Book me for your next event!



Would you like to increase engagement and learn better communication skills? Book me for your next conference, meeting, retreat or webinar.

meetings And retreats don't always deliver great ROI.


We've all been there: horrible meetings that are nothing but a mind-numbing waste of time.    I design retreats and meetings I'd like to participate in. We collaborate to develop and deliver meaningful, outcomes-based activities so your retreat and meeting creates impact for your organization. My facilitation skills and presentation style get and keep participants engaged and shepherd the group toward stated goals. 

And if your team needs writing and process training and coaching I can take care of that, too.

Conference Workshops & Main Stage Appearances


I love sharing ideas, strategies and insights with audiences large and small. Here’s a short list of some of my speaking gigs:

Keynote Speaker

"Communicating for Change"

I was the keynote speaker for the Balanced Scorecard Institute's annual international user conference. Download the Communicating for Change: Focus, Clarity, Transparency slide deck

"Useful session. Reignited my desire to focus my office’s communication to our internal/external customers.”


Main Stage Presenter

Local and regional marketing and industry conferences

I've been a main stage speaker at several local and regional conferences, including the Triangle American Marketing Association's Funnel Fuel event.

Session Presenter

Local, regional, national & international events

One mark of an effective speaker is repeat invitations. I've been invited to present various sessions 5+ times for the annual meetings of the Insurance & Financial Communicators Association and the North Carolina AIDS Action Network. Apparently, I'm twice as worthwhile as an open bar.

Co-Presenter / Panelist

Various events

I'm frequent panelist on topics related to content marketing, journalism, women in tech and mentoring. I even leveraged my experience as a love advice columnist for a lively discussion at SxSW in 2009 on Love in the Cloud: Online-Only Marriages.
