Presentation Information

This fun presentation provides an inspirational experience as a breakout or keynote session. Since it can be a dog eat dog world, it’s best to be a Big Dog. Big Dogs are individuals who are confident in their abilities and humble in their communications with others. Dr. Thea conducted interviews with nationally and internationally known leaders in their fields to identify the characteristics and strategies used by these “Big Dogs.”

Big Dogs are free to be themselves and bring out the best in others. While enjoying themselves, participants learn how to find and use their authentic power to relate to others in a helping relationship.


For individuals whose work depends on creating and nurturing relationships, everyday work can be daunting. Dr. Thea challenges you to look at the specific techniques you are using in relating to others, both clients and colleagues. Using humility in relating to others and being kind to yourself is presented in a 3-step formula: self-awareness, openness, and service. In this conference presentation, Dr. Thea helps you to see the greater good to which each person is working.
