Speaking

I enjoy giving talks on topics of passion for me, but due to my busy role at Driveline Baseball and as a father of two young children, I can only agree to a limited number of engagements per year. Consequently, my speaking fees tend to go up every year commensurate with demand.

Some major events where I have been invited as a keynote/premier speaker:

  • World Golf Fitness Summit, Premier TPI Golf Training Conference: 2018
  • MLB International (Amsterdam), Skill Conference: 2016
  • Pitch-a-Palooza, Largest Baseball Skill Conference: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
  • Baseball Canada, National Skill Conference: 2016
  • Best Ever Clinic, Premier Canadian Baseball Conference: 2017
  • Washington State Baseball Coaches Conference: 2017
  • Seattle Mariners, Private Skill Development: 2017
  • Oakland Athletics, Private Skill Development: 2018
  • Colorado Rockies, Private Skill Development: 2018

I’ve given over 25+ other presentations since 2012 focusing on kinesiology, biomechanics, sport, entrepreneurship, and Internet business.

My speaking style is quickly-paced with sporadic contextual humor and engaging stories drawing from my varied background. My presentations always use a custom-developed Powerpoint theme with zero animations, sounds, or gimmicks, and flows naturally without text repeated as speech – slides contain talking points, data visualization, and broad concepts that augment my speech.

Slides will be submitted in Powerpoint and PDF well in advance of my speech. If the event is related to baseball, I will promote my talk via Driveline Baseball’s verified Twitter account and the company’s Instagram account with tens of thousands of users at no additional charge.

Packages include one sixty (60) minute talk with slides appropriate for the topic and one optional thirty (30) minute roundtable / small group setting for your attendees. I will also commit to at least one dinner with the event staff and private small group discussions with other conference speakers and any VIP guests.

You are free to record and sell my talk to anyone and use the clips for commercial purposes so long as no endorsement of companies, products, or services is implied without a written agreement in advance. Should you produce multimedia of my talk, you will provide a single digital copy in return and grant me unlimited personal and commercial use of the talk with the exception of reselling it for my own purposes. If you create an affiliate marketing platform, I will likely participate and market the sale of your event’s videos (including my talk) via my social networking platform and websites.
