“Ladies and gentlemen, your keynote speaker today almost didn’t get here. Not because his plane was late, but because after I picked him up, we were having such a good conversation, I wanted to steal him for the whole day and pick his brain.” That’s how I was recently introduced by a CEO to his company, and that’s what I do: inspire, educate, share and help others think about whatever it is they’re working on. I’m an ideas guy with nearly thirty years of practical outcomes that have affected multiple industries and hundreds of companies around the world. You can see the whole resume here, but what I would much rather you do is experience it for yourself in my writing, videos, and photography.
Or just ask for my smartphone number and discover for yourself whether you should add a philosopher, photographer and writer to your next event and your ongoing growth strategy.
“My philosophy is to only do excellent work. Not because of ratings or reviews or even referrals, but because one day, in an audience of thousands, I might make a difference in the life of one person.”
