Presentations & Publications

Over the past decade, Brooke Bowen has been a go-to presenter and public speaker for her clients and for various professional organizations.  Brooke has presented to rooms of thousands of people and small groups of less than ten.  She provides targeted trainings and engagements based on what her client -- and the particular audience of her client -- needs in the moment.  Brooke has worked with Board members and administrators and with first responders, students, and first line employees of her clients.  Brooke has a passion for training and public speaking because she truly believes that most people want to do the right thing -- so long as they are properly trained on what the right thing is.

Trainings and Public Speaking Through the Years

Listed below are representative matters demonstrating Brooke's range of trainings and public speaking engagements over the years. The list provides a sampling of Brooke's experience but is not comprehensive. If you are interested in having Brooke conduct a training or speak at an event (whether represented on this list or not), please give her a call.  If she isn't able to provide the training then she's happy to connect you with someone who can.
