Get Started

I equip leaders to motivate and mobilize their teams to reach their goals, both personally and professionally, and multiply that success year after year.

I believe a keynote speaker should fulfill two critical objectives. They should inspire your people with entertaining stories and energizing imagery. They should also instruct them with high quality content that dramatically changes the way they work and live.

I’m committed to bringing both of these dynamics to your conference or special event.

I understand that finding a refreshing and relevant keynote speaker is difficult today. Everyone seems to look and sound the same. I’ve tried very hard to do this differently and deliver a dramatically different speaking experience to my clients.

My keynote topics focus on how to motivate the people who work for you to give 100 percent effort 100 percent of the time and how to mobilize them to focus the energy of that effort on achieving world class results. My mantra is this: purpose, passion, performance, profit.

While my specific professional expertise is in the sales side of the business, I’ve customized keynote speeches to audiences as diverse as technology, agriculture, healthcare, and not-for-profit organizations.

In addition to delivering a keynote address at your conference, I can provide a powerful learning experience in a concurrent workshop. I also conduct more intensive half-day and full-day seminars, all of which are highly interactive and deeply informative.

WHAT YOU CAN COUNT ON WHEN YOU HIRE ME

  1. Someone who is real, authentic, and human. I firmly believe that I’m not the hero of the story. Your people are. I’m their guide to a better business and a better life.
  2. Someone who will customize their presentation to the needs of the moment. I don’t have a canned speech or a pre-set program. I take the time to get to know the context of your audience and adapt my topics to the demands of their world.
  3. Someone who’ll be available both before and after your event to interact with participants. In others words, you get more than a speaker but a partner in developing the people who attend.
