"Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway" - John Wayne said it and Ashley Alderson lived it.

In 2007, Ashley, then Andrews, became the first lady of professional rodeo as Miss Rodeo America 2007.  On the road for 320 days out of 2007, Ashley traveled as an ambassador not only for the sport of rodeo, but for her home state of North Dakota and for the life lived in rural America.  While Ashley's story graced newspapers and magazines nationwide, it was her real story which began that year prior as Ashley was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, cancer of the lymph nodes.  It was her positive attitude, free spirit and determination that helped her manage six months of chemotherapy while reigning as Miss Rodeo North Dakota that gave her the grit to become Miss Rodeo America.  Ashley's presentation inspires hope, determination and appreciation for life in the comfort of North Dakota.  You will leave with a whole new outlook on how a sense of humor can get you through life's many challenges.

Because her work involved grief care, some topics were 15 minute specific (emotions when we suffer loss: anger, guilt, fear; dealing with feeling overwhelmed; handling holidays, even pet loss) and other could last an hour. (Grief in general - coping mechanisms, etc.) Usually the groups requesting a speaker had a particular topic they were interested in.

My program is composed of three different, get powerful parts, the first of which is my introduction. I usually prefer to greet the audience in an enthusiastic and high-energy manner. The crowd will usually become talkative as I encourage them to greet those people around them. The next portion of my performance is reserved for speaking. Usually organizations will request that I speak on a certain topic, but periodically I will be asked to use my own discretion. The topics that I choose from range from those that are educational to those that are focused on motivation. Regardless of the topic, the message is clear, clean, and creative. The last portion of my performance is powerful! I use a mix of music to create a mood that inspires me as I draw. The audience watches as a beautiful picture unfolds. They are changed as they realize the meaning that it has for them individually.

Teresa Lewis is a nationally recognized motivational speaker, author, and radio personality whose work impacts hundreds of thousands of people each month. Her engaging and dynamic keynote speeches leave you laughing, dreaming and energized to live your life by design. She is a morning show co-host on Life 97.9. Her company, Get Inspired, helps individuals and organizations get better results by picturing new possibilities, elevating leaders to new heights and employing the art of accountability. She provides inspiration to audiences of all sizes. Teresa is also a certified speaker with The 7 Mindsets -- the mindsets that are proven to lead to happiness and success. Prior to launching her own business in 2007, she worked in the corporate world for 20 years, primarily in human resources. Teresa's mission is to make a positive and profound impact on the world and she inspires her audiences to do the same.

KEYNOTE OVERVIEWS:

Life by Design


In a world full of complexity, competing demands and occasional chaos, it can be tempting to go through the motions of life and work in order to just get through it. Teresa uses the metaphor of a shade lowering on our lives as we experience unfulfilled dreams, disappointments and failure. Eventually we have a limited view of what’s possible.

This session helps “raise the shade” to picture new possibilities and reignite the sparks of purpose and passion. This session is based on Teresa’s book, Life by Design. You’ll relate to her stories and her journey and benefit from the lessons she’s learned along the way. After this session, you’ll be inspired to live and work more intentionally knowing you can make a positive impact every day.

The 7 Mindsets for Success

If everyone wants to be happy and successful, why do so many people settle and never realize their full potential? A multi-year, multi-million dollar study gives us the answer; researchers found there are 7 mindsets that contribute to happiness and success. The surprising reality is that most people think in direct opposition to these mindsets. These mindsets can positively impact job satisfaction, engagement, productivity and even workplace safety. Embracing these mindsets can have a dramatic impact in your professional and personal life. This highly engaging and inspiring session is based on The 7 Mindsets to Live Your Ultimate Life by Scott Shickler and Jeff Waller.  

Leadership from Within; Re-igniting the Passion

We all have numerous leadership roles; at work, at home, in our communities and in service organizations. Add the demands of a world with increasing complexity and uncertainty and it’s easy to become overwhelmed. With so many priorities competing for our time, how can we be inspired to lead and be effective role models in all areas of life? Learn how in this interactive presentation and leave refreshed and ready to tackle challenges!

"My organization has partnered with Teresa since 2013. We are a coaching and presentation company and are very selective in our process of identifying partners, especially those we ask to do keynote presentations and run our various workshops and camps. Teresa is clearly among the best we have. In the programs she has delivered for us, the feedback has been amazing. Her programs are insightful and her material is highly relevant. Her presentation style is interactive, engaging, and thorough. She comes across extremely approachable, knowledgeable, and relaxed. She has been an invaluable partner to us in effectively spreading our message and someone with whom we hope to partner for many years. I strongly recommend any organization seeking a powerful message with inspiring results to consider Teresa. She will impact your organization and she is a top notch person to do business with."

Expect hysterically funny comedy and mesmerizing Spanish guitar playing in Gordy's stand-up musical comedy show.  From Rogaine to Road Kill, from the pitfalls of parenting to the process of aging gracefully (or not), from the birth of a baby to the demise of the 8-track tape, Gordy's family friendly comedy is guaranteed to make you laugh, make you cry . . . make you laugh so hard you cry.

Called the "Victor Borge of the Guitar," Gordy's unique performance style brings laughter to music and music to laughter.  Gordy mesmerizes audiences as he plays Bach and Bluegrass in the same breath, Mozart on "12 cups of good, strong cowboy coffee," and a foot-stomping turn of "Classical Gas".

A veteran entertainer, extraordinary guitarist, comedy writer and published songwriter, Gordy has performed his stand-up musical comedy show as The Original Fabulous ONE GUY for hundreds of corporations, associations, and other organizations, large and small.  Gordy also does a full-length concert, performed throughout the United States, and a historical show: "Seth Bullock: The Spirit of the West".  He has appeared on ABC's Good Morning America, where he sang "Days of '76", an original song from his "Seth Bullock" show, and opened for Kenny Chesney, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Beach Boys and many more.

Gordy studied music and classical guitar at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY: the Royal College of Music in London; and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.  He has produced several CDs which can be purchased through his website.

While sitting around the campfire in North Dakota, I realized history was before me and that I was the only writer, author, journalist and photographer on the trail recording their 21st century historic reenactment. After years of interviews, research, writing and rewriting, and reviewing by descendants, historians, and editors, THE RIVER CALLS finally hits the press. My goal is to share the real raw history in the words of Lewis and Clark and the reenactors who walked in their path 200 years later showing you the similarities, challenges and dedication of true adventurists while enticing you to travel the Lewis and Clark trail with your families. See you on the Trail! We proceed on … as … THE RIVER CALLS

A Christian motivational talk anchored with humor and my love for God! We can make life good by the way we choose to see it and live it.

It is so much harder to get out of the pit than to keep a safe distance away! Let me share "my story" with you and work on together keeping God in our hearts.

Have you ever fallen in "The Pit" from a life changing ordeal? Did you cry out to our Lord? Did you try decorating the pit since there wasn't any decorating down there what so ever?

STAY Away from "The Pit". It is so much harder to get out than to keep a safe distance away!

God will not forsake us. He will help to get our passion and joy back. I will "passionately" give you many decorating tips.  It all has to do with balance and color, not how much you spend!

Remember: JOY is NOT just a feeling . . . it is a commitment!!

The Kids on the Block program uses an entertaining and educational medium of puppetry to teach children about social concerns, mental health issues and disability awareness. Lively and upbeat scripts create an environment of open communication for both children and adult audiences. Each performance concludes with a question and answer period with the audience asking questions directly of the puppets. During this time, myths and misconceptions are replaced with facts and sensitivity.
