Each talk is customized to your audience. Fees vary, and at times I donate the fee to a favorite cause.

Some popular topics I address for job seekers, career changers, and even those who are not thinking about careers:

  • The Five Biggest Mistakes on Resumes, and How to Avoid Them – There’s lots of advice out there but is it from The Resume Queen?!

  • Obstacles: Sometimes the Best Way Around is Through – Funny, stirring, inspiring, a story about cancer diagnosis and subsequent divorce. It all started with the lightning...
