​​​​​​​​Research has shown that people are more afraid of public speaking than they are of dying. Which basically means that at a funeral, people would rather be in the coffin than give the eulogy!  I, on the other hand, welcome the opportunity to speak to you on anything from Starting a Business to Perfecting Your Pitch.

I'd like to inspire you to Accept Your Worth!

I am available to speak at award ceremonies, churches, community functions, corporate events, and conferences. I'm

a marketing and motivational speaker that focuses on topics to generate attention and build your business such as:


  • Perfecting Your Pitch
  • Become a Better Leader  ​
  • ​The Art of Public Speaking
  • R.U.N. Towards Your Dreams
  • How to Start Your Own Business
  • Drone Technology and Opportunity
  • The Art and Business of Making Movies
  • How to Write a Successful Business Plan 
  • Community Service and Economic Impact

TESTIMONIAL

​​​Forrest's first presentation on "How to Tap Into Georgia's multi-billion film industry sold out! Attendees praised his knowledge and wealth of information!

Forrest did not leave a "GA Film Industry" stone unturned. He described how he did it...step-by-step, gave plenty of examples, and shared tips and resources to empower those interested to take their first step. Don't miss the second and last opportunity to hear him. Possibly, the best 90 minutes you will spend this month.

Forrest Tuff, CC, ALB

Since joining Toastmasters, I have come to realize that public speaking, listening, and leadership go hand in hand. Toastmasters provides training to develop each of these skills. Along my journey, I've chaired events and received awards in speaking and evaluation competitions. This enables me to stay up to date with professional speaking trends.
