L. Reed Polk is a dynamic
keynote speaker, consultant, meeting moderator... and intermingled
with it all...a humorist as well! His compassion, understanding
and sparkling sense of humor are the basis for customized engagements
designed to create a positive influence on all who participate.
Southern born and southern bred, Reed can delight listeners from
California to the Carolinas with his distinctive one liners, affectionately
dubbed, "Folk's Pearls".
After facing a major personal crisis, Reed totally
changed the direction of his personal and professional life. With
an open and loving style, he candidly shares his experiences and
addresses life's purpose and perhaps the need for redefining it.
Never leaving out, of course, what it takes to have the courage
to act when a crossroad has been reached.
Throughout his adult life, Reed has had a platform
for speaking...his presence, coupled with a wealth of experience,
provides captivating, provocative, and valuable programs. His in-depth
knowledge of "values conflict" were enhanced while connected
with a helicopter base during the Vietnam War. Reed uses his maturity,
style, and grace to bring substance, peace, and at least "one
good laugh" to every meeting he attends!
Reed is a professional speaker and member of the
National Speakers Association. In addition, for over a decade, he
has worked within a university medical center where he assists the
Chancellor, administrators, staff, and patients with the difficult
decisions surrounding health care.
