In a society where everything is “filtered” to seem perfect in our online worlds – students are experiencing real-life issues and don’t know how to cope. What would happen to our groups if we made relationships more important than taking the right pictures? What would happen to our world if we focused on authentically connecting to those around us? It takes skill. It takes practice. It takes awareness. Hailey is on a mission to teach this message everywhere.

From Selfies to Self-Awareness: Authentic Connection in a Digital World
Technology is moving at the speed of lightning in our culture today. Experts say it was created to “connect” us all deeper. While that may be true, could it be possible that the very thing that was created to help us “connect” is drifting us further and further away from true fulfillment? Students today are experiencing higher levels of anxiety, attention deficit, and depression than ever before and there IS a solution: true authentic connection.
Because of our online, digital lives; we live in a world that has drastically changed how we connect and communicate with another human being.
We text instead of call.
We take a picture instead of fully enjoying the moment.
We get distracted right before we can make a meaningful connection.
We want things instantly before we can learn from the progress that it takes to get there.
In a society where everything is “filtered,” Hailey brings awareness to this silent addiction of technology and helps each student find the refreshing feeling of being connected in real-life and in real-time.
Students will walk away with tangible ways they can use the skill of human connection to; recruit new members, branch out and build new relationships, discover the joy of being present, and make a lasting positive impact in the world.

- how to experience true authentic connection within themselves and how to have a lasting influence in other people’s lives.

Perfectionism Stops Progress: Making Your Imperfections Necessary
Perfectionism is fear dressed up in high heels. It looks pretty on the outside, but on the inside it’s completely uncomfortable and unattainable. Yet, the majority of students today continuously chase after this unrealistic expectation of themselves and it’s destroying their confidence deeply. Especially now, the Internet doesn’t sleep, so the temptation to compare against their peers is stronger than ever. They must be able to cultivate healthy belief systems around THEIR own personal journeys so that they are prepared for whatever life may bring them.
Students, as high-performers and ambitious leaders, need to disregard perfectionism and instead, cultivate consistent progress. It’s amazing to have high aspirations and goals, but students must learn to work with their fears and become conscious of the thoughts that keep them stuck in “I’m never good enough or ready” mode.
After working with thousands of young adults, Hailey noticed distinct patterns and triggers around perfectionism and shares these findings in this engaging and eye-opening keynote. Students will learn how to work WITH their imperfections and make them a necessary part of their unique journey towards becoming their best Self.
As a result of attending this program, students will learn:
- the four deadly traps of perfectionism, how to notice the signs, and how to avoid them in the future
- effective tools to stop comparing yourself to others and instead, aim for personal satisfaction and individual success.
- the number one thing that is feeding your perfection food supply and how to cut off it’s resources.
