His engaging and playful approach brings out the best in his interview subjects, including recognizable names such as Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Salman Rushdie and Gary Vaynerchuk.

Every Conversation Counts: How To Build Extraordinary Relationships

Long before the year of social distancing, loneliness was a pandemic in our society. In an age of polarization, disconnection, and shallow substitutes for real relationships, every professional needs to know how to build and maintain genuine relationships with clients and colleagues alike. Audiences will leave this keynote with “Five Habits of Human Connection” that offer practical tools to combat isolation and build deeper relationships.

With years of experience interviewing established leaders in business, entertainment and innovation, audiences will learn how to:

  • Spark real, authentic conversations to make meaningful connections, personally and professionally.
  • Earn trust and create new business, as you listen without distraction and make your small talk bigger.
  • De-escalate conflict and collaborate effectively by leading with assertive empathy.
  • Craft and tell compelling stories that will motivate your audience to take action.
  • Explore the questions that create breakthrough moments in any conversation.

This engaging experience is a candid and far-ranging look at how creative conversations can help you reinvent yourself, re-energize your brand, and further develop your business.


How To Elevate Your (Virtual) Speaking Impact And Influence

Every professional today needs to know how to deliver a virtual presentation with confidence, clarity, and authentic impact. Presenting virtually requires even greater attention to tone, delivery, and audience engagement than the in-person equivalent. This keynote draws on the “Five Habits of Human Connection” to give professionals the tools to captivate, engage and motivate their audiences to act now on their message.

Audiences Takeaways:

  • Learn the critical structure for highly effective virtual presentations.
  • Understand the Relationship-First Model to create new business.
  • Create authentic engagement online consistently.
  • Project confidence on camera to captivate your audience.
  • Craft compelling stories that persuade your audience to take action.

 

Every Conversation Counts: Business And Relationship Building In The Virtual World

This year has proved definitively that, while we can create a virtual equivalent to almost any in-person activity, that shift always involves some kind of loss. In a virtual environment, connections are harder to establish and easier to damage. This keynote will explore the ‘Five Habits of Human Connection’, offering audiences practical tools to build better relationships, create new business with clients and customers, and engage teams in a virtual world.
