The Motivation Method: Strategies for Unstoppable Motivation
Have you ever had difficulty sustaining your motivation? When life keeps throwing you curveballs, it can feel like an impossible task!

Before she was a motivational maven, Corrie LoGiudice experienced this often.  In a span of 4 years, she experienced miscarriage, abuse, divorce and suicide loss.  What she’s learned through her own experience is growth stagnates when you don’t change your strategy to accommodate your current reality.  She eventually figured out that there are 5 areas that if out of alignment will slow your motivation.  When she strategized how to address the imbalances, both hers and her client's motivation becomes unstoppable.  She calls it the Motivation Method, and in this talk she summaries how it works and how you can start using it today.

This keynote is humorous, honest, and motivational.  The audience will not only be captivated but will leave the event feeling more confident in their own abilities and prepared to go get their goals.
Takeaways:
-Clarify where you are, where you want to be, and what’s getting in the way.
-Build your confidence by doing things that scare you regularly.
-Surround yourself with the people you need to support your vision.
-Devote time to your self-care, education and personal development to enhance your performance.
-Design time management systems that keep you consistent and set you up for success.

Corrie LoGiudice is a motivational strategist & speaker, host, influencer and motivational maven.  She’s a former SVP, single mom, and survivor of miscarriage, divorce, abuse & suicide loss.  She utilized her trauma to fuel her motivation instead of set her back, and now teaches others to do the same. 
As the host of the Corrie Lo Show, Corrie each week showcases strategies, tips, resources and interviews on how to lead motivated, passionate and purposeful lives and businesses.
Corrie is a mental health awareness advocate, which drives her to provide value and healing to others each and every day.  She shares her strategies through her show & podcast, coaching, speaking engagements, writing, online courses, and social media platforms.  She also has been featured in the Mighty, Authority Magazine, Thrive Global, Elite Daily, Girlboss, HelloGiggles, the Everygirl, Insider & Business Insider.

Camp Pa Qua Tuck
Bridget Reilly Costello joined Camp Pa Qua Tuck in 2009 as the Summer Director. In 2010, she became the Executive Director. In April, 2019 Bridget retired from her position at the Camp but was delighted that the Board of Directors embraced her idea of P/T work promoting the camp as she eased her way into retirement. Bridget was raised with a Special Needs brother and is his Guardian. This had more to do with her decision to pursue advocacy for individuals with Special Needs than anything else.
 
Proud mother of 3, wife to Michael, a Veteran and a Purple Heart recipient, Bridget volunteers at the V.A. Hospital in Northport. Additionally, one of her children was born with a non-functioning liver and Bridget was able to donate a portion of her liver to save her baby 20 years ago. As a result, she has been a member of the Alpha 1 Foundation for 20 years and has traveled all over to speak to others facing this life-changing situation.
 
 
Bridget spent 30 years in the non-profit world and has observed the best practices in several large non- profits. Her goal has been to bring those best practices to Camp Pa Qua tuck. Bridget is also a member of AFP, the Association of Fundraising Professionals. She has great regard for her predecessors at camp and hopes that she can carry on the legacy of continuous improvement that they have initiated.

In addition to our foundational services we have many programs that set us apart, in which we are the only providers.
