My Approach to Speaking

Your audience’s experience is my highest priority.

We’ve all sat through boring speeches and presentations with speakers droning on and on, reading their slides — not even aware that their audience is distracted,  scrolling on their phones, doodling or wondering when they’ll hear something useful. 

I take a bit of a different approach – instead of boring your audience, I coach them in a very interactive and engaging format to challenge their thinking, help them solve real-world problems and go back to work with newfound courage, information and action steps to help them do their jobs better.

My goal is for your audience to take action because we are deeply engaged in a group conversation that is truly helpful for them, rather than sit around listening to some boring presenter talk at them.

Speaking Topics

My favorite topics to speak on:

  • Crafting Culture: Every Leader’s Most Important and Most Neglected Responsibiity
  • How Our Brain Types Dictate our Motivators, Fears, Stress Responses and Information Needs
  • How to Future Proof Your Business

I can also work with you to craft a custom topic that immerses and engages your audience in deep thinking, learning and change suitable for their reality and circumstances. Please contact me to discuss your needs.
