Public Speaking & Presentations

One of my favorite professional activities is giving presentations. I’ve been providing them to parents, students, school staff, and corporations for over a decade. My goal as a presenter is to provide useful information in a fun, engaging manner. Since my book, Tech Generation: Raising Balanced Kids in a Hyper-Connected World will be coming out in August of 2018, this is my most popular presentation topic. I present on many of the topics below, but some are provided by my colleagues at the APACenter.
