When it comes to animals, Jo aims to help fellow humans understand the basic elements of critter communication – to see how and what we’re conveying even when we don’t know we are. She also shows audiences how animals are communicating with us all the time, we just don’t know their language. Her unique perspective based on predator / prey traits enables animals owners to enhance the human-critter bond; and helps those that encounter others' animals on the job to maintain personal safety.
When it comes to disasters, Jo’s goal is to move attendees one step forward in their preparedness planning -- be they seasoned Y2K junkies or complete novices. As a dedicated “pet mom” and “surrogate livestock handler” when neighbors are away, Jo is passionate about disaster planning for the entire family including our nonhuman friends. She encourages folks to give due attention to the matter, while being consistent with and customizing their approach to their own household make up, personal values and abilities, overall budget and storage space, as well as life priorities.
Regardless of topic or audience, Jo aims to provide historical and relatable context, understandable concepts, and bottom line considerations. She offers programs that are educational yet entertaining, and infused with real-world scenarios as well as personal experience.
Jo Becker is an Oregon-based speaker and writer that takes an entertaining, personable approach to educating audiences about ‘doom and gloom’ matters as well as ‘dry legal subjects.’ Her presentations are informative, empowering, and inspiring.
