Speaking At Your Next Event
I love to public speak- whether in front of a large audience, small private event or virtually to thousands of participants around the world.
I bring not only my subject expertise and knowledge but also a sense of humor. I like to make sure the audience has fun while learning. Laughter is not only the best therapy but it’s also a wonderful educational tool.
I can speak about a wide range of nonprofit topics, including:
– Modern day storytelling
– Marketing strategy (jumpstarting your digital footprint, email marketing, what your marketing mix should include)
– Social media marketing (the do’s and don’ts, how to create a strategy, how to engage and build a following, how to drive traffic to your site)
– Communications and media outreach
– Content creation including utilizing user generated content to engage supporters and followers
ALL of the above are tied to fundraising in my talks. Marketing and communications are not stand alone. My goal when I speak is to ultimately help your organization build your donor list and increase donations.
Besides leading a session, I’m also happy to run a workshop or sit on a panel. Participants will receive all the slides and resources mentioned during my talk. For example, this modern day storytelling cheat sheet I handed out after a recent talk in Las Vegas. To learn more about me, please read my full bio.
I’d be happy to discuss with you the possibility of speaking at your upcoming event. Please fill in the form to the right with event details and I will be in touch shortly. Looking forward!
