Daughter of Holocaust and Atomic Bomb Survivors Speaking throughout Florida

Meant to beRoslyn Franken, inspirational speaker and author of Meant to Be: A True Story of Might, Miracles and Triumph of the Human Spirit, delivers her multi-media program with the powerful true story of her Jewish parents surviving and finding love against all odds. She is now touring Florida and scheduling throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Upcoming events are

  • March 21 at 7pm ,  West St. Petersburg Community Library at Petersburg College,             6700 Eighth Avenue North, St. Petersburg, FL
  • April 20 at 7:30 pm at the University of Tampa Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values, 601 Frederic H. Spaulding Dr., Tampa, FL

All events are free and open to the public to attend. Book signings will follow each  presentation. Her books are available on Amazon, and a limited number of autographed books are available at the Florida Holocaust Museum gift shop in St. Petersburg, FL.

Personal testimonies from Holocaust and other World War II survivors help to ensure this turning point in human history is not forgotten. By listening to survivors tell their stories, the audience can relate the real-life experiences of these individuals to the history.

The problem is that there are fewer and fewer survivors left to give their testimonies. Also, those still alive often do not want to talk about their past, and others are sometimes unable to tell their story due to physical and/or other health limitations.

Roslyn Franken is carrying the torch for future generations by sharing her parents’ inspiring story of survival, love and triumph through her important work as a professional speaker and author of Meant to Be. Check for her book in libraries and in holocaust museums.

For more information or to schedule Roslyn to speak, contact info@speakersinternational.com or call her agent Liz Mitchell (843)902-4799.

Meet her in Sun City, FL at Aston Gardens on January 13 or in Dade City, FL at the Hugh Embry Library on January 24.

 Jewish and other faith-based audiences and community organizations are touched by the extraordinary story relayed in Franken’s acclaimed book which is currently being adapted through Five Star Studios Inc. for production as a feature film .

Franken’s programs are based on her book which relates the true story of her Jewish parents as two young prisoners of war held captive in opposite sides of the world.

Roslyn’s mother, Sonja Franken, was in the concentration camps of Nazi Europe surviving Auschwitz, and her father, John Franken, was a prisoner of war in Japan surviving the Nagasaki atomic bombing. They eventually met, and Roslyn’s own life story is buoyed by her parents’ resilient natures.

Praise from her recent audiences summarizes the effect of the presentation:

“Roslyn, what an amazing story on such an important topic, and one that should be shared with all! Your presentation was emotionally charged, uplifting and you presented in a manner that was both entertaining and inspiring. Your ability to connect to a variety of personalities, cultures, and ages is a true gift and you would be a huge asset to ANY group who is looking for an amazing, one-of-a-kind speaker.” ~ Rabbi Mendy Yarmush, Chabad Wiregrass, Florida

“She kept everyone spellbound throughout her story and it was clear that it touched everyone in different ways…the whole world deserves to hear your story,” Jessica Dube, Ravines Retirement Residence.

Franken’s books, Meant to Be and The A List: 9 Guiding Principles for Health Eating and Positive Living,  are available on Amazon. Her worldwide multi-media presentations of Meant to Be combined with book signings can be arranged through Speakers International.

Want to Know about Tiny House Living?

Guest post by Joel Allen, featured on Speakers International for topics including tiny houses, media training and other communications.

joelYou’ve heard about the tiny house movement. Maybe you’ve seen TV shows like Tiny House Nation or Tiny House Hunters. You’re no doubt aware that the traditional American dream of a roomy, multi-bedroom home is not as attractive (or affordable) to Millennials as it was to previous generations. But you probably haven’t heard how local and state governments around the country are (belatedly) responding to the revolution in downsized living by altering zoning laws and building codes. Or how aging Baby Boomers are waking up to the advantages of tiny house living in retirement. Or how some activists see the smaller house trend as a potential solution to homelessness.

I’m Joel Allen, a seasoned broadcast journalist who’s done more than just research and report on the tiny house movement. I’m living it. My wife and I made the transition from 2,000 square feet, three bedrooms and a two-car garage to less than 400 square feet, one miniature bedroom and no garage. And we love it.

We’ve learned a few things about the pros and cons of tiny house living and we’re not saying it’s entirely easy. But I’d be happy to share with your group or company some of what we now know about the ins and outs of a downsized life and maybe I can help open your eyes to the huge benefits of a tiny house.

Ask Speakers International to Schedule David Holloway

David is an outstanding leader, an exceptional teacher, who has a very powerful message!”Jonathan Holloway –  Dean of Yale.

“I’ve known the Holloway family for over 30 years… they are leaders among their peers, grounded in strong family values of discipline, hard work, integrity, and love for their country” – General Colin Powell

4-19

David A. Holloway is a compelling keynote speaker, author, and business leader.

Today, he brings the most important messages, and his compelling story, to leaders who are committed to an extraordinary future — and for organizations who must outperform the competition and win.

The “Ultimate Underdog” Story:

 From the very beginning David was fortunate to have grown up around leaders and world-class competitors.  He was born on a game day, where his All-Pro father’s New England Patriots were victorious. On that day he was soon greeted by his maternal grandfather, two-time NHL champion with the Boston Bruins, Johnny “Pie” McKenzie.

Later on David also wanted to play sports, but in the beginning – he was labeled “too small, too slow, and too weak.” Despite all the obstacles he made a declaration to never stop dreaming big.

He walked on at the University of Maryland and started out on the 6th team who couldn’t even get into practice. He later rose to become one of the all-time greats, a record holder, leader of one of the best defenses in Maryland history and team captain.

He continued onto the NFL where he made an immediate impact. He was nicknamed Superman by his team 14 days into his pro career.

While in Arizona he helped completely turn the losing culture around in record time. Building the foundation of a winning culture that took the Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl, for the first time in franchise history. That winning culture is still intact today.

David is more than just another pro athlete – he is an engaging speaker, an expert on leadership, peak performance, and team building.

As an international and motivational futurist his speaking engagements reach tens of thousands of people worldwide. Giving audiences a look into the future of highly successful world-class competitors – who consistently outperform the competition.

His credibility and therefore bottom line results are based on the fact that turning around underperforming teams, building championships, and organizational transformation is something he’s done – rather than just talk about.david speaking

“Insightful, inspirational, motivational, articulate, compassionate, a great leader,” are just some of the words used consistently by participants to describe David.

David’s accomplishments have landed him appearances on ABC, NBC sports, ESPN, ESPN Classic, the 700 club, and featured coverage on USA Today and the Washington Post. He’s guest lectured at Yale and has been featured speaker at the Challenger Center.

 “We share a lot more than just, formerly, being the number 54 at the University of Maryland.”Kevin Plank CEO of Under Armor

 “David came to Maryland as a walk-on. With his lead we were able to do things that we have never been able to do before, and he left here as one of the best!” – College coach
