Over the decades that I have performed keynotes and presentations, I have experienced the difference between those that do and those that do not. I have seen renowned experts crumble under pressure and witnessed unknown amateurs rise to the occasion.
Yes, I take my craft as seriously as I do the privilege to perform. My speaking goes beyond the material; from studying rhetoric to learning stage management and analyzing audience behavior, I do my very utmost to ensure that I can be my best self on the day when it matters most to you.
In other words, unless you represent a charity or a university, I will not speak for free and – to be blunt – there is no point in asking me to.
For your money, you get a sure thing: a world-class professional speaker with extensive international big stage and large corporation experience.
And, yes, there are less expensive speakers. There are also thinner steaks, slower cars, and larger risks.
