Erin O’Malley

Keynote Speaker, Communications Expert, & Culture Catalyst


Do these sound familiar?

  • Your business is poised to grow but the momentum has stalled.
  • Communication between departments is non-existent. Silos are strong!
  • The team craves feedback but reacts as it’s a personal attack when delivered.
  • Your time is spent putting out fires and negotiating conflict.
  • Your employees talk about each other instead of to each other.
  • The drama has taken over and the team is asking, “Why am I even here?”


If you want cultures where:

Teams are unified under a clear vision and purpose with a defined path to make it happen

Teams work with each other, busting through silos and prioritizing collaboration

Teams trust and value each other to grow and get things done

Then unlocking human connection is the key that
drives your business, and vision, forward.

I’m Erin, and I’m on a mission to help leaders and their teams show up, engage, and connect at the human level. Ten years in hospitality leadership plus two years in the Peace Corps combined with ten years of facilitating workshops to thousands of participants in seven countries later, if there’s one truth I’ve discovered, it’s this: the more organizations, leaders,  and frontline teams insist their problems are unique, the more evidence I discover that the traits that connect us are universal. I work with leaders and organizations, from the frontline to the C-Suite, teaching them to redefine perceived problems with leadership, engagement, and loyalty, and focus on the real issue: connection.
