About Motivational Speaker Jody Urquhart

Is your Audience Worn out? Exhausted? Bleary Eyed?

People experiencing burnout often don't see any hope of positive change. 

But their circumstances do not define who they are. They only remind them how far they have come and what they can achieve. We don't get better despite challenges in our work but because of them.

When your busyness is tied to your worthiness, change is all-consuming. 

My goal is to help people leave burnout behind, realize their potential and become the best version of themselves.
