Receive a Free Gift: 25 Extravagant Listening Tips for Leaders


You want to create an impactful event with the right speaker who will engage your audience, share meaningful and actionable insight, and inspire them with a relatable message so they feel empowered to take next steps.

The success of your event is directly related to the quality of the speakers. I know what it’s like. As a leadership development coach and facilitator, I’ve planned over 100 events for high-level leaders and hired several speakers for these events in addition to presenting at many of these and other events myself.

What You Can Expect


A Little About Me

Speaking to audiences is a humbling privilege, an honored trust for me. Whether large or small, corporate or non-profit, CEOs, employees, or difference-makers on a mission, your audience matters to me because I’m passionate about making a positive impact in people’s lives! I’ve spoken at conferences, company meetings, association gatherings, CEO forums, leadership groups, retreats, schools, universities, and churches. I’ve presented in the desert, and near 10,000 ft. elevation. I’ve also given training on three continents. I got my start in the 4th grade when I was the narrator in a school play. I’m pretty flexible!

I’m also a leadership coach. Since 2004, I’ve worked 1-to-1 with over 150 CEOs, business owners, and executives, helping them build value in their organization and multiply their capacity for being trusted leaders who make a positive impact. I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly in leadership and I love helping people stretch from good to great in their role as leaders.

In addition to leading a $350M technical sales team at a Fortune 150 company, I earned entrepreneurial scar tissue by co-founding a software venture, acquiring a retail business, and starting a business brokerage.

I had the privilege of playing on the U.S. National Team and two NCAA Championship water polo teams while earning degrees at Stanford University. I’ve been married to my college sweetheart, Julianne, since 1993 and we live near Denver, Colorado and have two teenage children. I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, investing time with family, and making mango salsa.
