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:

“Having been associated with a National group of highly successful commercial real estate professionals on both a local and National level, I have had the distinct pleasure of hearing many great speakers over the past 15 years. Those speakers have included international business leaders, famous athletes, authors, politicians, and motivational speakers.

The consensus was that Lonnie’s very insightful and moving presentation made him the best and most impactful speaker that we have ever had.

Many of us agreed that his insights into everyday life and human relationships, if practiced, will make each of us better, and most likely more successful individuals. It’s almost impossible to hear Lonnie’s message and not be moved toward positive change .”

“I’ve attended many conferences and leadership training in my 22 year career. Last Fall, at PRMI’s National Conference, I finally walked away from a keynote speaker in awe. Lonnie Mayne’s Red Shoes Living presentation not only touched me, but every person in the room. It was such a simple message but we felt it so deeply.

I remember walking out of the room thinking, “Wow, the world would be a better place if they all just listened to Lonnie for an hour”.

The great thing about Lonnie is you leave wanting more. A lot of speakers leave you with your blood pumping. Lonnie makes you leave with your heart and soul pumping. And that’s true motivation. There is not a day that goes by that I’m not aware and thinking of Red Shoes Living. Thank you, Lonnie, for making this world a better place….one human at a time.”

Red Shoes Living to the corporate world is like a home to the personal world. It provides a place to go where you can always count on kindness, gratitude, grace, and humility. So simple and yet leaders and their organizations struggle to balance this every day.”
