I believe speaking is a three sided coin of responsibility. On one side I have a responsibility to the person who hires me to make them look good for having the courage to put their reputation on the line for me.
On the other side I have a responsibility to the audience to push, challenge, entertain, engage and spark the listeners, enticing them to the edge of something new and pushing them to have the courage to fly.
Those two side are joined by the rim of the coin and on that edge lives my content, and passion for personal and professional leadership and H.U.M.A.N. Strategies™.
As a result, I design my messages to be rich with content that lasts beyond the moment of the presentation, humorous, and filled with relevant, powerful & engaging story telling. I have been cultivating my gift for more than 30 years in business, and I welcome the opportunity to explore the possibilities of working with you.
