Looking for an Engaging Public Speaker?

Until recently I worked in education. As part of my working life as an educator I often had the opportunity of doing presentations at conferences, workshops and seminars, and I generally had very positive feedback  on these presentations. And I basically fell in love with public speaking. Now that I no longer have the world of education to offer me speaking opportunities I need to reach a new audience. So, do you need an engaging and affordable speaker for an event? See below for some of the topics I can speak about.
