Frequently Asked Questions

I research your industry, your company, and your competition. The more I know about you and your audience, the better I can serve them.

When possible, I do phone interviews with audience members or others from your organization. (sometimes I incorporate their quotes into color visuals and/or handout materials).

I review your trade publications, blog articles, and social media presence.

You get handout materials that reflect the theme of your meeting.

Titles and subjects are customized to your event, your audience, and your results.

My customized presentation will be designed to fit your available time from 30 minutes to two days. Also, because the needs of any seminar or event can change, I am also experienced and flexible enough to adapt when my segment needs to be cut or expanded unexpectedly. I will do whatever I can to accommodate your needs.

The fact that I’ve addressed and worked with a wide range of businesses, for-profit and non-profit, is a big part of my value to your organization. We all know that every group is different and has their unique needs, but I have found that we also face many similar challenges. In my areas of expertise, I bring the best of “what works” from other industries to your group.

Many groups that hire me to do a keynote presentation also have me do a breakout or spouse session at the same event. This gets you a big discount on the second presentation and saves you travel and expenses. I will also help you design exciting convention openings and closings, even if you are on a bargain basement budget! Whenever possible, I can also create a customized pre or post event webinar to give you and your audience extra value.

If you give me a group that is alive, awake, sober and somewhat excited to be there, you will get a top-notch, effective presentation every time, or you’ll get your money back. I will assist you in room set-up, timing and logistical parameters to optimize the presentation.

I’m a serial entrepreneur, community leader, and business profit architect. Starting from scratch, I started my first business with a loan from my mother. I’ve started and run 7 companies. The first one was a complete failure, with the past 6 being successes – including my current brands! From main street to the boardroom, I’ve mentored and advised thousands of business owners and startups regarding community building, how to create products and programs, corporate sponsorship, launching an affiliate program, business strategy, monetizing an online community and more!

As a business profit architect and consultant, I’ve worked with range of companies from start-ups and non-profits to the Fortune 100. I’ve worked with and consulted brands such as BMW, DELL, Disney, Hilton, State Farm, Wells Fargo, and Zappos – to name a few!

I am also a Strategic Thinking Partner for community leaders, entrepreneurs, nonprofits and business owners, with the expertise to quickly get to the heart of complex issues, seeing solutions and helping to illuminate a path to forward progress.

I prefer to fly business or first class on Delta Airlines. You’ll never have to deal with meal charges, frills, or surprises!

I like to keep it family friendly. I love my nieces and nephews, so I use only clean, non-offensive humor that I could use in front of them or my parents. You will never be embarrassed.

My team and I will handle all the details of your event in a professional and timely manner and we’ll make every effort to keep expenses to a bare minimum. Unlike most speakers, YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED for my meals while I am on the road. Pretty cool, huh? You will never have any alcohol or extravagant expenses of any kind charged to your master account. When possible, AIRFARE WILL BE PRORATED FAIRLY between clients. You will find we are always courteous and very accessible. My team and I are here to serve you and we won’t ever forget it! We get to do what we love because of you! Please call or email when you are ready to plan your next great event.

I sure do! You get 50 copies of one of my best selling books, “Relationships Raise Money: A Guide to Corporate Sponsorship” or “Sponsorship for Influencers” with each engagement. These can be used as giveaways for the attendees, door prizes, sign-up premiums, or even as the centerpiece at your banquet or luncheon. These books will save you a small fortune on “throwaway” flowers and balloons and give your attendees a valuable business gift. If you want to buy more copies so everyone gets one, I give really large discounts for bulk purchases.

As soon as we work out the details and you engage me, I’ll begin my pre-program research by interviewing you briefly by phone, and then sending you a questionnaire to complete and return. I will ask for back issues of industry trade publications, newsletters, corporate reports, and a list of your group’s “movers and shakers” to be interviewed.
