For more than 10 years, as owners of HFK Presents, actor and professional speaker Terry Lynch and his wife Laura, a certified educator have combined their careers to develop programs for older students and adults that not only educate but entertain.
When audiences saw our historical programs for children, they told us that they wish learning about great historical figures could have been this much fun when they were in school. They enjoy our presentations, but they’re for kids, right?
Colleges, libraries, historical societies, and many other organizations were left wondering: what about the adults? Learning isn’t just for children, and everyone likes to have fun. So how could we bring history to life for the “kids at heart”?
We developed HFK Presents. These programs are for adult audiences who are never too old to learn something new about history’s most interesting and inspirational figures.
The 45 minute, one man interactive performances give audiences a new, first-person perspective on the people and events that make up our history and culture.
What kind of programs do we offer?
HFK Presents offers leadership programs, historical portrayal programs, and workshops for school districts, museums, historical societies, and corporations, as well as keynote addresses for organizations.
Terry has spoken to groups of all ages using his years of theatrical and improvisational training at Northern Illinois University, Second City Training Center, and i.O Theater, to create unique, interactive presentations that are both informative and motivational.
Terry’s wife Laura, a certified educator and member of Who’s Who in American Education and Who’s Who Among Young American Professionals, researches and co-writes the programs as well as develops in-services and workshops.
Most recently, Terry and Laura wrote Mistakes Happen: An Historical Guide to Overcoming Adversity, and Terry has been an occasional contributor on the “WGN-TV Morning Show”.
