Engaging Alaskan Speakers
In today’s environment of movies, commercials, and video games, presenters are challenged to captivate and hold the attention of savvy audiences with little patience for boring, disorganized presentations. It’s simply not enough to be experts in your field, or to be a ‘good’ speaker.
Keith and Cindy’s presentations show that they understand that a motivating, persuasive presentation is a combination of knowledge, organization, preparation, and entertainment. Delivery must be polished and properly staged; visuals concise and supportive. Whatever the content of a speech, it must be engaging and memorable.
Either Keith or Cindy (or both) can do a 45 minute to 2 hour presentation for you. They always make their presentations interactive – with longer presentations, they’ll need room enough for the audience to break into groups of two or three. Anything over a half an hour should be interactive, to keep the audience’s attention, no matter who you have speaking.
They also have prepared several 3-7 hour workshops (see Workshop drop-down menu), or they can customize something to suit your needs. Just tell us what you want to be different for the audience after our presentation, or what 2-3 things you want them to remember.
Not only Alaskan Speakers, Keith and Cindy are both Distinguished Toastmasters, graduates of the Decker Communications school in San Francisco, and of the Bill Gove Professional Speaking program in Florida. They have given hundreds of speeches and interactive workshops since then, from Barrow to Los Angeles.
You can book either one of them separately, or book them to speak together – which always helps keep the audience’s interest. They’ve been married since 1976, and work together in their business: so they’ve got a lot of stories to illustrate their points and keep you entertained. You will find them to be sincere, entertaining, and knowledgeable speakers who know how to engage their audience!

In 2012 The Women Entrepreneurs of Alaska hired Keith Baldwin to be our Business Success Seminar Speaker. Keith delivered an outstanding presentation for our luncheon and almost every single person attending shared with me how much they enjoyed it.
I think what makes Keith unique is his approach is humble and yet very compelling. Even though he’s speaking to an entire group- you feel like he is talking to you. I can see why this would make him a wonderful coach as well.
Keith was definitely one of our top speakers of the year, with one of the greatest impacts. We will certainly ask him back! – Jennifer Christianson, VP, Beacon Media + Marketing
