Dreams to Reality: Pursuing Your Passion at All Costs
ProtectHer: Redefining #MANHOOD (Male Audience)
The hottest topic in sports today isn’t Heisman hopefuls or the latest BCS rankings; unfortunately headlines are highlighting Ray Rice, sexual assault on campuses and at corporations, and other forms of domestic violence. While there is endless media attention about the problem, few people are discussing tangible solutions. In this incredibly important presentation, Alexis Jones starts what becomes an ongoing dialogue, asking young men the simple question, What kind of man will you choose to be? Having worked at ESPN and Fox Sports, Alexis speaks “dude” with exceptional ease. Based on her recent talk at NIKE to the top 18 high school quarterbacks in the country for ESPNU’s show “Elite 11,” Alexis goes much deeper than simply making audiences aware of the issues. Through tangible action steps and community building, Alexis shares how to be verbal, vulnerable, and honest – highlighting the fact that in order for men to respect women, men first have to respect themselves.
I AM THAT GIRL: Modern Girls on a Mission (Female Audience)
Today’s expectations of beauty can leave many girls and women feeling like outsiders. However, Alexis Jones wants to redefine the meaning of “beautiful” and ignite an empowering revolution for females that will help them see themselves in a different light. This inspiring talk reveals the reality behind many of the images women see in the media and explains the pitfalls of relying on outside appearance as a measurement of self-worth. Instead, Alexis encourages girls to look inward for purpose, value, and power. What does it mean to be a powerful woman? How can you find strength in your imperfections? How can you use your unique voice to lift up other women instead of tearing them down? Alexis will answer these questions and teach you how to be that independent, confident girl who dares to lead other women into changing the world.
Leading with Passion: Trailblazing in the Twenty-First Century
“You wake up everyday, and you choose your attitude.” This is just one of the many invigorating mantras of Alexis Jones, who believes that, with the right mindset, nothing is impossible to achieve. By encouraging a brave step outside of their comfort zones and taking bold moves to overcome fear, this talk inspires audiences to destroy their former ideas of “success” and discover fresh approaches to finding their own prosperity in the new millennium.

Alexis is certainly not confined to these topics and is willing to work with her clients to create tailor-made speeches.
