If you like what you read on this blog, you will really enjoy the inspiration I can offer at your next program. I connect with your audience in a very personal way. In my 20 plus year career as a trainer, leader of a training department, staff at an executive leadership center, and as a participant in countless development programs, I have experienced programs with great and terrible speakers. I know what a really great speaker is and I make sure I reach for that high bar every time.
We have all experienced presenters who make or break a program. I know firsthand that the quality of the speaker will make or break any event. I hope that this page will help you determine that I can make your event a success.
I am passionate about helping people find their inspiration. I hope to be considered a resource for you. I focus on leading people to productive leadership through personal accountability and effectiveness. I believe that those who find their inspiration make good decisions.
I am an experienced writer and speaker. I speak to groups of all sizes and at all levels of an organization. I have experience connecting with small groups of four or five or very large conference sessions of 500+. I have presented to middle school children, Fortune 500 executives, as well as international conferences.
