Be A Life-Long Learner

Achieving Your Highest Priorities & Reaching Your Full Potential



Quick Summary

As a fervent believer in life-long learning, I am constantly seeking the best wisdom and insights from world-class leaders and achievers. Through this process, I have identified key strategies that are essential for achieving greater success in life and business. In this presentation I share these proven, actionable strategies, explaining why they are essential and illustrating each with meaningful, memorable examples.

Presentation Outline

I provide powerful, specific and actionable strategies for greater success regarding:


  1. Being Strategic: Identifying & Pursuing What is Mission Critical
  2. Inspirational Leadership: Igniting the Spark Within Those You Lead
  3. Culture: Cultivating Your Most Valuable Organizational Asset
  4. Action! Taking Risks & Making Things Happen
  5. The Best You: Optimizing the Performance of Your Mind & Body
  6. Habits: Dictating Your Success & Your Destiny
  7. Relationships: The Biggest Challenges & The Greatest Rewards
  8. Proactive Partnering: Leveraging the Unlimited Expertise & Wisdom of Others
  9. Uniquely You: Standing Out & Providing Unique Value in a Crowded World
  10. A Life-Long Philosophy: Pursuing a Worthwhile Mission & Leaving a Powerful Legacy


In this easily customizable presentation, event planners are given the opportunity to select which of these topics will be included in the presentation, according to their group’s needs and time constraints (see Possible Formats, below).


To further solidify the powerful concepts above, I briefly address the contrast of “How to Fail: Proven Strategies for Successful Failure.” I then conclude by sharing “The Success System that Never Fails” to inspire each participant to immediately begin leveraging these success strategies. I also provide information regarding additional resources, and finish with a strong and compelling call to action for each participant to internalize and apply these crucial strategies in their lives and leadership.


Target Audience

Individuals and organizations committed to continuous improvement and greater success. They may have specific areas where they are seeking growth, or they may be seeking new areas and ways in which they can increase effectiveness and achieve greater success.


Possible Formats

This presentation can be completely customized to meet your group’s needs and time constraints. Choosing from the list above, you can select any number and combination of topics you feel will be most relevant to your unique audience. Please allow 7 minutes per topic, with an additional 10 minutes for closing remarks, including “The Success System That Never Fails” and a call to commit to action. For example, a presentation that includes 5 of the above topics would require a 45 minute time slot.

Topic Authority 

  • I have been an inspirational leader for more than forty years, and am the founder of four successful companies. I spent fifteen years as the CEO of an organization that my team built from the ground up, taking it from a hope and a dream to become a thriving business. With another organization, named by Fortune Magazine five years in a row as one of “America’s Best 100 Companies to Work For,” I spent nearly fifteen years as the lead executive responsible for National Education and Networking Strategies. My area of responsibility experienced five straight years as number one in the company in both customer and employee satisfaction.
  • I am a lifelong learner – my education did not stop when I received my Master’s degree. Over the course of my life I have read and studied thousands of books and articles, attended hundreds of leading seminars, and listened to countless presentations by world-class leaders and achievers. From these excellent sources I have compiled some of the very best, most effective strategies for greater success, which I share in this presentation.
  • I am privileged to have served as a professor on the faculty of four universities, and I am a firm believer in the incredible ROI of sharing with and learning from others.
  • I am the author and publisher of weekly articles focused on Greater Success and Leadership Excellence.
