Persuasion. It’s the essence of effective business communication.

Persuasive writing and speaking has always been what I do: from handling jury trials in criminal court as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia, to presenting argument before appellate judges as a civil litigator, to my current roles as public speaking instructor and writing coach in the MBA program at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. In college I majored in Rhetoric and Communication, studying logic, reasoning, and argument.

As a writer, I’m a fanatic about using language precisely and concisely to communicate in a compelling way. I make sure that the audience doesn’t have to struggle-not even for a second-to understand.  

As a speaker, I deliver highly interactive workshops and keynotes that are engaging, practical, and motivating.
