Over the past
decade, I've been a keynote speaker, featured speaker, or roundtable facilitator at hundreds of events. My speaking
style is unique; it involves a very active engagement of the audience using a state of the art "audience response system."
Feedback after using this "ARS system" has been extremely positive.
Clients have included Institutional Investor, John Hancock, Marriott,
McKenzie Financial, Tramontina, Assante Wealth Management, Cobank, NRECA, the Steel Manufacturer's Association, the Metal
Services Center Institute, the National Human Resources Association, International Housewares Association, Emory & Henry
University, the Lima Chamber of Commerce, and the FBI.
The three major speech topics offered include:
Topic #1. Forecasting the U.S. and global
can be tailored to either investors or business executives. For investors, it includes a discussion of appropriate
money management strategies over the course of the stock market cycle. For business executive audiences, my forecast
similarly includes a discussion of appropriate business strategies over the course of the business cycle.
For both investors and business executives, the
most important part of my speech is to teach them to become their own economic forecasters. This approach is presented
in my book "Always a Winner”. For groups seeking a strong educational component for their audience, this “teach
you how to forecast” aspect of the speech is always a big hit.
Topic #2. Strategically Meeting the China Challenge
The foundation for this speech is my analysis
of U.S.-China relations in my book The Coming China Wars. In that book, I describe how the emergence of China is sparking a tremendous competition
globally for markets, natural resources, and political and military influence. For corporate audiences, I explain how
to conduct a proper risk assessment when considering offshoring production facilities to China. For companies facing
stiff Chinese competition, I also offer a suite of strategies to combat China's "weapons of mass production." Topic #3. What the Best MBAs Know
This presentation is based on my book "What the Best MBAs Know"; it is an executive-level overview of the MBA "toolbox." This presentation
is best conducted in a workshop format with the goal of providing executives and middle managers with a working overview
of how the key concepts and tools offered in business schools may be profitably applied in their own corporate
environment. The presentation is specifically tailored to the particular industry that I'm working with. More broadly, I work hard to tailor my remarks to the particular group I'm addressing rather than
simply giving a "canned speech." I generally limit my engagements to one or two a month so please
contact me as early as you can in your planning process. I can be reached at email@example.com or 949-357-9330. Thanks and I look forward to speaking
to your group.
