The director of the school needed someone to speak at the Curriculum Night to a room full of prospective families. The vast majority of the teachers in the staff meeting kept their eyes down, pretending to be engaged in something else, hoping he wouldn't ask them to be the representative at the event. I saved them all from having to come up with a reason why they couldn't do it by blithely volunteering, "I want to do it. I love speaking in front of crowds."

Perhaps you've heard the statistics about how people fear public speaking more than they fear death. Well, those statistics don't apply to me. I don't fear public speaking (or death, for that matter); I thrive in it. An audience full of people waiting to be inspired, motivated, or moved to action is an opportunity like no other. For me to be able to share stories that will shape the perspectives of people ready to make a positive impact on the world is what I live for.

I've been presenting in front of audiences of all sizes for more than 20 years––as a musician, at poetry events and literary readings, and as a storyteller in a professional capacity. I know what it takes to engage an audience, deliver unique and dynamic content, and make a deeper connection with people that is sure to be memorable. 

If you'd like to learn more about how you can book me to speak at your event, contact me or set up a free 30-minute chat for us to talk details.
