Speaking

If you are interested in having us speak for your group, please contact us. We have four completely different presentations prepared, and can also customize a presentation if needed. In anticipation of our new little crew member, we are taking a hiatus from speaking engagements in the near future, but we are happy to schedule an event farther out in the future.
