• DYP™ Speaking Services

    Inspire, motivate, engage and interact

    My path to becoming a speaker is on the unconventional side: half my tongue was removed and rebuilt with parts from my forearm. The end result: cancer remission and a strong speech impediment —don’t worry, you can still understand me! Yet none of this has stopped me from discovering my power and surging forward with a new purpose.

     

    In 2016, I accepted the opportunity to speak about “Celebrating Life”, power, gratitude, and discoveries when life gets tough.

     

    That experience led to my second act as a professional speaker, touching the lives of hundreds of people by sharing my extraordinary experience. But it isn’t about me at all! My purpose is to help you discover your power; to help you to overcome adversity and rediscover a deeper you.

     

    Does your organization or faith-based audience need a thought-provoking and inspiring speaker to energize its members? Do you seek to address the hard issues of life yet not sure how to break the comfort zone? My presentations are designed to inspire, motivate, engage, and interact with an audience that takes them beyond the moment and moves them forward with confidence, energy, and POWER!
