What You Can Expect

    • EXCELLENCE = Prompt, professional replies to your phone calls and email messages.
    • PREPARATION = A personal phone consultation with me prior to your event, so I can better understand how I can best serve you and your audience.
    • PARTNERSHIP = An announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels. (This assumes that your event is open to the public and you want additional visibility for it.)
    • RESULTS = A professionally prepared, dynamically delivered presentation focused on achieving the outcomes you want with your audience.
    • TAKEAWAYS = A custom resource page, exclusively created for your attendees. It will include the slides I used in the presentation, along with links to books, articles, and other resources I believe will be helpful.
    • SATISFACTION = A quick follow-up communication after the event with me, to make sure I met your expectations. (I also want to know how you think I can improve.)

A Little Bit About Me

I have been speaking publicly for more than 15 years. I have also appeared on more than a dozen television shows and more than 100 syndicated and local radio shows.

Feature interview on the on internationally syndicated 700 CLUB, one of the longest running television
programs in broadcast history.

I left my day job to pursue my dream job – Igniting Souls. Through writing, speaking, and coaching, I help individuals and organizations clarify who they are, why they are here, and where they should invest their time and energy.

I struggled finding my own distinct voice and passion. As a young man, I suffered from severe stuttering, depression, and self-injury. Today a transformed man, I invest my time helping others become Souls on Fire.

Speaking on leadership to over 100 nations.

I am the founder of Redeem the Day, which serves the business community, and Igniting Souls, which serves the non-profit community. I have written six books and collaborated, co-written, and ghostwritten dozens more. I’m blessed with an amazing business partner David Banderhorst and an amazing international team.

I have been happily married to my wife and Truth Teller, Kelly for fourteen years. We have 3 children and live outside Columbus, OH. In my free time, I enjoy reading, exercising, and disc golf.

With my builder Chet Scott, founder of Built to Lead., one of the strongest people I know.

A Few of My Clients

My Training

Besides earning a Doctorate in Transformational Leadership, I’ve been trained by the world’s very best communicators, leaders, and experts. I’m committed to personal development in all areas (spiritually, emotionally, physically, and mentally).

Besides, a rich education in the classroom and the marketplace, I consider my failures some of my best teachers. And because I’m constantly trying new things, I fail often and grow continuously.
