I have extensive teaching and speaking experience and am happy to travel. In the last year or so I have taught workshops in the USA, Canada, UK, New Zealand, Perth, Canberra and Sydney and had several speaking engagements.  If you are interested in hosting a workshop, please contact me.  A booklet of course outlines in electronic form is available on request.
