Finding the right person to speak at your event can be difficult.



Organizers and event planners must deliver real value to attendees. You don’t want boring speakers droning on about themselves. While big ideas are nice, what you want is the audience to say to themselves,


“That was awesome, I can’t wait to try it this out.”

01. Dynamic

My talks are engaging and active. If you’re looking for a boring speaker that will keep your audience glued to your phones, look somewhere else.

02. Professional

While my talks are fun and draw lots of laughs, they’re also on professional topics that your audience wants to hear about.

03. Valuable

It’s not enough for a speaker to be fun. My talks ensure that the audience learns something valuable while they’re enjoying themselves.
