• Business Programs

    In my years of working and speaking for academic organizations, I have found that many of their issues and concerns are similar to those in the corporate world – how do we create a sense of teamwork and motivate employees?

    How do we inspire those who have lost their fire? It occurred to me that teachers and administrators ultimately prepare people for the corporate world, and I believe that we can learn a lot from each other.

    I provide practical ideas designed to strengthen relationships in the workplace among employees, managers and clients. I speak to those who are discouraged, disappointed and frustrated as well as those who are excited and motivated in their careers.

    I am committed to delivering a high-quality presentation and can tailor most of my sessions to meet the specific needs of your organization.

    After you have read the titles and descriptions, let’s have a meaningful conversation to see if we are a match. If not, I can recommend other qualified speakers who can more effectively meet your expectations and needs.
