Dana Morgan Barnes is the Kindness Keynote Speaker
A new virus is sweeping the country impacting business, customer service quality, and personal relationships too. The virus is called a lack of kindness. When people are too busy and too focused on themselves, they lack kindness and people get hurt.
In her keynote, The Power of Kindness, Dana shares her experiences growing up in an unkind home while being exposed to kindness from people she met outside her home. Her message uses emotional personal examples blended with just the right amount of humor and audience interaction to keep the audience engaged throughout the 45-minute performance.
Dana recalls, “A woman was in my audience and, as an example of using kindness, I randomly picked her out of the crowd and said, ‘That’s a lovely dress you’re wearing. You look very thin and beautiful in that dress.’ After the speech, she approached me and said, No one has ever called her thin before.’ The keynote has an effect on people.”
Dana’s message inspires attendees to take the time every day to be kind to at least one person and build the habit of being kind to people and see how it might change them. Specific steps are provided so that attendees leave the event venue with a new approach to immediately offering kindness to others.
You might not see how it effects those people directly but you will see a difference how YOU feel by distributing kindness.

Additional Speaking Topics Offered by Coach Dana
You Have the Power….to Change Your Life: Every day we have opportunities to be kind. It could be by giving great customer service, asking that one additional question to help find a real solution or as simple as a smile and a thank you. Find your own power through giving away kindness to those around you. It will change your life and maybe even the world.
Attitude of Gratitude……..Changing Your Perspective: What are you thankful for? We get so busy with our work, families and lives that we take them for granted. We forget to be thankful. By changing your perspective towards what you have, instead of what you don’t have, you become keenly aware of the smallest gifts all around you.
Communication….Making It Better in Every Situation: In this workshop, you will learn your communication style and how to determine the style of the people you interact with every day. Understanding these styles will give you the opportunity to move through situations calmly and without less conflict at work, home or social events.
Getting Healthy…..It’s Not About the Dress Size: How can becoming healthier change your life or the lives of your employees? Learn how being healthy, well and able will increase productivity, decrease stress and help improve overall wellbeing.
