Great ideas spark great growth.


“Your speaker almost didn’t make it today. Not because his plane was late but because we were having such a good conversation, I wanted to steal him for the day and pick his brain.” That’s how I was recently introduced by a CEO and that’s what I do: Inspire, educate, share and help others grow. You can see my resume here, but why not experience it for yourself in my writingvideos, and photography. Or just ask for my smartphone number and let’s discuss how I can make a contribution to your next event and 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.”


I’m a professional keynote speaker, executive coach and leadership trainer. I have spoken in 50+ cities worldwide a year since 1991.
