My Most Requested Speaking Topics:

The Spiral Business Development Workshop

So many entrepreneurs expect their business development to be a straightforward, linear process. Sales, marketing, and business “experts” often exacerbate this perception by offering a step-by-step system as a clear path to success. When these prescriptive systems don’t work, you are left feeling stuck, frustrated, and discouraged.

Instead, learn how to embrace the cyclical, organic nature of growth. Harness the power of iteration to generate unstoppable moment and to give the business development process structure while maintaining flexibility and sustainability.

The Spiral Business Development approach is based on proven engineering design practice used to develop the most cutting edge technologies on the planet. Put it to work for your business to jump start your confidence, focus, and clarity.

In this 60-minute presentation you’ll learn:

  • ​How to use a proven design paradigm to move their business forward
  • The anatomy of a cohesive business vision
  • Three simple keys to powerful business strategy
  • A structured process to build and test product and service offerings while generating revenue immediately

From Rocket Scientist to Vision Architect

I was living the dream: designing, building, and flying spacecraft. It was a dream that I had from the age of 12 onward. So why did I feel stuck and unhappy?

In this talk, I share my story of personal revolution and how I leveled up my commitment to live in alignment with my highest values. I made the shift from thinking of my personal and professional development as a long, straight, predictable path, to one of evolution, exploration, and constant growth. And it’s all structured around the framwork of a massive career shift from aerospace engineering to entrepreneurship coaching.

The key messages are:

  • Overcome fear and resistance to live a life in line with your values
  • Allow your personal vision to be iterative and to evolve
  • You are not defined by your job title; instead, your most powerful gifts are useful in many different subject areas.

Life Integration with the Atomic Self Paradigm

Does work/life balance seem like a dream you can’t ever quite achieve? Instead of trying to find an elusive and static state of “balance” between two arbitrarily separated categories, think in terms of life integration – bringing your own unique energy as an individual into every relationship in your life, including – but certainly not limited to – the workplace.

We’ll dive deep into this mindset shift using a simple, yet powerful, visual tool: the Atomic Self Paradigm.

The Atomic Self uses a simple atomic model to help participants gain a deep and current understanding of themselves as individual human beings, including what they need to thrive, their core values, and how they want to make an impact in their relationships with people and the world. This self-knowledge provides a constant anchor point, a home base to return to when external demands vie for attention, time, and energy. By possessing a deep, current knowledge of the self, we can get the most “bang for our buck” when prioritizing our own activities from self care to family life to work to community contribution. We focus on who we ARE and want to BE to make the DOing have more impact.

This talk brings in concepts from basic chemistry and physics, as well as from quantum mechanics, providing analogies and imagery that reinforce the esoteric concepts of self-discovery. It provides a framework to perform deep self analysis, then builds an actionable plan to handle roadblocks and create forward momentum in the desired direction.

The audience will leave with:

  • A revolutionary visual model to help them prioritize their self-care and support their external relationships
  • A fun new perspective on personal development based on chemistry and physics
  • A structured method to reevaluate the disparate parts of life and bring them together into a cohesive whole
