Professional Speaker

Engaging Talks

Steven Biggs conducting a gardening workshop.

Part horticulturist, part rabid gardener, I inform, engage, and make it FUN!

My speaking experience with large groups includes:

  • Moderating panels, participating in panel discussions, addressing large audiences at gardening shows...even...a cooking demonstration on television.

My speaking experience with small groups includes:

  • Corporate lunch-and-learns, hands-on workshops, garden and horticultural clubs.
