My seminars on adaptability are full of energy, humor, and innovative ideas that leave participants inspired and ready to become more adaptable. Stories of spies, peace builders, and Marine Corps officers are woven together with amazing tales of octopuses, viruses, and rattlesnakes, with lessons for businesses, non-profit organizations, parents, and first responders. I am equally at home speaking with CEOs, police chiefs, battle hardened soldiers, and dedicated school teachers as I am in sharing my research with fellow scientists. I am available for keynote addresses, small group discussions, and half or full day workshops.
Here’s what some of my clients have said about my events:
“Your talk was a perfect kick-off for the meeting: insightful, thought-provoking, and brilliantly presented. Virtually every evaluation form listed your presentation under the question, ‘Were there any talks that were particularly useful to you?'”
– Marni Clippinger, COO, Marketing Science Institute
“I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and discussion…and you caused me some extra work. I downloaded your book Monday night, and was fascinated by your thesis and approach. So I edited my presentation to introduce the “Octopus rating Scale”. I was intrigued by the parallels you drew and how it applied to what we are doing. And it really helped people resonate with the message of my presentation Tuesday morning.”
– Jerry DeFrancisco, President, Humanitarian Services, American Red Cross
“Please know how tremendously grateful we are for the brilliant presentation you gave at USIP! You absolutely galvanized our audience! In almost every panel for the next day and a half, people referred to the concepts you raised in your presentation. You were a dream keynote speaker, inspiring our audience with new ideas, and setting a wonderful tone of innovation and creativity for the conference.”
– Melanie Greenberg, President and CEO, Alliance for Peacebuilding
