Diversity & Inclusion Keynote Speaker Mallory Whitfield

Diversity & Inclusion Keynote Speaker

Hi! My name is Mallory Whitfield.

I am currently developing my book and signature keynote performance Towards Together: a vision for a kinder, more inclusive world.

I empower businesses and individuals to rediscover their authentic voice, be more compassionate to themselves, and more inclusive of others. I do this through keynote performances, workshops, retreats, personalized marketing consultations, and via my podcast, Badass Creatives.

“It was an absolute pleasure having you at iRetreat. It was honestly one of the BEST sessions we've personally attended; I learned so much about Instagram to take-away and implement immediately, and know other attendees did as well.”

I am currently developing my book and signature keynote performance, Embrace Yr Weird, which will be launching in 2019.

At this time I am available to host breakouts, workshops, and retreats on the topic of:

  • Embrace Yr Weird: Creating Kinder, More Inclusive Communities
  • Embrace Yr Weird: Cultivating Yr Authentic Voice
  • Embrace Yr Weird: Building Yr Personal Brand

I am also available as an emcee, and I work one-on-one as a marketing consultant to empower people and businesses to embrace their own brand of weird. I customize all of my programs to fit the needs of the audience.

      “Whoah, DIY SEO Bootcamp was informative! My website is relatively new, but I'm always looking to tweak, improve, and generally make things better for all of you looking at my work. If the next two sessions with Mallory Whitfield are just as informative, get ready for some great changes (and I might need another notebook!)!”
