Speaking

I write and speak regularly on subjects related to fundraising, writing, neighborhood leadership, community development, and faith and spirituality. I’m especially intrigued by the liminal spaces where two or more of these themes intersect.

My presentations are flexible in length and in their use of multimedia. You can choose from a list of topics, or we can connect by phone or video chat to tailor a topic more closely aligned to your audience, event, and venue.
