Barry’s Speaking Topics

Speaking Topics

It is always a pleasure to speak to audiences who are interested in the same subject as I am.  My interest areas include:  law and religion; religious freedom; politics and religion; charity law; Christian organizations and their relations with the public, media, and other opinion makers; peace and reconciliation.  My approach is to convey content through the medium of stories.  I am a believer in stories.  Stories of triumph and tragedy are the foundations of our collective wisdom of what works and doesn’t work in our quest for meaning.  I seek to inspire and encourage audiences to recognize that they are a part of the human story and, as a result, they have a role in making the world a better place.   Feel free to contact me about a topic you would like me to speak on and let’s see if our mutual stories may connect.  Some ideas to consider:
