I INSPIRE AUDIENCES TO MAKE CHANGE
What to expect:
ENERGY! Seriously. I'm the guy to put on first-thing in the morning or right after lunch, when you want to jolt your audience awake. In Des Moines, the founder of CiWeek called me a "raging animal." At the Aileron Summit in Ohio, I introduced myself by riding a bicycle through the crowd as Queen's Bicycle Race blasted. My talks are fun, funny, fast-paced, and inspiring.
And what am I talking about? Change.
As editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine and host of the popular history podcast Pessimists Archive, I'm a recognized authority on change—why people resist it, and the importance of embracing it. I'll inspire audiences to make change in their own business, or inspire employees to embrace and create change in their organizations.
