Deemed "the secret weapon to restoring sanity to the workplace," Wakeman has helped companies such as Facebook, Google, NASA, Pfizer, NBC Universal, Johns Hopkins, and Bank of America Merryl Lynch learn to navigate our rapidly changing world using good mental processes to harness energy wasted in workplace drama and reinvest that effort into achieving profound business results.

She's a regular contributor on Forbes.com and The Huffington Post, and in 2018 was voted a Top 100 Leadership Expert to follow on Twitter.
Wakeman has published three books, including Reality-Based Leadership and her latest, No Ego: How to Cut the Cost of Drama, End Entitlement and Drive Big Results. She hosts her own podcast, a Facebook Watch show, and adds weekly video content on YouTube to address the challenges leaders face in the workplace.
Cy Wakeman is the highest rated keynote speaker in the history of the QNET Conference. Since she was last in Winnipeg in 2015, there have been requests to bring Cy back to present new material and provide more intensive training in her philosophy. Cy tells you why you cannot miss the conference.
You asked, you got it! Cy will present a brand new, dynamic Opening Keynote Presentation and an intensive Full Afternoon Workshop with a live Q&A where you have the opportunity to get your challenging leadership questions answered. Cy tells you about her two presentations.
Grounded in reality, Wakeman's revolutionary approach to leadership is founded on a reality-based mindset and personal accountability.
