I've been privileged to speak and perform for audiences ranging from a group of 500 aspiring speakers to 15 accomplished entrepreneurs wearing pajamas. Whatever the setting, I'm committed to inspiring, empowering, and provoking new ways of thinking about story, community, and work.
Keynotes + Breakout Sessions
I offer impactful keynote speeches on topics including the Power of Narrative, Leadership Storytelling, Mindful Communication, and Powerful Speaking. Let's connect and see if it's a good fit!
Past clients include Walt Disney Company, Young President's Association Istanbul, The House of Beautiful Business, Katapult Future Fest, NationBuilder, City of Long Beach, Association of Fundraising Professionals, Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit, and Nonprofit Finance Fund.
Storytelling + Performance
Gathering a group together to hear stories taps into our most deeply rooted desire for community. Even an hour of storytelling can become a touchstone experience for a group, laying a foundation for deep engagement and transformation. I can come solo, facilitate 'story circles' for your group, or curate a group of storytellers to entertain and inspire your audience.
Let's connect to explore the possibilities!
