I am passionate about human potential
I spent the first 25 years of my working life as a fashion and advertising photographer and as a father of five children.
I met so many people with tremendous potential but without any people skills – they were like roses with rubber bands wrapped around them – and they’d never blossom until someone took off that rubber band.
I made up my mind to be that person so I took a risk and traded in my cameras for a laptop. Before long I was visiting schools showing kids how to ace interviews and get jobs. From there it grew fast and within 6 months I was invited to be the kick-off speaker at the AT&T national convention. That event kick-started my new career as a speaker and author.
Today I speak to audiences all over the world and my books have been translated into more than 30 languages.
More than 600 corporations, thousands of small businesses, and six of the world’s leading business schools have contacted me to rally and inspire their staff to connect, communicate and articulate their business ideas.
I live on a farm with my wife Wendy, the most exciting person I’ve ever met. And I still go into schools.
