Yes! I’ve actually been called a motivational humorist. My goal as a speaker is to deliver valuable and positive content in an inspiring and engaging way. For me, the best way to accomplish that is through humor! I find that laughter helps bring the information and content to life. Studies have shown that humor improves retention of information, and promotes creative understanding. To quote Ed Dunkelblau, Director of the Institute for Emotionally Intelligent Learning, “Humor builds a learning relationship through the joyful confluence of head and heart.”
The Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, conferred by the National Speakers Association and the International Federation for Professional Speakers, is the speaking profession’s international measure of professional platform skill. It is held by less than 600 people world-wide. For more information click here.

Due to the numerous options (keynote vs. breakout, customization, multiple sessions, CE credit if applicable) it’s best to call my office directly at (800) 395-3905.

If I am traveling from home, I will be flying out of the New York City area, but there’s a good chance that I may be traveling from another event. To avoid travel issues, I will always do my best to fly in the day before the event.
