Refreshingly Frank - Melbourne

Refreshingly Frank

How to speak up, speak the truth, say what's on your mind, with care and compassion. Christine McDougall

News Flash!
“I never had sex with that woman!”
“We are invading Iraq because of the weapons of mass destruction they have.”
“You can’t handle the truth!”

We can handle the truth and it is time we did. It’s time to speak the truth, demand the truth, and be prepared for the truth, ugly and as inconvenient as it may be.

We need to speak about the situations we have got ourselves in, both at home and in the geopolitical world, with the relief of truth.

Wouldn’t it be music to your ears to hear one of our leaders say, “I screwed up. I got this wrong.” And then not defend or justify themselves, but instead move on to more powerful choices and solutions.

In this keynote, Christine takes a difficult subject and interjects some levity, without ever shirking the seriousness of the topic.

Sharing some entertaining anecdotes about truth or lack of, highlighting some of the reasons why we don’t, won’t or can’t speak up.

Refreshingly Frank will entertain, stimulate and inspire you.
