The best speakers don’t just “speak” … they engage.
Let M.C. Coolidge engage, entertain, and energize your next event!

Well-known as a local writer, Coolidge’s column, “Sense and the City,” appears each Thursday in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune’s TICKET section, and her guest columns frequently appear in the paper’s opinion pages. Her essays have also run in the Op/Ed sections of the St. Petersburg Times, Tampa Tribune, Bradenton Herald, and Pelican Press.

As a speaker, M.C. shares her fresh, funny, and forthright point of view with a diverse range of audiences. Whether she’s tackling political and social issues, celebrating living on the Suncoast, making sense of Sarasota’s “hot topics,” or facing the challenges of life with boldness, Coolidge has a reputation for telling it like it is … with humor, grace, and a healthy appreciation for the opinion of others.

She is available as a keynote, guest speaker, panelist, and emcee for a variety of events — including conferences, business and employee meetings, classroom settings, forums, fundraising events, clubs, organizations, and alumni association meetings. Upcoming speaking and signing events are shown on the right side of this page.
