Keynote Speaking + Presentations.

Delivering Riveting Presentations That Educate, Inspire + Entertain
Why Andrea?
You’ve got a lot riding on your keynote speaker. They — their message, their style, their presence — all need to “fit” with you, your company, and the flow and feeling of your event.

I’ve been speaking professionally for over 22 years. I’ve also been an event organizer, guiding the content and speakers for the high-stakes stage of the Quad Cities only locally organized TED talk event. So I know how to tailor a message to achieve a business goal, because I’ve done it... over 1,000 times.

Whether in breakouts or ballrooms, over 3 minutes or 3 days, I know how to change perceptions so people change their behaviors… and have fun while we’re at it.
