Book me for your event

My goal as a speaker is to inspire and equip your audience with practical, actionable insights on leadership, communication, conflict resolution, and transformation that thrives

As a professional communicator and teacher, I understand the importance a speaker plays in the success of your event. 

I’ve presented in private corporate events and delivered keynotes, presentations, and workshops for industry leading events including Leading Design, Front, HOW Design Live, Interaction, and SxSW. 

“If you need a dynamic speaker who will engage, entertain, and inspire your audience, you need to book Todd for your next event.” 

Topics I Speak On

My most requested keynotes are on the topics of leadership development, influence, communication and conflict, adaptive leadership, building and scaling teams, and the Enneagram as a tool for personal growth and organizational development. I’m happy to create a custom presentation for your audience as well. 

Here’s a list of some of my more popular talks and workshops. 

  • The 4 Steps to Gaining Buy-in and Influencing Executive Decisions
  • The Enneagram as a Tool for Leadership and Organizational Development
  • Leading Change and Influencing Without Authority
  • Adaptive Leadership: Leading Change, Particularly During Times of Uncertainty
  • The Leadership Playbook
  • The Design Leadership and Career Journey

My Promise to You and Your Attendees

The success of your event depends just as much on what happens off-stage as it does on-stage. You can expect the following from me: 

  • Prepared, passionate, and personal in my presentation
  • Energetic and fully engaged with your audience
  • Prompt, professional, and clear correspondence on logistics 
  • Respectful of presentation time limits and event guidelines — no one likes a speaker who runs over, or talks fast
