Speaking Overview

It’s a thrill for me to be able to deliver my ideas to other people in a public forum. I love to meet new people, communicate with them, and learn from them. Public speech is a way to achieve all these purposes simultaneously.

My speaking career began when I was young – because of my unique background and experiences, I was invited to all sorts of venues, including schools, rotary clubs, libraries, and chambers of commerce, to share my story. And then I was invited to write my life story into a book, and had the chance to speak in China and Taiwan as part of my book tour. It’s a singularly exciting experience to convey my ideas to many people at once and I greatly enjoy it.

Now, many speeches afterward, I have refined my speaking themes and included some of them below. These topics run the gamut from my personal growth and education to the philosophies I hold on how learning should be revolutionized, and my humble version on how this world can bettered.

I look forward to interacting your group.
