Invite Brian to Speak

Thanks for your interest in having Brian speak to your group. Brian loves to speak about his books and related subjects, and is honored by your interest. His 2014 schedule is full, and 2015 is almost full.

Brian will be taking his first-ever travel and speaking sabbatical around the time of his 60th birthday, so we won't be accepting any invitations from 10 November 2015 through 10 September 2016. We are taking invitations for September 2016 - June 2017 now, and we plan to open booking for later in 2017 on October 1, 2015.

1. In-Person Appearances
Preference will be given to pastor/clergy, college/young adult groups, and interfaith groups. His publishers are happier if the groups are larger. Brian tries to schedule one or two international trips per year.

2. Virtual Appearances
Instead of having Brian travel to speak with your group, you can have him address your group via interactive video conferencing technology. By using Skype or another free or inexpensive online service, Brian can deliver a lecture with visuals, and he can take questions and respond to comments as well. This arrangement saves money (air travel, hotels, etc.), reduces environmental impact, and, when combined with small group interaction (for which we offer support and resources), can provide a very effective educational experience. Equipment needed: high speed internet, computer with video capabilities, video projector with sound.

You can inquire about inviting Brian to speak to your group by contacting Laci Scott. When you contact Laci, please include the following:

3. Are you interested in an in-person or video-conference option?

4. What topic(s) would you like him to address? (Please see the link below.)
