Motivational Speaking

"The Value of Expressive Writing"

Inspiring. Motivating. Healing. Ronni Miller, Founder and Director of the nationally known Write It Out® Program, stimulates and nurtures her audiences to experience release and relief in her interactive presentations. Writer, educator and motivator, Miller created Write It Out® in 1992 as a motivational and expressive writing program for individuals of all ages. During her presentations to groups of all sizes, she guides the audience to employ her unique expressive writing technique to release emotional toxins for personal growth. Practical techniques are interspersed with entertaining anecdotes from her life story, and revelations from the scientific literature of the American Medical Association and others which attest to the value of expressive writing for healing.

One format that has proved particularly successful is an introductory motivation speech by Ronni Miller followed by an actual workshop on Expressive Writing For Personal Growth.
