Speaking Engagements

I enjoy the art of making a fine presentation. My favourite topics are future oriented, highlight connections between the past and current innovations and are meant to invoke action in every day life. My strengths are presenting initiatives and ideas through the use of stories and graphics.

Topics that I offer:

  • Community-based learning models
  • Skillshop: Small Businesses as Public Classrooms
  • Future Learning Directions
  • Spectrum of Community Engagement
  • Participant Engagement in the Service Delivery System
  • Buycott Method of Community Organizing
  • Alternative Education Models
  • Sport for Development
