Speaking Engagements

Henry is a frequent guest speaker and specialist in the areas of fundraising, board training, motivation, leadership and organizational development.  All presentations are geared to the needs of each specific audience and the outcomes identified by the host organization.

Even when dealing with the most serious of topics, Henry’s presentations are interlaced with joyful (and, at times, tearful) stories about the human condition that strike at the heart of what really matters in our lives. As stated in a recent interview, “The most powerful stories are, in fact, “small windows” through which the listener experiences his or her own story in a new way.  Often when this occurs something very special–something transformational–happens……….What could possibly be more rewarding than that?”
