As the founder of 4 companies, one being a private practice in psychotherapy for 25 years, I am well aware that leadership and personal development comes in many forms and styles.

In following trends of the workplace, I have also seen the power of Purpose Driven Organizations and Leaders in creating employee engagement and retention.

In addition, in working as a speaker, coach, and consultant, it has clearly been shown that the companies which have women in the C Suite are creating a higher bottom line profit percentage and a far more innovative and engaged corporate community.

Consequently, as a speaker I address the issue of developing leaders through presenting the immensely powerful impact of mindset and communication skills on effectiveness, power, and authenticity. Combining all these with mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and strong values, as shown in my presentations and you will always have leaders who will be transforming your company in the best way possible.

Randye is known as the Happiness Simplifier. Years of study into the “happiness movement” left her frustrated at the lack of humor there– and its needless complexity. As a result, she created the program and upcoming book Happier Made Simple.

With years of experience as a morning radio personality and actress, Randye knows how to think on her feet and help your event go smoothly and happily as live host, MC, or announcer. She also provides acclaimed motivational keynotes, leads fun and interactive workshops and is a fun and productive live auctioneer.

On the more serious side, Randye speaks frequently as Mental Health Activist to groups of doctors, nurses, medical students, families, providers, and legislators regarding the family experience when mental illness hits. She is a published author (Ben Behind His Voices: One Family’s Journey from the Chaos of Schizophrenia to Hope), Family-to-Family teacher/trainer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and diversity trainer with the Anti-Defamation League.

Randye uses her vast experience in radio, improvisational acting, voiceover and theatre to teach and inspire in educational and corporate environments. She brings words to life not only in her presentations, but as a prolific audiobook narrator.
