Do you need a dynamic speaker for your event?

Contact me to discuss your speaker needs. I deliver interactive presentations and workshops targetted specifically to small business owners.

My focus is always on providing practical, relevant content that attendees can immediately apply to their businesses.

I am Toastmasters trained and so understand the key factors that go into making a seminar or workshop a memorable experience for attendees. Having delivered numerous talks to various business organizations, I am comfortable in front of audiences large and small.  My presentations are customized to your length requirements. So whether you need someone to deliver an hour long seminar on a marketing topic, facilitate a roundtable discussion or teach a one day workshop, I can meet your needs.

As my background is in business development, marketing and operations, I prefer to speak on topics within these areas.  Below are my main speaking topics, however, I can customize topics and titles to meet your event needs.

Ruth developed a presentation and resources for our pilot business program and facilitated the first workshop. The one-day workshop and course material were extremely well received and garnered positive feedback from all attendees. Ruth is efficient, effective, knowledgeable and professional, as well as being a dynamic facilitator. I would highly recommend her for facilitation and workshop development projects.

We originally hired Ruth to speak on a sales panel at our annual event.  After hearing Ruth speak, we engaged her to teach workshops on social media. We had consistently positive feedback from participants. She provided practical, actionable training in an interactive environment.
