A Little About Me

I was one of the first half a dozen speakers in the world presenting on the ideas and concepts of personal branding. Since 2003 I have been speaking, coaching, consulting and writing on the subject.  I have spoken to thousands on the subject and worked personally with hundreds of people from Canada to Australia to Asia to Europe and just about everywhere in between.

I truly believe that it is up to you to own the definition of who you are and that personal branding is the vehicle to help that happen.

I deliver inspiring and action oriented keynotes, workshops and training events across North America (and beyond) and can usually be found wearing teal coloured, custom Converse sneakers, even with a suit - its part of my 'rebel brand'.

I take the time to educate, guide and provide insightful resources with genuine care, enthusiasm and a sincere dedication to help others succeed. Some people describe me as a Human Google!

I don't tend to rely on celebrity examples or get caught up in theory. My presentations are full of real life personal brand and personal leadership brand stories,  personal experiences and practical applications.  I have used these approaches and methods with clients and also in managing my own corporate career , that started in banking and ended up in biotech.

Other things you might want to know about me:

  • Transported Brit now living in Canada, still miss English humour, football (soccer) and pubs!
  • Single father with two great teenage kids.
  • Experienced head neck cancer. I don't like the term survivor, I like 'dealt with it and living life on my terms'
