Interview: Candace Campbell – Filmmaker and Speaker

Another in an occasional series of interviews with members of the National Speakers Association, Northern California Pro-Track class of 2008.

Candace Campbell Candace Campbell is a speaker with many talents.

A child model and actress since age nine, a stand-up comedienne since ’93 when she jumped off the therapists’ couch and grabbed a mic, Candy’s presentations are both witty and inspirational.

She started her own business, Peripatetic Productions, in 1995 in order to produce her first of two one-woman shows, and is a member of ASCAP (singers and composers union) and AFTRA (television/radio artists union).

She spent 20 years as a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse and has produced an award-winning documentary film on the psychosocial impact of having a micropremature baby, which has been seen in educational venues in most English speaking countries. She is a writer for TV and film. Her latest project, a novel based on her screenplay, Walking Point, was inspired by some of her own experiences caring for veterans suffering with PTSD during the ’70’s. She is also working on two non-fiction books (one for parents, one for siblings) to accompany her documentary on premature babies.

Candy speaks on many topics, but each of her presentations contains a common denominator: keeping personal standards high and intact in a world which tempts us to abandon scruples for the brass ring.

Speech topics include: Management Without Manipulation; Portraits of a Pariah : Navigating Society As A Single Mom; Premature Birth: Facts and Fiction; PTSD:The Gift That Keeps on Giving.
