Speaking

A charismatic speaker, I use sincerity, humor, and storytelling to connect with audiences; education, leadership, management, marketing, and technology are my main topics. Be sure ask to about my signature speech, Superman: Manager of Steel or my latest idea, David Bowie: The Manager Who Fell to Earth. Below are academic and professional events at which I presented scholarly papers or gave speeches. If you would like me to speak at your event please contact me!
