Actionable insights your audience needs to realize increased engagement, relevance, and growth

You Don’t Have to Accept Decline

For far too long, declines in membership and employee engagement have just been accepted as irreversible norms. It’s been believed there is no way to engage people and spur growth in a time of widespread disruption.

But I have proven there is another way.

By booking me to speak at your event, I will inspire your audience to approach team and community-building in radical, new ways.

I’ve Never Heard This Before

I have been named a Talent Economy influencer and referred to as a “social equality expert” and “wake-up call”.

When organizations started experiencing considerable disengagement and decline and couldn’t identify why, I dedicated myself to finding the answers.

From pop culture to brain development and demographics, I research how people engage and what influences the decision to engage. And as a futurist, I understand clearly who and what is coming next and what organizations need to do now to prepare.

Audiences rave about my ability to deliver thought-provoking, game-changing keynotes. The most common feedback we hear after I present is “I’ve never heard this before,” and “I never thought of it that way!

Imagine if within
60-minutes you could:


  • Identify the hurdles preventing your organization from engaging people;
  • Rethink your response to change and make room for collaboration and innovation; and
  • Inspire your team to create a people-first, future-focused value proposition and culture.
