Why You Need to Hire Me to Speak During COVID-19
COVID-19 has presented many challenges for individuals, families, health care workers, businesses large and small, schools, community groups, churches, and more. We have all been affected. My message has always been that the techniques I teach and topics I discuss are what we can use on our worst days. That is when we need these techniques the most, when we are not our usual selves, and lacking in energy and motivation. For many, that time is now. When I began speaking about Gratitude years ago, my signature quote was "Gratitude is most powerful on our worst days."
My personal and professional experiences have led me to this moment today when my work is most relevant and powerful - giving inspirational talks and teaching specific methods related to cultivating gratitude, joy, meaning, love, resilience, and fulfillment in our lives. This is what we need in our lives to live fully. This is what we need in our lives now, more than ever.
I am being hired by universities, women's groups, schools, financial institutions, and more to continue to deliver these talks and workshops on-line.
Here are some unsolicited email responses that I received within five minutes after delivering a talk on methods of practicing gratitude to a group of 150 university Vice Presidents and faculty members:
"I feel better already."
"You were exceptional. I have already shared your tips with two people in five minutes. Extremely relatable and useful."
"Thank you, Peggy. Your presentation was wonderful in so many ways."
"Your talk was incredibly moving. I'm so glad you were able to join us today."
