We all have the desire to belong, to connect. And in the age of social media, making personal connections has been more challenging than ever.

Millennials and Zoomers tend to have high anxiety at the thought of meeting new people and often fumble during in-person relationships. They struggle to connect, don’t know how to make friends, and subsequently flounder in workplace relationships. Sound familiar? But relationship expert and media personality Rachel DeAlto knows that it doesn’t have to be that way. Everyone can be likable. Everyone can be confident. And anyone can achieve this authentically.

With a fresh, fun, and humorous tone, relatable provides a step-by-step guide that will take you from socially awkward to awesome. You will finally feel more comfortable in social and professional settings so you can let your true character shine as you form lasting, authentic, and meaningful connections with everyone in the room.

We loved Rachel and had all positive feedback from our crowd. Multiple students said her message was “exactly what they needed to hear,” so we are glad she was such a good fit. She was super easy to communicate with and gave her 150% efforts to make it to our event despite the inclement weather, which we greatly appreciate. We would love to recommend Rachel to others!

Relationships and connection not only lead to success – they lead to happiness and contentment! We are all hard-wired with a desire to connect to others, yet we’ve never been more disconnected.

A 2014 study on friendship found that one in four people have zero friends. Not a single person they would consider sharing their concerns with. It was one in ten just 20 years ago. A survey of almost 50,000 college students found that 64% felt “very lonely”. Depression and suicide rates are rising in tandem with our decline in socialization.

The impact is affecting the job market as well. 60% of employers say that applicants don’t have the interpersonal skills necessary for jobs.

Social skills. People skills. Connection.

They make us happier and more successful. And it’s time we give them the effort due.

We create a false image through social media, we let our limiting beliefs get in the way of stepping outside of our comfort zone, and we fear rejection. The result? Ineffective leadership, loneliness, and stress.

Whether you are looking to improve your leadership skills, increase your social circle meaningfully, or ace your upcoming interviews, Relatable will prepare you with the updated tools you need to “win friends and influence people”.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending the program, students will learn:

  • how to become a magnetic leader, friend, and colleague,
  • why being yourself isn’t only good enough, it’s your superpower, and
  • how to build connections to reduce stress and increase your success
Unmasking Leadership

In a world where we all seem to wear a limitless number of masks (or Instagram filters), it is easy to hide behind false identity. The world doesn’t have to be a masquerade. It’s time that we unmask the power of authenticity and vulnerability. Everyone has a story. Everyone has struggles, insecurities, and flaws. What if we all recognized the power in sharing our truths rather than painting a picture of perfection? The best leaders inspire as they draw from a well of strength and humility that comes from the confidence of being comfortable with oneself – flaws and all.

Through this program, your students will learn how you can connect with others and reach your greatest potential through self-awareness, vulnerability, and confidence in being exactly who you are. Relationship expert, attorney, and entrepreneur may be the titles that Rachel DeAlto wears but in this presentation she will unmask personal struggles AND triumphs which helped her achieve her success. She will engage students with her humor and heart, helping to create a vehicle for the development of empowered leaders throughout your campus.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending the program, students will learn:

  • how to understand the power of vulnerability and authenticity,
  • how to ask for help and encourage teamwork,
  • the importance of embracing weaknesses and past mistakes with confidence and strength, and
  • how to overcome fears connected with being vulnerable.

Dating, sex, and relationships are an important aspect of the college social experience. From crushes and flirty Snapchats to first loves and breakups – romantic relationships are a rollercoaster of emotions and life lessons. Because the quality of our relationships has a direct impact on almost every area of our life – including self-esteem, stress levels, and productivity – we need to choose and foster relationships carefully.

By sharing her years of experience and expertise, relationship expert Rachel DeAlto creates a comfortable space for discussion with helpful information that students can’t get from another college-aged friend or Buzzfeed article. She explains how everyone deserves to have healthy relationships. While they aren’t always easy, there is never an excuse for violence or abuse.

Healthy relationships are built on a foundation of self-worth within each person, and respect for one another. Unfortunately, violence and disrespect are currently very common in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships. In fact, 1 in 5 college women will experience violence in a relationship during college. It’s time for that to change, and it starts from within.

In this keynote, Rachel helps students assess the health of their relationships both with themselves and with others, allowing them to take control of their happiness and prevent unnecessary pain. Rachel utilizes personal stories of overcoming heartbreak and low self-esteem, coupled with motivation and necessary humor, to empower students to make smart choices that allow them to feel safe and confident in their relationships.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending this program, students will learn:

  • what expectations they should set to build healthy relationships,
  • how to spot the warning signs of abusive or unhealthy relationships with themselves and/or others,
  • tips on how to build self-esteem, and
  • how to prevent potentially toxic relationships.
Fall in Love…With You!

We start out as babies, loving ourselves unconditionally. As time goes on, we allow external influences to get in the way of how awesome we think we are. College students are no exception to this, and many times have negative views of themselves. What if you’re not smart enough? Not attractive enough? Not athletic enough? Rachel DeAlto helps students understand that there’s much more to be proud of than external characteristics.

This interactive keynote brings back the love – for yourself! Rachel has coached hundreds of clients and shares thoughtful, humorous, real-life stories to help illustrate important learning lessons for student audiences. Learn how to build unstoppable confidence, make yourself a priority and make sure everyone around you knows just how amazing you truly are!

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending the program, students will learn:

  • how to create more self-love and appreciation by building more confidence and positive self-image,
  • ways to make themselves a high priority by setting and maintaining boundaries, and
  • techniques to overcome personal fears and bringing out their individual talents and gifts.
