How I Work

Below are just some of the things I will do to help ensure that my presentation for you will be a success:

Ahead of Time

  • Interview you (the meeting organizer) on your goals for the talk and the needs of the audience.
  • With your permission, interview up to three audience members or other interested parties of your choosing on their goals and needs for the presentation.
  • Create a customized presentation with fresh, interesting insights and anecdotes that will speak to the specific needs and situation of your audience.
  • Promptly provide all needed information, such as a bio and head shot.
  • Confirm all arrangements.

The Week Before

  • Re-confirm all arrangements.
  • If desired, review presentation and handout(s).

On the Day of the Event

  • Arrive early.
  • Deliver an excellent, high-energy, thought-provoking presentation.
  • Encourage audience questions and participation.
  • Provide a genuinely useful handout customized with your meeting's information.
  • Never turn my presentation into a sales pitch.
  • Only offer mailing list signups and products for sale with your prior approval.
  • Finish within my allotted time.
  • Stay around for private conversations with audience members.

Following the Event

  • Be available to audience members who contact me with questions or comments.
  • Send a follow-up email to all audience members (only with your prior approval).
  • Welcome your feedback on my work.
  • Promptly submit invoices and receipts.


  • Go the extra mile.
  • Be as easy as possible to work with.
  • Communicate lavishly, and be easy to reach.
  • Be forthcoming and truthful.
  • Follow up and follow through.
