Keynote Speaker

All the work I do is inspired by my two great passions: The Hospitality Industry and Improv Theatre.

I have been in the hospitality industry since the age of 13 and have become an expert on personal branding… I am also a professional improviser and Second City Alumni.  I have taken my love for the two and blended them together to create The BrandProv System for Hospitality Professionals.

Improv is more than something funny that happens on a stage. It’s a mindset. It’s a lifestyle.

The BrandProv System I teach helps hospitality professionals get a competitive edge by using a framework that incorporates the secrets of Improv Theatre!

It is personal branding … improvised!

I teach, train and coach on my BrandProv System framework with opening/closing keynotes, workshops, and training videos.

"I don’t just "speak", I design a customized speech that becomes a motivational experience."

Why should you listen to me?

I know how critical the right speaker is to the bottom line success of an event.

With clients like Ritz Carlton, Marriott, Conagra Foods, Hyatt Hotels, Delta Dental, Meetings & Incentives, MGM Hotels and Resorts, Experient – A Maritz Global Event Company, SITE and Meeting Professionals International … I have become a well respected expert on personal branding for the hospitality professional.

I understand the challenge of finding the right speaker. Especially considering I’ve spent the last 15 years of my career in the meetings and convention business.
