Speaking engagements (and virtual talks!)

[My speaking schedule | Bring me to speak | Videos of me speaking]

Have you ever wished I would come to where you are and say a bunch of words in rapid succession? Wish no more! That is a thing I do! And with any luck, I’ll make you laugh while I do it.

[Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am currently doing virtual talks (webinars, Zoom calls, etc.) until it is safe to resume in-person talks. You can still use this form to book me for a virtual event.]

Over the last two decades, I’ve been invited to speak all across the United States as well as in Canada, the UK, the Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand. I always strive for two things: to make sure people have fun while I’m speaking, and to make sure they leave with real, practical new information and/or understanding.

I speak frequently to both secular and faith-based audiences. Most recently, I have been speaking on cultural polarization and how to talk to people you disagree with about divisive issues, building on themes from my book Talking Across the Divide.

I am also continuing to do talks on Christianity and LGBTQ issues, building on the themes from my first book, Torn.

So if your university, church, conference, book club, bowling league, bald-guy fan club, or whatever would like a speaker for your event, just fill out the form below and let’s make it happen.
