Unlike most people, I love to speak. I don’t just mean I love to talk. I mean I love giving public presentations. That might sound weird to you, especially if you’re part of the majority of Americans who fear public speaking more than death, but it’s one of my favorite things to do.
Over the last few years, I’ve spoken across the country, everywhere from large conferences to small groups, parish retreats to diocesan celebrations. I’ve traveled to several states and met many, many incredible people.
I’m always looking for new opportunities and that’s the reason for this post. Right now, I’m booked up through October 2013, but if you’re hosting an event anytime in late-2013 or anytime 2014, I’d love to be considered. Here are some steps to get the ball rolling:
My two most popular topics are the New Evangelization and the new media. However, I speak often on other topics like apologetics, Catholic social teaching, and Catholic spirituality. You’ll find a list of the most requested talks on my Speaking page. For any talk, my goal is to customize the presentation to meet the group’s needs. I do whatever it takes to knock the ball out of the park and deliver the message you want for your event.
Finally, for an idea of what to expect, read what others have said about my speaking in the past (more recommendations here):
Bishop of the Diocese of Providence
“We were delighted to have Brandon Vogt in the Diocese of Providence to speak to our priests about the effective use of modern media. His presentation was extremely interesting and informative to priests of various ages. The fact that he placed his presentation in the context of the New Evangelization was especially helpful. Brandon’s expertise in the area of contemporary communications and especially the productive use of social media is a real blessing for the Church.”
Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis
“Brandon Vogt is at the cutting edge of using the Internet and social media as a tool for evangelization. His blog is one that I subscribe to as a useful place to find good information on how to use these new tools in order to spread the Good News.”
“Brandon Vogt has emerged as an important voice in the New Evangelization. He brings his energy, enthusiasm, and prodigious intellectual gifts to the Catholic conversation and demonstrates how social media can be used effectively to advance the mission of the Gospel and extend to the culture the invitation to know Christ in his Church.”
Again, I’d love to speak at your next event. Please email me at [email protected] and we’ll go from there. Thanks!
