Speech Topics

As a veteran of a cutthroat industry, having held prestigious news anchor positions at multiple major media networks, Erica Hill knows her stuff. In this speech, Ms. Hill offers audiences a behind-the-scenes take on what it’s like to be the face of the daily news and applies her knowledge to workplace culture across all industries. Some key points discussed are:

• Onto the next: How to pick yourself up and successfully move on to a new job after one ends

• Frustrations of the “nice guys finish last” syndrome

• Understanding the game: How missing cues and “missing out” on the inner circle can actually be beneficial

• Mentor myths and realities

We live in a culture that has morphed “busy” and “important” into unlikely synonyms. “The Daily Juggle” reveals itself in many forms, most frequently presenting as anxiety (“How am I going to get all of this done?”) The effect can be crippling to a person’s mental health and sense of general wellbeing. This always-busy ideology makes minor disappointments feel like big failures, stunting personal growth and the ability to have and achieve meaningful aspirations. In this presentation, Erica Hill shares how she overcame the debilitating phenomenon of being “too busy” with three main takeaways:

• Admitting perceived failures can become your biggest strength.

• Having honest conversations with your family, colleagues, and friends about your true priorities will set you free.

• Pulling back: Erica shares how she embraced a very important one-word answer, “No.”

By sharing personal anecdotes and providing tangible takeaways, Ms. Hill inspires audiences and encourages them to find purpose and joy in the little moments at work and at home.

From her extensive work on the board of AmeriCares, Erica Hill is equipped with an intimate knowledge of how access to quality care allows for better outcomes across all demographics. The ability to work, to plan, and for kids to be in school and learn are just some of the areas that could be improved for everyone if access to health care was equal and simplified. In this presentation, Ms. Hill can also discuss the ways in which COVID-19 exposed vast health care inequities in the United States.

In this speech, Erica Hill addresses the disparities in U.S. education and the problematic consequences. She shares her knowledge about the impact of early learning on future success, how food security impacts learning for children, and why getting uncomfortable can be an excellent education. Ms. Hill also discusses the value of observational learning through travel and unique experiences. These remarks can be tailored to meet your organization’s goals.
