Upcoming Events & Speaking Engagements

Keynote Speaker

Over 25 years, I have enjoyed the pleasure of using my extensive experience in addressing national and international audiences in over 40 nations: Slovakia, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Germany, India, Cuba, South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, and Latin America.

I speak to both large and small audiences providing dynamic and challenging messages, which inspire tangible actions leading to dramatic turnarounds.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Far-reaching and intellectually stimulating messages aimed at fostering social and organizational responsibility.
  • Prompt, contract-honoring, and professional attention to your needs and requests.
  • A spiritually transforming message that cuts across denominations, race, level of education, and gender barriers. I try to speak in a way that can benefit everyone.
