Frequently Asked Questions


What kinds of organizations do you work with?

I works with all types of organizations including businesses, associations, government agencies, schools, colleges, and non-profits organizations.  To view a representative sample of the clients I have worked with click here.

What topics do you speak about?

Speeches and training programs focus on increasing employee motivation and engagement through teambuilding, improving communication, dealing with stress and managing change.

The most frequently requested presentations include:

  • The Magic of Change

  • Motivation & Teambuilding

  • Humor: Jest for the Health of it!

  • Dealing with Difficult People: From Conflict to Collaboration

  • Customer Service with a Smile

  • Creativity: Thinking Outside the Box

  • Engaging Presentations

How long are your presentations?

A keynote speech is typically about 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?

Fees may vary depending on the format, length of program, location, and whether you need additional consulting services.  After we speak by phone I can give provide an accurate quote.

How are expenses handled?

Fees do not include travel expenses, which are billed separately.  Upon request, however, I am happy to quote an all inclusive fee, which includes all travel expenses except a hotel room.  There is no additional charge for airfare, mileage, tolls, car rental, meals, etc.   If lodging is needed, only the room and tax are charged to the client’s master account. 

Is there a way for me to save on your fee?

There are several ways to save on the fee.  The cost per 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.  Please inquire. 

Do you present after dinner programs?

Yes.  I especially enjoy after-diner programs. For example, for awards banquets I present a program that combines magic, humor and audience participation while highlighting the qualities of the people who deserve recognition. 

Why should we choose you to speak for our group?

I hold the designation of Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) from the National Speakers Association, the speaking industry's international measure of professional platform skill.   CSP is conferred only on those accomplished speakers who have earned it by meeting strict criteria through a rigorous 5 year certification process. Furthermore, I have a long track record of presenting outstanding programs that deliver solid content in an engaging and memorable way.
