Costs: $0 but time to prepare; my fees range from nothing to $3,000 day

plus expenses.

 

Status: Runs in spurts. In October I made four separate trips to various

parts of the States to run seminars, each of which venue will probably ask

me for more of my time next year. Some months there is nothing. This past

summer I loaded up 8 kids in a van (4 Americans, 4 Danes) and went to

Harlem and upstate New York to do workshops.

 

Current Challenges:

1. I have, for some time now, needed a lecture bureau or some other entity

to represent me. To get one to be interested in me, I need to make a video

of one of my presentations. Just need some time to get it together.

2. Video and satellite conferencing is the next wave (n.p.i.) to explore.

 

Pieces I Can Share with WAVE: Typically, my presentations are lively and

interactive. The downside of that is that they are always changing and are

not carved in stone, meaning that I don't have reams of materials I can

send out on each one. But I do have material on all of the above-listed

subjects and, given some time, can put together stuff to send out.

 

Any and all feedback is appreciated!
