20 seconds of Braveness

a 30-40 minute motivational talk where Megan covers some of her hilarious and embarrassing moments as a travel writer on assignment while making the point that stepping out of our comfort zone and taking risks leads to great rewards.

Behind the Scenes on the Royal Tour

after she spent 2 weeks working with Tourism New Zealand following the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George on their tour of New Zealand in April 2014. The machine that is a royal tour is a fascinating inside look at how this show gets on the road and how the British press work.

Random Acts of Kindness Day
