Book Me To Speak

I’ve delivered hundreds of messages and presentations to nonprofit organizations, college students, church groups, and businesses.  I make things thought-provoking, but easy-to-understand; telling stories, asking questions, using memorable analogies, and drawing from diverse sources of wisdom and insight–from Jesus of Nazareth to Steve Jobs. I want to equip and inspire my audiences to achieve greater success and happiness; to maximize their impact for their gain and the good of the world.

FLIP TO SIDE BE AND BE BOLD AS A LION

The cliche, shop-warn message of the typical motivational speaker is that confidence with people is grounded in what you believe about yourself.  That is true, but incomplete. What is also vitally important is what we believes about others.  In this message, I draw from the wisdom of social psychology, Hebrew proverbs, and the 80’s band Survivor to argue for a better way to maximize your boldness.

HOW TO BE COMPELLING IN A CLICHE WORLD

The definition of compelling is “evoking interest, attention, or admiration in a powerfully irresistible way.” Compelling people are exceptional and influential; they impact people’s lives and often achieve greater happiness and success.  Is “compelling” the same as “charismatic?” No.  Does it require being outgoing?  Absolutely not.  To be compelling, you must do what is uncommon.  In this message, I share five way to separate yourself from the stereotypical–for your gain and the good of the world.  

BIG HEARTED LEADERSHIP: 5 KEYS TO CREATE SUCCESS THROUGH COMPASSION

What if the greatest key to your success is beating inside your chest? I assisted my friend and client Donn Sorensen in writing the book Big-Hearted Leadership:  5 Keys To Create Success Through Compassion.  Donn is the president of Mercy East Communities (the #7 ranked Catholic healthcare system in the nation) and a longtime medical management executive who is also board chair of several nationwide charities.  In the book, Donn shows how compassion trickles down into every decision you make as a leader, right down to organizational structure, human resources, production, and all the way to your organizations bottom line.  Donn and I have developed a seminar that is appropriate for all types of leaders–from corporate executives and business managers to those who serve non-profits and ministries.

CUSTOMIZED PRESENTATIONS ON ENGAGEMENT AND IMPACT

It’s not uncommon for meeting planners to request a specific topic related to communication skills and/or meaningful connection.  I’m happy to customize a presentation to your specific needs and goals.
