I have developed a unique style, and work to capture my audience’s attention. With a one-of-a-kind technique and masterful authority of my work, time and again I have continued to receive high accolades from audiences as one of the most dynamic and compelling speakers of our time.

I present communications topics on cruises lines for their on board entertainment programs.
I have been speaking since 1992 when my mentor took me to a Lion’s Club meeting and then informed methat I was the guest speaker. Rather than disappoint my mentor, I took the podium even though I don’t remember a word I spoke. Within a year of speaking at various service organizations, I received a great compliment. One of the attendees had seen me six months before and told me “If I hadn’t heard you speak I would have had to give up my business and take a job.”
From that point on I was hooked. I believe it is an amazing privilege to be able to affect people in a positive nature through public speaking.
I have more than 20 years experience working in the corporate environment. My sales skills style led to more than 6 years awards as one of the top ten out of the 300 national sales consultants in a Fortune firm. I have provided training in most of the Fortune firms in the Bay Area and western states including Bechtel, Chevron, Hewlett Packard, GE, Varian, Borden, Watkins-Johnson, Apex, Tab Products, Century 21, Uniglobe Franchise, Macaroni Bar & Grill, Associated Grocers, Boeing, Bayer and Skaggs to name a few.
