The World is Big, Fast, and Televised
As companies move themselves through digital transformation, employees and sometimes customers are feeling a bit left behind. Stress, anxiety, and depression are on the rise, at the very same time that companies seek better creativity and collaboration from their teams. And faster. And always on. (Do you see why this might be tricky for your employees?)
Everyone is “on stage” these days, as the world all has smartphones and the need to feel served by the companies they work with.
My work as a digital culture interpreter and guide over the last several years leads to talks, speeches, guidance, and workshops around how to retrofit humans for the digital world. One strong focus lately is talking about how to accept and embrace all the variety of individuals. We all come one to a pack, and we’re all just a little bit #dented.
Our Work Together
Near as I can tell, there are a few set reasons that people hire me to work with them, and there are a few projects that I do more than others. Why do people hire me?
- I do a lot of wide-ranging research and observation of digital culture and how it impacts buyers and employees.
- I’m super personable and down to earth and have a knack for explaining things in a way that bosses and employees understand.
- I’m professional enough without ever being a stuffed shirt but also not the untucked swear-word-jar-filling type, either.
- I customize each presentation for the organization I serve.
- I help companies make decisions and spend less money on the process.
What do we do together?
- Internal or external – I’m a really good keynote speaking professional
- Internal project – I help improve creativity and collaboration with internal teams. With sales, C-suite, marketing, etc.
- Internal project – I give workshops and talks about building better management and leadership practices for the digital age. – with C-suite
- External project – I help build more personalized content marketing experiences for companies. – with marketing teams.
- External project – I do limited video, audio, and text content writing for companies because I love staying connected to that space.
I Value Your Time and Trust
Time is the most valuable of our resources. Trust is gold. Because of this, I have a few promises to you:
I only say yes to projects I believe I can help you grow.
I only promote and work with companies I believe in.
I only work with companies who can move and act nimbly.
I don’t negotiate all that much.
What I Am And What I Am Not
I am a business advisor, mostly around digital transformation, digital marketing, and content marketing. I work directly with companies and/or sometimes with the marketing agencies of record. I am not a marketing agency and don’t compete with them. (Agencies, call me!)
Most often, I’m the guy who gets a lot of people inside your company to see the value in earning customers through an experiential approach, and who gives you starting points to creating meaningful business relationships with the people you most want to serve.
Email me ([email protected]) and start by telling me about you and the company. I’ll do a quick poke around and reply back. If it makes sense, we’ll set up a call. If that’s good, I’ll send a proposal and kapow. We’ll be on the way. Good? Great!

Biographies are really weird things. About pages. All that. You basically have to primp yourself up and act all pompous and important and make sure people know why you’re worth it. I’m a really approachable and nice-seeming guy. Never hesitate to introduce yourself to me when you see me out and about, okay? I’m nice. Promise.
