Professional Speaking & Coaching Services


The professional audience: higher expectations, greater needs.

Professional audiences demand relevancy in all presentations…skills, concepts, and action items that can be used immediately.

They also require a presenter with the skills to help the audience reach for more.

  • Memorable, 
  • Funny,
  • Interactive, 
  • And important skills for use tomorrow and beyond.

The job of the keynoter is to connect quickly with the audience and move them toward the topic, the theme, the reason for being together.

 

In like manner the breakout meetings are for deeper work, stronger connections, and skills to implement immediately.

Kevin has spoken to produce marketing executives; medical groups in Dubai, London, and across the United States; as well as to the United States Air Force, professional accreditation associations, and privately owned companies.

Each of course with their own culture, their own needs, their own goals…whether keynoting or workshoping, Kevin knows his job is to help them learn.

Physician Leadership


From outstanding physician to extraordinary physician executive.

Physician Leadership


From outstanding physician to extraordinary physician executive.

A safe, secure, easy-to-learn strategy to bring your physicians together for greater influence, patient safety, and improving quality.

Expand the mindset of your Physician Executives to make them more influential with non-physician executives as well as help them unify their doctors.

For the physician audience, there is but one requirement for a presenter…someone who understands how doctors think.

Kevin knows how they think and what they need to be considering in order to achieve their goals in today’s dynamic healthcare environment.

Kevin is faculty member of the American College of Physician Executives.

Healthcare Professionals


Make your team an extension of your best intention.

Healthcare Professionals


Make your team an extension of your best intention.

Influencing significant players in your world to secure important initiatives requires a set of skills that

  • Unifies differences
  • Teaches the real meaning of collaboration, consensus building, and cooperation across many specialties and technical populations
  • Delivers each time, every time

Safety, quality, and service are only as good as everyone on the team…and on the team itself. The team mindset for these important components comes from the individual’s commitment in action, to the goal of the group.

 

For the presenter the requirement is one of understanding:

  • Group dynamics
  • Pertinent challenges
  • Individual aspiration

In order to accomplish this, Kevin solicits confidential input from every attendee prior to the meeting. In this way, he isn’t giving last week’s talk simply because this is not last week’s audience. Knowing their wishes, their needs, and their recommendations from their own voices and emails is what makes each and every program targeted for each audience.

Leading Your Peers


Lead your peers from conflict to consensus to action. 

Leading Your Peers


Lead your peers from conflict to consensus to action. 

When voluntary cooperation is the only alternative, there are specific leadership skills that bring individuals together for real action.

When professionals bring their technical expertise to the group, leaders need to create an environment that affirms their strength and develops their needs.

Leading professionals is different; leading your former peers is challenging but not impossible.

Kevin has experience with a diverse audience group:

  • Pharmaceutical companies to milk producers
  • World class floral experts to world class physicians
  • From academic centers of influence to schools that influence children who are blind and visually impaired

Kevin knows how teams think and how to help their leadership help them think beyond.

Leaders of Technical Teams


Make your team an extension of your best intention.

Leaders of Technical Teams


Make your team an extension of your best intention.

The leader of technical teams has the complex responsibility that requires that:

  • You can deliver scientific information without fear of boring the audience.
  • You can facilitate a discussion where there are disagreements without fear.
  • You can become the memorable presenter, the one they need to come back and hear again and again.

There is a ‘science’ to presenting scientific and financial information that few understand.


There is an ‘art’ that few know how to pull off.

 

There is a ‘connection’ that the audience is desperate for and that is not apparent frequently enough.


The science, the art, and the connection are all skills you can learn.

Lead the discussion on your team.
Help them find the way to talk to one another.
Learn to listen strategically in order to lead better.

I need a speaker who will engage our group,
Who will help them come to their own conclusions,
Who will help them get to know one another.
