with actionable insights on
Culture, Change and Leadership

My Perspective

As a culture change strategist and business author, I’ve seen the words culture change, change and leadership defined numerous ways over the years. Is leadership fueled by charisma and positive thinking? Pinstripes and red power ties? Decisiveness? Is it all about the situation? Is it meant only for the chosen few who rise to the top? Or, is there a different story?

With over two decades of executive coaching, speaking, and (most importantly!) real-life, in-the-trenches business experience, I have a radically different view. I believe that leadership is about action, not title, tenure, or position. Change is a force to be reckoned with, and culture is a leverage point that costs nothing but changes the game completely.

My Unique Approach

You’ve probably sat through a lot of conferences, workshops and corporate events.

  • Have you noticed that most of the glossy speeches that get audiences hyped up don’t leave any lasting impact when the conference buzz fizzles out?
  • Or do you ever wonder why we pay so much to hire a speaker and pay his/her travel expenses when they’re going to deliver the exact speech that they gave to every audience for the last year (or more) and we might as well just watch a video recording?

I’ve been on all sides of these kinds of events, from planning to presenting, attending to facilitating. I know the effort, time and expense involved. So I make it my goal to maximize the benefit to your organization by using my experience and expertise to address the topics most relevant to your group.

Whether a corporate event or a conference, a seminar, summit or even a simple meeting, I customize my presentation to ensure that your attendees will get tremendous value and lasting impact from our time together.

If all you need is 45 minutes of energizing business-themed entertainment, there are a lot of great options out there. But if your time is better spent on a thoughtfully designed presentation that addresses the issues that are unique to your organization, I invite you to download and fill out the worksheet below and send it back to me. I’ll use the information you give me about your event and your organization to help make your event the best it can be.
