To present a complete program we ask for at least 45 minutes. However, we can tailor our presentation in content and length to meet your organization's needs.

What is the Style of the Presentation?

We try to make our presentations as interactive as possible, asking for audience participation throughout. We will also work with the requester to alter our presentations to fit their needs.
