On a regular basis I get asked to speak, host, emcee, present and participate in both scripted and improvised activities for a variety of businesses, organizations and events. Public speaking might be one of the top fears, but for me it’s one of

the most fun things I enjoy doing. Give me a stage and a mic and I’m at home ready to turn it ON…and I don’t mean the mic.
