Valerie Hayes

Valerie Hayes is a recognized leader in the pageant community, specializing in current events and interview coaching, and has been featured as a subject matter expert on CNN, NBC, ABC’s Good Morning America and in People magazine. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, Valerie spent over 20 years working as a Human Resources executive for Fortune 500 companies, receiving multiple awards for excellence, innovation and leadership. After leaving pantyhose and corporate America behind, Valerie formed her coaching practice where she teaches public speaking and critical thinking skills to contestants competing in top tier pageants. Her coaching practice has been so successful that she’s been featured in two business books about solo-entrepreneurs. An in-demand public speaker and recipient of both Dale Carnegie and Toastmasters public speaking awards, Valerie’s direct, but fun, style is both informative and thought provoking.
