MonteLago Village in the Beautiful Lake Las Vegas Resort Area

April 21-22, 2022

Do you struggle to go after visibility opportunities for yourself or your business?

Do you want to level-up your speaking presence?

And do you want to “tame the butterflies” that often come up when you speak – whether that’s at the front of a room, on camera, or in high-stakes conversations?

If you answered YES to one or more of these questions, Step into Your Moxie® LIVE was designed for you!

Whether you are a/an:

If you yearn to speak up, influence, and lay track for a bigger legacy, and do it in the company of a few dozen fellow rising leaders, I want you to know… This. Is. Your. Time.

During this hands-on, super interactive, two-day event, you will clarify the ideas you want to be known for and be up on your feet to level-up your ability to communicate them.

Step into Your Moxie® LIVE fuses:

Training so you can evolve into the communicator, presenter, and thought leader you were born to be

Role Play Opportunities so you transfer what you are learning into embodied and sustainable behaviors

Community so you can build powerful relationships and be championed by other ambitious and visionary leaders who are conspiring for your success

Reflection and Action Planning to ensure your insights and achievements during the event are translated into action afterward

“I attended Alexia’s event after my friend raved about her as a speaking coach. The intimate event blew me away. Alexia can speak from her heart and, at the same time, call you out on your B.S that is not serving you.  It was fun, insightful, emotional, and I came away empowered with the knowledge to start speaking up and shining my light.  I applied what I learned, and I got a client from a referral I met at the retreat within three days!  I can’t wait to connect with Alexia and her team for her next event to soar even higher!”

During Step into Your Moxie® LIVE, you will:

We will jam at a private event space in MonteLago Village in the gorgeous Lake Las Vegas Resort Area. A quick, 20-30-minute drive from Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport, and a stone’s throw from the Las Vegas Strip, you will be able to slow down, prioritize your speaking AND self-care, and connect with other visionary entrepreneurs, business professionals, and leaders who are equally committed to shifting from best-kept secret status in their industries into respected and influential thought leaders.

Whether you want to use speaking to grow your business and platform, speak up for ideas that are important to you in the workplace, be seen as a go-to authority in your industry, or instigate positive social change by starting or scaling your movement, through a combination of my renowned speaker training, experiential group activities, and participant hot seats, you will develop the mindset, skillset, and behaviors to make “stepping into your moxie” a habit you bring with you into all facets of your life and work.

Plus…

This is NOT one of those events where you sit in your seat for a couple of days while being lectured to.

Oh. Heck. No.

As you can see from images of past events, it is a true, participant-centered speaking and coaching event where you are up on your feet, engaging in ongoing action-oriented activities, and immediately translating your learning into action and future goal setting.

Each attendee at Step into Your Moxie® LIVE will also be placed in a supportive Coaching Circle with a handful of fellow attendees and 1-2 members of my Moxielicious® Mastermind.

You will not only receive coaching and support from me, you will also be shepherded through the entire transformational event by your Coaching Circle leader(s).

Expect to work hard, play hard, laugh and possibly (okay, quite likely!) cry as you experience profound professional and personal breakthroughs that are vital for you to amplify your speaking, business/career, and thought leadership success.

Praise for Alexia Vernon and Her Programs

Dr. Lynette Willis

“Alexia is a brilliant coach, intuitive mentor and wordsmith. Really, I have NEVER seen anyone as gifted as Lex. I left with a business plan – that I’m still working 6 months later. I also made a lot of awesome relationships. If you want to level up, you have to surround yourself with people who are where you want to go – or who are on the same train heading in the same direction you want to go. And that was definitely true of the women there. Since the event, I’ve been invited and spoken at a number of conferences, online summits, and done radio interviews. And because I’m now so clear on my message and platform, each opportunity leads to more invitations – and I’m really getting known in the family and parenting space.”

Dr. Lynyetta Willis

Juju Hook

“Lex is a true professional who knows her craft as well as her industry. She’s also an empathetic, compassionate coach and mentor who creates an incredibly safe space for women to take risks and grow. During the live event in Vegas, I met a group of amazing, inspiring women, many of whom have become my friends. Lex introduced us to different aspects of speaking (and earning while doing it!), and my confidence grew exponentially. In October I gave my first talk to more than a thousand women in Nashville. I got a standing ovation, and it was one of the most fulfilling moments of my adult life. I’m 100% hooked on speaking. And I’m also 100% hooked on Lex.”

Nathalie Lussier

“Alexia is a master at bringing together an incredible group of women, pulling out their best, and helping them shape their speaking style. I was floored at the transformation she facilitated in one weekend and highly recommend her work. If you need help honing a talk, booking speaking gigs, and making speaking profitable, work with her now. You can expect to be pushed to your edge and to grow both as a speaker and business owner.”

Kathy Kortes Miller

“I initially attended one of Lex’s live event weekends and benefited immediately from her uncanny ability to ask important questions, probe deeply and stretch me as a speaker and thought leader. Working with Lex. I critically examined and refined my speaking skills and learned to hone my abilities to successfully deliver my “idea worth spreading” into a variety of forms including a TEDx talk, workshops and keynotes I have facilitated locally, nationally and internationally for renowned professional associations and business groups, and she partnered with me as I created a book proposal which was promptly picked up by a literary agent. (And I was offered representation by multiple top agents in Canada, where I live!) Working with Lex is an adventure and a gift I would highly recommend you give yourself!”

Adita Atteck

“I was initially attracted to Alexia because of her authentic and genuine presence. I instantaneously felt trust, and I knew I found a mentor that would help me refine my unique speaking style. My public speaking confidence skyrocketed after attending the live event. Alexia has a special talent in helping you identify the slightest changes in how you use words to make your message even clearer. And during The Spotlight live events (I came back!), I got to observe Alexia’s feedback to other participants and truly respect how she recognizes each person’s unique personality and delivery style. ”

Chris Darling

“Less than 6 months after joining Alexia for her live event, I pitched myself, was picked and was standing on stage delivering a TEDx talk at TEDxWilmingtonSalon. For anyone considering enrolling, know that you will NEVER find a better mentor or coach when it comes to crafting a TED-style talk, or any talk, than Alexia. She is a rare find. My confidence as a speaker has gone from zilch to…”Hey, I can really do this, AND do it well.”

“More than any other experience for my professional or personal growth, working with Alexia has blown me away from start to finish. She is incredible at what she does and her unparalleled professionalism is both inspiring and completely genuine.”

“Alexia has this uncanny ability to see straight into your core talent, and help you bring that out in a way that is unique, special and feels amazing. I’ve been coached by some “high end” coaches and had never seen this before. She cares more about her clients than any coach I’ve worked with, she’s bursting at the seams with knowledge about the speaking industry, and knows how to draw your best material out of you and help you shape it so you can put it out into the world in a way that connects with people (which drives results!). I cannot emphasize enough how valuable and life changing the opportunity to work with her is.”

“Prior to attending the live event, I felt paralyzed every time someone asked me, “What do you do?” I would literally freeze up and never knew what would come flying out of my mouth. Alexia helped me find the confidence I needed to boldly say, “I’m a writer and motivational speaker.” Those six words may sound simple, but they have transformed the way I think and feel about myself and my business, moving me into action! Rather than fearing my own voice, I now trust it and am using it to fulfill my purpose as a writer and motivational speaker!

Alexia has a magical way of marrying emotion and strategy (two things that seem to contradict each other) in a way that moves you through discomfort, and you come out the other side with a plan.

If you have a message that you believe in, and want to share it with authenticity, confidence, and purpose, you need to attend Alexia’s event. No matter where you are in your life or your business, you have a responsibility to share that message with the people who need it—just ask Lex!”
