Give your audience an experience that’s…





If you want to inspire your audience to stand out in leadership, customer experience, culture, and life, let me share a simple philosophy and five-step framework that’s changing the way people show up in the world and workplace.

Red Shoes Living is a powerful, relatable, and share-worthy message that people immediately apply and never forget. It’s a constant reminder of the ONE thing that connects us in this noisy and negative world we live in:

our humanity.

Whether you want to inspire a boardroom of executives or the attendees at your next national conference, every keynote starts with your goals in mind and is completely tailored to your audience’s needs.

Why the Red Shoes Living message inspires top ratings and standing ovations:

“I will admit that I was apprehensive that a Red Shoes Living virtual presentation would be impactful and fully engage our team. But, with 323 restaurants in 17 states (and in the middle of a pandemic), a virtual conference was our only option.

We invited Lonnie MayneTM to speak at the conference and it was far better than we ever imagined it would be. Lonnie is an engaging and accomplished speaker in person, but in the virtual presentation, he also had an incredibly strong connection to the audience because each attendee had a front-row seat.

His message is meaningful, helpful, and inspirational. He bonds with his audience without the hyped-up and forced animation that is typical of most motivational speakers. His presentation style was conversational and warm. He truly offered valuable information to the conference attendees.

I whole-heartedly recommend Lonnie and his Red Shoes Living presentation - he is impressive both in person and on a virtual platform."

“We bring in a highly rated keynote speaker each year for our annual Denny’s Franchise Association Conference. I had the chance to see Lonnie MayneTM at another conference the year before and knew we had to have him speak at our conference this year in Washington, D.C. By far, hands down, the best and favorite speaker we have had over the years.

There was a long-standing ovation and the feedback has been 100 percent positive from everyone I have spoken to that attended the conference.

Lonnie’s ability to connect with the audience is like something I have never witnessed before. He’s a gem! We also bought the Red Shoes Living book for all of our attendees as a reference reminder of the Red Shoes Living message. Every new franchisee member receives a book. I continue to refer Lonnie to everyone that asks.”

Association Executive Director & Event Manager


“With Lonnie talking about how you elevate how you show up in the world... he was so poignant, he was so differentiating. He said so many things that you know every day, but it's the way that he put it together, and how he touched people's hearts.

And I have to say, there was hardly a dry eye in the room because it really reached them deeply and it reached them personally.

It resonated with them in a way that I could hear throughout the rest of the day from the other speakers, and throughout the conversations that I had with other attendees, that it really resonated in a way that they could walk away with constructive and practical ways in how to think about how they elevate, how they show up in the world, personally and professionally. Truly, one of the best speakers of our time.”
