Trainer Bio


There has never been a better time to differentiate yourself from the pack and take huge leaps in your life and career – as long as you’re ready for it!   In this climate of accelerating change, companies merge, roles change, jobs disappear and new opportunities await.  The only constant is that you’re in the middle of it all. Electrify Your ROI is the only workshop that strengthens both your personal and professional foundation and awareness to maximize your chances of becoming the one who leads into the future, and not the one who is left behind.

 Along with straight-forward, real-world instruction on the business and value-focused language you need to speak and understand in order to be a business leader, this workshop leverages emotional intelligence and personal foundation concepts to drive lasting behavioral change that mitigates the personal risks we all (knowingly or unknowingly) create for ourselves while greatly multiplying the value you bring to any team or organization.

 Project practitioners certainly don’t need to be CPAs or financial experts to be effective, but must be proficient with certain fundamental business concepts that can be applied directly to projects.  Having a solid grasp of these important concepts can greatly assist project teams in achieving optimized and sustained business value for organizations. Most of us have heard of the terms discounting, ROI, NPV, IRR and payback, but what do they really mean, what do they entail and how do we apply them to projects? As project professionals, we must not be intimidated by the numbers, and Electrify Your ROI will show you how to fully understand and embrace them to accurately represent and manage your project investments.

 Project professionals will walk away with a renewed personal vision, hard-core value knowledge and behavioral awareness that leads to a drastically higher level of performance to ensure you will always be a true value and positive force in any organizational or social environment.

 This 1-day workshop will give you new insight around which to re-align your personal and professional vision from learned reaction to one of choice, design and strength.
