(Note: If you may be changing plans for events because of the coronavirus outbreak, I can offer in-person or virtual keynotes and workshops from my home office in Tel Aviv.)

Corporate truth from a journalist turned marketer turned business journalist who has nothing to sell but my ideas. I create customized presentations based on your selected topic below.

A former newspaper editor​ and director of marketing in the high-tech industry, I am now a professional corporate and business speaker as well as a consultant, The Promotion Fix columnist for The Drum, and a member of Toastmasters International.

I use my careers to show businesses the state of the corporate world as a neutral observer with nothing to sell. Born and raised in the United States, I am now based out of Tel Aviv.

A Business Speaker With Nothing to Sell

Agencies are biased and want to sell their services. Company staff are also biased want to promote their company’s products. As a professional speaker, I have nothing to sell except my ideas. I make my living by writing and speaking — and not selling a book or shilling for some sponsor.

“Thank God for someone talking some fucking sense!”

— Claire Strickett, planner and strategist at London creative agency VCCP

Corporate Event Speaker

Business Speech Topics That I Customize

How to Help the World With Real Brand Purpose
(30 minutes – live or virtual talk)

The corporate hypocrisy of Fearless Girl does not stop there. I go through examples of several companies claiming to do “cause marketing” or “brand purpose” but are completely hypocritical in their own business practices. And then, I will show what everyone here can do to truly help the world instead. We should focus on real cause marketing and brand purpose — not brand hypocrisy. (Example text and deck.)

Other Business & Corporate Topics
