Speaking Schedule

Here are my upcoming speaking engagements.

Only engagements that are open to the public are listed. However, know that I also give presentations at private clubs, membership organizations, conferences, and other venues that limit attendance. (As a result, not being listed below is not a guarantee that a date is available.) Times given are in Central Zone.

Because of continued health concerns, some destinations continue to be online or hybrid live/online--so online will continue to be an option any time that benefits a venue.
