Dr. Margarita Gurri, CSP, is a terrific speaker on ethics!…

Dr. Margarita Gurri, Certified Speaking Professional, is a terrific speaker on ethics! I had the pleasure of attending her ethics presentation at the 2016 annual meeting of the National Speakers Association, and I was very impressed by the way she presented the material.

It’s easy for ethics speakers to fall into the trap of appearing self-righteous. Dr. Gurri never once came across this way. Instead, she told moving stories about how she came to be an ethics presenter, and she used creative exercises to engage the audience. There is no more intimidating group for a speaker to address than one’s fellow speakers, but Dr. Gurri handled this difficult situation beautifully.

May your own group be fortunate to have her present a talk on ethics!
