My Approach

I have a one-on-one personal style to my speaking engagements.

Although I may be speaking to 700 people, I try to make a connection. This connection will enable my presentation to resonate at an individual level with my audience.

I strive to bring a rewarding experience to everyone who attends events that I’m speaking at. My goal is to have everyone take away “knowledge-nuggets” they can use day one to improve themselves and their organization!

Working with Tony was an easy and rewarding process throughout.

From the very beginning, Tony was very responsive to our inquiries, very flexible in terms of meeting with our group. He worked diligently to understand our group’s needs, and what we were looking to accomplish in a KM training session. The written materials provided were excellent and his in-person training was thorough and well-received by everyone in our group.

Tony was also clear throughout that he views his relationship with our company as a continuing one, and he has consistently checked in with us to offer guidance and support and we are fortunate to have a resource like Tony to lean on.

I would highly recommend Tony for corporate KM training and expertise.
