“Do Something NOW your future self will thank you for!” is a quote that Quinn Conyers lives by whole-heartedly.

Quinn brings an incredible energy into any room she enters; her strength and confidence shine brightly. Her positivity couples expertly with her practical and real-world approach to school, business and life.

Lead Like a Lady: Leveraging College for Women

Nearly 57% of students enrolled in college are female, many of which hold leadership roles in campus clubs, organizations and associations. Unfortunately, they often find themselves feeling unfulfilled, stressed or overwhelmed without anyone to turn to for support and guidance. Finding a balance in life between academics, work, clubs and friends can seem nearly impossible at times. Lady leaders frequently aren’t appreciated for the work they do for clubs or organizations and rarely get the academic feedback they need. They are left feeling as though their heads are barely above water with everything they have to juggle.

As a resident assistant, peer mentor for two organizations and member of the Black History Club, Quinn Conyers knows first hand how to lead like a lady! Through years of trial and error, she’s learned how to balance academics, extracurricular activities and a social life like a champion. Her expertise and advice will empower your leading ladies to do the same.

In this action-oriented keynote, Quinn inspires college women to DO, DELEGATE, and DREAM! She arms women with the tools they need to command their lives and careers. Quinn pushes lady leaders outside their comfort zone, challenging them to lead by example, ask for help when they need it, and go after the job or business idea they’ve always wanted.

This motivational and inspiration keynote is perfect for lady leaders, collegiate women’s conferences and women’s college clubs.

Flourish as a Freshman

Freedom, finances and new friends can make or break you going into your first year of college. As a matter of fact, 1 in 3 first time college students will NOT return for their sophomore year. Many students are well aware college is an opportunity of a lifetime, but often lack the guidance, family support or discipline to be successful. Quinn Conyers is here to give first time college students a heads-up as someone who has been in their shoes not once, but twice. She presents them with a life-changing message that will help them maximize their college experience from day one.

In this powerful and thought-provoking keynote, Quinn enlightens first year college students on how to navigate campus life. She encourages students to be active, authentic and alert on campus. Quinn engages students through real life examples on how to be a stellar student beyond getting good grades.

  • various ways to transition from a high school mindset to a college mentality.

Excelling as Resident Assistant

Roommate conflict, dorm room parties and community hygiene are only a few areas that Resident Assistants (RA’s) deal with on a daily basis. How do you be fair, but also be an enforcer of student housing policies? And how do you balance a life outside your student leadership position? Many RA’s often get overwhelmed, asking themselves, “is this really for me?” or “will I ever get a day off?”. In this powerful keynote exclusively for student leaders in RA positions, Quinn Conyers shares relatable advice on how to deal with situations that are frequent in residence life and housing.

As a Resident Assistant (RA) 3 out of her 4 years of college, Quinn successfully mastered the RA and student life world. Going to class, managing a floor of 240 coed students, AND keeping up with a social life was Quinn’s day-to-day reality. She held the record for the most students attending her monthly educational programs and had the lowest number of roommate change requests to date!
