Looking for a Speaker for Your Event?
Over the past month, I’ve traveled around the U.S. to six different events as the keynote speaker. My talk, like the book that inspired it, is called “The Art of Explanation
My goal with every event is for attendees to leave with concrete ideas and strategies for becoming a better explainer, regardless of profession.
Christy Maeker, who attended one of my recent talks, posted this on Twitter
"Thanks, @leelefever, for the best and most useful presentation I've ever been to. The Art of Explanation. A-ha moments everywhere! Excellent."

And of course, our furry friends, just for you...
Maybe is the first dog we’ve had who requires consistent grooming. Over time her hair just grows and grows and we’re now doing the grooming ourselves, albeit poorly.
The longer Maybe’s hair gets, the more wild and untamed she looks. When we cut it, we tell her that she's still welcome in the pack. That’s about the best a dog can hope for. I’m sure you can see the difference below.
That's it for now! Cheers!
