To achieve any level of success or reach your highest potential or take the next step in your career or your life, you must go beyond whatever is in your way or holding you back. Everything you want is on the other side of something.
For some, this means going beyond the past, your current circumstances or the competition. For others, this means going beyond your fears, limiting beliefs or the uncertainties that lie ahead.
We are here to inspire, help and support you in your journey beyond. Imagine what we can do together on your quest to find out what’s possible for you.
Everything you want is beyond graduation, beyond day one on the job, beyond management or beyond your career. For athletes, victory and the championship is beyond the competition and the game itself. Whatever you are working towards, we can help you get there. Our success is your success.
My journey started while I was homeless in high school.
I later struggled with uncertainty, a lack of confidence, no purpose or vision for the future and many difficult challenges in my career and in life.
Over time, I developed a way out, a path forward and a competitive advantage that led me to become a senior executive at companies like Disney and Madison Square Garden. I wrote a best-selling book, launched a global podcast and started my own company to help you.
It’s now time to share what I did to go beyond my own fears, doubts, limitations and challenges on the path to happiness and success.
I now travel the world (both virtually and in person) to share my story and our impactful method to inspire and help others in colleges, universities, small or large companies and communities around the world.
I facilitate world-class training and development programs and lead a talented team with an immense passion, enthusiasm and red-hot purpose to impact and help you go beyond whatever is in your way or is holding you back. Imagine the feeling when you Power Beyond What’s Possible for you.
I now travel the world (both virtually and in person) to share my story with students, young professionals and senior executives at colleges, universities and Fortune 500 companies. I speak at conferences, webinars, community events, leadership events – you name it!
Each speaking event is fully customised to suit the individual or organization’s needs – whether that’s sharing the inspiring story of my challenging circumstances, more about the fascinating world of Disney or talking about my entrepreneurial journey. No matter what the format of the event, I’ll always bring one consistent message – how to Standout.
While the road to success can be simple, it’s never easy. To achieve our goals and dreams, we all need a mentor, a guide and a leader who can inspire, help and guide us every day. My own journey and over 20 years of experience and research can help you, your students and your organization get to the next level.
