"I believe our membership will be inspired by your innovative ideas. I hope we get the privilege of seeing you present again at a future ASTD event." — D.J. Netz, GP Strategies

Curt's Rhethorical Mathematics presentation, which he presented for CLE credit at the Law and Magic conference in June 2014, examines the role of mathematics as a rhetorical construct. Once removed from specialist journals, mathematics is open to interpretation, selective analysis, and creative presentation. Rhetorical Mathematics is perfect for attorney gatherings and other audiences that use but do not specialize in math.

As a Microsoft Excel expert and the author of more than 20 books and two dozen online courses on data analysis technologies, including Microsoft Excel 2013 Step by Step for Microsoft Press, Curt can demonstrate advanced Excel skills and business intelligence analysis techniques as all or part of any presentation.

In his teambuilding workshops, Curt leads your audience through a series of light-hearted exercises that encourage cooperative play and reinforce valuable communication skills.

"Curt is a great presenter with information that appeals to all levels of the group. His ability to motivate and inspire a group is highly recommended." — Linda Ludwick, Past President, Health Care Administrators Association
