About Victoria

Victoria Labalme helps individuals and organizations navigate uncertainty, uncover their creative/inner genius, and bring out the best in themselves and in others. Her powerful TEDx talk -- Risk Forward: The Rewards of Not Knowing -- garnered tens of thousands of views in its first few weeks online.

As a Performing Artist, Performance Strategist, and member of the Speaker Hall of Fame,  Victoria’s proprietary systems and strategies have been embraced by over 700 organizations, C-suite executives at dozens of companies including Starbucks, Microsoft, Coca-Cola and PayPal; Hollywood celebrities; New York Times bestselling authors; and leaders appearing on PBS, TED and Oprah.

Bringing decades of experience from the performing arts to help people transform their performance at work and in life, Victoria has created stunning results. Over the last 20 years, she has shared her methodology for effective self-expression with more than 300,000 people around the world.

In these times, conditions are in constant flux, people are experiencing internal angst, and uncertainty prevails. Competition, speed, and change are increasing at unprecedented levels. Victoria’s counterintuitive approach to all this is riveting, surprising, and effective.

Taking a stand against common cultural norms, Victoria believes that uncertainty is not the enemy, but a potential asset when used wisely.

Risking Forward is all about:

Doing what’s right for you, even if you can’t defend it with logic

Expressing your ideas, even if you don’t know where they will lead

Creating your own path, even if it doesn’t look like anyone else’s

You are not alone.
