About Breeda Miller

 

Breeda listens to a caregiver's concerns.

Sometimes just listening is the biggest help of all.

Do you need a speaker who can engage, educate and entertain your participants?  Are you looking for a way to tie it all together?

Someone who can set the tone, introduce your leadership, keep things moving and tie it all up at the end and send your guests off with the message you intended?

I can help.  It's challenging to create, plan and manage an event.  I have been an event planner and I have the scars to prove it.  I left my PDJ (pesky day job) to help others and I am ready to help you.

Whether you need a keynote speaker, an interactive breakout or workshop, an event host or a Creative Summary Closing Keynote speaker, I am at your service.
