Speak At Your Event

Professional Speaking Engagements

With over 15 years of public speaking experience Jami is an engaging and fun speaker to have at events.

Jami specializes in two main areas of speaking. The first is motivational stories and inspirational presentations where she is often brought in to share what got her into travel writing and how it has transformed her life.

As a Digital Media Consultant, Jami regularly works with BIA’s, associations, and special interest groups to present on Social Media, SEO, and upcoming trends in digital media.

Inspirational Topics

How the most embarrassing moment of my life became the catalyst for change.

In this inspirational talk, Jami gets very personal about a truly embarrassing moment that once survived, she used as a catalyst for change. She breaks down what wasn’t working in her life and how people can take the lessons she’s learned to lead a more fulfilling, fun, and adventure-filled life.

Embracing your inner fireball

With all the pressure of today’s society, people often find themselves a slave to everything they have to do with very little time to do what they want to do. In this talk Jami shares concepts about how to flip the priority triangle on its head and start living a life that inspires you. It’s not going to be an easy conversion, but most things that are worthwhile, don’t come easy.

What Others Are Saying

“Jami was one of the first bloggers that we had chosen to partner with for our “Coastal Christmas” festivities – she set the bar so high for everyone who came after her! Her email communication leading up to the visit was thorough, and we easily agreed on the details of what was expected after she and the family spent the weekend with us. Jami was prompt on the delivery of the posts, and did a great job at documenting the experience in real-time on her social media accounts. She has continued to be an essential ambassador for our destination and we are thrilled with the work she has done.”

  • How would you like to cosy around this campfire for Apres drinks, eats, and treats? (Not to mention the dancing!).
___
The campfire and the ski lodge is the hub of @SasquatchMountainResort and creating fantastic guest experiences is clearly the team's priority at the mountain. From bumping beats on the deck on Friday nights, to smore kits for sale for the kids, to $40 family lift tickets, when they chose the hashtag #FantasticFamilyFun, they meant it!
____
We recommend renting a cabin at Sasquatch and making your adventures a whole weekend away. Top tips:
1. Ditch work early on Friday and arrive in time for the $40 Family Night skiing (4-8pm on Fridays.
2. Stay at an on-mountain cabin - double the fun and share it with another family or two! There's lots of HUGE cabins available!
3. Ski all day Saturday. Play in the POW!
4. Stop by the Sliding Hill before you head out on Sunday!

  • Do you want to have more outdoor adventures with your family?
____
Tip: Find friends who share in the same interests so you have someone to go with. Then, turn ideas into action by:
 1️⃣ Booking time on your calendar to recreate.
2️⃣ Take turns coordinating so neither of you gets burned out.
3️⃣ Find deals (Like family night skiing at Sasquatch for $40!) to make adventure attainable.
4️⃣ Have multiple sets of friends who you commit to so your odds of having more adventures increase!

Speaking of local adventures, Our Adventure Awaits team has been up at @sasquatchmountainresort for last week and this week and we are excited to showcase this local mountain to you! One of our Writers, Scott stayed for the weekend while I only stayed for the Friday night!

  • ❄️ Snow Day ❄️
____
It was 1995 and we had two feet of snow, leaving the schools closed and my parents home for the day. I’ll never forget my Mom and I gearing up and spending hours in the backyard building snowmen and playing in the snow. ⛄️
____
I woke up at 4:30 to get a jump on work but it was piling up and I was set to wave goodbye to my kids as they headed out the door... I yelled 🛑 and grabbed my gear and joined them for an hour. Thanks Mom for the valuable lesson you taught me 25 years ago... whenever you can say “yes” to playing in the ❄️.
____
So I’ll be working late and up again early tomorrow... but it was worth it. It always is.
