I write about the changing nature of the leadership conversation, and how communication creates the connections that matter. Recognized as the U.S. National Elevator Pitch champion, I'm an international coach to businesses and entrepreneurs around the globe. I've helped raise over $100 Million in capital, launching dozens of businesses and coaching my clients onto Shark Tank, Dragons Den and Shark Tank - Australia. As a keynote speaker, my clients include Fortune 500 giants, international non-profits, technology, real estate, financial institutions and hundreds of high-growth businesses worldwide. I work with US NAVY SEALs and regularly speak at colleges like Texas A&M, Rice, TCU, University of Wisconsin and others. The publisher of seven books, my latest is called Leadership Language (Wiley) - the follow-up to the international best-seller, The NEW Elevator Pitch.
