Professional speaking is a thing I fell into accidentally.

In a previous life I agreed to do a key-note speech at a trade conference, and I did so hoping to use the gig as a step in selling my company’s risk management services. After the conference, I got a bunch of calls from people who actually wanted to hire me — to do more professional keynotes. So I did. And now here I am, a decade later, doing more speaking than risk management.

Most of my pre-designed talks are fairly interactive. I believe that if an audience can engage with me and one another, workshopping with the concepts that I am bringing to the table to solve their own real world challenges, what they will take away will have away greater value. Of course, some events by their nature require little or no interaction. For those types of events, I can easily tailor my presentations to be a more traditional public-speaker motivational talk.

I am happy to create unique talks and presentations specifically designed to your organization, event, or industry.

Or, if you prefer, you can choose from a talk or presentation I’ve already developed. A more complete list of these pre-designed presentations can be providing upon request. However, by far the most popular of these are:
