He has experience interviewing for radio, live TV and video productions; has spoken at both internal corporate and external trade association events; writes articles and blog posts for various media publications; and does his part to keep the Internet spinning by tweeting @BizWellDone.
Paul focuses on engaging live audiences with thoughtful, humorous and practical insights into the specific challenges they face… and how to overcome them. He mixes stories and concepts to keep their attention and to bring the message home.
Paul also goes beyond the cookie cutter approach. He prepares for specific audiences by connecting with key influencers and representative audience members in advance, in order to gauge their perspective on the topic and hone the presentation to hit them where they live.
While he can craft a presentation specific to a program or audience, he has four programs available on demand (with target audience):
- 8 Blocks: The Critical Realities for Building or Growing Any Business (Executive, Middle Management)
- Every Employee An Entrepreneur (builds on 8 Blocks, with three tracks: Executive, Middle Management and Worker Bee)
- Refining The Sales Process For Growth (two tracks: Executive and Sales Team)
- A Practical Approach To Entering Emerging Markets (Executive)
