Looking for a keynote speaker who can finally explain PR?

My “What is PR?” talk will make you laugh, perhaps cry, and you will come away understanding how journalists work – finally. What is a story? What isn’t a story? My talk – told as a series of stories from my years as an award-winning journalist – will leave your team with a concrete understanding of how to identify meaningful stories and how to approach journalists.

As a keynote speaker, I’m easy to work with and I help promote my talks on social media. Audiences love me because they learn while having fun.

 “That was the best introduction to PR I have ever seen, and I’ve gone to a lot of PR talks.”
