Public Speaking for Your Good Cause

Tired of all those boring speeches where you are more engaged by your smart phone than by the person at the podium? Allow me to enliven your organization's function with an entertaining and thought-provoking talk bound to have your audience leaning in. Now the really good part - I donate the speaking fee, in the name of your organization and mine, to the charity of your choice!

Here are the current topics from which you may choose:

  • Berlin through the Eyes of an Ex-Pat - Humorous and thought-provoking anecdotes from reunification to the present day.
  • Smart Phones & Dumb Me - Humorous and thought-provoking anecdotes about the way technology affects us today.
  • The Transformational Experience of Building a School in Africa  - A personal account of the joys and challenges faced undertaking such an endeavor.

Speaking fee for a 10-15 minute engagement: EUR 300,--. Will be donated in the name of your organization and mine to the charity of your choice (recognized organizations supporting human rights, education and environmental sustainability preferred).

A bit about me:

A widely traveled New York expat living in Berlin since 1992, educated both in the institutions of higher learning and outside of them, lover of language and people, and believer in these simple pairs of words: Freedom & Responsibility / Thanks & Giving / Maximize Happiness.

Interested in talking to me about a possible speaking engagement? Simply send an e-mail to and we can arrange a time for a call. I look forward to hearing from you.
