About Michelle Poler - Branding Strategist & Social Entrepreneur:

Born and raised in Caracas-Venezuela, Michelle Poler is a creative and passionate social entrepreneur, keynote speaker, fear facer, and branding strategist.

She is the Founder of Hello Fears, a social movement empowering millions to step outside of the comfort zone and tap into their full potential. She has spoken at TEDx, Google, INBOUND, Facebook, ESPN, Netflix, Procter and Gamble, Microsoft, Toyota, World Domination Summit, Festival of Media Global, and many more.

In April 2015, Michelle embarked on a 100-day project that would change the course of her life. Born to a family of Holocaust survivors, Michelle was accustomed to living with fear. But when she moved to New York, she quickly realized that the “big apple” was not for the fearful. In order to rewrite her definition of fear and change her approach to life, Michelle decided to face 100 of her fears in a period of 100 days, uploading every experience to YouTube sharing them with the world.

At around day 40, the project was discovered by the media, becoming a viral phenomenon. Her work has been featured on CBS, CNN, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Fox News, Telemundo, Glamour, Elle, The Rachael Ray Show, Refinery29, and Daily Mail among many others. Celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher, Sofia Vergara, Zoey Deschanel, Lil Wayne and George Takei also shared Michelle’s project, generating millions of views.

In 2017 Michelle started speaking to the younger generation. Since then, she has empowered over 20,000 students at schools and universities around the world to live with courage, find their authenticity and embrace their growth paths.

Unapologetically You — Tap into your creative genius and unleash your authentic self
“Tapping into the white space” is an industry term often used in advertising and branding. The white space is the future waiting to take shape. It’s untapped territory. It’s what no one else is doing—either because they’re too worried about fitting in, or because they’d rather play it safe and stick to what’s proven. New territories call for courage and authenticity. But marketers aren’t the only ones who can tap into the white space – anyone can.  Michelle takes audiences on an eye-opening journey to discover their own authenticity and how to use their gifts to drive innovation, for themselves and their organizations. Using real-world examples from her own adventure as a branding strategist turned successful speaker, author, and entrepreneur, she shows us all that you don’t necessarily need to face 100 fears, in order to become more pioneering. Attendees will walk away with several aha moments, renewed confidence in their personal creativity, and a blueprint to infuse more innovation into their work and lives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Look beyond the obvious to find “white spaces” and areas for growth
  • Understand what makes you remarkable to clarify the values and tone of your personal brand
  • Align how you feel with how your act to strengthen authenticity
  • Contrast instead of comparing yourself to others or the status quo
  • Use storytelling to authentically communicate your message

Hello Future: Grow Through Dirt & Rewrite Your Story
“Throw dirt at me and watch me bloom.” — Frida Kahlo

  • Embrace and even welcome change
  • Turn obstacles into opportunities
  • Go from anxiety to action
  • Find purpose in the midst of chaos
  • Rewrite their story and become their own hero

Through personal storytelling, insightful exercises, and actionable tools, Michelle will lead your audience on a journey through resilience and re-invention, that will change their mindset and build their confidence to land stronger on the other side of this health and economic crisis we’re all living through.
