Good teaching is 1/4 preparation and 3/4 pure theatre
~ Gail Godwin
Ask yourself these questions when looking for your next keynote speakers:
- Are you seeking a top motivational speaker who grasps and grips the audience's attention while opening their minds to a different way of thinking?
- Have you been repeatedly saying a message and are not being heard? Could Ron be the new vehicle to speak those needs?
- Are you looking to see a complete re-energizing of your staff and have them see a greater opportunity for your organization's growth alongside theirs as well?
"Ron served as the keynote address speaker at four of our Educational Director’s Events and also presented continuing professional development break-out workshops to these Early Childhood Professionals. Ron was inspiring and motivating, providing insight, experience and next day tools to educational professionals who saw immediate positive results in their facility and their students. Ron was punctual, professional and respectful of questions and suggestions. His theme of bringing respect back to education is timely and practical, and his influence will not be short lived."
