Speaking Engagements

Over four decades of exploring the globe have enabled me to develop and refine the Art of Travel. My experience has led to the discovery that you will get the most out of your travels through an openness to all the variations and similarities found upon the planet.  All that I have learned and discovered through my own openness informs both my presentations and consulting services.

When it comes to travel, I put myself “in the shoes” of those whom I consult to and enjoy sharing my personal adventures and discoveries.

 

Here is my list of  travel talks, shows, and presentations for 2017.  I look forward meeting you.

Au plaisir de vous rencontrer à une de mes activités en 2017.
