Through using wit, humor, self-disclosure and a vast wealth of experiential as well as academic knowledge, I strengthen, encourage and equip God's People for life's many challenges. I will speak at almost any location including churches and filling in preaching for Pastors who aren't available to preach for whatever reason. For distances over 15 miles I will need to charge for travel expenses.
Paul's expertise is explaining the cause and effect of emotional disorders. He points out the warning signs of negative feelings and how they are triggered. His personal experiences provide powerful solutions for breakthrough. What I appreciated about Paul's presentation is his ability to blend the "big picture" with the smaller details of his talk. His voice inflection keeps your attention and makes for an enjoyable listening experience.
Paul's content is unique! You will definitely learn something new, but very practical! He speaks with passion and conviction because the truths he shared have worked in his own life. He connects well with his listeners and has great empathy for those that are struggling or need encouragement. He is definitely one speaker who is worth hearing!
I went to two of Mr. Paul Wider, speaking engagements, one on depression, and the other on communication skills. both were very informative, interesting, professionally well done, with a good sense of humor. I liked that he encouraged participation. I'm looking forward to his next talk.
Relaxed, inviting, engaging, interactive, not polished or a phony, the real deal! and that's what makes him more relatable I think to the group that was there.
So what the microphone didn't work! That's life. Heard his message loud and clear.
Paul's presentation was practical and helpful for application to everyday life. Paul is articulate and engaging with his audience. Attending Paul's sessions is a valuable use of time for me and anyone interested in personal growth.
Mr Wider was interesting and knowledgeable about his topic of: "Communication Skills and Conflict Conflict Resolution Skills for Great Relationships." Wider engaged and involved his audience with questions of his own, and allowed the audience to ask him questions as well. Wider was able to share from his own experience in a vulnerable way. Yet he maintained a high degree of professionalism and was full of knowledge. Wider's humorous and playful ways of bringing his points across was refreshing.

Oh, also, if I use my laptop for presenting information I will need a screen and projector that would interface with my laptop.
