About beyond speaking


Early in my childhood, in a single-mom household with four kids, we coudln't afford cable, but my mom was able to get her hands on a set of encyclopedias. I'd choose a letter at random and read away. I loved learning interesting, new and unexpected things, and I've carried that with me my whole life. I now find myself as the president of one of the largest speakers bureaus in the US, where I'm able to talk to and learn from some of the most amazing people in the world (It's totally cheating, I know!).

Just like you, I'm always busy and strapped for time, so I only want to focus these interviews on stories from these speakers and writers that are interesting and unexpected, that go beyond the normal to the fascinating. If you and I are going to spend our time on this, it better be worth. Thanks for going on this journey with me!
