IT'S SPEAKIN' SEASON (AKA MY FAVORITE SEASON EVER)

(via)

Q#1: What is the best part of being a Jes Baker for a living?

Hands down... speaking. Lecturing. Presenting. Sharing important information with a crowd and cracking terrible jokes while doing so. Whatever you wanna call it, it's my favorite thing IN THE WORLD.

Speaking is what allows me to connect with the most amazing individuals in real life (you, obviously!) which is super special for me since so much of my work happens on a computer.  And while book writing can be great... nothing beats meeting you, losing it while laughing, wiping away tears and listening to your stories. OH AND HUGS. So many hugs.

Guys, sometimes I get to hug for a living. (<-- That may be the most glorious sentence I've ever typed.)

Q#2: What do you speak about?

During the year I get to tour the country, usually delivering the lecture "Change the World, Love Your Body: The Social Impact of Body Love." I basically preach the importance of body autonomy, self-esteem, mental health, social justice and diversity and I do so at universities, conferences, community events, symposiums... sometimes even fashion shows. Nothing is off limits with this topic; I'll bring it anywhere it's requested.

The "professional" description of the lecture as explained by my agency starts out like this:

In her brilliantly irreverent presentation  "Change the World, Love Your Body.", Baker explores the state of our current body image issues, shares 10 effective ways for participants to individually re-frame the way they perceive themselves, and clearly illustrates how implementing these 10 actions will  positively affect us all on a global level. 



I've also lectured on mental health + resiliency, recovery and fashion as a form of political resistance. Have another topic in mind? We can definitely chat about how to make that happen. 

Spring of 2017 already has some amazing opportunities to meet fantastic people (the West Coast is really feelin' the body empowerment vibe this year!) and I CAN'T WAIT FOR EVEN MORE:

Q#3: So, how do I book that hot bod (and brain) of yours?

It's really simple! If you're a student, pitch it to your gender studies/multicultural/student activities division and have them (or you, if you're an overachiever;)) contact Kevin MacRae to set it all up. I even have a flyer you can print out and take with you and more information (including quotes about how awesome I am when handed a microphone) here! Easy peasy. 

Everyone else is welcome to directly contact Kevin (he's a peach)- you'll find his contact information is below.

We can also work out a Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls book selling situation if you'd like to have those as a part of the event too!

I can't WAIT to meet you, sign a book or two and tell you how rad you are. SEE YOU SOON!
