Information and Inspiration


People often call my speaking style "passionate" and "inspiring" and it's because I really believe in what I'm saying!

Whether I'm trying to convince business people to think about history differently -- in ways that can benefit their business AND their community -- or if I'm sharing inspiring stories from women's history, I get fired up -- and audiences enjoy it!

Here's my schedule of upcoming talks. I'd love to see you!

The subjects of my talks include:
Inspiring stories from women's history (especially
   for girls and women)
How your business can benefit from history
Your business/organization history and anniversary
Unitarian Universalist services

I also lead walking tours in Boston, Salem, Cambridge, Ipswich, and Concord, MA.

I've given you talk descriptions at each of those links, but I can always develop a talk or tour for your particular situation (annual meeting? staff retreat? special event? Women's History Month?).

Please contact me to book one of these talks or to develop your own, and you can also check my schedule of upcoming and past appearances. Here is a list of the venues where I've spoken.

And by the way, each one of these talks is a "taste" of what you can learn much more about in my products and books.

Thanks for stopping by!


P.S. You can learn more about my work on the 18th century essayist Judith Sargent Murray here!
