Dear event planner friends,

That's why I prioritize providing exceptional experiences - starting from our first conversation to post-event follow-up. My aim is to save you time and avoid the stress of an unprepared speaker or a hard-to-work-with diva. You can expect nothing short of excellence from me, and I look forward to collaborating with you!

My commitment to you:

  • I respect your time and expertise. I am prompt and courteous.
  • I understand that plans change. I am flexible and can adapt to your needs.
  • I know that your reputation is on the line. I promise to give my best performance and make you proud.

How to Book Dr. Brenda


Use the 'CHECK FOR AVAILABILITY' button to get started. Complete the form and submit. If you don't have a specific date, add a note in the Additional Comments tab.


 Dr. Brenda will contact you and we'll set up a time to talk. Let's determine if your event or virtual experience is a good fit for my services. We'll move forward from there.


To secure a date on Dr. Brenda's calendar, a 50% deposit of her fee is required. Once the paperwork is in place, we will get to work coordinating details, so that your job is easy.

As we advance toward the event date, we will also coordinate Dr. Brenda's travel and other details and requests as needed.

Step 4: PREP

About 2-3 weeks before the event, Dr. Brenda would love to talk with you again, or with others on your team, in order to customize her presentation. Of course, if you wish to get started earlier, or have multiple meetings, we can accommodate. Dr. Brenda will make sure the final presentation meets the needs of your audience.


When Dr. Brenda arrives on site, she will check the room, conduct the A/V rehearsal with your crew, and tune in to the dynamics of your event. She synthesizes new objectives and information right up to the moment she takes the stage.

A/V Requirements

Dr. Brenda's microphone preference is a countryman (headset) or lavalier (lapel clip-on) mic. She will send your team the PowerPoint presentation in advance - please do not distribute the slides without her permission. Dr. Brenda travels with her own laptop and can plug into your equipment, or she can use your system setup, depending on your preference. Please ensure that any included videos in the presentation are playing properly prior to the event kickoff (videos do not have audio).

Whenever possible, projectors or screens should be set off to the side(s) of the stage and not in the center of the stage so that Dr. Brenda isn’t walking through the light of the projector. Please arrange a time for her to be able to do a quick walkthrough and sound check when none of the attendees are in the room, preferably 30-60 minutes before her presentation.
