ari speaking

As a motivational speaker with a unique range of personal experiences, my goal is to immediately connect with my audience using humor and story, while blending substantive content that is thought-provoking and inspiring. Drawing from empirical research, literature, ancient wisdom and personal life experience, my presentations, are engaging, relevant and humorous and aim to touch and uplift everyone. Below, you can find a list of topics that I present for corporate or religious organizations, as I carefully tailor every presentation for each audience I address.

The general themes I cover include: Maximizing life, human capital, relationships and time. I focus on helping people create drama-free environments in their many relationships both at home and at the workplace to ensure higher levels of satisfaction with minimum friction.  My messages include seeking deeper goals, meaning and fulfillment from one's endeavors and learning to take pleasure in self-Improvement and inspiration as intrinsic motivators for achieving one's immediate and long-term goals.  These themes apply to the corporate, organizational and non-profit arenas, and of course, to those looking for presentations on Religion, community, Torah, marriage, parenting, social welfare or mental health.

If there is a topic you are interested in, but do not see listed below, please contact me and we can create a custom presentation, keynote or seminar, which will be sophisticated, while humorous, captivating and thought-provoking.
