August 2008, Introducing Michael Hingson
Greetings from the San Francisco Bay Area!
I am writing to ask for your participation and support. As you may know, I have ended my official position as National Spokesperson for Guide Dogs for the Blind on June 30th to pursue my own speaking and consulting business. Toward that end, I am seeking new connections with people interested in finding a unique speaker with a powerful, transformational message for an upcoming organization or company event.
Since my guide dog “Roselle” and I escaped from Tower One of the World Trade Center on 9-11, I have traveled extensively, speaking on topics such as Trust and Teamwork, Safety Preparedness, Handling Change and Diversity. I have found that the audiences of events of all types, such as sales kickoffs, corporate retreats, non-profit fund raisers, graduations and school assemblies, respond to the powerful underlying message of empowerment and overcoming adversity.
You may learn more about my successful speaking experience by visiting www.michaelhingson.com and by reading my profile in LinkedIn.
Last month, I was featured in the first of a two part article about my WTC experiences in a widely circulated newsletter called the DAISY Planet. DAISY Planet promotes technological innovation, empowerment and awareness of accessibility issues. Regarding the July issue of the Planet:
“One of the major highlights in this issue is ‘Your Stories.’ Michael
Hingson’s story is to say the least, utterly amazing…”
The July DAISY Planet is now available at:
If you are planning meetings or events and are looking for an unforgettable, transformational message to motivate and inspire, I would like to explore the opportunity to work with you. Likewise, please pass my information on to anyone in your personal or professional network who may be interested in finding a keynote speaker.
Thanks in advance for your consideration and assistance. Should you have any questions or want to get in touch please contact me at (415) 827-4084 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care. I hope we can talk soon.
P.S. As I launch my new blog site and newsletter, building my online audience, I’ll be looking for positive synergies, interviewing guest speakers who valuable insights to share pertaining to accessibility and inclusion issues as well.
