It’s an annual celebration of the voices that inspire humanity.
We believe that we can make a better world if we LISTEN to each other’s stories.
Stories teach us about our past, provide a framework for the present, and empower us to envision the future. Through stories, we learn about each other, connect with one another, and build a bridge for engagement. Your experiences, your challenges, and your triumphs produce valuable lessons from which we all can learn.
Think of a speaking platform like TEDx, meets the Grammy’s, with a touch of American Idol. We’re the platform where stories will be shared, heroes will emerge, and lives will be changed.
Maybe you’ve never thought of sharing your story, maybe you’ve never been asked, but if you’ve ever wanted to contribute to making a better world, this is your chance. Oh, and if you don’t know how to write and share your story from stage, don’t worry, we have you covered with free guidance and mentorship.
Your original song or story could be chosen as the Grand Prize Winner. And at the very least, your life, and the lives of others will improve in ways you cannot yet imagine.

You’ve been challenged, you’ve been rejected, and you’ve been told you’re not good enough. You’ve conquered fear, triumphed over anxiety, and risen over doubt. You found the courage, discovered your drive, and learned to thrive. This is your story, and now more than ever, the world needs good stories.
The Voices of Impact Awards™ is for everyday people with an extraordinary song or story with a message that will elevate, inspire, and help others transform their lives.
This is no ordinary awards program. This is a celebration of people like you with a valuable story the world needs to hear. What you do for work, and how long you’ve been doing it does not matter. If you’ve presented a thousand times, or if you’ve never presented in public does not matter. What matters is that you are willing to open your heart and create a positive impact with your message.
You’ve dreamed of an opportunity to be heard and to be seen by the world. You’ve dreamed of being recognized among other innovators, masterminds, and thought-leaders. Whatever your reason, if you believe that you can shape the future of humanity, inspire improvements in society, or light the path for the generations that follow, we welcome your participation in the Voices of Impact Awards™.
