Book Curt to Speak

Invite Curt to speak at your event or learn more about his work. His ability to seamlessly integrate the complexities of neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology with the finer disciplines of Christian spirituality offers audiences a lasting, transformative experience.

Listeners consistently receive a refreshing perspective on their life story, deeper insight into the human mind and a greater appreciation for the role God plays in renewal and growth.

Relying on the timeless wisdom offered in the Bible, Curt’s presentations resonate with groups that seek an opportunity to engage in honest discussion about the impact of Being Known—by God and others—in faith and social communities, business, culture, the arts and beyond.

Curt speaks to groups of 20-3,000+ at churches, conferences and retreats. He's prepared for main-stage keynotes, event breakout sessions, leadership training, speaker panel Q&A and customized multi-day workshops. His work is endorsed by numerous prominent writers, artists, leaders, pastors, theologians and mental health professionals.
