Speaker Biography

Melissa Forziat is a speaker, consultant, and a former competitive gymnast who parlayed her experience as an athlete into Olympic-level opportunities in her career.  And it all started with a doughnut.
In her “Take the Doughnut” talk, Melissa shares how to go after what you want and design your destiny. Her own career started with dream jobs at the Torino and Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, the New Zealand Rugby World Cup, and customizing a position for herself with the US Olympic Committee in Colorado Springs.
In 2012, Melissa accidentally began her own business and learned the power of tailoring a client base. She has worked with clients ranging from small nonprofits to national events such as the Asian Hall of Fame, and she has inspired hundreds of audiences worldwide.
One of her self-proclaimed biggest accomplishments was returning to New Zealand – where she used to live – as a professional speaker to do her first international talk for the Bed & Breakfast Association New Zealand.

 Title of Presentation

Take the Doughnut: How to Go After What You Want

 Summary of Presentation

Have you missed an opportunity in life, because you didn’t go for it?  Are you missing one right now?
Whatever it is you want, you are more likely to get it if you do something about it.  You can design the life you desire, and it all starts with going after what you want – not sitting back and letting it pass you by!
So why can it be so difficult to take action? When that thing you want is a dream without a plan, or it lives in the land of “when I have time,” “maybe someday,” “that couldn’t REALLY happen for me,” or “I don’t deserve it,” how do you start to move forward?
Together, let’s stare what you want straight in the eye, call it by name, and begin to make it happen.
Melissa combines personal stories, interactive questions, and humor to inspire you to #TaketheDoughnut and go after what you want.

Learning Objectives
Participants should gain an increased awareness and understanding of:

    • How to identify action-stopping thoughts
    • Discovering simple ways to pitch more effectively.
