Keynote Speaking


Speaker Magazine

I’ve never met a TV camera that I didn’t love. But as much as I enjoy that work, connecting with live audiences, and getting to hear the new insights that they develop as a result of our time together, is incredibly gratifying.

National Speakers AssociationMy past has uniquely qualified me to make a difference in people’s lives in the present. I know that real change happens in a moment, and being a part of those pivotal moments for individuals, associations, and organizations is some of the most important work that I do.


What’s on Your Billboard?


“Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.”
— Dean Vernon Wormer, Animal House

What’s on Your Billboard? is an inspiring access to personal and organizational change that begins by considering the “billboard” that all of us are, and will be in the future. Are we an example? Or a warning?

What’s on Your Billboard? is more than just personal transformation; it is also a vehicle to inspire change in others, especially within organizations, families or teams. You don’t need to be a celebrity for your face to grace an important “billboard” and to stand for something that matters for reasons much larger than individual benefit.

Most importantly, What’s on Your Billboard? isn’t just future-based; it’s not next year’s car or next season’s new clothes. We are all already being a billboard for something. All of us go through life as an example or a warning. What’s on your billboard? What do you want it to be? This speech will ensure that those answers will be in total alignment, effective right now.

Audiences will learn:

  • The one mental condition that must exist before any meaningful change can happen (and how to create that condition before they leave the room);
  • New distinctions in changing thinking;
  • How to outgrow problems, transcend them, and ensure they don’t reappear starting right now, today;
  • You hit rock bottom when you stop picking up the shovel to start digging again. Why not starting again is more important than stopping in the first place;
  • Why “action” is the magic word, and how to effectively remove all obstacles which have existed in the past;
  • How the concept of legacy can be a powerful tool to create change, and more importantly, how to use it with velocity;
  • And much more!
