Opening Up For Brave Conversations - with Elisabeth Cardiello and Jason Grenci
Elisabeth was probably the only six year old in Brooklyn with her own business cards. After college, business school and a four year stint in the finance industry, this native New Yorker dealt with loss, found herself and her passion, more loss, learned the meaning of post traumatic growth and embraced her pull to create. She started Caffè Unimatic, the coffee company that you may recognize from the Netflix documentary “Coffee For All.” She’s the co-founder of Legacy Out Loud, an educational platform and methodology designed to build confidence and resilience in young women. And most recently, she brought the two together and is the host of Brave Conversations Over Coffee®, an leadership development workshop series that’s half coffee tasting and half communication training to inspire transformational bravery in communication (to support real connection, creativity, leadership and mental health) in companies, at colleges and in the community. She’s always believed that she ended up in the world of coffee to use the global platform to make a bigger difference and now she’s using it to foster human connection. She’s a two time TEDx speaker, has spoken at UN conferences, given keynotes, Congressional briefings and when you hear the way she talks about coffee and it’s power to be a catalyst for change, she will inspire you to be more intentional about your most consistent morning ritual. Her family is still wondering where that shy 9-year-old went...

YOU ARE NOT TOO MUCH: Giving Yourself Permission to Own Your Desires with Jeanette LeBlanc
Jeanette spent most of her life working very hard to be a good girl. One day she woke up and decided to write her way out of her own life - things haven’t been the same since. Single mama to two ridiculously unruly daughters, Jeanette believes in the smooth honey burn of whiskey, the crashing of mama ocean, pencil skirts, vintage band tees and fringed boots, the kinship of the wild wolf, walking for miles in unfamiliar cities, that the burn down always precedes the rise, the singular power of dark red lipstick and the necessity of putting out for the muse on the regular. Oh yea - and that sometimes our stories are the only things that can save us.
