Further description for meeting planners and decision makers:

When associated with this speech ( my trademark speech since 1987) my audience affectionately knows me as "The Ol' BSer." Belief Systems is an active, fun-filled speech and is a perfect way to interject smiles and enthusiasm into any group.

Belief Systems is an enjoyable, humorous and engaging sequence of ideas, challenges and exercises, all dealing with positive human relationships. I guide the audience into thinking positively about whatever challenge or activity is before them. Partnership exercises identify individual beliefs, increase positive self-image, instill respect for the views of others and generate a willingness to be open-minded.

The term BS is used in many forms (all very positive and acceptable) to illustrate that we share our Belief Systems every time we interact with another person. Everyone in attendance is given the title of Official BSer (Belief Spreader)! Belief Systems uses humor, storytelling, visuals, simple physical and mental activities. I lead the audience on a journey of improving interpersonal communications with others.

Through personal discovery, this major message evolves: Every individual has value and ideas worth sharing. Specific ideas presented help participants

  • 1) in thanking the special people in their lives who have significantly contributed to them.
  • 2) to encourage others to achieve more.
  • 3) make a difference for themselves by following through with their own good intentions.
