I have built a life based on openness, creativity, and connection—and I want my audience to feel the same way.


I've blended my experiences with trauma recovery, with 14 years of art-making and community leadership into a simple message—to change how people feel.

Beth Inglish Creativity Coach Keynote Speaker 8

Beth Inglish is on a mission to put the joy in leadership using creative and emotional wellness to guide the way.


She is the founder of the Nashville Creative Group, a physical and virtual community, which has since grown to nearly 10,000 members. This group arose out of the need to have a support system where creatives in Middle Tennessee could connect, share resources, and encourage each other.


Inglish is a popular speaker and trainer on the topics of creativity, wellness, and connection. Her presentations are mesmerizing, inspirational, and engaging for in-person and virtual events of all sizes.


If you want a Corporate Trainer to get your team to go deeper into their own self discovery, Beth is all in.


Inglish works with companies, conferences, and organizations such as Bridgestone Americas, Salesforce, Facebook Community Leadership Circles, Creative Mornings, National Association of Women Business Owners, Portland Creativity Conference, University of Texas Red McCombs School of Business, Leadership on the Way, and many more.

My goal is to open up hearts and minds so the audience sees themselves and each other with brand new eyes and a renewed sense in their spirit.

Emotional openness and creativity are directly correlated in Beth Inglish’s eyes. Yet, as the visual artist, keynote speaker, and community leader knows from her own experience, burnout can hinder access to creative thinking. It’s almost impossible to generate innovative ideas, collaborate, and develop strong connections if you are feeling overwhelmed. Inglish teaches audiences how to be successful by honoring and overcoming their sufferings.


“The practices all stem from my own story and help people gain confidence so they can have a bigger voice within the organization and create the change they want to see—rather than just going through the motions,” Inglish explains. Triumph over trauma has always been the crux of the speaker’s own story. By developing the right toolkit, daily obstacles no longer took precedence over her life. She was able to go from dark to light.


The artist, who is originally from Port Arthur, Texas, grew up dabbling in almost every creative outlet. However, it wasn’t until her twenties that she took her artistic abilities seriously when she started to realize how cathartic art could be. While going through trauma recovery, Inglish was also healing through abstract painting. It became her way of channeling complex emotions. However, most significant to Inglish was when buyers began to explain that they saw their own stories reflected in her visions. “A CEO explained one day that a painting of mine reminded him of his path of perseverance, which was the first time I realized that by connecting to myself I could create substantial connections with others,” she explains. From there, any time Inglish picked up a paint brush she was reminded that it is her means to drive important conversations.


In conjunction with building her own artistic career, Inglish also founded The Nashville Creative Group in 2012. The physical and virtual community, which has since grown to nearly 10,000 members, arose out of her desire to have a support system where artists could talk about process, projects, and the industry. As Inglish learned how to be a leader, she realized she had to develop even more resiliency in order to be there for others. Through a mixture of art and traditional therapy, she learned how to cope with trauma that had previously set her back. As she gained confidence, Inglish also began speaking about creativity at corporations. However, in 2020 she decided to revamp her curriculum when she realized how much corporate workers were suffering. Her new 45-minute keynote “Leading with Emotional Wellness,” was written around her own story of conquering anxiety to step into the role of successful leader. Knowing that feelings of isolation and discontent were on the rise, companies like Salesforce.com and the University of Texas McCombs School of Business began hiring Inglish. Her workshop was an immediate hit.


“I spent almost 30 years not knowing how to move from fear to joy, which is why I wanted to distill all that I have learned and make healing concepts common knowledge,” she explains. By rallying attendees around the common cause of becoming more curious about their inner lives, and those of their coworkers, Inglish believes they can also transition from suffering to a place of success.


The goal of Inglish’s new curriculum is to help attendees regulate their emotions by implementing practical tactics, all of which can be done at their desk. In developing her framework, Inglish looked to her own step-by-step process for developing self-awareness and handling triggers with ease. The body and breathwork that she teaches her classes is how she copes when unexpected challenges come up. “The end goal is for attendees to know how to get through stress without going into a tailspin,” she explains.


By also learning how to speak honestly about their feelings, Inglish knows that stronger communities and culture can be created. In her breakout groups, people realize they are not alone in their struggles. By connecting on a human level with their colleagues, they leave more empathetic, excited to collaborate, and inspired by one another. In doing the individual work, and relieving their emotional burdens, they become better as a whole. “By getting into groups and talking about their experiences, people realize they don’t have to stuff or stifle because they all go through the same things,” says Inglish.


Her hope is that through sharing, attendees will see the bigger picture around their situation and find a pathway out of it. From there, they will be free to think more creatively, communicate with ease, and express themselves to the highest degree. The end result of these authentic connections is greater innovation, retention, and most importantly, joy. “I sincerely believe that people create the best work and be as successful as possible by moving through pain that has been stopping them,” she says.
