Presentation Overview

Keynote presentations result in an immediate and positive business impact.

My keynote presentations set the stage for differentiating and distinctive one of one perspectives pertaining to legal business strategy, market strategy, management strategy, and client strategy.

I am a sought-after keynote speaker, moderator and chair for legal conferences, retreats, management forums and town hall meetings.

This is because my goals are to help others improve, whether it be to differentiate and be distinctive in a select market, attract quality clients, close more business, bolster client retention, boost productivity, reduce failure rates, rescue eroding profitability, maximize financial returns, expand solution options, succeed strategically with intent, exceed higher goals, and/or enable people to resolve their own problems.

While I focus on topics within legal business strategy, market strategy, management strategy, and client strategy, every speaking engagement is customized to match the needs and temperaments of each audience. Presentations can be tailored as keynotes, training sessions, facilitated brainstorming, or roll-up-your-sleeves workshops.

My value as a legal market subject matter expert has been honed by my one of one brand, intellectual property, and over two-and-a-half decades of hands-on consulting and advisory experience with a wide range of law firms and legal services entities.

My Presentation Style

As a keynote presenter, I deliver real-world views clearly and often with humour, engage interactively, and provide and explain prescriptive recommendations and actionable activities to achieve higher performance with speed.

An award-winning speaker with a pre-legal professional career that spanned the performing arts as well as broadcast news, I am comfortable in the public arena speaking to small gatherings or large audiences.

I am a frequent speaker for programs hosted by The Canadian Bar Association, Ontario Bar Association, British Columbia Bar Association, Law Society of Ontario, Canadian Legal Innovation Forum, and Thomson Reuters. I also present for academic forums and associations, including University of Toronto Faculty of Law, Toronto Intellectual Property Group, Legal Marketing Association, The Law Office Management Association, and PM Forum.

Get-it-Done Value

We get things done. Those who have heard me speak say this is because my presentations are value-packed with proven advice and smart solutions. Because my presentations tend to be interactive, they often becomes a working meeting that results in applicable solutions and instant outcomes.

I am told that many attendees make changes to their market strategy and/or approach either during our session or shortly thereafter, and that this has an immediate positive effect on how they do business.

Many of my keynote presentations are legal education-accredited. While past keynote topics are organized under my four distinct service areas, I will warmly welcome a conversation to learn about your needs. Together we can decide if a presentation may be helpful to your law firm or legal service company.
