Don't just wow the crowd. Change them.
Talks that get people talking. And doing.
You’ve got a lot riding on your keynote speaker. They -- their message, their style, their presence -- all need to “fit” with you, your company, and the flow and feeling of your event.
I’ve been speaking professionally for over 15 years -- much of that on behalf of the companies and organizations I worked with and for. So I know how to tailor a message to achieve a business goal, because I’ve done it... over 3,000 times.
Whether in breakouts or ballrooms, over 3 minutes or 3 days, to the resistant or the ready, I know how to not just wow a crowd, but change them. To move them to action.
But I’m also an event organizer, so I live in your world, as well. I manage the high-stakes stage of the oldest locally organized TED talk event in the world. So I understand how important it is to be reliable, responsive, and ready for anything.
That means when you hire me to speak at your event, you get a partner in achieving your business and event goals.

Find the Red
Don’t just manage change. Master it.
In business, every day is filled with changes and challenges we can't see coming. But no matter the size of the change, or how little we can do to stop it, we still want to feel in control. The question is: How?
Starting with a little-known detail of a well-known myth, this keynote is about a simple but powerful way your audience can go beyond managing change to mastering it.
Through eye-opening examples from business and life, your audience will learn:
- Why change is so unsettling and why typical approaches to “change management” too often go wrong
- An actionable model for mastering change at both at the individual and organizational levels
- What the “Red Thread” is, and how to find their own
Change the World in 18 Minutes or Less
An insider’s guide to the lessons of TED
With time and attention spans constantly dwindling, your leaders and teams need to change thinking and behavior -- quickly.
As it turns out, the secrets for how are right in front of us: TED talks. Those short 3- to 18-minute talks that, when successful, permanently change how you see the world.
This highly engaging session is a TED-talk insider’s tour through how to create change when time and attention are at a premium:
- The secret story within the most popular TED talks...and the most effective business communications and brands
- How and why people say “no” to change, and how to get a “yes” instead
- A “TED template” your audience can use right away to turn ideas into action
Tune in, Turn On, Stand Out
Strategic speaking for [Your Industry]
Note: This talk is always customized to how your particular industry can most benefit from speaking as a form of thought leadership.
This often feels like a world of diminishing returns: new ideas don’t stay new for long, clients and customers have shorter and shorter attentions spans, and yet the need to differentiate — and convert — is as strong as ever.
Is the answer really some magical new product or process? No. The channels may have changed, but humans haven’t. There’s still nothing that beats the effectiveness -- and ROI -- of face-to-face time with your prospects.
In this practical, but empowering, session, your audience will learn:
- How and where strategic speaking best fits into your brand strategy
- How to find the right topics, messages, and experts in your organization
- Three simple tools for using a strategic program to achieve your business goals
My speaking fees for keynotes and in-person engagements range from $10,500 to $24,000, depending on the location, duration, and level of customization you need.
That typically covers:
- A 30-minute pre-event planning call with event organizers
- A 60-90 minute keynote presentation
- An additional breakout session or workshop at the event
- My attendance at and promotion of the event and event-related activities
Additionally, I charge a flat fee for travel, quoted up front, that includes airfare and incidentals. Simpler for everyone!
Will I ever do a talk for less? Yes, in rare cases, I will. When? If you don't need all of what I typically include, above, or if your cause or organization is near and dear to my heart. Basically, if there’s equal value on both sides, we can get creative.
