I’m not a perfect person and that’s precisely the reason I do the work I do. I’ve tried and failed and learned and tried again and made mistakes and learned from those too. The purpose of this work isn’t perfection (which is a huge relief), it’s progress. It’s taking the next step in the right direction.
My aim is to help people hold themselves accountable, remain resilient and recognize what’s truly important in their lives. I’m dedicated to helping people close the gap between who they are and who they want to be.
I'm a coach, writer and a speaker and have been training and facilitating in a professional capacity for over seven years, beginning with corporate talks on brand ethics, company values, and leadership, and later moving into interpersonal sessions with groups and individuals. If I had a superpower it would be my ability to take big, sometimes intimidating concepts and ideas and break them down into something accessible and tangible (if you’d asked me, I would have preferred teleportation). When I'm not working, I spend much of my time reading, asking people if I can pet their dogs and struggling to keep my succulents alive. I'm currently based in Vancouver, BC, unceded Coast Salish territory.
I wholeheartedly believe this world would be a much better place if we were all more willing to share the learning that we’ve lived, and it’s my intention to do just that.
Meghan Talks began with me facing my own struggles, and emerging from them with a desire to share the hard-fought lessons I had learned. You can read more about that here.
Not only do I give literal talks, through writing and workshops I create space to talk about the hard, uncomfortable parts of life. By talking, by sharing, by engaging in discourse we create the opportunity for safe, tethered exploration of the parts of life that challenge us. The places that we avoid until we’re forced there by circumstances beyond our control.
If we’re willing to talk about those places, what we’ve learned and gleaned and discovered there, they become a little less daunting. Life itself becomes a little less daunting (still scary, but, you know, doable).
