Brilliant Presenter Program

Learn how to Impact, influence, and inspire any audience.

  • Are you looking to get ahead in your organization, launch a project, or get your ideas noticed ? 
  • Are you an entrepreneur who has (or wants to have) a new business idea, product or service?
  • Do you want to get more involved in your community or apply for the board of an organization or cause you care about?

You need to become an influencer.

I know what it's like to feel like you're capable of more but you're unsure of where to turn or what skill to develop next. I went from flunking most of my classes my freshman year in high school to building a successful executive career based on learning to present. I have since then forged a successful business around speaking and presenting. 

In today’s work economy, which relies more and more on autonomy and the automatic, honing your ability to influence human beings will put you in a league of your own—no matter what industry you are in, service you provide, product you make, scientific discovery you’re working on, or social issue you’re championing. 

No matter who you are, speaking is the new marketing. 

I don’t mean speaking in front of a room full of people. I mean: how do you establish your presence? One-to-one, one-to-ten, one-to-many. Speaking is about giving you the tools to communicate effectively in a fast-paced world where you have to be clear, concise, and consistent with the message that you need to convey.

 
Now, you can improve your value by 50 percent just by learning communication skills—public speaking.
— Warren Buffet

When all things are the same, who gets ahead? The communicators. The pendulum swings in the direction of a person who can hold a conversation, think on their feet, and speak with examples, stories, and relevant data that shows their visionary leadership. Decisions go in favor of the brilliant idea/thought/position marketers—the great speakers—for better or worse.

I know FIRSTHAND how you can impact, influence, and inspire ANY audience to give yourself the edge you need to break into a new season of success.

The Brilliant Presenter Program is the secret playbook I've developed to influence audiences over the past 40 years. As a former sales executive and an award-winning speaker who has built an entire company around developing content and presenting to audiences, I have designed and tested specific frameworks that I know really work in the marketplace. Included in this program are the approaches I ACTUALLY use when I design and deliver presentations for Microsoft, Google, Cisco, Toyota and many, many other clients who come back to me time and time again.

This isn't a program based in research and theory--it's what I KNOW. I am not a weekend warrior--I have built a successful company learning and teaching how any individual can become a Brilliant Presenter to catapult your career, your life, or your business to the next level.

I'll teach you my specific, custom-developed frameworks and tools to:

  • Overcome your fear of speaking in front of others
  • Emotionally connect with any audience
  • Design, develop, and deliver effortless presentations 
  • Understand different learning styles
  • And much, much, more...

with the right framework and coach, you'll be able to:

  • Craft a message that will emotionally CONNECT with your audience -- even if that audience is just one person.
  • Create a story using a PROVEN framework (Hint: it's easy as C.A.K.E.).
  • Never worry about forgetting what you're going to say or fret over what to do with your body while presenting.
  • Pair visuals with your message that will drive toward (not distract) your audience.
  • Never spend time driving across town to meet with a group in an artificial speaking environment that is disconnected from what your needs right here, right now.
  • Become an INFLUENCER by building and communicating your ideas to impact and inspire whoever is listening.
  • Confidently face any Q&A from your audience or listener

Why I created this program...

Fifteen years ago, when I was working as Sales Director for the Disney Institute, I took a leap of faith. I quit my job, cashed in my 401K, took out a line of credit on the house, and turned downed four lucrative job offers to become a full-time, professional speaker.

It was the best decision I ever made, but it wasn’t all roses at the beginning.

One day I looked with horror at my future bookings for speaking engagements and saw that for a solid 30-day period, there were none. The calendar was empty! And there were only drips of business in the coming months.

I crossed and uncrossed my fingers a lot. I found myself opening and shutting the refrigerator door even more. Yet it wasn’t food I was hungry for. My stomach wasn’t what was empty; it was my soul. I was literally stuck in neutral, going nowhere fast. 

I thought about what brought me from the ghetto of Buffalo, New York, up the ranks at Disney, and into my own business to begin with.

Here’s what I realized: speaking is the new marketing. 

In a world of algorithms, automation, and autonomous cars, it’s imperative to stand head and shoulders above the noise by presenting your thought leadership and your point of view. 

I got laser-focused. I focused on being a truly brilliant presenter: in writing, on stage, and online.  I stopped driving in circles or in many directions all at once. As a direct result of my shifting, my company has grown and impacted a greater number of clients and a wider reading audience

I am now able to dedicate my time to pouring my learning and experience into others all over the world, and I have loved absolutely every single moment of it.

Within the last 15 years, I’ve presented to over 1600 companies in 45 countries. I’ve worked with Microsoft, Cisco, Google, Toyota, and the list goes on. Every time I go to one of these organizations, I learn something new about their culture and their cultural needs, and I get better at what I do.

What is so amazing about this experience is that 40 years later, I now get to share the insights that I have gained through trial and error, through failure, and through experiencing tremendous success.

I get your questions about presenting and requests for mentorship all the time, and I finally found a way to teach you everything I know. 

  • Are you a person who is looking to get ahead in your organization, push a project forward, or get an idea noticed?
  • Are you an entrepreneur who has (or wants to have) a new product or service?
  • Do you want to get more involved in your community or apply for the board of an organization or cause you care about?

I created this program to equip you with specific tools and techniques that will show you how to use YOUR voice, your brilliance, your stories, and your skills, to present your brand in a fresh new way so that you can impact, inspire, and influence any audience.
