Speaking


Speak It.

TEDx Talks. University stadiums. Intimate leadership gatherings. Corporate keynotes. Community initiatives. Recognition Dinners. Races. 

These are a few of the venues and audiences Zoe's wowed and inspired. Her talks focus on the tactical aspects of goal-setting, the power of purpose, and vulnerability in innovation. She encourages teams to never give up, to respect their potential, and to understand that sweet spot where organizational or community objectives overlap with personal ones. Disciplined determinationpurpose-driven projects, perseverance. Logistics of quitting. Habits. Relentless forward progress.  These are a few words you might catch in a presentation. She couples her stories with vivid footage from her running endeavors, creating a truly dynamic experience by pulling the audience right in, into the mountains in France, the wildfires in Texas, the exhausted midnight finale in Corsica. 

"I work for Northwestern Mutual as a representative and am nearing the end of my second year. Ive been to many company events where Ive heard great people speak from around the world. The list of people (some famous, some not) goes on. Of everything in life Ive ever heard to this point, your talk yesterday was the most impactful, relevant, inspirational, and life changing."   -- Benjamin Carl, Syracuse Office

"The sky was such that I'd never seen it before, not before that night and not ever again after leaving the plains of Texas. Gaping, deep, seeping with such utter darkness but unable to withhold the sharp pricks of starlight bursting forth. It was at once that darkest and brightest sky I'd ever seen, stars packed so densely I didn't think it possible; and the spaces in between poured thick with darkness. I didn't know in which aspect of it I should lose myself."

We do not run to depart, but to arrive. To forever venture forth, not stand still. We run, because it always gets us where we need to be. We run because it is a way of going, and we have always gone. For years and years, we have gone; your ancestors have gone, and so have mine; and now so shall you, and so shall I.

// written for Zoe Goes Running Official Trailer for forthcoming documentary, in collaboration with Alexander Kreher films and The Branching

In my private life, I was a confused, unsettled 19-year-old away at school. But while I was running I was free, calm, my thoughts crystal clear. I became a runner without even realizing what an involved, long-term commitment I was getting myself into. Sitting here six years later, I understand why I first fell for the sport, but what’s more interesting is why I keep doing it. At one time in my life, running gave me the clarity and resolution that I needed, but why didn’t I just stop once I'd moved on?

En route to see Atmosphere, all my normal worries begin to plague me. I know what I want, I just hope I get it. I want Slug to blow my expectations to pieces; I want him to make me think twice about what it means to respect a musician. Not too much to ask. But I don't want these things so much as need them, as I need every possible affirmation of the necessity of my fandom.
