Valda Boyd Ford, MPH, MS, RN, a self-proclaimed “daughter of the South,” is one of the most intellectually disarming and humorous presenters on leadership, privilege and cultural competency in the nation. Noted as being “captivating, humorous, and thought-provoking” by Jeff Joseph of Frito-Lay, Valda brings a homespun, down to earth informality to her presentations, and uses a combination of self-effacement and “Can we talk?” attitude that swings from virtual stand-up comedy to lump-in-the-throat poignancy. From describing her first experience with a public toilet in a West African refugee camp to explaining how to defuse rage and resentment when the arrogance of professionals contributed to the death of her son, she mesmerizes her audiences “…with her commanding presence, her authoritative presentations, and her mix of styles – humor, stories, solid use of data.”and cross-cultural experiences.
