Frequently Asked Questions
How long are your programs?
The programs can be structured to meet your needs – 30 minutes to a full day. I can also provide multiple programs on the same day as well as multiple programs over several days.
How do you tailor your programs?
As soon as you decide that I’m the right speaker for your event, I start doing my homework. I study your website and ask you for information about your company or organization. Materials such as professional or trade journals, newsletters, annual reports – anything that will help me understand your company or association – are always helpful.
I also ask some specific questions designed to help me understand your people, and if it’s appropriate, I even talk to others in your organization to get as much insight as possible.
I create the program to reflect the key points that you want addressed, integrate the information that I’ve collected in my research, and add appropriate stories, illustrations, and humor from my background and experience. The result is a unique program that is just right for your group.
One of the best compliments I get from clients and audience members is, “You really understood us; it was as if you worked right alongside us every day.”
Are you funny?
My audiences seem to think so. I don’t consider myself a humorist, but humor and fun are an important part of my message and my presentations. I believe people learn better when they’re enjoying the process, don’t you?
How could we use you for our organization?
At meetings and conventions, I’m often asked to open or close. In addition, some organizations have used me as the speaker for a luncheon, a spouses’ program or a break-out session. Need a M.C. or panel discussion leader? I can fill those roles as well.
In a corporate setting, I provide training for managers and staff and frequently speak at management retreats, employee recognition events, awards banquets, or special events.
Our services also include consulting and employee engagement solutions. We work with you to analyze your needs, create programs to address those needs, and then walk you and your people through the processes that bring results.
Does it matter how many people are in the audience?
No. I work with and speak to groups of all sizes.
Are you one of those demanding, difficult, egotistical speakers?
Absolutely not! I find prima donnas annoying, don’t you? An important part of my job is to make your job easy. My set-up and travel requirements are simple and are made clear up front so there are no surprises. My goal is to make our working together an easy, pleasant, enjoyable experience.
