If not…you’ve come to the right place. Let’s get started!
I’ve been told that my speaking style is informative, interactive, upbeat, thought-provoking, engaging, and direct. People typically walk away from my talks commenting on how I’ve opened their eyes to approaches, strategies and solutions they had never thought about. Each presentation that I deliver is customized to individual audiences to match their needs and interests.
I provide everything from group facilitation, panel presentations, inspirational talks, and educational seminars. I’m happy to work with organizations in the corporate arena, non-profit, government, and university, as well as targeted interest groups.
I’m available to discuss topics including, but not limited to: mission-centered organizations as the new business model, purpose-driven leadership, social entrepreneurship, effective mission-focused marketing and business development, and impactful mentoring. Additional topics are available upon request.
Sample Presentation Topics
Make Your Business A Mission.
The presentation is to educate business leaders for accelerating companies focused on revenue and growth on why having a mission and higher purpose is what truly sets apart a great business from a good business. Participants will learn how to create a mission-centered business blueprint that moves them from surviving to thriving and as a result rallying stakeholders around their growth in a sustainable fashion.
Redefine ROI as a Conscious Business.
This talk addresses what a ROI means for mission-centered businesses that go beyond the traditional model of just focusing on short-term growth and making money. The audience will learn what effective performance metrics are and how to establish them specifically for their organization in a way that support its mission, while engaging and enrolling employees, vendors, customers and funders in the development and achievement process.
Personal Branding for Purpose-Driven Leaders.
The focus is to help leaders and emerging leaders identify their special qualities to help them breed success and create impact. Participants walk away with tools to develop their own personal mission statement, utilize social media to build their brand and learn how to leverage relationships/connections to maximize their purpose-driven personal brand.
Innovate and Influence as an Intrapreneur.
This presentation discusses how the fix that needs to take place within today’s corporate world can only be accomplished through individuals who are flexible, innovative, influential, risk-takers, resilient, proactive, self-motivate, idea generators, status quo challengers and determined. Therefore, companies need team members who show the entrepreneurial spirit to help facilitate true change within. Attendees will learn about the traits of an intrapreneur; how to develop skills to serve as organizational brand ambassadors; and how to impact organizational growth through becoming entrepreneurs on the job.
Made in USA as Your Mission.
The talk is geared toward businesses participating in the new movement to share the American story and further/revitalize Made in America products and services. Participants will learn how to effectively tell their story and let their mission do the selling, through defining what Made in the USA means for their company and how to build brand ambassadors to support their cause.
Social Entrepreneurship – the New Way to Business Innovation.
This is for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to go beyond the traditional corporate framework and use their business experience to do good in the world and act as change agents for their communities and the world at-large. The talk provides the tools and strategies to guide the process to start up a social enterprise, selecting collaborators and partners, as well as securing funding and implementing the business plan successfully.
Each of these presentation topics (additional topics available upon request) includes actionable strategies and/or audience challenges that can positively impact organizational growth and sustainability, as well as create culture change, if desired.

Inviting you to be a speaker for our Lectures in Entrepreneurship Course at Westminster College was a very significant draw for our learners and the public in Salt Lake City, UT. The response from your personal story and insights to creative and innovative leadership produced very rich, descriptive blog entries from our students. Students’ blogs described and commented upon your ability to evolve motivation and leadership traits in individuals who may not normally see themselves as leaders. We miss your continued presence and am confident others are benefiting from your guidance.
