Selecting the right marketing speaker for your conference or event is a tough job.
You already know that the best keynotes have a special talent for matching their expertise to audiences that can vary in size, experience levels and skill sets.
They also add an extra flair by delivering their messages in a way the bleeds passion and inspires the audience to use their lessons to take action.
I’ve spent the last 6 years delivering speeches and workshops to more than 250 audiences that have ranged in size from 20 professionals to well over 1000. My thought leading content and naturally energized delivery style have helped me to earn a reputation as one of the top rated marketing speakers in the Midwest.
The goal for my keynote speeches and interactive workshops is always the same — inspire the audience on the opportunities that lie before them and then give them the tools, frameworks and education that will help them take action.
