Special Events and Workshops

Keynotes and Conferences

“Everyone is still raving about your opening keynote, all the feedback from the conference says you were, by far, the favorite talk out of the whole event.” – Conference Organizer, Motion Picture and Television Fund

“The course, dealing with hard, difficult and dark things, made these things bearable by the deft, smart and soulful navigation Chanel brought to the conversation.” – Michael B., Workshop participant

Small Groups and Will Parties

“Chanel answered our questions and advised us about the next steps we should all be taking to make sure our loved ones are not plunged into chaos. It might sound morbid, but it was actually really fun and inspiring. We signed, witnessed for each other and the notary stamped them all. We were done!”  – Holly, Seattle WA.
