Speaking Experience

A Glimpse of our Speaking Experiences

Nan and Gary enjoy presenting information and inspiration to groups. See their list of subjects ready to
present. They will also customize a program based on specific desires, if they are qualified to speak to the
subject matter. Nan and Gary speak using their own personal stories and sharing ideas about healing grief
based on what they have learned from others on a similar journey. When presenting together, they easily
compliment each other’s grief styles. They offer suggestions; not advice for the bereaved and caregivers.
They invite the audience to interact, when applicable, and are sensitivity to personal grief challenges. In
addition to invited private presentations, they host a wide variety of groups and community presentations
and are often invited back again. Here are a few of the organizations they have presented to:
