A message from Kurt to Event Organizers
“As an event organizer, you have enough to think about without worrying if your speaker will deliver or not. My goal is for your audience to be inspired, not entertained – to combine my insight, passion, humor, and experiences to make each talk unique to the audience and deliver an impactful and inspiring experience. Your audience wants to have their world lit up, not put to sleep. They want authenticity with real experiences. That outcome is my passion. Your needs are my needs. I want to hear what “fly-on-the-wall” feedback you’d most want to hear your audience say after the event, and then with your input, I will craft that experience. After all, your attendees are the real client. They are the people I serve and the ones whose lives I am grateful you are considering allowing me to touch.” – Kurt
