I help leaders in government, labor, business and advocacy organizations shape their messages and connect with their audiences.
I’ve been the lead speechwriter on national election campaigns, coached leaders for televised debates, and written speeches for everything from government budgets to countless keynotes.
And I coach speakers and the people who support them on personal leadership communications.
Want to move audiences to action in support of your big idea? We should talk.
