I spent enough time during my corporate career sitting through boring presentations to recognize the challenge that exists in finding the right speaker. I’ve sat through dozens of training sessions and conferences and experienced a variety of speakers, some were good, but most were boring. I came to realize that the success of an event relies on a speaker that is able to achieve three things:
I began speaking professionally in 2008 and since that time I’ve invested considerable time and effort to create compelling and valuable talks that engage audiences and create a catalyst for change. I’m truly passionate about speaking and my hope is that this page will provide you all of the information you need to make your next event a success.
Empowering Performance Through People
Since the industrial revolution we’ve built companies using an archaic model that originated in the military. Consider for example that the structure, strategy and operation of most organizations today is built around a top-down approach to motivating and managing employees. Unfortunately unless you are in the military, this inverted approach to operating a business is nothing more than a path to diminishing profits and lack luster performance.
Empowering and Motivating Multi-generational Workforce
Never before have we been faced with such generational diversity in the workplace. With the number of millennials in North America joining the workplace soon to surpass Generation X and Baby Boomers, we are poised for a distinct shift (or collision!) in how we interact, communicate, and work.
Empowering Customers: Capitalizing on Connections to Maximize Customer Value
Every client, customer, and member interacts with an organization or association through multiple channels. It is through these interactions that customers form their impression of whether the organization adds value, and the various forms within which they can receive that value. It is for this very reason that every conversation that our employees, board members and contractors have counts.
Empowering Leader: Increasing Employee Morale and Productivity
Leadership can be a daunting task. Balancing our own business and personal objectives while managing a team of unique individuals can be draining mentally and emotionally. With little time available to spend with staff, the real question becomes how can we get staff to do more, care more, and be present?
Empowering Your Brand: Building and Sustaining Market Distinction
Getting the most out of an employee is the single greatest challenge any CEO or business owner faces. Despite the best of intentions and effort, our ability to engage, motivate and manage employees can be overly complex and time consuming.
Self-Empowerment: Developing Resolve, Resilience and the Drive to Thrive
In today’s fast paced, high stress work environments it’s crucial to be clear on what success looks like for both ourselves, our clients and our organization. Achieving this clarity results from developing resolve, resilience and an internal drive. Although developing these traits are unique and personal to everyone, there are key distinctions in their development that are founded in becoming and remaining self-empowered. In this talk we discuss the origin of stresses in today’s workplace, and introduce proven methods to develop resolve, resilience and to create an internal drive that will propel us beyond our day-to-day issues formulating a clear vision and path to our desired future.
