Bern Nadette Stanis is a well sought after guest speaker and panelist for some of the most coveted national speaking events, both ethnic and non-ethnic forums. Just off the heels of releasing her new book, she’s been invited to address self-esteem issues and related topics, which is the premise for “Situations 101,” including guest speaking appearances at high schools, magnet schools, fine art departments, College and Universities, Associations and Corporations across the US.

Topics include:

Self Esteem
Abstinence
Success
Entrepreneurship
Arts & Entertainment
Parenting
Relationships
Motivational

Stanis is on a quest to quell apparent ‘self-esteem issues and insecurities in our young generation.  Astonished by the everyday questions and persistent dogmatic relationship environment family, friends and women in general endure and sadly see as ‘the norm’, Bern Nadette was prompted to do more than have phone pow wow’s about possible resolutions. She was determined to proactively seek a forum to reach out and stop the cycle of perpetually ‘justifying’ reasons to remain in sufferable relationships. Her hope is to go beyond scraping the surface of why we tolerate what we do to dig deeper and breach the core of self-destructive behavior in relationships.
