Laura Templeton

CEO 30 Second Success

Hi Ellevate Sister! I'm Laura Templeton, Founder and CEO of 30 Second Success, helping business owners, professionals, and sales teams ditch the pitch and start connecting. Yes! I love helping audiences dig deep and find the words that connect with their audiences and drive more business to their door. How, you ask? As an International Speaker, Author, and Communications Coach I work with the most amazing people who just need the right formula and a bit of belief in themselves to overcome their struggle to communicate their value and connect with confidence. I am currently working on a course for the do-it yourselfers who want a step-by-step tutorial of the formula I teach to my global audiences. This formula is proven to help you craft a 30 second message that attracts more clients and gets them to want to know more about you and your work. Stay tuned for the launch announcement!

Caryn Kent Dean

CEO & Managing Partner Once Upon an RFP

I'm Caryn Kent Dean, CEO, Founder & Managing Member of Once Upon an RFP. I live outside of Chicago with my husband, 3 kids and Scout the rescue dog. I've been an entrepreneur for 3 years because, after 10 years raising my kids full-time, I re-entered the corporate world and couldn't find the right combination of balance, challenge and creativity. I founded Once Upon an RFP in 2018 as a boutique proposal consultancy specializing in Request for Proposal (RFP) based proposals. I've realized that this is just one piece of the Government contracting puzzle and that there is a lot of inequity in the services available to supporting government contractors that aren't large corporations. I'm working on building sustainable solutions for small businesses that work with government.

Confidence Coach Jen Walter Coaching

I'm a confidence coach for midlife professional women who want to change careers. My clients dream about being in a more fulfilling career, but think "it's too late" or "I could never do that". I help them create self-confidence, believe in what they're capable of, and get out of their own way.

Cindy Tsai

Physician, Speaker, Life Coach Self

I am a board-certified physician, mindfulness teacher and life coach who helps high-achieving professional women go from chasing what’s next to loving what’s now. After years in medicine, I left my primary care practice because I wanted to make a bigger impact. Coaching helped me identify what was truly important to me so I could live a life that felt good to me as opposed to the life I “should” be living. My mission is to empower other women to look within and believe in themselves so they can live a meaningful life of ease and joy.
