First Sign Language Dolls Donated to Deaf Children

Thelma the Guide Dog gave paws of approval to the first signing dolls for the deaf.. She has dedicated her life to supporting the blind. She recently expanded her efforts to the deaf by coordinating the donation of signing dolls to every deaf school in America.

Thelma’s objective is to have every deaf child in the world with a signing doll in the next three hears. She has aligned herself with local Lion’s Clubs across the United States and with every deaf school in the nation.

Thelma’s human support comes from Rob Hartley, and sometimes she uses his creativity. Hartley has hosted a radio show for six years, has created licensed characters and collaborated with many companies as a creative consultant as well as speaking in front of more than a half million people. Also, he created an all blind bowling league which became national champions. He is the only person in the world to bowl four 24-hour bowling marathons non-stop while averaging over 208.

Thelma’s website is ThelmaTheGuideDog, and their publicist is SusanGarren@gmail.com.

Speakers International is proud to introduce Thelma and the rest of the gang. Please contact us to discuss your programming opportunities for Rob and Thelma for corporate programs anywhere in the world.

However, this book caught me right from the first page. Every part showed me ways I can move myself along my path to where I want to be. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in a more successful, happy and satisfied self.”

Drew Price, management consultant and productivity coach in London, said, “Ken’s books are very well thought out, laid out and effectively presented.

Ken Wallace Featured in New Film

Ken Wallace is featured as one of the experts in a new personal development movie starring Jack Canfield, John Gray and Marci Shimoff.

Keeper of the Keys is sure to raise the bar on the self-help movie genre, according to Robin Jay of the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau (LVCSB) who terms it “the most cinematic, dramatic, well-produced self-help movie that has ever been produced.” The red carpet premier is scheduled for December 8 in Las Vegas. Watch for the DVD available for pre-order here soon.

The movie follows the character Michael Walden – a creative director – on an incredible journey of discovery. Michael has become quite a victim. First, he lost his job after more than 14 years of loyal, hard work. Then, his house ends up in foreclosure. He grows increasingly negative, understandably. When his fiancée breaks up with him, he starts to reflect on all the times he’s reacted negatively to life itself. He realizes he needs help – and begins a magical journey where he encounters some of the most incredible experts who share their deeply personal stories of adversity and growth.

The first truly engaging self-help movie, Keeper of the Keys is funny and entertaining, yet puts the experts in a brilliant light. It is produced by TwoBirds, Inc., which is owned by LVCSB owner Robin Jay, and directed by Scott Cervine, Movies from the Heart.

Ken Wallace is an inspirational and motivational speaker with solid advice for self improvement and successful living. He is the author of the new book Your Better Self: A Simple Guide to Where You Want To Be and the new companion publication Your Better Self Study Manual: A Simple Guide for Living on Purpose in Peace and Prosperity.
