PUBLIC SPEAKING

I found my love of public speaking back in 1993, when I was asked to emcee the Academic & Athletic Banquet at the First Baptist Church of Jeffersontown. From that moment on, I took advantage of every opportunity for public speaking that came my way.

I have had the awesome privilege of being requested to speak at various local, regional and national events and conferences. Every public speaking engagement that I accept is tailored to the intended audience, where I connect with them through personal storytelling and straightforward content that is easy to understand and apply.

Since I work in the tourism industry, the majority of my speaking engagements focus around marketing topics that are applicable to the industry; however, I am well-versed to speak on other topics such as personal branding, success, leadership and productivity.

Here is what a few people had to say about me as a public speaker:
