Bring humor, intensity and authenticity to your next event. My keynotes, breakout sessions and half-day seminars are funny, interactive, challenging and inspirational, combining decades of public speaking with more decades of experience in business and leadership. (If you added all those decades up, I'd be 120 years old. It pays to start early.) 

See below for some of my most popular topics, and please free to reach out to get more information or if you'd like a customized presentation. 

The Big Scary

45 - 60 Minutes

 

Keynote

Breakout Session

Declaring bold goals can be terrifying. In this talk, I lay out a framework for setting big targets (explaining why I don't call them "goals.") Participants will leave with actionable steps to help name the dreams that get them excited. (Or nauseous. Or both!)

Get Your Story Straight

45 minutes - 3 hours

Keynote

Breakout Session

Seminar

In order to understand who you are—as a person or a company—you need to be able to answer Four Foundational Questions. I explore each question, showing how the answers create the core of your personal or company identity. The longer the session, the more exploration we can do together. 

That Culture isn't Going To Create Itself

45 minutes - 3 hours

Keynote

Breakout Session

Seminar

Creating a healthy company culture takes work. Without effort, your culture will be defined by the loudest voices in the room. I dive into the creation of an intentional culture, so Doug in Sales doesn't take over and declare Booty-Short Fridays a thing.

Employee 4 Life

45 minutes - 3 hours

Keynote

Breakout Session

Seminar

How different would your hiring practices be if you knew you couldn't fire someone? I introduce the idea of Lifetime Employment and how radically changing the way you think about hiring and firing can transform your entire company. Longer sessions include deeper work on the entire hiring and onboarding process. 

The Urgent Versus the Important

45 minutes - 3 hours

Keynote

Breakout Session

Seminar

If you aren't regularly assessing your priorities and focusing your work on the most important tasks facing you, you'll get lost in day-to-day firefighting. I address the methods used to focus on Important tasks, instead of getting caught up in Urgent ones.

Building a Powerhouse Sales Team

45 minutes - 3 hours

Keynote

Breakout Session

Seminar

Sales is the fuel that powers the engine of your company—run out of sales, and you are dead in the water. I break down the elements of a successful sales team (no matter the industry) and show you how to keep your pipeline (and engine) full.

Creating Your First Strategic Plan

45 minutes - 3 hours

 

Breakout Session

Seminar

A well-developed strategic plan is the key to building an Intentional Business, but doing it the first time can be a daunting task. In this interactive session, I walk participants through creating a strategic plan for their business, and how to update/revise it over time. This session can also be used to create personal Strategic Plans for individuals in your organization.
