Vancouver Motivational Speaker

Inspire your audience

conversations that WILL make you laugh and cry in the best way

Warning, I Love F words!

It’s true, I love F words and I am not ashamed to admit it! There are so many amazing F words that we are so worried to say out loud, and I for one think we need to use them as much as possible!

Why? So that we remove the shame related
to them, cause shame is lame!

I am dedicated to reminding women that they
are a big F’ing deal, dismantling patriarchal beauty standards and encouraging women to take up more space – which I know is NOT easy to do.

My speaking engagements are more than just talks; they’re an invitation to connect, to feel, and to transform.

Whether I’m addressing body acceptance, the nuances of storytelling, or the journey of living with a chronic illness, my goal is to spark hope.

I am not here to be another motivational speak that leaves people thinking they wish they could be like me, that’s boring and so 2010.

Instead I will leave your audience feeling like:

“F’YEAH I CAN DO THIS TOO!

Vancouver Motivational Speaker, Michele Mateus

I BELIEVE IN

taking risks

In fact, my entire business was a big risk take! As a woman living with Multiple Sclerosis you wouldn’t have thought I would be one to want to lug camera gear around 10+hour wedding days, but I did and I f’ing loved it!

Was I scared, you bet I was! AND I knew it was finally time to leap in to what I love, an insatiable curiosity about people and telling stories. While I hung up my wedding photographer hat, I will never let go of my camera.
