Frequently Asked Questions

why should i book you as my event's keynote speaker?

My strengths lie in capturing your audience's attention through stories, humor, and practical solutions. I know the event planning business, so working together is easy - from our first chat to the post-event follow-up. I customize my presentations to your audience, and provide actionable insights that can make an impact long after the event.

do you do virtual engagements?

Yes! I participate in virtual events, including keynotes, workshops, and panels. I can tailor a program specifically to your organization or event’s needs.

will you hold a date for my event?

I'm happy to place a  "soft hold" on the calendar with no obligation to you. This means you'll get first right of refusal if another request comes in for the same date. 

To make a firm booking on my calendar, a 50% deposit of my fee is required. Once the paperwork is in place, I'll get to work coordinating details, so that your job is easy.

do i need to use an agency to book you?

No, I book engagements directly with clients. For inquiries, click on the 'Book Dr. Brenda' button and complete the form.

will you be an expert source for my show/article?

I can contribute to online and TV news stories, commenting on everything from burnout to financial freedom to RV living. Send a note to with story and deadline details and someone from the team will be in touch.
