Speaking Engagements

Are you uncertain of where to find an interesting speaker for your next conference or grand rounds?

Here’s how you can book a versatile and engaging lecturer for your next educational event or keynote, in less than an hour!

Will the speaker have the experience and background to convincingly educate my audience? I have been “in the business” for nearly 35 years, and have had a career that is exclusively dedicated to trauma. I have traveled extensively, written about trauma for over six years, and visited hundreds of trauma centers around the world.

The speaker may not be well-versed in the topics I have in mind. I do not dictate what talks I will give. I expect you to tell me what your audience wants to hear about. Topics that affect your providers are most important, and your presentation is tailored specifically to them.

Worried that your speaker will pitch their talk over the heads of your audience? I will ask you to provide a detailed breakdown of your audience as I begin working on your presentation. That way, I can include information applicable to every level of trauma professional in your audience.

But I have several spots to fill in my program. I enjoy giving multiple talks! I have given two or three presentations in one day, and more. I will talk until my voice gives out!

I had a last-minute cancellation! How will I get another speaker to replace them? I am frequently, but not always, available on short notice. I can put a custom talk together for your audience in less than 48 hours. Give me a call ASAP and I’ll see if I can help!

I’ve had previous speakers just fly in, talk, and fly back out without engaging with my audience. I will arrive before your conference begins, and will not fly out until after it is over. I firmly believe in mingling with your audience, answering questions, and adding value to the program you have put together.

My conference is in a small hospital. Nobody wants to come to my venue. I have spoken at venues with as few as six participants and as many as 1500! Smaller groups give me a chance to make a very personal connection with your attendees.

I have a budget to consider. I’m afraid the speaker will be just too expensive. I do not have a set honorarium for my talks. I ask that you cover my travel expenses (coach air, hotel, car), and then you decide what is fair for the value I add to your event.

But my venue is located outside the United States. I welcome international opportunities. I live in a Delta Airlines hub, and can get most places in the world very easily.

My “Speaker Satisfaction” guarantee

I am so confident you’ll be pleased with my performance, it comes with this guarantee. If you and your audience are not completely satisfied by my performance, then you don’t have to pay me. It’s as simple as that. Merely reimburse any outstanding travel expenses, and we’ll call it even.
