Gerald Rau is available to speak on many topics, but enquiries need to be made far enough in advance to allow time to plan international travel from Taiwan. The more things that can be scheduled in one area for one trip, the more worthwhile it will be. Please use the Contact us page for scheduling.

No upcoming events are scheduled at this time.
