Biography

Coming from an entrepreneurial upbringing, Stacey learned early on how we consistently show up and interact determines our success in our organizations and in our lives. Starting with a career in voice-over, she quickly realized how every word matters – every movement of your body matters and every sound you make matters (volume, tone and inflection). All of these combined determines who listens, who stays connected with you, who believes you and then acts on your recommendation.

Stacey then jumped into the corporate world as a trainer for Fortune 500 companies, training every possible topic from motivation to customer service to leadership. She traveled internationally researching the difference between a leader who is influential versus a leader who’s simply a good communicator.

Today, Stacey is the CEO of a highly sought-after consulting and training company where she mentors leaders who want to ensure their employees perceive them as an influential leader – those who are working towards a promotion – and sales professionals to ensure their message and style resonates with their clients.

As a thought leader she has been a featured guest on media outlets including: The New York Times, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Thrive, SmartMoney Magazine, The Economist and Business Week. Her client list is vast: FedEx, McDonalds, Google, Kraft Heinz, Nationwide, American Express, Discover and Oracle. Her knowledge leading diverse, high-level teams makes her a sought-after speaker and consultant and she has inspired thousands around the world through her ability to connect with an audience and one-on-one.

Her 19 years of studying influence across cultures and industries, leading large corporate teams makes her the perfect fit for organizations large and small who are ready to influence on a consistent basis. Clients hire Stacey because of her implementable strategies that help leaders get to the point, communicate with confidence and credibility, to build trust and deliver messages that drive action, creating lasting results.

It made the material more credible and believable to the audience since they could see, firsthand, how effective the communication techniques are. The immediate change in their behavior was amazing.

I worked with Stacey Hanke Inc. for approximately 5 years. Her and her team are incredibly polished, poised and professional. I've highly recommended her to countless colleagues both in my organization and externally. She has incredibly high standards for herself and her team and an extremely strong brand. I've been thoroughly impressed with every interaction I've had - both in planning and in execution. I believe she is strongly deserving of this high distinction.

I’ve known Stacey for about 6 years and have worked with her and her team several times. Those sessions have included one on one coaching, executive development workshops for 70+ officers and directors and delivery of keynotes. I’ve also been responsible for design of an executive development program through which I had the opportunity to arrange many speakers and workshops. Stacey’s work clearly stands out both for its easy practicality and useful, concrete implementation. I can attribute my own improvement in effective communication to Stacey’s influence.
