I’m glad to entertain an offer to work with you.
Please respect the following practical considerations since I continue to live with unrelenting Rheumatoid Disease (RD) while working full-time to improve the lives of people with RD.
- Contact me as early as possible for speaking requests.
- Feel free to use an image or biography from the press kit.
- Quote this website in context, crediting its author.
Expectations and policies
Each of these policies is a result of experience. Yes, I’ve been scheduled to speak at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the same event, and have prepared presentations for no-show clients.
* If you’d like a consultation, please email me a proposal.
* I travel with an aide to provide physical assistance.
* Please ask before scheduling a speaking event early in the morning or late in the day.
* Long distance flights should be business class or “more room” seats.
* “Dear blogger letters” and requests to do your work for you without compensation go to the cute little waste basket on my MacBook.
* Yes, I do lots of volunteer & pro bono work for charities I choose to support, but not necessarily your company.
* Do not demand I walk long distances over uneven ground, stand for long periods, or use bar stool seating.
* This website does not entertain requests to display in-text advertising or product reviews; see Disclaimer page for complete advertising policy.
