Speaking

Microsoft, Amazon, TEDxStLouis, the Cleveland Clinic, Notre Dame University, and Harvard Business School are some of the groups that have brought me in to speak.

I was a teacher and a public speaker long before I was a writer. My parents believed you couldn’t get very far in this world if you couldn’t talk to a group, so they cajoled me into my first speech competition when I was 13. I loved it. (It might have helped that I won). I speak regularly for academic audiences, businesses, and conferences. Put me in front of a group, and you can expect illuminating stories, scientific evidence, interactive activities, practical examples, and strategies you can use tomorrow.

I love to work with smart people. Here are suggested keynotes and workshops for different audiences.
