Do you need a dynamic speaker for your event?

Do you need a high energy, high value speaker who delivers results-oriented, actionable content in an interactive format? Contact me to discuss your speaker needs. I deliver interactive presentations and workshops targetted specifically to business professionals, sales people and marketers.

As a professional speaker and trainer, my focus is always on providing practical, relevant content that attendees can immediately apply in their work.  Features of my speaking services include:

  • Exercise-focussed trainings (i.e. work completed by audience attendees during the training)
  • Hot seat exercises (audiences love these!)
  • Pre-event surveys (very popular with event organizers)
  • Audience-based case studies (provides more relevant content for attendees)

I appreciate how busy your event attendees are.  That is why my training seminars have attendees complete as much work as possible during the training. That way, the training is more fully absorbed and the work doesn’t get put on the back-burner to other demands when the event is over.

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 sales topic, facilitate a round-table discussion or teach a one day workshop, I can meet your needs.

As my background is in business development, sales, 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.
