Here’s What They Say About Carrie…
“After attending your workshop this past weekend, I left with newfound pageant knowledge that I cannot wait to put to good use. I learned so much useful information that I can use to better myself, my social media, my platform, and my pageant skills. Your workshop was perfect for pageant competitors, moms, coaches, and more!”
“Awesome workshops!!! My daughter and I learned a lot! How fundraising ties to your ability to market your program was especially interesting and informative.”
“Carrie… I loved your presentation. It was absolutely beneficial and very helpful to see examples of good interviews rather than just being told what makes a good interview. Also, your pageant brand idea is fantastic! It is very true and got me thinking. I will definitely be thinking about my brand in future interviews and endeavors! You did great and I would love to see you do it again next year!”
“(My daughter) and I agree that the few minutes we had with you was the most productive and inspiring part of the entire weekend. I cannot express how grateful we are for your energy and insight. You have no idea how much we gleaned from our time with you. You are so charismatic and a beautiful example of my mantra “Do what you LOVE and you will always have what you need.”
When considering speakers for an event for our local contestants, Carrie Lakey from Pageant Junkies, was one of our first choices. I had the opportunity to meet Carrie and do a podcast with her and knew she had a ton to offer our contestants. With the recent development of Pageant Junkies University, Carrie’s insanely awesome ability to promote the Miss America Organization, and her continuous work on the importance of branding, we knew she’d be a great choice.
We were so impressed with Carrie’s workshop as well has her willingness to step in and fill another workshop not originally intended for her. Carrie is flexible, terribly fun to work with, and was so appreciated by everyone in attendance. We can’t wait to have her back in Nebraska!
