I’m Haydee – Keynote Speaker | Workshop Trainer | Twin mum | Recovering Perfectionist.
A defining moment as a 23-year-old Lóreal intern led me to a successful 20-year career as a professional speaker.
On that particular day in an executive boardroom, I decided I would never again throw away a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity like I just had. I made it my life’s mission to find out how to build a “STAND OUT” personal brand. One that would make me visible, credible, and profitable.
I began researching, studying, and networking with successful people. I applied everything I learned so that, one day, I would be…Packaged for Success.
Four years later, I became the youngest marketing manager of the world’s no. 1 cosmetic brand.
I meet individuals daily with brilliant minds and advanced degrees – amazing people but shocking marketers of their own brand. The world will never know them. What wasted potential. I don’t want this for your audience, your team.

I have to admit I’m “obsessed” with Packaging People for Success.
Why, you might ask?
For 30 years, I’ve researched and worked with successful, powerful personal brands.
You know who I’m talking about? That person who walks into a room and their presence captivates you?
And when they speak, they have you hanging on their every word.
I discovered that successful people are not born with a success gene. They learn and implement certain skills to be Packaged for Success.
For the past 20 years, I’ve taught these skills to thousands of professionals and entrepreneurs. The Packaged for Success signature program has been implemented in hundreds of Fortune 500 companies.
Together with my team, I’ve been privileged to coach celebrities, 14 pageant winners, Miss World 2014 and Miss Universe 2018.
Owning a 7-figure personal development consultancy, led me to expand into the retail and manufacturing industries. This has provided me with some unique global insights and experience.
I’m proud to say that my “Packaged for Success” book ranked no.1 international Amazon bestseller in 11 categories!
Every day I thank God for the abundance and miracles he has showered me with. Starting with my AWESOME husband Nic, Andrea (10), and (busy, but delightful 3-year-old twins) Gia and Nic Jnr. Today, I live my dream lifestyle in the Temecula wine region of Southern California.
