Featured Presentations

We hope you find this sampling collection of presentations provocative and potentially future impactful. Any of the collection can be tailored to fit meeting schedules from one-hour to a full day. They are carefully designed to cause change…change in beliefs in some cases and change in behaviors in others. You will find that each presentation contains “Laugh at ourselves humor” and at the same time, challenges our self-opinions.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss any aspect of the presentations.
