Happy • Helpful • Humble • Human

I’ve spoken at events with thousands of attendees. I trained corporations who have gone on to earn millions of dollars. I have 21 HubSpot Certifications – every one they offer.

And I’m a high school dropout. Hi, I’m George. While most of my peers were consumed by term papers, fraternity parties and figuring out what the rest of their life was going to look like, I was 17, dropping out of school and heading out into the “real world” – scared and alone.

That ended up being the best decision I ever made. It shaped my life into what it is today.

How I got to where I am now is a long story filled with triumphs, failures and some divine intervention. But through it all, I learned one important thing about myself: I was born to help people. And that led me to my life’s purpose “to be the catalyst for others to be their best selves.”

While I am known for being a speaker and trainer, I’m really a catalyst. And I’d welcome the opportunity to learn more about your needs and how I can help you, your organization and your teams realize their full potential.

WHO AM I?

For the past 20 years, I have been helping people and organizations become their best selves. Sometimes, it’s that “aha” moment that happens when someone hears one of my speeches. Other times, it happens during a training session. That’s what I do – unleash hidden potential. And thankfully, am blessed to be able to do it for a living.

MY PHILOSOPHY.

I approach my work the same way I approach life – by being happy, helpful, humble and human. It’s never about me. It’s about you, your teams and your organization. That’s why I take the time to get to know you – your thoughts, needs and goals. Then I plan my speeches and training sessions. Never before. Because if were to create positive change together, we first need to fully understand the transformation we’re trying to create.

George & Public Speaking

Many people fear public speaking. I love it. A conversation with a single person or a 20,000 person event, it doesn’t matter. When I have a microphone in my hand and a vision to convey, I know great things are about to happen.
