I’m often asked if I have a video of a training so that prospective clients might get an idea of my work. The answer is “no,” because when I visit a client’s office or training space, I cannot reasonably control lighting, sound or other features of the room. The last thing I want is to create a video that isn’t aesthetically pleasing and 110 percent professional. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t get a good idea of my approach. See for example these short clips of me speaking and sharing my philosophy; some of the videos are also testimonials created in connection with awards I was conferred:
