I really love public speaking and training! I offer the speaker series on 3 different platforms:
- Pet Industry Business
- Community and Culture Programs
I enjoy offering talks & workshops to Non-profit Groups as a Fundraising or Outreach Event. For this type of service I schedule a time to come and speak to a small group at your location for free. We choose the topic in advance and you and I both promote the event. Your organization charges a fee to attend and you keep the money for your organization. In return I present a topic, with or without powerpoint, offer a question and answer time and am provided with an area to sell my cat related products or books, and promote Purr View TV Show and blog.
Pet Industry Business
As a draw for a Pet Store, Boutiques, or other pet industry business or event, I offer talks or workshops to attract the feline lifestyle market to your store or event and provide education and entertainment with a humorist twist! Cat lovers have so much fun! For this type of service I charge $125 for a two hour block of time usually consisting of setting up, offering the talk, question and answer time, advising clients on product purchases and break down.If the location is over 20 miles a reasonable gas fee is added. Parking fee’s are provided by the business. I am able to promote Purr View TV Show and blog.
Community and Culture Programs
I offer speaker talks through Adult Education, Community Education and Cultural Programs, Fairs, Libraries, Museums, etc. These types of services vary and the terms are between two parties. Please contact me directly to see how I can become involved. Im very eager to find a way to work with you.
