As an eighth-grader, Aurora was a finalist in a speech contest. She didn’t win, but that just might have been the start of her career as a communicator. The co-author of “Get Picked: Tips, Tricks, and Tools for Creating an Irresistible Speaker Proposal,” global brands work with Aurora to get their message right, create communications programs that connect with customers, and develop marketing strategies that work. She has years of experience leading speaker’s bureau programs and placed hundreds of speakers at local, national, and international conferences. Aurora also coaches speakers on every aspect of the speaker life, from topic development to presentation delivery. When she’s not talking, you’ll likely find her hiking the foothills in her hometown or on the sofa watching classic movies.
