Denver, CO

Tell us about yourself; who are you and what do you do for fun?

I love the NFL, skiing, fine food and wine, horse racing, live music, Maine Coon cats, and global travel.

What got you into speaking? Is it what you expected?

I’ve wanted to be a professional speaker since I took an Oral Speaking class in college in 1986. Getting started (lead gen) is harder than I expected. Being on stage is a rush, just like it was 30 years ago.

Tell us about your hardest moment as a speaker so far.

When my video played and no audio came out. The tech people could not fix it, so I played the video with no sound – not ideal.

What has been your biggest success as a speaker so far?

To get a paid speaking engagement in Malaysia (August 2017). I’m over the moon!

What was your biggest struggle before finding The Speaker Lab?

Wondering if I was doing something wrong. It’s great to have people who are going through the same things as I am to bounce things off.

How has The Speaker Lab helped you and your business?

I know how to reply to conference planners. The scripts are invaluable.

What is your number one goal over the next 6 months to a year?

To make six figures speaking.
