A great guest speaker should be 2 things: A great guest and an engaging speaker, no matter what the room size. I can talk to an intimate group of 10 as well as a large audience consisting of hundreds of people. We have given talks on a wide range of topics in various venues. Professor John Martin and Annie Guthrie design all of their speaking engagements to suit a group’s specific needs and tailor the event to capture, motivate, and leave the audience with a sense of being entertained as well as educated. Having a guest speaker is an ideal way for industries to motivate staff and facilitate fresh perspectives in a single afternoon.
Events and venues include: universities, corporate retreats, businesses meetings, luncheons, conferences, conventions, workshops and seminars.
