Mortuary School Presentation for the Class “Swimming In the Deep End…Life as a Funeral Director” with David Speaks


I offer an informative, in-person presentation for your mortuary school students, that gives them a first hand look at what life as a funeral director is like. It is a motivational and educational presentation that helps students grasp the importance of the career they have chosen and the life-changing moments that will make them a better person and funeral professional along the way.

Following the in-person presentation and Q&A, I will be staying to conduct one-on-one conversations and interviews with students interested in our free placement services.
