Speaking

“I speak from my heart to people’s hearts”

Speaking at Patagonia Soho, in NYC

I speak for English speaking and Spanish speaking audiences

Watch my talk at Patagonia BA in Argentina

Here’s a video from the talk I gave at Patagonia Buenos Aires this summer. The video is in Spanish, but has English subtitles.

I talked about how I manifested my dream of getting sponsored by Patagonia to travel the world surfing, and how I share those tools today with other people through my coaching, writing and speaking.

Press Play and enjoy!

Through my lectures I can talk about:

  • How to get a clear vision for our lives
  • How to take action steps towards our goals
  • How to overcome challenges and fear
  • How to reach our highest potential
  • How to navigate hard times and overcome obstacles in life
  • How to enjoy life at it’s purest on a day to day basis

For businesses, I help your employees and higher level executives by sharing about:

  • How to increase efficiency at work
  • How to overcome the fear of cold sales
  • How to pan out a vision for the company
  • Team building and project management

I’ve spoken for hundreds of people in Honolulu, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile and New York City.

I can do presentations in person, via webinars or via teleseminar in Spanish or in English. If you are interested in having me speak to your school, university, company or organization, please contact me at mercedes@mercedesmaidana.com

    Each time more people show up and leave inspired to tackle their own dreams in life

    Mercedes was able to build a strong bond between the audience and herself.  The way she tells her story, and the strength of her message, makes people want to take a deeper approach into their own lives.  Her story and her life inspire people to make real changes.  We keep inviting her every year, and each time more people show up and leave inspired to tackle their own dreams in life.  We are really proud she is part of the Patagonia Family.”

    Mercedes is a powerful energy

    “Listening to Mercedes speak from such a truthful place of authenticity, will awaken every cell of your body.  You may feel goose bumps while you hear her talking because she speaks straight from her heart.  Her energy and words will inspire you to connect with your hidden desires. You will search for your own truth. I believe in each word that Mercedes speaks, which is why I organized an event for her in Buenos Aires.  Her life is a reflection of what she shares. She walks the talk in every aspect of her life.

    Her path is about having accomplished results by taking action. Mercedes is a source of light, inspiration, truth and pure love.  She is a powerful energy.”

    As an event organizer, I couldn’t ask for more.  Mercedes delivers and the audience loves her

    “It was an honor to have been a part of witnessing Mercedes speak in front of so many people.  Days after the event, we kept commenting on how powerful her talk was.  Everybody present at the talk was touched on some level.

    Mercedes made a strong impact in people’s lives. She left her heart on the stage and everybody felt it.  She put the same energy that is required to tackle a huge wave, into communicating with the audience.  The only difference is that instead of being faced with a mass of water, she was faced with hundreds of people that have feelings.  I will take a big wave any day of the week! As an event organizer, I couldn’t ask for more.  Mercedes delivers and the audience loves her.”

    I left her talk with a full heart!

    “As soon as Mercedes started talking, I felt connected with her and with everybody present. Mercedes inspired me and motivated me to keep moving forward into my happiness. I left her talk with a full heart!”

    I walked away from her talk feeling uplifted, feeling that all was possible

    “Mercedes got up in front of the room and shared from her heart about her journey, about her dreams, her fears and how she was able to create this amazing life she has! Her vulnerability was very inspiring when she talked about some of the big waves and that it was OK to be afraid sometimes, because she did not give up. She also shared how she manifest working with Patagonia – incredible! She is bubbly, enthusiastic, magnetic and fierce! I walked away from that talk feeling uplifted, feeling that all was possible. Lots of fun!”

    The audience was wholly absorbed

    “The story she told was both charming and inspirational. She spoke from the heart and shared her achievements and defeats candidly and with humor. The audience was wholly absorbed. Mercedes’ enthusiasm is contagious and her drive to succeed is commendable. She encourages others to follow their dreams. She created a positive energy in the
    room that evening and afterwards many guests lined up to speak to her one-on-one.”

    To say that I walked away from her presentation feeling inspired would be an understatement

    Mercedes challenges listeners to dare to dream and push themselves to their highest potential. She speaks from a loving, passion-filled heart.  To say that I walked away from her presentation feeling inspired would be an understatement. Instead, I would say that I walked away with a hope that if I too dared be as bold and dedicated as Mercedes, my wishes could also become a reality. “

  • Maria Molinari, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    Mercedes held nothing back during her presentation

    “Mercedes opened her heart, held nothing back during her presentation. Her story made me feel grateful for what life has given me,  and happy to live simply, appreciating and enjoying my family. Her words brought me to value what is presented to me every day. I left with was a sense of peace that lasts and that appears every day.”

    Mercedes is vibrant, full of energy and sensitive.

    “Mercedes is vibrant, full of energy and sensitive. I loved her simplicity and courage, her will to help others through her own experience. It was inspiring to listen to her. I learned that by changing your standpoint and your attitude when facing obstacles, one can give way to surprising paths in your own life!

  • Guillermo Lopez, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    I was very impressed by the new concepts that she introduced into my life about being able to manifest our dreams with our actions and intentions.

    “I went to listen to Mercedes because I first heard her on a radio interview. I felt I would be finding something different. The moment she walked in, with her everlasting smile, I said to myself, “Right place, right time and lots of insightful work to do after I leave”.
     
    I was very impressed by the new concepts that she introduced into my life about being able to manifest our dreams with our actions and intentions.

    After the presentation was over I greeted Mercedes and she gave me very helpful tips.

    That cold July morning I was able to bring home some useful tools. Mercedes sends great tips on internet too. Now I feel I want to achieve new stuff and outdo myself in the ones I am already working on so that I receive more Abundance.

    If I feel good everything around me will get better too. For many more Hell Yeah’s!!!”
