Owner and President
Having run the company for more than 35 years before semi-retiring, you could say I’m the keeper of the flame for our extended family. The passion, results, and extraordinary relationships we built live on through our brilliant facilitators, dedicated staff, and wonderful clients.
Chief Executive Officer
As CEO, my happy place is in inspiring this extraordinary, expert team and our clients to new heights, where powerful, passionate communication brings out the “leader” in everyone—and creates meaningful connections.
Vice President of Sales
I get a thrill from defining our sales and marketing strategies, leading our amazing sales team, and working closely with clients to make sure they are thrilled with the impact of our training programs and our working relationships.
Director of Sales
There’s nothing more fulfilling to me than building relationships with clients and potential clients who want to become more powerful communicators, learning exactly what they need, then matching them with the best programs and services.
Director of Business Operations
The “business” side of the business is where I’m happiest. From setting operational policies and procedures to overseeing day-to-day systems like finance and payroll, I strive to ensure the business runs efficiently and effectively.
Director of Learning and Development
I’m passionate about leading PowerSpeaking’s learning and development team to design and deliver the best communication training programs on the planet. That means continually improving our current workshops, as well as expanding our offerings to meet clients’ future needs.
I’m endlessly fascinated by the intersection of learning systems and cutting-edge technology. So, I manage our virtual offerings and assist in continually updating our program content and delivery to keep PowerSpeaking in the forefront of our industry.
Sales and Customer Operations Program Manager
I’m all about the gazillion details involved in the logistics of delivering our programs. Schedules, bookings, venues, client support—you name it. I work closely with our internal team and clients on a daily basis to make sure the workshops come off without a hitch.
Let me create, execute, and monitor all of our digital marketing strategies, and I’m a happy camper. I work closely with our sales team to make sure all of our marketing activities align with our business plan and deliver great ROI across all marketing channels.
Business Operations Coordinator
I handle the day-to-day administrative activities that keep the business humming. From new-client setup to managing invoices, purchase orders, and payroll, I assist in ensuring that operations are running smoothly and meeting the needs of our clients and staff.
PowerSpeaking, Inc. Founder, Retired
Back in 1985, as a former psychologist, corporate training manager, president of the Northern California Chapter of the National Speakers Association, and a long-time Toastmaster, I could see the widespread need for presentation skills training. I started the company with the goal of helping business people build their confidence and their careers. I retired in 2016 after 30 rewarding years helping to grow this remarkable company.
