Speaking

Is your organization or group looking for a dynamic, creative, audience-driven speaker? Do you want your audience to not just simply listen but to apply what they’re hearing? Then read on.

Most organizations realize that presentations and seminars can be an effective and inexpensive means to promote inspiration, motivation, clarity, focus, and change. As an award-winning speaker, I regularly conduct engaging, hands-on, highly participatory 1, 4, and 6-hour workshops, keynotes, seminars/conferences, and retreats for businesses, churches, and other organizations. While some of my workshop and seminar topics for businesses and faith-based organizations are listed below, all speaking engagements are specifically tailored toward your organizations’ needs.

“[Kimberly Gleason’s] presentation was power-packed as she combined hearing, seeing, and doing within the hour presentation. While providing an overall framework of fill-in-the-blank, she wove in a personal introspective exercise, peer-to-peer engagement and coaching, several object lessons, and concluded with a goals chart. The format engaged both the left- and right-sides of the brain and was amazingly affective in opening some avenues where we were “stuck”, whether consciously or unconsciously. I believe Kimberly has a talent and passion for getting to her client’s “whys” and partnering with them to define and plan a strategy for attaining that which is their “passion.” (Ruth Van Hoven, Women on the Move Inforum group leader, Michigan)
