You work really hard to give your audience the best. You want to give them meaningful content that isn’t just information on a bunch of PowerPoint slides. You want them to learn, laugh, and be inspired.

And you put your own reputation on the line to connect all those dots for those you serve.

That often means having to trust someone you don’t know well to keynote or provide workshops for your events. And that can be risky and uncomfortable at times:

Will they respect and serve your audience with great content and delivery? Will they be easy to work with or a real pain? Will you be proud to have booked them or wishing you could hide…in a cave…on a different continent?

I’d love the chance to make your job a little easier.

I’ve had the privilege of speaking to audiences of 50 to 5000 at colleges, conferences, retreats, churches, and corporate events around the world.

I’ve also gotten to share the stage with some of the most respected communicators in the business, including Bob GoffFrancis ChanJosh Shipp, and John Ortberg.

Having personally designed and led more than 2000 events, I know exactly what connects with people, what motivates them, and what details are required to take an event from good to great

So from the speaking content to the Q&A to the aesthetics and flow of the event, I want to be a partner you can trust to help guarantee success for you and your audience.
