Need a great speaker?

I regularly speak about marketing, branding, communication, and technology to audiences at conferences, businesses, and universities.

Does your team struggle with communicating what matters? You’re not alone.
I’ve found that every organization, no matter how shiny of a logo, struggles when it comes to answering a simple question: What do you do, and why should I care?
If you can answer this question, everything else gets easier – and I can empower your team to get there.
In big rooms and on small screens, I’ve spoken for thousands of professionals and taught thousands more students. Will you be next?

Simply Put: The Science of Communicating with Clarity

30-60 Minutes
In-Person or Virtual
Books Available

Based on my award-winning book, this flagship keynote answers a fundamental question: why do some messages work when others fall flat? Why do some marketing campaigns succeed when others don’t? Why do some emails and presentations move the needle when others get ignored?

In this high-energy talk, I break down the secret framework used by the world’s best communicators and then empower the audience with tools that can make everybody a clearer and more effective communicator.  Attendees will leave this science-backed keynote prepared to cut through the noise and communicate their ideas more persuasively.

This keynote is designed for a general business or leadership audience, but is particularly useful for marketing, sales, customer service, advocacy, and product teams – and it can be customized for your unique needs.
