As a 30 year veteran in business, I have combined my experience in a variety of industries with my passions for leadership, history, music, the outdoors, and the environment to create a unique style of leadership (and have the bumps, bruises and scars to prove it). Drawing on the role models of my parents (mom was an author and speaker, dad was a minister and preacher), I have developed a casual, entertaining, educational and motivational style of creating a dialogue with groups from 5 to 1,000.

Companies, schools, churches, professional and service organizations in need of a speaker? I am available for keynote speeches, breakout sessions, or workshops. The topics I can cover are pretty much the same ones you see in my blogs: Leadership, History, Travel, Information Technology and the Environment.
