Speaker & Storyteller

Deanne Welsh was born in Germany to Canadian parents. Her eclectic past includes ten years of sailing on ships around the world, a year in Canada, four years in Germany and two years at the Black Forest Academy in Germany before settling in San Diego, where she currently resides with her husband and son.

She knows what it is like to be an outsider and to be crippled by the lies of people pleasing and chameleon-like behavior: be nice, behave, be quiet. On a quest to free others from the shackles of shame and silence, she engages and equips her audience through personal stories and practical strategies.

Deanne has been speaking in both corporate settings and to small groups for over 15 years. Her style is engaging, personal and inspiring. Audience members leave her sessions with new insight, break-through moments, and the motivation to grow in their connection to God and with others.
