Hello Event and Meeting Planners,

Let’s begin with expectations.

You can relax.

I’ve been speaking professionally since 1992 (and casually since 1985).

So I bring extensive experience in the craft of delivering effective presentations, as well as in the business of working with meeting planners.

You will impress others.

I work as your partner, helping make you and your event a success.

I also seek opportunities to offer praise and be grateful. So I tell others about the good job that you’re doing.

You will achieve results.

My approach inspires people to make changes.

We need to talk.

This will help us determine if there’s a fit between what you want and what I do.

Then, if you decide to schedule one of my presentations, we begin a partnership.

This has two sides.

What I Do

I bring a proven presentation.

During this, I show my photos of real, live, wild birds. (The photos on this page are samples of my work.)

I review, revise, and rehearse each talk. Often I spend days preparing.

I research your organization so that I know your audience.

If appropriate, I will speak with key members in your organization. This helps me tune my talk to support their vision.

I stay in touch to: 1) Let you know that I plan to show up, and 2) Check on news about your event. I call a month, a week, and a day (or two) before your event.

I arrive an hour early to: 1) Set up my equipment, 2) Survey the venue, and 3) Greet your members. This also let’s me sample the mood and interests of those who attend.

I bring my laptop, projector, and any materials that I need.

I bring an introduction that takes less than a minute to read.

I stay to talk with people after my presentation.

What I Need

Information about your organization, members, and event.

A supportive agenda. If requested, I can offer suggestions that will help make the event a success for everyone.

Attendance by the leaders in your organization. Then they will know what their members might want to do as a result of my presentation.

Some type of compensation.


Call me.

Every success begins with a conversation.
