What Is A Keynote? 

A keynote or presentation generally consist of a 45-minute presentation. Depending on your vision, the event can include a panel discussion and a book signing. The presentation may include audience interaction, props, humor, visual experience or a make-and-take activity.

Leading Up To Your Event 

The only way to create an memorable event is to work closely to understand your vision. 

  • An initial get-to-know each other phone call.
  • An image of Little Changes, Kristi’s head shot and a bio to help promote your event.
  • A few weeks before your event, Kristi will touch base, review and share a prepared introduction.
  • Depending on the event, we are happy to promote through several media channels. 
  • It is important to genuinely connect with audience members. Make time for audience members to meet Kristi  prior to and after the presentation.
  • As often as possible, Kristi will bring an assistant to focus on book sales so she can focus on your guests.

“Ms. Marsh is that rare presenter who is able to deliver serious information with panache and energy. She is articulate, funny, touching, and down-to-earth a combination that ensures her audience is fully engaged in all that she has to say. Her enthusiasm for her subject is contagious and lends itself to vigorous feedback and audience participation. The Ames Free Library hosted approximately 200 adult events in the last calendar year. The events contributed to the library’s winning of a finalist position in the competitive Best Small Library in America 2011 award.  I would personally place Kristi Marsh in the top 15 presenters for a year that witnessed a highly noteworthy set of speakers.”
