Buried under mountains of sugar

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

The onslaught of sugar in the American diet and its effect on our ability to sense sweetness — and other outcomes — is the subject of this speech I gave to my Toastmasters club last week. The assignment was to present a researched and sourced contention.

Please love and share!


Postcards from rehab, Part II

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

For my October installment at my Toastmasters club, I decided to contrast my "other" rehab experience with what I shared in September. In the first one, treatment came on a 92-acre wooded campus with staff our the wazoo. About 10 years later, the venue was a rented chalet in southern Indiana and the staff was Phil and Mary. Very different, but both were vital to my recovery.


From the podium, different ways to look at food addiction

I've begun building a section of speeches I've given to my Toastmasters club on this blog, because ... well, I should be honest, it's at least partly because I'm a showoff. (Too much of one? You decide.)

But also, I am a professional speaker, and I want to highlight both my ideas and my speaking style for buyers and event planners who can't help but benefit from hiring me.

My speech on food addiction

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

I gave this speech about food addiction last week at my Toastmasters club in Lexington, Mass.

The audio isn't the best, but it IS there. Also, if I were editing, I'd have eliminated the first two minutes or so, and if you want, you could skip ahead to that point. Prior to that, the speaker is my friend, author and public speaker Roberta K. Taylor.
