-Want more innovative employees?

Conformity and conventional thinking are frustrating and limit the potential of workers and organizations. They take many forms:
-Political correctness & fake niceness
-Bureaucracy & hierarchy
-Face time & useless meetings

The Reality Speaker!
Are you tired of the same old politically correct, candy coating, "everyone is so special" speakers and consultants? I am the complete opposite. I tell it like it is, with no B.S. ! I say the things that everyone is thinking, but no one wants to talk about...the important stuff!
I am the world's only Reality Speaker, as opposed to all the motivational speakers out there! If you are looking for a suit who uses the latest cute catch phrases, I ain't your guy. However, if you want total unedited honesty and a mold breaking perspective on leadership, strategy and competitive advantage, I am your speaker or unconventional leadership consultant.
I have years of practical managerial experience in several industries and with the U.S. government. I earned a PhD in Management, published over 36 articles and a book, Compete Outside the Box: The Unconventional Way to Beat the Competition. However, I do not fit the stereotype of a stuffy intellectual. Originally from New York City, my presentations are delivered with a sense of humor, 100% unedited honesty and street smarts!
I have helped thousands of people around the world become better leaders for over 15 years. I have presented my ideas in the United States, France, Peru, Thailand, Portugal, Mexico, India, Switzerland, China, Japan, Estonia, Sweden, Puerto Rico, and Germany. I have also lived in Japan and Germany. I am fluent in Spanish and speak basic German.
I am an unconventional thinker who simplifies the complex, will change your worldview and teach you how to become an unconventional leader!
