Selecting the right speaker for an event is not an easy task. I have been on the other side of the fence and know how challenging it can be to select one from countless highly accomplished and talented speakers.
What I offer is this: participants will remember my key messages and will make a sincere attempt to implement these messages in order to improve their personal and professional lives. In other words, most of the participants will be self-motivated to implement what they learn from my presentations.
The reason for this is because the fundamental premise of my talks and presentations is that in order is to achieve our goals, both personal and professional, we must first understand why we do what we do. My presentations on "why we do what we do" is anchored in proven research and studies on the human brain and human behavior and decision-making. This leads to Ah!ha! moments for participants. It shifts the focus from negative thinking about one's character flaws or weak willpower to the tricks that our brains play on us and what we can do to overcome them. It offers a new pathway to overcome our struggles and to achieve our goals.
I am humbled and inspired by the many moving testimonials that I have received. I hope I can be of service to you and your team.
