Keynote & Workshop Topics

Radical Generosity: How giving away 50% of your time can change your community!

What if radical generosity could be built into the very fabric of a for-profit business? What if you could grow a for-profit business and make a substantial social impact? What if we could empower individuals, organizations, and companies as they make our communities better places to live?

Not a Pedestrian Life: How to make the most of the detours!

These speeches start with a little of my story, before seeking to inspire and motivate. These speeches can be especially targeted for the audience, and have been particularly well received with military-connected (including spouses and veterans) audiences.

5 No-Nonsense Steps to Advocating for Yourself and Your Family

Advocating for yourself and your family can seem daunting, especially when it feels like it’s you against the world. Sometimes you just can’t take one more “no.” We get it, we’ve been there too. We’ll talk about
preparing to advocate, ways to present a problem and possible solutions, how to “reality check” yourself, and how to address some of the common obstacles you may face. We’ll talk about the differences between informal and systemic advocacy, and how not to reinvent the wheel. This will be an
opportunity to help all of us see that we have all that we need to successfully advocate for ourselves and our families.

The power of stories for business

The use of stories and storytelling is emerging as a powerful communications tool and becoming integral to how businesses define their content marketing. While we’ve all seen or experienced the use of a dramatic story in a television commercial or customer testimonial, many businesses are finding that stories offer a new and relevant way to connect with audiences in other forums beyond advertising. This speech explores how businesses can use stories to build community among staff, customers, and their local town or city.

The power of stories for non-profits

Studies show that we are wired to remember stories much more than data, facts, and figures. However, when data and stories are used together, audiences are moved both emotionally and intellectually.  When told effectively, your non-profit’s stories have the potential to motivate people like you and me to give, volunteer, sign petitions and participate in programs. This speech explores how non-profits can tell their story effectively, consistently, and with tangible results!

Content Strategy

Content is king, but content isn’t as valuable without a strategy. Speeches include discussions on content creation, SEO, advertising campaigns, social media marketing and traffic growth., and how to develop an effective communications strategy, that enables you to tell your story or the story of your business effectively, efficiently, consistently, and with tangible results!

Intro to Copyright Law and Social Media

We cover the basics of US copyright law, discuss the difference between personal and commercial use, and the rules for fair use. We’ll also talk about what to do when you’re in the wrong, and how to protect yourself when your copyright is infringed!

Women in New Businesses

These speeches target stay-at-home mothers and women starting their own companies. Talks like these have included online marketing, balancing home and work, product development and introducing various website companies that could help grow companies and ideas. I particularly focus on military connected women including spouses and veterans.

The Value of the Arts for Church Communities

These speeches can focus on a particular medium or school or Art or literature, including the work of a specific artist or writer. These speeches can be framed for women’s breakfasts, Youth Group retreats or Sunday school classes, or in the right context, a bible talk or sermon. These speeches are born out of my academic research and experience working for and with churches and church communities.

A Writer’s Manifesto

Why do you create? Why do you write? What motivates you and can you articulate it? This is a speech leading to a workshopping of ideas. A mixture of literary history, philosophy, theology, and a writing workshop!
