I work with all types of organizations including agencies, corporations, businesses, associations, government agencies, universities, colleges, and non-profits organizations.
What themes do you speak about?
Presentations and workshops focus on increasing motivation and engagement in all aspects of life, through creating reflective experiences, unique simulations, and providing tools for teambuilding, communication, dealing with stress and managing change.
The unique style of the presentations allow supporting of almost any key messages, content or training an organization seeks Some samples of presentations are on the main page demonstrating the ability to present to many different audiences with many different needs. The concept of learning to reflect on perception and connect with the actual applies universally to everywhere a human being is involved. You can see from some of the sample presentations I have shared that it can range from engaging scientists, Shakespearean patrons, healthcare leaders, innovative arts audiences, college and university students, and more.
Typical themes that often are incorporated into presentations include and are not limited to: coping with uncertainty and change; tapping into and harnessing motivation; increasing empathy and understanding; confronting internal stereotypes and other mind traps; using humour for enhancing health; dealing with difficult decisions; understanding specific content/complex issues; building collaboration; developing effective Communication skills; unleashing creativity and innovation; building effective team dynamics.
I also enjoy “training the trainers” in that I deliver workshops, coaching, and ongoing support for those who wish to boost their own impact with presentations and engagement with their audiences.
How long are your presentations?
These vary as they are all customized based on the need and requirements of the event. A keynote speech is typically about 45 minutes to an hour long, but a luncheon or after-dinner program may be shorter. Half-day seminars are 3 – 4 hours in length and a full-day seminar is about 7 hours long. Of course, any program can be customized to meet your needs.
How much do you charge?
Honoraria / fees may vary depending on the format, length of program and location. Please contact me for an accurate quote. The cost per presentation / program is lower when you engage me to present more than one program on the same day – a keynote combined with a breakout session, for example. Discounts are also available for local programs, multiple programs on the same trip, and certain non-profit and government organizations.
