Challenge: I received a call from a client whose management team was feeling the effects of COVID. They wanted to get the team back together and excited again. In the client’s words “Our office had become stagnant… (Thank you Covid!)”. They wanted to jumpstart their organization’s success, shake things up … with something completely different.
Solution: These unusual times required unusual solutions! Enter Lynn O’Dowd’s “Unleash Your Inner Superstar” keynote with an appearance by Lady Gaga!
The client wanted to reintroduce FUN back into the workplace and the results that come from it. Not only do fun experiences promote learning, but fun, laughter and humor in the workplace is critically important in uniting everyone and moving a team forward. As Inc. states “A boatload of science shows that teams that laugh more, perform better.”
In my keynote, not only did we cover setting outrageous goals and stepping out of your comfort zone for greater success, but we did it in an outrageously fun way by clapping, singing, and dancing together on stage. I include music/entertainment in my keynote as it speaks directly to the heart and soul without filtering through mental chatter. Did you know research shows that happiness leads to success, not the other way around.
Outcomes/Benefits: Here’s the feedback I received from the client:
“Thanks so much for being the Keynote Speaker at our Team Day event. You were a breath of fresh air in a stale climate! (Thank you Covid!) We needed your enthusiasm, words of wisdom, advice, and passion.
Our office had become stagnant, and you helped to “supercharge” us!!! As you know the audience was 50/50 – males to females. It was interesting to get their reactions – 100% had positive feedback! Everyone took away something good to use in their arsenal.
Our office now seems more normal, energized, and eager to step out of their comfort zone and move forward. This is a win-win situation for all of us!
Again, thank you for being the catalyst to bringing out the “Inner Superstars” of our company!!!”

Are you booking speakers for your group or meeting? After not singing for 35 years, – in a moment of madness – I answered an ad to be a singer in a Rock’n’Roll band… and got the gig. I share my story about how stepping out of my comfort zone and getting a little outrageous has changed my life.
I want everyone I reach to experience the same transformation through the “GoGaGaTM” process I’ve developed to help attendees Unleash THEIR “Inner Superstar” and realize that it’s never too late to bust through their fears to perform at levels they never thought possible. My talk takes people from “I can’t” to “I can” in 45 to 60 minutes – with my special brand of entertainment with a message.
