Today, I’m so excited to be sharing with you a talk from my Speaker’s Salon Showcase!


Each year, I curate the Speaker Salon in New York City to give speakers an incubator to work on their craft. They take the stage each week and receive live direction on their content, performance, and blocking. This experience culminates in a live, fully produced showcase featuring every Salon member.


This Showcase talk from Dr. Wayne Pernell is called “Deconstructing Presence – How Personal Archaeology Serves Authenticity.”


Dr. Pernell, known as The Exponential Success Coach, is a highly sought speaker, Amazon #1 International Best-Selling Author, blogger, and podcast host. He holds a doctorate in clinical psychology and has over three decades of experience in helping accomplished leaders do the things they have put off for years — without giving up the success that got them there. 


Dr. Pernell is the founder and president of DynamicLeader®, Inc. He is a member of the Forbes Business Council, a two-time TEDx Speaker, and has been featured in the Television series SpeakUp. He is regularly seen on NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, and The CW, as well as heard on radio and podcasts around the world.


In his talk, he explores:

  • What happens when you give up who you are in order to be the leader you think you’re supposed to be

  • The importance of authentic leadership and what it requires

  • How to become clear on your personal values and be true to who you are

  • His own journey to authentic leadership
