Virtual Speakers of the Week
GDA is supporting our clients and contacts in navigating the virtual world of keynotes by sharing our favorite virtual speakers. Whether the speaker has been providing virtual presentations for decades (some have since the late 1990's!) or just recently transitioned their in-person presentation to a virtual version, we see these speakers providing our contacts valuable content that has been carefully developed with the client and audience in mind.
Memory Expert


Solidifying himself as one of the top memory experts in the world, Ron White has been wowing audiences worldwide for years. During his in-person presentations, he famously incorporates impressive feats such as being able to call out hundreds of attendee's names that he memorizes after only brief introductions and memorizing a 50-digit number, reciting it forwards and backwards during a collaborative activity with the audience. 


Ron carries the same powerful and fun messaging into his virtual presentations. He has been providing online classes since 1998 and has an impressive production team to assist with continuing to provide an engaging and valuable experience for audiences. Is there something you want your audience to remember about your company or organization? As a lasting takeaway, Ron will have the audience learn how to memorize things but also to remember what they learn a half a year later.

Watch Ron's video to see for yourself the quality and passion that Ron brings to every virtual event.

New York Times Best-Selling Author


Leslie Morgan Steiner is the author of four nonfiction books including the New York Times bestselling memoir Crazy Love. She is also an impactful speaker on the subjects of female leadership and ending family violence. Her 2012 TEDTalk about domestic violence and her 2014 TEDTalk exploring the ethics of global surrogacy have been viewed by more than six million people worldwide.

The first stage of abusive love is isolation and since COVID-19 has stay-at-home orders impacting nearly the entire nation, let alone the world, domestic emergency calls have increased dramatically resulting in the United Nations recently calling for a global domestic violence "ceasefire".

In her virtual keynote, Domestic Violence in the Time of Coronavirus, Leslie shares proven strategies, compassion and encouragement to ensure abuse victims, and the advocates and donors helping them, survive quarantines' exacerbation of abuse trauma.

Watch Leslie's Washington Post video discussing how for domestic violence victims, pandemic lockdown is a time to plan the escape.
