How I Can Help Make Your Event a Success
I understand the challenge of finding just the right speaker for your event. The success of an event is heavily dependent upon the quality of the speaker. You need to make sure their topic and style is a match for your audience and it takes time to do your research.
I’ve done my best to make it easy for you to find the information you need to make the best decision possible. My sweet spot is speaking to purpose-driven leaders who want to create a life of success and significance beyond the bottom line. I want to be part of helping leaders grow companies to have a big impact, achieve growth, do cool things and be rated as the best places to work.
Thanks for stopping by and for considering me. I am honored.

- Prompt, professional replies to your phone calls and email messages.

A Little Bit About Me
I have authored two books, Doing the Difficult and Jailbreak Leadership, and am a leading authority on the topics of leading business for exceptional value-driven growth, strategic execution, change management, business ministry and purpose-driven leadership. I love speaking and having the opportunity to mobilize possibilities and inspire transformation in my audiences.
I spent 20 years in Corporate America, and have been a serial entrepreneur since 2000. I am the founder and partner of several consulting companies and a popular keynote speaker for corporations, nonprofits, government agencies and business leaders bringing passion, energy and expert knowledge to everyone seeking to go to the next level.
Using the TED talk format, I offer keynotes, half day seminars and corporate trainings. If you want your audience to walk away inspired, prepared and confident to move forward, then we could be a great match.
Personally, my amazing wife, Caryn and I enjoy our life at the beach in San Diego with Telly, our labradoodle. In my free time, I enjoy walking on the beach, chasing down a good movie and competitive sailing.
My Most Requested Topics
My popular Jailbreak Leadership for leaders, The Business Case for Purpose for organizations looking to maximize growth and impact in the new Meaning Economy, and the unique Different Not Better talk for Christian business leaders are fun, interactive, high energy and transformative.
Keep in mind that I can present these as a keynote or a workshop. Also, I have a half-day, and in some cases, full-day seminar version, depending on your needs.
THE BUSINESS CASE FOR PURPOSE
The Success Formula in Today’s Cause Economy
When people talk about you or your company, what stories do they tell? How would you or your team answer this question: “What’s the purpose of your organization?” If the answer is primarily to make a profit, statistics say you are destined for mediocrity. As Peter Drucker famously said, “Profit is not the purpose of a business, rather the test of its validity.”
3 Steps for Living and Leading with Meaning and Impact
Sometimes as a leader, you do not even realize you are in prison. You are so busy keeping your head down trying to survive the current circumstances that the thought of being on the “outside” does not even occur to you. Since the onus of success and failure of the organization falls squarely on your shoulders, the best chance of the organization breaking out and going big will simply have to start with you.
DIFFERENT, NOT BETTER
Connecting Sunday to Monday
Imagine this conversation at the pearly gates: “Good job on the profitable business you led. But can you explain how those 30 employees, 15 vendors and 75 customers that I gave you never knew you were a person of faith?” Uh-oh. “You mean leading the business meant more than just being a little better than the competition?”
