A Speaker Who Works Closely With You To Ensure:

  • A Great Experience For Your Audience

    I understand that the way you communicate your message is as important as the message itself. As a speaker, I’ll inject the storytelling skills I’ve developed through my career as a documentary filmmaker to keep your audience engaged.

    I customize every speech to meet the interests and needs of your audience, and deliver it authentically. I’m also a big believer in driving action beyond the session itself, so your audience will leave with practical tips they will be able to implement moving forward.

  • A Great Experience For You

    I’m committed to helping you make your event a success. I’ll have a phone or Skype conversation with you to understand your audience, expectations and logistics. All your questions will be answered promptly either via email, phone or Skype.

    My presentation will be professionally prepared, educational and entertaining, and customized to your audience. And I’ll be sure to announce your event on my social media channels.

I’m so glad I came. What an amazing way to present the material!
