Today’s show is another in a series of bonus episodes, each featuring one of the amazing talks given by my participants in the Speaker Salon Showcase.


Twice a year, I curate the Speaker’s Salon live in New York City to give speakers a safe place, an incubator to work on their craft, and it has become so much more. These speakers have become the go-to in thought leadership along with becoming a community of authentic, heart-centered communicators who are having a massive impact.


These episodes give you a peek behind the scenes to witness the powerful talks they present at the showcase to influencers and decision makers who are seeking to put them on big stages.


This week’s episode features Marisa Zalabak and her talk, “Stardust and the Uniqueness of Human Potential.”


Marisa Zalabak, international and TEDx speaker, educational psychologist, coach, and author, specializes in social-emotional and creative intelligences, organizational culture, and AI ethics. Open Channel Culture founder, her passion is supporting adaptive leadership and reimagining education, exploring the potential for human flourishing into the future with curiosity, optimism, creativity, and joy.


In this talk, she explores:

  • Humanity’s largest untapped resource
  • Why, despite our uniqueness, we still tend to focus identifying ways to be the same
  • Where innovation and new solutions come from
  • Embracing your own individuality and appreciating the unique abilities of others
