Let's talk about visibility and voice. 📣
Here are a few of the ways I work with companies and individuals.
Talks + Trainings 🎙
Healthy pride is good for business. So is investing in under-represented voices.
I teach people how to self-promote (a.k.a., Brag Better™) so that they can be more effective leaders.
I speak and train at universities, brands, and corporations. Recent keynotes include Google, Meta, Capital One, Bloomberg, Microsoft, and Intel.
Executive Coaching 💪
Most people work too hard on the product and not hard enough on the presentation.
Working together 1:1 will help you transform how you see yourself and communicate your value to get the recognition you deserve.
Publishing Strategy 📚
I lead quarterly masterminds in small groups with high-level leaders to write a book proposal that sells.
You'll learn how to navigate the publishing industry and write a polished proposal that publishers and agents will love.

Brag Better tip: let other people brag for you!
I've trained thousands of people on self-advocacy to transform lives and careers. Here's what people are saying about working with me.
"Participating in the Brag Better Bootcamp was one of the best decisions I've made for my professional life. As a result of working with Meredith, I learned the tools to be a more confident, polished, professional version of myself."
“Your keynote was our highest rated talk at the event – the feedback was awesome, and I personally found it really helpful to learn from you about how bragging better is a team sport. When I show up in this way for my colleagues, I know how to ask them to do the same for me.”
"Your book has helped me transform the way I view myself, to be able to stand in my full authentic self-worth. So much so that in the past month I have been able to transition into my dream job and negotiate the salary I know I’m worth."
Along with my writing and speaking work, I’ve cultivated a successful career as a freelance writer for over 16 years, with columns and bylines in outlets including Harvard Business Review, Forbes, FastCompany, The Washington Post, Inc, Elle, Shondaland, Marie Claire, Entrepreneur, and more. In 2018, I collaborated on the book Microtrends Squared with The New York Times best-selling author Mark Penn. The book explores the next wave of trends reshaping the future of business, politics, and culture.
