MD Harris Institute Public Speaking and Living History

Public Speaking Engagements

Events are important in the lives of individuals and organizations, and leaders usually have specific goals for their event. Some may wish to develop their subordinates, others to inform outside stakeholders, and still others to encourage their teams to greater accomplishment. Sometimes the main focus of an event is to heal divisions in the group. Regardless of the situation, the task of the event speaker is to discover what the event organizer wants to accomplish and then help him or her do it.

Over the years, the founder and CEO of the MD Harris Institute, Colonel (ret) Dr. Rev. Mark Harris, has received many requests to help churches, businesses, men’s groups, and other organizations accomplish their goals. Dr. Harris can address your business meeting, church or other organizational event on medical, military, or religion related topics. Everything will be tailored to meet your exact needs.
