Liven up your event with a polished yet completely natural speaker.
Host, emcee, moderator
My years of experience have taught me how to read the room, adapt instantly and bring out the best no matter the situation. The result is a dynamic and engaging atmosphere for your event.
You want an event host or emcee who can handle:
- multiple speakers
- managing lightning presentation rounds
- keeping discussion flowing
- wrangling a rowdy audience
Audience members describe me as an entertaining, energizing, supportive host who can put the whole event into perspective.
I’ve hosted, co-hosted or emceed over 25 live events from an intimate rooftop gathering, to a working retreat, to international audiences. It all builds on my training in facilitation and my experience going back years.
Tap my insights and expertise in a more casual setting with informal sessions. These engaging roundtable discussions, open conversations, and lively question and answer times give your participants personal support and answers.
Unlike more formal speaking engagements, these sessions are designed to be intimate, interactive, and highly informative. Whether your audience is seeking new insights into your industry, looking to network with other professionals, or simply hoping to learn more about a particular topic, my informal sessions are a great fit for rural people.
- roundtable discussions
- cohort roundtables
- open conversations
- ask me anything sessions
- one-on-one micro-coaching
