What is the range of sessions
Dr. Bacon provides?
The presentation titles may be accessed on the Home page in the
lower right section under “Presentation Titles” or
in the Services Offered section by clicking first on Keynote Addresses
and Seminars and then on the tab at the bottom of the page directing
you to “For more detailed descriptions…”. These
describe a variety of sessions that have been well received in
the past although presentations are tailored to the specific needs
of the group after discussion with the professional development
much time in advance is required to book Dr. Bacon for an engagement?
Of course it is preferable to book as far in advance as possible
but some engagements may be secured on relatively short notice
if the date(s) desired are available on her calendar. Some times
of the year are particularly busy, particularly in August and
early September when the calendar gets booked for opening-of-school
convocations. Contact us by telephone or by completing the form
in the Contact Us section to determine availability of the dates
we get a chance to preview one of Dr. Bacon’s presentations?
Please contact us by e-mail to determine if there will be a presentation
in your area and/or at a date that is convenient for you.
much would this cost us?
Fees include costs for the honorarium, travel expenses and duplication
of handouts for participants. More detailed information is provided
on the site in Contact Us/Booking Information. Briefly, fees vary
based on the nature of the group, the amount of preparation and
travel required and the season in which the presentation is desired.
We try to accommodate the client’s budget when we can so
feel free to call to discuss your individual needs and determine
if we can arrive at a mutually acceptable amount.
much time is involved in a consultant day?
The same daily rate applies if Dr. Bacon provides a one-hour keynote
address or a 5 -6 hour seminar. In most instances, ½ day
is recommended if the client can use the time in a meaningful
way as long the consultant can make reasonable travel arrangements
before the end of the day. Dr. Bacon prefers small group sessions
“A Conversation with the Presenter” following a keynote
address to give participants who desire this an opportunity to
raise their own issues regarding the topics covered.
have Dr. Bacon’s sessions been received?
It is rare in the large group keynote addresses that Dr. Bacon
does not get a standing ovation and evaluations have been uniformly
positive. Her presentations tend to be inspirational, humorous
and uplifting but also quite challenging. Her style is a down-to-earth
one that resonates with educators given her extensive experience
in education at all levels as well as the wealth of experience
she has had dealing with diverse populations. Given that her major
focus is on fostering more positive beliefs, attitudes and expectations
for the students we serve, her message can make some uncomfortable
about some of their past behaviors but audiences always leave
inspired to change their dysfunctional practices rather than resentful
of the challenge to the status quo.
