Wakeman holds a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation from the National Speaker’s Association, placing her within the top 3% of speakers. She’s a regular contributor on Forbes.com, Success.com, The Huffington Post, and Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global. In 2018, she was voted both Top 100 Leadership Experts to follow on Twitter and #10 on the Global Guru’s list of Top 30 Leadership Professionals.

Wakeman has published three books, the latest of which is No Ego: How to Cut the Cost of Drama, End Entitlement and Drive Big Results (2017). Cy also hosts her own No Ego podcast, a Facebook Watch show, Life’s Messy, Live Happy, and adds weekly video content on YouTube to address leaders’ biggest challenges in the workplace.

I really loved how each portion of the conference was different. For example: more of a workshop, then networking, then one-on-one interview format, then panel. I appreciated the diversity of the format.

-2019 Conference Attendee

I think more than anything, I left ready to tackle some big goals. It gave me the push I needed to get started on some goals and helped me connect with local female business women.

-2019 Conference Attendee

It was a great confidence builder. I left with additional knowledge on how to address conversations and get results.
