Would you like to get some actionable help for your communication?

Now you can get one of my video course and instantly apply those skills to your presentations, speeches or any other public speaking opportunity. Join thousands of other students who boosted their messages and careers by moving their audiences


I am passionate about public speaking and I have been delivering training on it since 1995. Seminars, coaching, video-courses, individual sessions for executives or politicians to help people spread their messages successfully. Now with video & social media too. Hundreds of people after attending my seminars become more effective speakers (and happier too).

My training style is very engaging and based on actionable points. I love to quote "Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire".

I have a background in sales and marketing for different multinational companies including IBM and Anixter.

I love my wife, my daughter, helping others and good food.
