Any successful event has to build on yesterday with an eye to the future.  Your personal success as a meeting planner depends on our best performance right now. 

We have experienced all facets of meetings and events from planner to presenter to attendee. This gives us certain unique insights into the conference planning process and how we can really help you meet your goals.  Although we do tailor presentations for the audience, we stick with what we know and we won't claim we can "speak on any topic" just to get a slot.

We prefer to speak "with" people, not at people.  We believe interactive learning environments contribute greatly to understanding and retention. Sharing, interactivity and energy are hallmarks of our presentation styles. We do like using music, video and innovative room sets whenever possible. We typically move around the room.

We have booked (and seen) enough speakers to be able to sincerely promise the following: we will read, sign AND return the speaker agreement; we will help you frame our session/keynote appropriately; we will help you co-promote your event if appropriate; we will check in with you when we get onsite; we will not ambush you with large last minute A/V requests; we will show up on time for tech run; we will do our level best not to bore the audience and we swear - we will not stand in one place, back to the audience, reading from a wordy slide.
