Julie Menden

Business Coach, Keynote Speaker, Podcast, Trainer

LOCATION - Richfield, Wisconsin

Julie is the founder of a boutique coaching and training firm specializing in helping leaders and teams increase their confidence in their presence, influence, and communication skills. Using her experience working in corporate talent development, along with her extensive experience as a certified coach, speaker, and facilitator, Julie activates leaders and teams to accelerate their success. As the host of the It Starts With You podcast, a contributing author in the book Peak Performance: Mindset Tools for Leaders, and a high-energy speaker, Julie helps leaders and organizations “get out of the box” they might have put themselves in to realize all they are capable of. Fun Fact: After doing the “fire walk” at a Tony Robbins event in 2019 (yes, actually walking over hot coals!), Julie realized how incredibly powerful our minds are and what we can do when we work on our mental fitness.

"This is the second event where we've asked Julie to help develop our participants, and it won't be the last! She breaks down tough leadership skills into easy-to-understand messages and steps that are tangible and immediately applicable. I'm already looking forward to the next opportunity to work with Julie again!"
