Professional Experience

Information, tools & references for purchasing professionals

My background and professional experience makes a difference to some people planning programs so I've compiled the information here.

Take it with a grain of salt! I've heard some speakers who had a great pedigree but couldn't present a good program. Bottom Line; if you're wondering if I am the right speaker for your program, I think you are better off asking the people who have heard me speak.
