After completing a youth speaking program through Omaha’s Urban League when I was 14, I gave my first public speech related to youth. Talking to a neighborhood church about youth in our community, I gave a rousing call to arms for church members to support activities me and my friends by volunteering and with donations.
Ever since then I’ve been charged by getting in front of crowds. From my largest ever speaking engagement to a crowd of 10,000 to support community action to talking to small local groups about youth, social change, personal engagement, and more, there’s nothing as exhilarating to me as being in front of a crowd. I love storytelling, stringing together research and practice, and sharing the examples from my own life and work that make speaking come to life.
After taking a short hiatus from the national speaking circuit, I’ve decided to make myself available to national audiences again. I’m inserting my formal Speaker’s Packet here. It introduces me, details what I talk about, who I’ve spoke to, and shares other details for making decisions about conferences, events, and other occasions that require great speakers.
I’d love to hear what you think of it! Share your thoughts with me? If you do, I’ll give you a discount when you book me! Contact me to talk about the possibilities by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (360)489-9680.
