Whenever asked to recommend or hire a professional presenter on topics of leadership, public health issues, diversity or cultural competency there is no hesitancy on my part to recommend Valda Ford. She is an enthusiastic and most entertaining presenter. Valda is famous for the flexibility of her delivery, that even if you’ve heard her speak on the topic, no two presentations are ever the same. No matter the topic, Valda commands her audience’s attention as members don’t want to miss a word of what she shares. Valda’s speaking style keeps her audience engaged. She moves effortlessly from serious to humorous and intersperses each presentation with her rich collection of stories. Her ability to paint vivid pictures for the mind is extraordinary and contributes to audience members becoming a part of the presentation.
