Finding the Right Speaker
If you’re in charge of finding the speaker for your event I understand how important it is to get the right one. Quite often getting the right speaker determines if the event is a success or a failure. That’s a lot of pressure on you to choose wisely.
I have created this page to help you discover if I am the right fit for you. I am honored that you thought of me. It’s one of the reasons I put so much into each speech I give.
Every presentation I do is built around the idea of what you want the outcome to be for your people. The process includes interviews, audience profiles, review of event objectives, and working with you, to assure that the message is the one you want.
This page provides an overview of what I have to offer to help you pull off an event that creates an impact and leads to positive change.
Here’s what you can expect from me and my team:
- A professionally prepared, entertaining, dynamically delivered presentation focused on achieving the outcomes you want
- Prompt, professional replies to your phone calls and email messages (within 24 hours)
- A personal phone consultation with me prior to your event, so I can better understand how I can serve you and your audience
- An announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels – if so desired by you
- A custom resource page, exclusively created for your attendees, along with links to books, articles, and other resources I believe will be helpful
- A quick follow-up communication after the event with me, to make sure I met your expectations
I speak on the importance of purpose in your life and business. To reach your highest levels of success a rallying purpose for your business, and a powerful purpose for every team member, is essential.
Every presentation I give is designed to help create your desired outcomes for when our time together is done. I can present these topics as a keynote or a workshop. Also, I have a half-day, and in some cases, full-day seminar version.
Are you struggling with employee engagement and morale, stagnant productivity and high turnover rates – even for the team members and executives you want to keep? Are you looking for ways to engage, motivate and inspire your team?
Research has proven that organizations with a strong sense of purpose have team members who are significantly more engaged, creative, productive, loyal, and happy. That leads to a better bottom line.
Starting with purpose is what the best people want in their work. It triggers their internal motivators and brings out their peak performances. It also leads to a great work environment. Click here for my most requested programs for businesses.
Your busy lifestyle and the demands on your time have you pulled in a million directions. Emails, meetings, faxes, and phone calls distract you from the real work you want to do. Sometimes you get so busy putting out fires, you barely have time to do the things that matter most to the future of your business and life.
This presentation leads to a new mindset and provides tested strategies to silence the distractions and focus on what’s most important in order to Do Less and Achieve More.
You want to count and make a difference. You want to live a life of value and meaning. You know you were destined for something better. You can feel it inside you, just begging to come out.
You were born with gifts and talent to live the extraordinary life you’ve always dreamed of, a Life On Purpose. It’s time to start going for it.
When you discover your Passionate Purpose you experience a tremendous shift. You have a reason to get up in the morning and a way to make a difference in the world. You develop clarity about what’s most important to you and why.
This creates more energy for you to pursue those things and generates more success in your work and in every aspect of your life.
In this presentation I show you how to find your true calling and then how to take the daily steps necessary to experience your best life. Click here for more information on this program.
Whether you’re an entering freshman or about to graduate, you are going through some huge transitions and decisions. What’s your purpose? What do you really want to do with your life? Who do you want to become? Can you really live the life you’ve dreamed of? Isn’t that just for the lucky few?
When you discover your Passionate Purpose you develop clarity about what’s most important to you and why. You now have a powerful reason to wake up excited – every day. The question is: Will you pursue it, or find a reason or excuse not to? The answer to that will change your life. Click here for my most requested programs for colleges.

A Little Bit About Me
My focus is to customize my keynotes and seminars to make your event about the outcomes you desire, not about me. The question that drives me is, “What is it you want your people to do after my time with them is over?”
I started studying personal growth and motivation 24 years ago when I was getting my masters in counseling psychology. I have read over 300 books on the subject. I continue to read, watch videos, and attend seminars to remain current on the best research and techniques available to help people grow and become more successful.
This is what I love to do. Nothing gets me more excited than helping orgnaizations and people change their lives.
I apply what I talk and write about in my daily life. It has served me well in starting three small businesses and I now use those experiences to help others get what they want.
Hosting a talk radio show for 20 years has given me plenty of practice in how to inform, entertain, and move an audience to take action. Those skills translate well to my presentations.

“Are you tired of feeling ‘trapped’ when you know that life has so much more to offer? Or perhaps you are on the right track, but you want to accelerate your journey to success and significance? Then you need to pick up and devour Greg’s book, Go! How to Find and Pursue Your Passionate Purpose today!”

“Greg presented Business on Purpose to HR professionals who are always looking for strategic ways to engage employees, increase morale and reduce turnover rates. He was energetic, his communication style interactive, and he provided pertinent research on why companies are most successful when the organization’s goals are aligned with employees’ sense of purpose.
Many waited in line afterwards to meet him and get his book autographed. I would highly recommend him for your next event.”
