Live events are magical at the best of times. Organizers forget the immense effort and cost involved with putting on the experience if their attendees write rave reviews about their time at the conference. And if they like the speakers? That goes in the win column, too. That’s my job.
Insight, Action and Personable Humor
My role in your event is to mash the best of what I know against my research about your industry and the conversations I have with your attendees, and turn it into something of value and action and fun. Look, I’m not a juggler or a magician but I am also not a stuffy suit. My job is to deliver value to your attendees AND make you look good for hiring me.

Right For Your Event?
I speak at leadership, marketing, and sales events mostly. I’ve also spoken for HR events, many dozens of professional association events, as well as private corporate team events. I’ve got speeches ranging from under an hour to a speech plus a workshop, and don’t forget the opportunity for book signings!
Here are my top two presentations for 2020:
StoryLeader: How Smart Leaders Use Stories to Do the Heavy Lifting – The distance between idea and execution is vast. Leaders realize that attempting to tell a story in numbers is like trying to serve soup with a pencil. they spend a lot of time correcting their teams, reworking effort that doesn’t line up to the original vision, and stepping in to make decisions that they thought should be completely obvious. StoryLeader is a guided process designed to help leaders work smarter by using the power of well-crafted stories to motivate and guide your team towards better execution of the organization’s vision. It is a tool to transfer leadership DNA to everyone the story comes in contact with.
Viking on a Rainbow Space Shark: Brand Stories in the Age of Robots – How do you reach your ideal customer? How do you communicate that you’re the right one for them? And in a world where everyone says the same watered down and generic things, how can you create meaningful content that attracts a community and earns you the right to build a marketplace? Whether you’re a stodgy old B2B company or a new direct-to-consumer brand, we have to share stories that are more personable, more human, and that deliver better value to the people we hope to reach and serve.
The Process of Booking Me
I’m pretty easy to work with. Get in touch with me and we’ll figure out dates and rates and all that kind of stuff.
What You Should Know
If you really don’t know me yet, it’s tricky, I admit it. You’re worried: is he professional enough? (Yes.) Will he swear on stage? (He tries not to swear on stage.) Will he honor his commitments? (Every time.) Is he entertaining? (Oh, that I am. I mean, I’m no Cirque Du Soleil, but I’m fun.) Will he stick around after his speech? (Most times! I love mingling before and after. It helps me better tune the message to who is there.) Is he fussy? (Not at all. My requirements are rather simple. A couple bottles of water, a lav mic, a clicker, and I’m on my way. No trampolines. No smoke effects. No elephants.)
Okay? So, if you want someone to speak at your event, I’m your man. I promise!
