Speaking & Hosting

“Anyone who brings Ciara in to do a workshop will easily get triple the value of what they spend. She is incredibly adept at identifying the needs of her audience and creates an experience that is unique and memorable. Expect nothing but powerful growth for you and your company.” – Producer, Entrepreneurs’ Conference

My favorite part of what I do is sharing what I’ve learned about smart strategy. I am constantly creating new content and I welcome opportunities to connect with new audiences.

As a guest expert or speaker, I break down the most important elements of modern marketing strategy, entrepreneurship, goal setting, PR best practices, and proactive career creation. I present the big picture while staying relevant with concepts that can immediately be put to action in the real world. And thanks to years as a professional performer, I’m comfortable in front of groups of any size, whether hosting, teaching, or fielding audience questions.

Drop me a line about your event and let’s make some magic.
