Keynotes and large group workshops
I am available to speak to groups of any size. My style is humourous and engaging, providing many stories and examples from the organization or industry to illustrate my points. I make my talks very down to earth and extremely practical, so that the audience walks away with both the inspiration and the tools to improve their communication styles. Large group sessions can be anywhere from an hour to three and a half hours. The talk will be customized to address the needs of the group. Contact me to book a workshop.
Custom engagements are varied and can include event rehearsals, document review, feedback on live or webcast events or plain language editing. I often help senior executives prepare for the Q&A portion of Earnings Calls and Investor Days. I can provide coaching and feedback on both content and delivery for large sales presentations or offsites. I can help build and roll out the communication plan for strategy. I can help prepare for community consultations. Contact me to discuss your specific need.
