During my presentation, you will laugh, learn and laugh. The audience is part of my presentation questions are asked and the answers are interesting to everyone. You will not only learn a lot about yourself but also about the person or persons sitting next to you. No one is bored or falls to sleep. Some of the questions are light hearted and some are thought provoking. Everyone walks away with a new opinion about himself or herself. You also discovered you are not alone in your thoughts and behavior. You are constantly laughing and learning about yourself. Everyone leaves with a smile because of having a good laugh about one or several of the questions. It is a good time for all. The program can be tailored to specific questions you would like to ask or have answered by your staff. Once again, your group will laugh, learn and laugh.
Arlene brought us out our comfort zone and we really appreciated her doing that.
The information was very informative and we were constantly laughing. I love her theme laugh, learn and laugh.
She made me realize I could use another way to do my work at the office so it would be less stressful.
I enjoyed some of the information pertaining to what I should do before I get out of bed; I used to watch my Dad do that and never understood why until today. Great session.
Ms. Dyer came to Juvenile Hall to help those who were being released find employment in a career we were good at she explained how there is a good side to every bad side. I stole cars she said, “I could work for an auto recovery service.” She really cared about us.
I thought I could read my paper but once Arlene started with the first question, I had to put my paper down. The whole group was laughing.
Simple questions took some of us a long time to answer. I really enjoyed the different stories she told. The punch lines were great.
I tried to write down all the short stories Arlene told so I could share them with my friends on the internet.
I enjoyed her presentation she was well prepared.
Arlene made me think about my health and the different things I was doing wrong.
She is a master at story telling, I never would have guessed the punch line.
Ms. Dyer spoke to our high school class and everyone gave her respect. She made us think about how we could do better in school and about our future.

Women in Herstory: The Gals Behind the Gents
Exercise & Its Avoidance
Luxury: Necessity’s Favorite Aunt
It’s My Moodswing & I’ll Rage if I Want To!
Don’t Make Me Smack You With My Steel Magnolia!
Humorist Bunkie Lynn, author of The Big Girls’ Guide to Life, a 2004 ForeWord Book of the Year Finalist, navigates the trials faced by women in our body-obsessed world, noting that “society’s ideal female represents a genetic mutation between a pretzel stick and a silicone breast implant.” A popular Keynote for women’s events and writers’ conferences, Bunkie is a columnist for the Women’s National Book Association; www.Igigi.com, a plus-sized women’s clothing retailer; and a True Defender of EveryWoman in her blog at http://bunkielynn.blogspot.com. Her “Real 4 Food Groups” are Chocolate, Garlic, Red Wine & Dessert.
A native of Tucson, Bunkie resides near Nashville, Tennessee. She earned a degree in Radio-TV-Film from the University of Texas at Austin, cut her teeth on Austin City Limits, worked for two decades in advertising, film/video production and international marketing, and speaks four languages. She is married, has a son, and owns two very rambunctious dogs.
Bunkie’s next novel, Moodswing Manifesto, is a ‘menopausal romp’ that will make middle-aged women everywhere toss their control top pantyhose. Visit Bunkie’s web site, www.bunkielynn.com, for upcoming appearance details.
Because Bunkie knows that the Real 4 Main Food Groups are Chocolate, Garlic, Red Wine & Dessert, and she isn’t above bribing an audience with Goo Goo Clusters for laughs. (Nashville’s Standard Candy, maker of world-famous Goo Goo Clusters, provides samples!).
Bunkie’s an animated, hilarious speaker who draws sell-out crowds, gets rave reviews, and isn’t afraid to show her large granny underpants to obtain publicity for your event. Bunkie’s broadcasting savvy makes her a smooth talker, on-air and onstage; she understands the value of pre-event marketing and schmoozing, appearances the day before an event to punch up civic PR, and the need for cocktails and photo-ops with event sponsors. Let’s face it, the gal is easy (to work with!).
Bunkie always provides custom material, tailoring comments to your specific cause, to deeply connect with the audience for big laughs, big checks, and great memories. Bunkie and her team market your event on her website and blog with links and photos. She gets great coverage from producers and editors, and works hard to intrigue and engage your local media. Bunkie insists on written post-event feedback from clients, even though she might beat you with her purse if you don’t sing her praises. When Bunkie Lynn is your keynote, EveryWoman leaves moved, motivated, and has probably peed her pants, so order those plastic chair covers now.
Bunkie tells women of all sizes what it takes to release their inner spirit, accomplish their most difficult goals, and sail to their personal star. Women need motivation, but what every woman craves most is a good five-minute belly laugh that rivals sex as a stress-buster. Bunkie Lynn delivers the belly, plus the belly laughs, and your audience will never stop thanking you for the experience!

Stay Focused—Taking Care of Yourself and Your Career in Three Easy Steps
If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother: Finding Your Hidden Path from Mom’s Example
Carol D. O’Dell’s passion is to tell stories, and through stories to teach, offer insights, comfort and guide. She is a national speaker, teacher and author, and her gripping memoir MOTHERING MOTHER is for anyone who finds themselves “in the middle” of caring for loved ones while sustaining their own sense of self. MOTHERING MOTHER gets to the heart of the “sandwich” generation and overflows with humor, grace and much needed honesty. Her stories have been described as “full of magic and wonder” and moments of offered grace.”
Carol has been interviewed on numerous television and radio programs including PBS/WEDU special on the “Up Close with Cathy Unruh Show” which featured her book, MOTHERING MOTHER and focused on the current issues baby boomers face. She has been featured on WJXT, WSDK, WJCT, KSDK Internet Radio Voices, Authors on the Radio and as a guest speaker on bestselling author, Jacqueline Marcell’s radio program, Coping with Caregiving, aired worldwide. Carol’s fiction and nonfiction work has appeared in numerous publications including Voices of Alzheimer’s, Atlanta Magazine, Southern Revival, Mature Matters and AIM, America’s Interracial Magazine. She is the health editor for Hot Psychology Magazine and a graduate of Jacksonville University.
Carol D. O’Dell is a requested speaker at Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, caregiving, hospice, family dynamic, writing and women’s conferences around the country. Her southern flare and gift of surprising humor and poignant drama is refreshing. Audience members find Carol to be a passionate and captivating speaker with a compelling message.
I was adopted at age four to Southern, fundamentalist parents in their mid-fifties—what more could a writer want?
Carol D. O’Dell has a passion–to communicate. There’s nothing more fulfilling to Carol than to capture a room full of people—and for them to go on a journey with her and forget to breathe. She loves to write, speak and teach, and that passion began in her childhood as the daughter of a southern woman preacher. Carol grew up under a grand piano on stage at a prominent Atlanta church. She watched her mother command a room and bring people to the point of laughter, praise and tears. And from that day, she knew what she longed to do.
Carol is a relaxed, personal style speaker who talks to each person in the room as if they’re her dear, dear friend. She takes you by surprise with her candor and striking humor, and yet she has the ability to hold your hand and take you to the scary places you don’t want to go alone. Her enthusiasm is contagious. People line up after her presentations—to connect, hug, and be listened to. Carol knows that listening and spending time with those have come to her hear her is as important as standing “on stage.”
Whether Carol is addressing a medical conference, on a television or radio interview, or an intimate support group, her warmth and professionalism shines through. Her motto is, “When I finish speaking or teaching, you should feel like the most important person in the world.”
[Mothering Mother] A beautiful rendering of a difficult but all-too-common situation, told with plenty of humor…and much love.
-MF Wilkens, Booklist Review
Carol’s prose is both stimulating and soothing, with humor and wit that adds a refreshing breeze to a subject often cloaked in whispers. A welcome new voice to the field of caregiving!
-Jacqueline Marcell, author of Elder Rage
Ms. O’Dell captivated her audience and speaks with the love, passion and wisdom. Carol is a competent and personable speaker with a wealth of knowledge.
-Stephania Sykes-Burns, Program Coordinator, Alzheimer’s Association
Carol received rave reviews. Attendees commented on her practical advice, valuable information, her professionalism, and her friendly, but lively presentation style. She is knowledgeable, organized and prepared, warm and professional.
-Kathleen Clower, Director, Instructional Media, Florida Community College at Jacksonville
Her story [Mothering Mother] of that time is honest, poignant, even heart wrenching, and often, unexpectedly comic. To say that we were impressed with both her fortitude and her ability to write her story in real time is an understatement.
-Rosemary Daniell, Author, Speaker, Writing Coach
Mothering Mother documents the daily love, doubts, ambivalence, guilt, grief, and small triumphs that accompany caregiving. Those of us in the Baby-boomer generation will resonate with the emotional roller coaster that many of us have or are currently experiencing, or fear having to face with our own aging parents.
-Barry K. Baines, MD. Medical Director, Hospice Director and Author of Ethical Wills
Carol O’Dell is a wonderful storyteller, both in her written work and in engaging personal presentations. As a professional geriatric care manager, educator, and writer, I high recommend her.
-Shannon Martin, MSW, Director of Community Relations, Aging Wisely
Carol’s workshop was one of the best I have ever attended, anywhere, and that includes far more costly conferences and even academic venues. Carol obviously knows exactly what she is doing and is generous in sharing.
-Gerri Teran, President of Georgia Writers

Stress Away! A New Approach to Managing Stress
The Power of Words! Communicating Effectively
LifeTools: Coping Skills that Help Us Live Well
The Wellness Tool: A Simple Approach to Living Well
Creating Positive Changes in Your Life!
I have spent the last 25 year educating people about health and fitness. Initially as an exercise specialist in a hospital based wellness program and then transitioning in to the health care field. My passion is in giving people the tools needed to manage life rather than life managing them. I grew up grappling for ways to cope with the challenges of my own childhood, losing a father as a teenager and having a mother whose health was very bad. By the time I was 25, I’d lost both of my parent. Along the way, I I have been determined not to end up following my parents path. Health and Wellness has become my area of life focus. I take great joy in having a positive impact on people‘s lives.
My education background includes a bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University in the field of Leisure Studies and a Masters in Social Work from Rutgers University. I am currently licensed as a clinical social worker in New Jersey where I reside. I am the author of Creating Compliance and Life Tools Made Simple. My area of expertise is in health and wellness. I have presented my work at conferences throughout the Mid-east.
My approach is simple! Have people leave at the end of a presentation with something they can take and use to make a positive impact in their lives. Energy and passion are a big part of the experience. I involve people in my presentations so that it is an interactive experience rather than a one way process. I love to incorporate door prizes, just to surprise people! My presentation style is one that can hold peoples attention. I love to make a difference in people’s lives and this carries over to my presentations.
“Excellent speaker & motivator. Kept my attention 100% of the entire session. Important that Carol used humor as part of the group process & allowed audience participation (very enjoyable) throughout the session.”
“Excellent presentation style. Great energy, very knowledgeable. Should be considered for Keynote or End Note.”
“Really interesting, held my attention. Invite Carol to speak again!”

To keep your business growing, you need to nourish the roots.
What has become of our lives? In America, we have become mere zombies in a factory, punching the clock, mismanaging our time and our employees, losing the vitality and creativity that keeps business evolving and expanding.

Dr. Niama L. J. Williams believes that dreams deserved to be lived, and thus has committed herself and her company to liberating those who dream of a different life each day but cannot seem to actively step into that life. After 17+ years as a part-time professor of literature and composition, Dr. Ni experienced homelessness and that revolutionized her self-concept and commitment to others. Now Dr. Ni knows for sure that those who serve the indigent and the indigent themselves are some of the hardest working and most stressed people in our society. Her company, Blowing Up Barriers Enterprises, seeks to alleviate that stress by educating companies, non-profits, and social services agencies—employees and clients—about the acquisition of spiritual grit such that one is unafraid to reach for a life that one has imagined but feared to claim.
Dr. Niama L. Williams is the author of ten books, co-author of three. Each title describes her survival of trauma and celebrates those who have assisted her as she’s walked her path.
Dr. Ni also facilitates two workshop series, “Affirming the Fully Imagined Life” and “It’s Okay To Want: Eroticism and the Survival of Sexual Trauma.” Review her credentials, publications and workshop descriptions at her website: http://www.drniamawilliams.com ; listen to her audiobooks at iAmplify.com; or read the latest of her personal story on her blog at http://www.drniamawilliams.
Nineteen years of public speaking that began with little lunchtime gatherings in the university library at which I worked as a library assistant. The University Librarian attended and my department chair approved the room; my old high school speech and debate coach took a day off from School Board presidenting to hear my nascent prose and poetry.
I learned to welcome the silence following my words; my insecurity washed away by those who walked up afterwards, telling me that they had not clapped because they were still mulling over the startling things I had said.
People who grew up hating poetry love my lines; people who thought they were not supposed to engage with ideas find themselves discussing my metaphors and symbolism. I am the academic poet who reaches Willie Bobo on the street.
I bring to the speakers platform the understanding Sheniqua has of the world, and all that is arrayed against her. Yes, I have Ph.D. in hand, but I have used whatever resources at my disposal to GET that Ph.D.; thus I can touch the women who waste their afternoons in DPA offices across the country and around the world. I know how they are treated and I know how they chafe at that treatment.
I am also a poet and academic in love with the word. Humble and easily smitten, I wrap my arms around T. S. Eliot and Toni Cade Bambara with equivalent glee; I joke about Eliot’s relentlessly paralyzed super-intellectual as easily as I recognize the boy men begging for money from their women in the grocery store that Bambara describes in THE SALT EATERS.
My mission one to share that joy in the word, to reveal the freedom within expressing your own brilliance, the liberation available via pen, paper, and a quiet afternoon.
My speaking engagements go back to 1989, and thus I will not list them here. Ms. Maleka Fruean (firstname.lastname@example.org), formerly of Big Blue Marble Bookstore and Mr. Dan Gasiewski (email@example.com) of First Person Arts can attest to the versatility, wit and agile mind at work when I stand in front of an audience.
Mr. Gregory Frost (firstname.lastname@example.org), prize-winning science fiction author, can discuss my instructive abilities and the many ways in which I can entice comments from the most resistant and terrified undergraduate audiences. Mr. Aaron Lazar can attest to the fairness and agility of my many Amazon book reviews.
