Interesting, enlightening, and fun! These are the three things that I want people to say about my presentations. I always keep this in mind for the workshops and seminars that I develop and present –even for serious subjects. I want to connect with my audience on a personal level, to bring something new or thought-provoking to their attention, to share ideas and information, and to make their time with me meaningful!

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. We have left behind our family obligations, stopped taking care of ourselves, and in many cases, forgotten how to live. People literally work themselves to death to stay ahead of the competition, provide for their families and keep from being laid off.

We are stressed out beyond belief. In order for our business to grow, as well as remain stable, we need to take care of ourselves and our staff at the very core. Dr. Kathleen Hall, national stress expert, inspires you and your employees to do just that – lead a healthier life and manage stress. Your employees are your business after all, and without them your business wouldn’t survive. Give them a day with Dr. Hall and help your business bloom.

Give your employees some sunshine.
Dr. Hall is not just a speaker. She’s been there – stressed out, overbooked, overworked and overwhelmed. And that’s why she is so impassioned to help others. Her life is what makes her such a down-to-earth, authentic person. She energizes her audience and inspires them. Take a look at the included DVD to see for yourself. She breaks everything down to a simple level through her interesting courses. And in the process, she touches her audience’s lives and leaves them with something that no company picnic can do – a sense of peace.

Have we planted a seed yet?
We hope so. You owe it to you and your company to invest in a keynote, seminar or customized event with Dr. Kathleen Hall. For more information, visit

Rave Reviews

“I’ve been using the Zellies system since we talked, and I’m utterly convinced – somewhat to my surprise, since at first glance all those bottles seemed like more attention to my teeth than I wanted to give. My mouth has never felt so clean, and my teeth are loving every moment.”
– Dr. Pam Klainer

“Thank you so much for sending me the package I have been doing everything you told me to do and eating lots of Xylitol!! I don’t chew gum anymore and have replaced it with those candies you sent me! I love them and everyone I offer them to loves them. Thank you so much again. My teeth are happy and feel clean all the time. Also, the sensitivity that I had been experiencing before is practically gone- I no longer cringe when eating ice cream. I hope that you receive my letter soon, and look forward to talking to you again.”
