendy followed to bring Impact100 to life and receive clear, actionable guidance for bringing your big idea center stage. Always authentic, Wendy shares both her successes and the mistakes along the way, revealing the reality of her “overnight success.”

“I was enamored with the Impact100 model from the first time I read about it in a magazine. I joined my local Impact100 shortly thereafter and became deeply involved right away. Attending the 2016 Impact100 Global Conference gave me my first opportunity to hear Wendy speak. Her enthusiasm, knowledge and relatability were clearly apparent. She was able to spread that inspiration throughout the attendees. I left the conference with the confidence to lead my local Impact100 the next year and knew I also had established a long-term connection. I’ve heard Wendy speak many times since then, always with that same motivating inspiration and would recommend her highly.”
