Need a Speaker?

Digh_aca0945_500 Bring 37days and Life is a Verb to life!

I'd love to come speak to your group about living a more intentional and mindful life--a life without regrets--the focus of my writing here on 37days and in my most recent book, Life is a Verb: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful, and Live Intentionally.

Or about diversity, inclusion, and leadership--the focus of my consulting work.

One of the things I love most is speaking and teaching. Having spoken to groups that range in size from 10 to 10,000, I'm at ease in front of any size crowd and I love the energy I get from engaging with people. I've had the great pleasure to do keynotes and workshops in conferences around the world, having traveled and worked in over 40 U.S. states and 60 countries (so far!). You might enjoy this news article about a recent speech of mine to over 3,500 counselors.

If you think your group would enjoy my story-based insights with a lot of laughter thrown in, let me know, providing as much info as you can about the group, where it is located, and preferred time of year (if known). Email me at patti@pattidigh.com to get started!

Here's what a few clients have said:

“Patricia Digh is one of those rare speakers who can immediately connect with her audience, whether she is speaking to a small group of 10 or an auditorium of 10,000. She weaves stories and anecdotes into an amazingly perceptive and sharp look at issues and situations. And she brings her own fresh and thoughtful perspective, grounded in reality and research.” -Gay Clyburn, Director of Communications & Information, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

"Having served as the director of education for several large associations, I am quite selective and critical when it comes to evaluating speakers. It seems so difficult to find speakers, especially female speakers, who are engaging and who have a substantive message. Patti Digh is one of them! Patti connects with the audience immediately with her stories and her tailored messages. I love Patti's speaking style. It's low key yet dynamic enough to command an audience of 6000+." -Anne Blouin, CAE, American Society of Association Executives and The Center for Association Leadership

"Patti brings warmth and wit to all of her ‘conversations’ and has an uncanny ability to connect with the individual no matter the size of the audience. Her ideas, messages and wisdom quietly come to life through beautiful stories based on the complexities of life and are seamlessly made part of the fabric of her presentation. She is a real person, a woman of principle, and a must listen." -William H. Banzhaf, Executive Vice President, Society of American Foresters

"Our members run multi-million dollar programs and demand top quality speakers. Patti Digh did an outstanding job of engaging this group over two days. The evaluations were excellent and I could not have been more pleased. Her ability to build rapport with her audience through sincerity, warmth and being a good listener as well as speaker, makes her one of the best we have had.” -Barbara S. Belmont, CAE, Executive Director, American School Food Service Association

Coaching

Sometimes, we all need a little nudge. Someone to ask provocative questions and frame things in a different way for us. Over the past few years, I've been asked to coach a number of people--both writers working on a project who needed help focusing and people going through a transition or seeking some kind of clarity and a way forward. If either describes you, let me know if you'd like information on engaging me as a coach. You can reach me at patti@pattidigh.com

Book Clubs - A book club moderator myself, I always try to connect with the authors we're reading, and so I'd love to participate in your book club if you'd like to include LIFE IS A VERB on your agenda! Perhaps I can join you in person, by phone, or on the web--let me know if that's of interest!
