Seize the Freakin’ Day
What do you want more of in your work and life? I mean really want?
When your mind gets to wander and wonder, where does it go?
Those dreams keep popping up for a reason. They want to get out. What if you let them? How would your life change?
Big ideas. Small steps.
Michelle Cederberg, Change Agent.
Empowering today’s dreamers, leaders and go-getters
to create the life and career they want.
To say that I’m inspired by the power of the human spirit is an understatement.
I’ve spent most of my life in the realm of human performance – as a competitive kayaker, as an avid outdoor enthusiast; mountain biker, rock climber and snowboarder. I’ve been a fitness instructor and personal trainer. I am a psychology major turned Kinesiology Master. I’ve worked as a college instructor, health educator, and personal trainer always interested in what makes people tick – inside and out.
Now, as a coach, consultant, and professional speaker I educate busy, driven professionals about purpose, productivity and the pursuit of better.
If anything drives me it’s this: to empower every person who dreams of more to go for it, every leader who dares to make a difference to trust they’re able, and every go-getter with a vision for success to say “Yeah, I can!”
We only get one chance at this thing called life.
I say, dare to live it BIG!

I didn’t want the year to end without sending a message of thanks for coming on this journey with me. If I spoke for your organization this year, coached you, or simply engaged through these posts, just know I appreciate being able to share my messages of resilience, motivation, and success with you.
As summer comes to end, I admit I often get a bit wistful. I’m usually not ready for the shorter, cooler days and the responsibility that comes with my non-summer-schedule. That being said…
As a conference organizer, you want someone who will engage the audience. The 2022 LEAP Conference for Women was a hybrid conference. Not only did Michelle engage both audiences ( in-person and virtual) with her presentation, her humour and delivery energized the room as she had attendees laughing while learning. Thank you Michelle for not only being great to work with leading up to the conference, but for lighting up the stage during the LEAP Conference!
While we wished we could have had Michelle speak in person, she made the virtual interaction top notch, feeling engaged and like we were right there with her! I would recommend her to anyone looking to be motivated and to inspire your group while having fun along the way. Her energy was exactly what we all needed with so many takeaways for the designers to take beyond the presentation and grow as an individual and employee.
As an added bonus, Michelle sent a personal signed copy of her wonderful book to each of our designers as a gift from our company for their continued growth and appreciation. The responses from our attendees were overwhelmingly positive, saying that Michelle’s presentation was one the best parts of the conference, and the designers appreciated us as a company investing in their mental health and well-being as individuals. I would gladly have Michelle back for any of our future events as an inspiring, fun and engaging keynote!
Michelle offers a fun, engaging, and realistic view of how we can take control in our lives and live to our full potential. We also enjoyed meeting with Michelle in person. She helped our team feel some joy and human connection, something we have all been missing for a very long time!
Michelle's virtual skills put her in a category few belong to. She transcends the space to make you feel like you are having a one-on-one conversation with her. She is comfortable, relaxed, and skilled at making the audience feel the same way. Michelle is guaranteed to make you feel confident in your speaker choice. She delivers every single time.
Michelle keynoted on stress management at work which fit with our mental health theme and then the panel together with Michelle delved into the themes of diversity & inclusion, and the challenges women face in the workplace.
Some of the comments from the employees on Michelle’s keynote presentation were: ‘Hearing Michelle say that that we don’t have to hold it together was what I needed to hear amidst a pandemic and the challenging times I am in’, ‘you need to give yourself time to recover from stress was the key learning for me’, ‘her full body presentation made it look like she was in the room with us’, ‘it was very engaging’, ‘I have been with the organization for 10 years and this was the best IWD event I have attended in terms of the speaker’.
Other panel speakers said ‘Michelle was well versed in the topic, engaging and very easy to work with as a panel member’ We hope to have Michelle again hopefully face-to-face post pandemic.
I have also had the honour of seeing Michelle present in person at an all day professional development workshop and her humour and enthusiasm shines brightly! I highly recommend Michelle Cederberg for your next event!
We conducted a survey after the event and the results showed that >90% of the team were very satisfied or satisfied by the presentation made by Michelle. It was very impressive, and Michelle really exceeded all the previous guest speakers we used in the past.
Everyone in the room left motivated and re-engaged. Shell Retail would highly endorse Michelle for any audience. She did a fantastic job at getting the attention of the group with her lively and energized presentation.
