Jody LaVoie is a respected inspirational speaker. She speaks on the topic of resilience and overcoming life challenges, especially after the death of a spouse. 


She blends her personal experience living life after the death of her husband with her background as a mother of three and an executive running a $50M supply chain technology business. Her interactive, multi-media stage performance takes her audience on an uplifting journey where she helps her audience turn lemons into lemonade and harness their inner power to move forward in their lives and careers even during difficult times.


She is inspiring and multifaceted. Female audiences especially resonate with Jody's messages of resilience and communicating with power. Those that have the opportunity to listen to Jody are always engaged, entertained, and leave feeling a sense of hope. 


After my husband was shot at our place of business by an employee that he demoted, I had to mobilize instantly from being a stay-at-home mom to running a multi-million dollar business, solo parenting three daughters and juggling new legal, financial, and many other household related issues. 


The profound affect of these experiences set me on a trajectory to help other women uncover their purpose with a clear path forward living the lives that they love.

Love for Jody

Overcome life and career obstacles...

I had the pleasure of seeing Jody LaVoie speak at a Professional Women’s Club of Chicago (PWCC) luncheon. She was magnificent!


Her words and hands-on activities resonated with the 85+ women in the audience. We were all on the edges of our seats listening to Jody tell the story of her husband’s untimely death and then how she led her children and transformed their family company through the hardest time of her life.


Her real-life experience is especially helpful for widows and widowers but is very much applicable to anyone having to overcome life and career obstacles. I left the presentation ready to put into action her suggestions about how to increase my confidence going into meetings and presentations.


I would highly recommend to anyone thinking about going to see Jody speak or anyone considering working with Jody to seize the opportunity to experience the courage and wisdom that this powerful woman exudes.

Jody was great. I really liked how she tailored her presentation to the needs of the group. She was engaging when she spoke, which made the time fun and interactive for our audience. She took the time to answer questions and was relatable in her answers.


Overall, I feel our group left with a better grasp of how to build confidence in their own daily work routine and be more comfortable when presenting. I will be recommending Jody to others!

The West Suburban Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business committee received the recommendation to have Jody speak at their Fall Luncheon.  From the very first conversation Jody was responsive to the focus of the event and understood that our audience was multigenerational.  It was important to us that her presentation speak to a diverse audience.   She hit it out of the park!  Not only is Jody an engaging speaker but you leave with practical tools to help you succeed!
