My speaking style is energetic, full of examples and anecdotes from a rich and varied career, irreverent, and no-holds-barred. Presentations embrace diversity and multiculturalism and can include stories of my experience as a female executive in Latin America and as an expatriate. I customize every presentation to address the audience at hand and can present in English or Spanish.
