Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find out if you’re available for my event?

You can check my schedule and availability here.

Are you a motivational speaker?

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.”

What is a CSP?

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.

Will you customize the Topic, Title or Content of your session?

Of course I can. As a matter of fact, I would love the opportunity to speak to you about your organization’s specific goals and how we can make your event successful for all involved.

You spoke for our organization last year and we want to bring you back. Can you do a different presentation?

Absolutely! If you are a repeat client, please call my office at (800) 395-3905 and they will put you through directly to me.  We can discuss your goals and how I can customize topics or content for your session.

What is the length of your presentation?

It depends on your needs, but generally speaking, keynotes are usually 60 to 90 minutes. Breakout sessions are longer and can be customized to go as long 3 hours.

If our timeline gets skewed during the event, can you adjust your time to get us back on track?

Absolutely! My job is to support you in making sure that your event is a success.

How far in advance can I book you to speak?

The best answer to that question would be ‘as soon as you know’ the date of your event.  I do have many repeat clients and/or events that reserve at least a year in advance.

What is the best way to secure a date?

The quickest and simplest way to secure a date is to click here. That will request a hold for that date. Once you do that, my office will generate a contract for you that must be sent back with a 50% deposit within 2 weeks.

How do I find out about your speaking fee?

Where will you be traveling from? When do you fly in?

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.

What is the ultimate goal of your presentation?

Number 1, to make your life easier. I want to make sure my company not only relieves your stress, but we assist in any way we can to make the event a success. Number 2, to give incredible value to the attendees. We will do this by customizing the presentation to your goals and needs. Lastly, to make you, the person who hired me, look AMAZING!!!!
