In my prior roles, I organized a lot of events for groups, from small corporate training to conferences for hundreds. If there's one thing I learned, there are three keys to the success of any event - the venue, the food and the speakers. I can't help with the venue, or the food, but perhaps I could help you with one - a speaker.

Like you, I worked hard to find the right fit. My hope is that this page will help make it easy for you to get the information you need to make the best decision possible.

I LOVE to speak to groups - I enjoy the enthusiasm of a great crowd as we process thoughts and ideas together.

 

 

Here’s what you can expect from me:

  1. Prompt and clear communication.
  2. A personal phone consultation with me prior to your event, so I can better understand how I can best serve you and your audience.
  3. A professionally prepared, dynamically delivered presentation focused on achieving the outcomes you want with your audience.
  4. If requested, I'll create a custom resource page for all the materials used in the presentation, along with links to books, articles, and other resources I believe will be helpful.
  5. A quick follow-up communication after the event, to make sure I met your expectations. (I also want to know how you think I can improve.)
