Speaking Engagements and Workshops

 

 Let’s face it, death talk isn’t for the faint of heart.

And yet, End-of-Life as a subject is a bona fide thing these days. (Google it if you’re unconvinced!) It‘s everywhere. From Build-Your-Own Coffin Clubs in New Zealand to Death Cafes serving up conversation and cake in over 50 countries.

We’re not satisfied with what’s always been done anymore. Expressing ourselves at end-of-life, wanting positive, personal experiences is becoming the rule, not the exception.

Running the other way screaming in denial is being undone by people hungry for facts, practicality, and inspiration.

Together, let’s be the guiding light people need to create deeply meaningful and memorable goodbyes.

And of course, have fun doing so. Because when you’re talking about End of Life, lightheartedness goes a long way.

I offer a variety of Presentations, ranging from
45-minute Talks to 3-hour Workshops

WORKSHOPS

1) “I Want a Fun Funeral” Planning Your Own Goodbye Party in Advance — Why and How, and making the process fun + a packet for each participant and time allotted to working on it.

Let‘s be honest —“Best intentions” to get your own wishes down on paper usually fail. Having a set time to work on it is invaluable. Add to that getting support and inspiration — a dreaded task will never get easier or less dreadful. We have fun.

2) It’s a Funeral Revolution – Taking our Goodbyes Up a Notch — Creating goodbye celebrations that leave a legacy and make a difference in the world + a packet for each participant and time allotted to working on it.

The power of a group! When creating extraordinary celebrations meant for impact (of any size, they don’t have to be big), brain-storming and sharing of ideas makes a remarkable difference. Whether planning your own legacy or creating one for someone else, it’s the same creative approach.

Talks and workshops are tailored to your group’s size and need.
