Presentation Topics

The common denominators in all of my presentations are energy, passion, humor, engagement, and fun! Whether the audience is an intimate workshop with 20 people or a keynote with an audience of 1,000, the principles of sound pedagogy and compelling communication are modeled through storytelling, experiential activities, music, powerful visuals, videos, and interaction with participants.

Here is a summary of the principles behind my presentations on Emotional Intelligence as applied to teaching. This article appeared in “Innovation Abstracts” published by the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD). Emotionally Intelligent Teaching to Empower and Engage: Insights from Neuroscience It is also the basis for an article I wrote for Magna Publications on leadership, explaining how insights from neuroscience and emotional intelligence can intersect to create successful, vibrant, empowering leadership practices. It appears in both the “Academic Leader” and “The Best of the 2020 Leadership in Higher Education Conference” where I have been an invited presenter since 2019.
