Professional Speaking

I love to Emcee conventions, festivals and other special events like birthday parties and anniversaries.  Such events always spark my creativity. I am known among my colleagues for my customized poems and songs to celebrate their occasions.

Here are the formal topics on which I speak:

Funeral Celebrant:

“Multi-culturalism and Diversity in the Workplace” In our global economy, the reality is our workplaces are becoming more ethnically diverse than ever. Canadians are exceptionally accepting of their colleagues from abroad.  But there are problems. Language continues to be a barrier. My message is “It’s all about Communication.” see

“How Sweet It Isn’t”: What happened to my health when I stopped eating sugar (except from fresh fruit) five years ago. Sugar is everywhere and it causes more disease than you think. It’s as addictive as cocaine but we wouldn’t dream of giving our children cocaine! This hard hitting presentation will have you thinking twice about what you feed yourself and your children. See www.WholeReal to read My Sugar Story, published in the book, The Magic of Living Nutrition, by Rachel Joy Olsen.

The Bogs, Burnouts and Blessings of Volunteering: honouring volunteers. (Suitable for volunteer appreciation events)

The Top 8 Over 80: Doubting Limitations (Inspirational, motivational for any audience)

Failing Forward: How to embrace risk and learn from your failures. (Corporate workers seeking opportunities for growth)

Language of Leaders: Change your words, change your life. (Leaders who wish to improve how they are perceived and how their messages are received)


I’m not just a speaker. I am an influencer. Nothing is as satisfying as communicating a message that the audience soaks up like a sponge, oozing with enthusiasm at their new discoveries.
