Thanks for visiting my speaking page. Here, you’ll find out more about me, my most-requested speaking topics, my schedule, and how to book me.

As a former marketing director and musician (in a former life), I understand the importance of captivating an audience. And like you, I’ve been on the receiving end of a message and felt bored, distracted, and even frustrated.

That’s why I don’t take words for granted. As a communicator, I am especially aware of the need for speakers to connect with an audience and leave them with practical takeaways.

You have a big choice ahead of you; I hope this page helps you make it. I appreciate you taking the time to consider me for your event.

I’m represented by the BrightSight Group. For more information visit my page here.

A little more about me

As an author, blogger, and speaker, I believe great ideas can change the world.

After working in the nonprofit sector as a marketing and communications director, I now write and speak full-time in hopes of inspiring others to action through the power of communication.

An avid user of social media since 2006, I’ve trained tens of thousands of communicators to tell their stories online. Through my blog, online courses, and live events, I challenge people to make their messages matter and help them connect with their audiences.

I speak for a variety of audiences, including businesses, schools, conferences, churches, and nonprofit organizations. My speaking topics vary from writing and marketing to leadership and finding your purpose in life.

In 2011, 2012, and 2014, my blog was voted one of the “Top 10 Blogs on Writing” by WritetoDone.com, and my writing has been featured on some of the most popular blogs on the Internet, including Copyblogger, Problogger, and Zen Habits (voted by TIME Magazine as one of the top 50 websites of 2008).

I am the best-selling author of four books, including my most recent The Art of Work: A Proven Path to Discovering What You Were Meant to Do, which was a USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly, and Washington Post best seller.
