I GET the opportunity to stand on stages all over the world and share my stories and my passion. I NEVER TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.

It’s one thing to entertain a group of people. It’s another to inspire. I try really hard to be one of those rare speakers who does both.

Since 1989, I've traveled around the country educating audiences that range from housewives and college students to CEOs. I've helped thousands of businesses build their brands and create successful working cultures. Past clients include:

- Southwest Airlines
- McDonald's
- Women Network
- John Paul Mitchell Systems
- Vidal Sassoon
- The Irvine Company
For Rent magazine
- Chalene Johnson’s "Camp Do More"

- Children's Miracle Network Foundation

- Hyatt Hotels & Resorts
- Intercoiffure
- International Beauty Show (IBS)
- Professional Beauty Association
- 4-Time Host of North American Hairstyling Awards
- Premiere Orlando
- Canadian Hairdresser

- California Women's Conference
... and many others!

Why do giants in their industries call on me to train and motivate their people? They say it’s because I'm energetic and passionate about providing concrete tools for making change. They also say my sense of humor and rapport with audiences creates enthusiasm and momentum to help businesses get motivated and focused for success. I’m committed to bringing out the leader in everyone, empowering both employers and employees to create unbeatable teamwork and produce unstoppable motivation. I’m passionate about providing a fun, feel-good experience that improves productivity and increases your bottom line.

You know those nights when your eyes are wide open and your mind is going 100 mph? It may be because you don't have balance in your life.

In today's success-driven world, we often place unreasonable demands on our workloads.

It's impossible to dedicate 100% of your life to your career. Yes, you're a professional individual, but you're also a physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual being.

Happiness comes from the balance between all five:

Balance = Self-Esteem = Happiness = Niceness

You'll leave this seminar with a customized vision for your personal and business growth, and you'll learn:

  • What real abundance is all about
  • How to find your passion
  • How to avoid burnout and stay consistently motivated
  • How to work on your “back bone” rather than your “wish bone”
  • How the Law of Attraction can work for you
  • How to divorce yourself from garbage programming
  • How to find mentors and support to keep you on track


Leadership is not a position; it's a mindset and an attitude. Job titles, roles, and pay scales don't matter—every employee needs leadership skills. In BE NICE LEADERSHIP, Winn shares proven systems to empower everyone to be more inspiring and engaging—skills that make attractive leaders. The company that embraces a BE NICE leadership approach will increase staff morale, improve customer service, and increase profits.


Can you imagine a company with a motto of "BE MEAN"? Of course not! But the absence of a BE NICE culture where people feel safe and included will, by default, create a mean one. Without a healthy culture, people show up for one thing only: a paycheck. To bring out the best of everyone in your company and offer service with a smile, give your team something to smile about. You'll learn

  • How successful organizations create their cultures
  • The processes you need to create your own
  • How any workplace can become the type of place where clients and staff want to belong.
