I enjoy speaking to both academic audiences, to specialized companies and to the general public. I have considerable experience I have won a number of awards for my teaching and lecturing.

Consulting

 

I also do consulting with both non-profit and for profit organizations, most often concerning one or more of my specialties: the psychology of persuasion, the psychology of time and its consequences, and/or understanding cultural differences and communication.  I have worked with organizations both within the United States and internationally. I have recently, for example, spoken to groups at Google and Apple. You can contact either my literary agent, Kris Dahl of International Creative Management (KDahl@icmtalent.com), or e-mail me directly (robertle@csufresno.edu) for further information.
