“Peggy O’Neill is the messenger and the message. She exemplifies walking tall!” so spouts FedEx co-founder, Frank Maguire. Peggy is an award-winning keynote speaker and author. For over thirteen years, she has inspired powerful positive change in corporate and women’s groups across the US with her unforgettable, dynamic, and humorous keynote speeches and trainings.

Coming from the field of psychotherapy, and drawing from her extra-ordinary experiences triumphing over the many trials- being a little person living in a big world- Peggy lends her expertise in the areas of personal empowerment, celebrating diversity and enhancing professional performance.

Peggy has presented to over 100,000 people in organizations such as FEMA, Chase Bank, Diversity Works, Texaco, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Lucent Technologies, Ball Aerospace, Lockhead Martin and many others.

Peggy has authored two books: Walking Tall: Overcoming Inner Smallness, No Matter What Size You Are, and Little Squarehead, an illustrated children’s book. Featured on the cover of Speaker Magazine, Peggy is also a contributing teacher in the films The Opus, and Tapping the Source. Additionally, Peggy serves young students, offering anti-bullying and self-esteem programs.

Happily, Peggy brings real solutions to audience members and their hosting organizations. She celebrates her daily life in Ojai, CA, a small town near Santa Barbara.
