Have Gigi speak on your next podcast or live event!

Gigi Burke, PhD is a Heartset Coach, Career Coach, and Speaker. She is on a mission to make learning about feelings fun and healthy, to inspire women and members of historically excluded groups to create and sustain careers and businesses that truly make their heart and soul sing.   

She has appeared on podcasts, presents at conferences, and leads workshops for groups and organizations. She continuously seeks creative ways to invite audiences to connect with and channel their felt sense. And is just as comfortable speaking virtually as she is on stage.

One of her superpowers is seamlessly integrating concepts that appear, on the surface, to be disparate and dull concepts into palatable and practical tips and techniques. Coupled with her quirks and sense of humor audiences are treated to a full on edutaing experience.

Gigi has worked behind the scenes of conferences, job fairs, executive trainings, and retreats. She intimately understands the ins and outs of producing high quality events. She will do her part to make you look great and ensure that your event is nothing short of fabulous.   

Here's Her Signature Topics:


Emotional On Purpose™

Typically, we approach “managing” emotions from a defensive and reactive perspective. This is an opportunity to learn how to be generative and proactive in our experience and expression of emotion to live better, lead better, and work better.

Hopeless To Happy & Healthy
Suicide is silent killer and taboo subject for Black & Brown Women that has had devastating consequences. Gigi shares her experience and her journey to move from feeling Hopeless to feeling Happy and Healthy by really working through her grief. She shares her strategies for bouncing back and bouncing forward, and making resilience a key part of your routine.

Presence, Privilege & Prosperity
Presence is that way of being that is linked to a host of career, business and personal benefits, especially our ability to handle our own and others emotions with ease and grace.  How can you truly be present when history and society have not made it safe, encouraged nor supported you? This special talk focuses on how we too can truly be present and reap the benefits

Success Redefined!
For our entire lives, Black and Brown women have adhered to a certain model of what it means to be successful, but what has it really gotten us? How can you start cultivating success on your terms now? That’s what Gigi focuses on in this talk.

"I was most struck by the biological and physiological intelligence and explanations in your presentation. I was fascinated by how much you knew and communicated. The reality of the information you presented is helpful to me as I try and help others be more emotionally intelligent too many people that grew up thinking that emotions have no place in the working world."
