effective communication skills

Persuasion Video Previews

Here are some resources to introduce myself to your organization. Let's talk about your specific outcome at your earliest convenience.

Performance Videos

Here is a sample of a stage performance. This 40 minute video is an edit of a three hour persuasion program done for a group accounting practice managers and will give you a good demonstration of my presentation style. One of the video testimonials below (Ben Haskell of Warren Avertt) is from someone who attended this event and then had me in to speak to the partners at their firm.

There are some shorter videos below.


Here's twenty minutes of a workshop where I move 200 people around the room to help them discover their similarities and differences. While this isn't directly related to persuasion and sales, it demonstrates how I can work with a large room.



This is a quick interaction with someone I calll onto the stage for a demonstration.




Here's a video that shows a workshop participant making an important discovery. Learning comes from discovery, not telling.



Here's what some clients have had to say about my programs.
