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.
