Her Philosophy on Women

As Snowden writes in her new book, “I truly believe women are the future of the planet. With our social and emotional intelligence, ability to juggle multiple responsibilities, willingness to collaborate and find peaceful solutions, women have the innate ability to create effective social change. And since women control much of the wealth in the United States, women have the opportunity to make a huge impact.   But this can only happen if we unburden ourselves from the overload of our lives.  By liberating ourselves from overwhelm and living our dreams, we can embrace our magnificence and share our gifts with the world.”

Feedback on Snowden’s Speeches to Women

Snowden McFall- motivational speeches for women“I am still receiving rave reviews from your keynote presentation…. The women of She is Fierce loved you and your powerful, heartfelt message. …Everyone has commented on how profound and inspiring your speech was. Many spoke of how vulnerable, authentic and open you are, and how you shared so many poignant stories from your life. Your willingness to share your big mistakes and learning experiences enabled others to share theirs, and truly created a safe space for everyone… Your deeply passionate words about the fire inside each of us, and the gift each brings moved us significantly.  Snowden, thank you for an outstanding presentation which awakened our creative thinking, opened our hearts, and lifted our spirits!” Kelly Youngs, President, She is Fierce

When Mary referred you last summer, I knew you were a high quality professional speaker.  Your keynote speech…was exactly the right program for our high level nurse executives…Your highly interactive style, inspirational stories, intriguing new data on stress and dynamic approach made quite a positive impression on our members…So often leaders (especially female) have a tendency to work very long hours and not take care of themselves as well as they should.  The highly practical nature of your content, along with the immediately applicable stress management techniques, provided strategies for coping with stress that they will use long after the program. Comments like ” This was very applicable to my life.’ “Absolutely wonderful in all aspects’ were typical. Thank you.” Rita Pruzan, One NJ.

“Your keynote presentation for NAPW was outstanding…..You really spoke from the heart, sharing your lessons, mistakes, tenacity, humor  and enthusiasm.  You are a rare speaker, both genuine and insightful and willing to laugh at yourself. You demonstrate a deep interest in helping others and improving yourself…The response has been fantastic.” Karem Mieses, President, Jacksonville Chapter NAPW

“The response to your sessions at Connections was nothing short of spectacular….  Your program truly mirrored the commitment and tenacity, the spirit and courage of the successful female entrepreneur.  Your book, Fired Up! is a celebration of the perseverance exhibited by each one of us on a daily basis…a handbook for life.” Pam Patenaude, Director of Connections Conference
