Speaking

My approach to speaking

My goal as a speaker is to inspire and motivate audiences to activate their potential. I share stories, case studies, and evidence-based research to animate what’s possible within organizations. My interactive style helps participants deepen their insights, share and learn from each other and leave with new strategies for growth and action. 

My speaking topics include leadership, conflict engagement, storytelling and coaching. I can customize existing or new programs for your organizational needs.

Speaking Testimonials

"Doug’s presentation on Mindful Leadership: Managing Stress and Taking Action was an invaluable addition to the conference. His efforts contributed directly toward providing cost effective training opportunities. His high degree of quality, professionalism and flexibility to support us with our training mission is most appreciated.”
