The last time Monique Doyle Spencer gave a talk at a corporate retreat, the CEO reported that it was the single most motivational event in all of his years with the company. She has donated her time for a session for your company or civic organization to my online auction to benefit Bowdoin Street Health Center.
Here's some background:
Spencer believes in humor as a powerful force in restoring the human spirit under any conditions. She is a three-time cancer survivor who has used laughter to reach wide audiences, to teach people how to survive and even thrive under challenges. Whether the audience has been women in prison, business groups, firefighters, cancer patients or grieving spouses, Spencer’s unique approach has inspired countless people to find their personal courage and restore joy in their lives.
Spencer is a contributing columnist to the Boston Globe. Her Globe columns also appear on NYTimes.com and in the International Herald Tribune. She is author of The Courage Muscle: A Chicken’s Guide to Living With Breast Cancer; and How Can I Help? Everyday Ways to Help Your Loved Ones Live with Cancer. Her third book, The Real Life Body Book, will be available in March, 2010.
