Education By Entertainment

I am a speaker and consultant in: career development, leadership development, psychology and human factors/ergonomics.

I offer Education by Entertainment programs which are applicable, educational, entertaining, useful and a ton of fun!!!

The programs are designed to teach participants a bit more about how they sense, perceive, think, learn, remember, make decisions and respond so that they will be safer, more productive and better communicators. 

They are great for businesses, conferences, conventions, schools (grades 4 and up), colleges, universities, youth groups, and special family events such as birthday celebrations.
