Speaking

As the CEO/Partner/Business Owner or Top Executive of a small or middle-market company, it is important for both you and your employees to understand how “Social Media” will dramatically change your business TODAY and into the FUTURE.

I have spoken to thousands of Leaders from almost every industry, giving over 300 speeches in the past 4 years – all with the intent of “waking them up” to the opportunities that exist when companies embrace and use Social Media correctly.  But it’s more than just awareness.  I focus on both the Strategic as well as the Execution level of what top executives need to know to take advantage of this powerful new media.  Being a “business man” with a background in Strategy and Customer Experiences, I bring a unique set of skills that puts it in “CEO language” so they “get it” and can understand how they can use it.

I offer several venues, one I hope is right for you and your organization.
