Speaking Engagements

Why I’m the ideal speaker for your next event.

Imagine the real life wisdom your audience can learn from a strengths coach who has facilitated more than 27,000 sessions and spoken to more than 75+ organizations in the U.S., China, Dubai, Israel, and Afghanistan.
I’ve been approved as a Vistage Speaker, certified as an Achieve Global facilitator, earned Toastmasters International highest honor of Distinguished Toastmaster, and been a long time member of the National Speakers Association.  I have also performed many TV interviews along the way and hosted my own radio show.
I hold a masters degree in counseling psychology and have taught Psychology in Modern Life and General Psychology as a professor for six years.


More important, I’m a spokesperson and leader in the strengths movement.

I am a master coach who works with other coaches to help grow their business, author of Amazon #1 Best Seller, Selling Strengths: A Little Book for Executive and Life Coaches About Using Your Strengths to Get Paying Clients, and the very first Gallup Certified Strengths Coach in the world. I’ve contributed to the Gallup Coaches Playbook blog, and been interviewed twice on Gallup’s Called to Coach program. See the second Called to Coach video here.


If you want to transform lives and cultivate a strengths-based culture within your group or organization, I encourage you to invite me to speak at your next event. My keynotes and workshops are about transformational learning, about ways to drive performance by using individual talents and strengths.


Did you know that some 11 million people from around the world have taken the StrengthsFinder assessment first outlined in Donald Clifton and Marcus Buckingham’s breakthrough book, Now, Discover Your Strengths. The assessment identifies an individual’s top five strengths, but that’s only the first step. The challenge for most people is applying those strengths in a way that generates tangible results, be they personal or professional.
Here’s the big takeaway for businesses. When an organization can get employees to use their strengths on a routine basis, say the better part of each day, those employees have a more direct impact on the organization’s bottom line.


It gets better. Gallup research has proven that employees who are routinely getting feedback on their strengths are 


  • 6 times more engaged on the job,
  • 7.8% more productive,
  • 8.9% more profitable, and
  • 3 times likely to report a higher quality of life.


If your business or organization can benefit from fully engaged employees, a boost in productivity, and an increase in profitability then give me a call at 903-819-0301 or contact me to schedule a strengths keynote speech or workshop today.
