What Does He Speak About?

In his breakout TEDx Talk - "What Surfing Taught Me About Leadership" - he shared the secret of how to drive business results through a human-centric approach to leadership by unleashing potential in those you lead. He told his remarkable story about how learning to surf was a breakthrough for him in his personal battle of relentless bullying and deep insecurities because of a significant, lifelong stutter. Today he uses that experience and two decades of leadership experience in the trenches working with and in organizations of all sizes. From family run businesses, to tech startups, to global consulting firms like Accenture, he developed four leadership necessities that unleash potential and unlock the human spirit that lead to flourishing.

Signature Talks

I am a TEDx, Motivational Speaker focused on transformational leadership for 21st Century Leaders. I leave the audience feeling uplifted and inspired to unleash potential in themselves and in those they lead so their teams and organizations can flourish: Trust + Potential + Deep Purpose = Growth. The importance of helping others see their potential isn’t revolutionary, but it is a human reality that drives exponential growth. 


Executive Coaching

Your success is my success. I want you to be guided by a distinct mission and vision. It is there and only there you can find the answer. Friedrich Nietzsche once noted, "He whose life has a WHY can bear almost any how." My aim is to serve you in self-discovery and equip you so that you can unleash your talents and your team’s potential.


Group Workshops

What keeps us engaged in the work we do and inspired and motivated by the leaders we follow? If you think it’s things like incentives, you’re not alone, but according to research that’s not the case. Unprecedented data shows that disengagement and indifference in the workplace is at an all time high, and the reason is that leaders don’t know how to inspire their teams to realize their potential. 

An event is the best way to accelerate performance, engagement, and connectivity. Let's work together to make your next event a huge success!
