I frequently speak at various events, ranging from conference presentations and presentations for nonprofit corporations, to giving interactive sessions and workshops for smaller groups and nonprofit startups. If you would like to discuss the possibility of having me come to your next event or speak to your organization, please feel free to contact me at
