The Sun is Playing Peek-a-Boo
Transformative innovation often comes about from the random collision of unusual ideas and perspectives. As an industry, we are facing dire iatrogenic consequences if we continue to innovate with the same mindset by which we originally approached our problems. By challenging our basic assumptions, we can disrupt status-quo thinking and envision new realities designed around the human experience. Join me as I share some early insights from a forthcoming book that explores the habits and patterns of ‘unusual suspects’ who are successfully transforming industries by reimagining new worlds.
We’re Innovating. Now What?
Odds are you are reading this because you have been referred to me, seen me speak before, or discovered me via my website. The fact that you’re looking to inquire about my speaking services suggests you believe I will be a good fit with a good message that will resonate with your audience. But I don’t stop there. In advance of the event, I often dig into your core audience’s needs and custom tailor my talk to ensure everyone walks away inspired and smarter than when they first walked in.
TAILORED TALKS THAT RESONATE
Every talk is customized and relevant to meet your needs.
DELIVER UNUSUAL PERSPECTIVES
I use a storytelling approach to share one-of-a-kind ideas, concepts, and actionable lessons drawn from real life experiences.
I’M AFFABLE AND ALWAYS MAKE IT INTERACTIVE
I enjoy interacting with your audience before and after and will never rush out. I like to make it fun.
I GO ABOVE & BEYOND
I will help promote the event, participate in workshops, recommend other speakers, and much more. Your success is my success.
As you can probably tell, I’m not your usual speaker. My talks strike a balance between being inspirational, actionable, educational, and humorous. My presentations are highly visual and I loathe slides bloated with endless bullet point lists. I take a storytelling approach that draws upon my own unique personal and professional experiences to draw the audience in. While my style may be casual and approachable, my message is highly professional that leaves your audience with a renewed sense of possibilities.
My speaking philosophy:
Inspire through storytelling.
Be relevant through customization.
Engage with interaction.
Make it actionable with real examples.
Inject a sense of humor.
Typically I am given speaking slots that range between 20-90 minutes, inclusive of Q&A sessions. On occasion, in a typical TED-like fashion, I have delivered talks as short as 10 minutes that are punchy, concise, and powerful. I have also participated in talks that morph into a panel discussion or interactive workshops where I often assist with moderation and facilitation.
My standard speaking rate is $15,000 USD (commissionable for speaking bureaus)
However, like most speakers, my rate may vary depending on the ‘ask’, location, and time requirements. Get in touch and lets discuss your event needs. With some ingenuity, you never know what we can work out.
Absolutely! While most of my speaking gigs are typically from direct referrals, I do occasionally work with select speaker bureau agencies. In fact, I am currently listed with over 15 agencies throughout the world (not exclusive). You can access my public speaker bureau profile using the link below.

Although I am located in the Washington, DC Metro area, no place is too far. I love adventures and traveling to odd places. In fact, I will travel to almost any part of the globe. Of course, you will need to cover my travel and accommodations (business class for cross country or international flights, economy for all the rest).
Unlike many speakers, I have nothing to sell you. Nothing annoys me more than being ‘sold to’ by a speaker. What a turn off. I will NEVER do that.
My sole focus is to inspire and engage your audience. That’s it! Very simply, I succeed if you succeed as my benefit comes in the form of referrals. For that reason, I very rarely speak at pure networking events since those are best served for folks looking to drive more personal business.
