Christine shares her personal experiences and viewpoints through exercises and storytelling, which provide practical tips, laughter, and perhaps a few misty eyes along the way.Christine reminds us that anyone can communicate with another person if it comes from the heart. She shows you how to cut through the small talk and get right to the big talk, a much more interesting and rewarding way to share life’s experiences.In her work at home and travels abroad, Christine has connected with hundreds of memorable “characters”, and she brings those stories to life for her audiences.

Get to know German “Silver Hans”, who spins tales of his World War II exploits. Learn the wisdom of Kake, the Balinese grandfather clad only in a loincloth, while speaking no English, could communicate powerfully through his bright eyes and expressive hands.Closer to home, Christine’s experience as a volunteer bodyguard for performer Tom Jones provides a hilarious example of effective verbal and nonverbal (body) language.Christine is a member of the National Speakers Association and past president of its Ohio chapter, NSA Ohio.
