L. Reed Polk

L. Reed Polk is a dynamic keynote speaker, consultant, meeting moderator... and intermingled with it all...a humorist as well! His compassion, understanding and sparkling sense of humor are the basis for customized engagements designed to create a positive influence on all who participate. Southern born and southern bred, Reed can delight listeners from California to the Carolinas with his distinctive one liners, affectionately dubbed, "Folk's Pearls".

After facing a major personal crisis, Reed totally changed the direction of his personal and professional life. With an open and loving style, he candidly shares his experiences and addresses life's purpose and perhaps the need for redefining it. Never leaving out, of course, what it takes to have the courage to act when a crossroad has been reached.

Throughout his adult life, Reed has had a platform for speaking...his presence, coupled with a wealth of experience, provides captivating, provocative, and valuable programs. His in-depth knowledge of "values conflict" were enhanced while connected with a helicopter base during the Vietnam War. Reed uses his maturity, style, and grace to bring substance, peace, and at least "one good laugh" to every meeting he attends!

Reed is a professional speaker and member of the National Speakers Association. In addition, for over a decade, he has worked within a university medical center where he assists the Chancellor, administrators, staff, and patients with the difficult decisions surrounding health care.
