I had the pleasure of meeting Tony in the Heroic Public Speaking community. In his senior role as a Teaching Fellow, I experienced the incredible depth of his skill as a speaker, mentor, and coach.
Since then I’ve had the chance to learn more about his work. His skills as an executive coach to business owners are beyond compare. Tony has the ability to quickly make a point, shift someone’s thinking, or compel them to action. Add to this his sales expertise, and you have someone who’s potent ally. You’d be remiss if you fail to hire him!

Tony listens with patience and understanding in order to offer his guidance and advice clearly. He helped me through a situation I had where a fast decision had to be made in my business. He asked the right questions and he got down to the core issue I was facing. Through our conversation, I was able to see a new perspective and feel confident in the decision.
Tony impressed me with how fast he knew exactly where I was and what I needed to hear to get me past it. His mentorship and coaching would be a significant benefit to any executive or business owner.

I was also asked about his books and other materials, so I also sent the Amazon links to The Courage to be in Community: A Call for Compassion, Vulnerability and Authenticity and Crimes of Cunning: A Comedy of Personal and Political Transformation in the Deteriorating Contemporary Workplace. Many thanks again to Tony for his time and expertise.

Tony, thank you so much for working with me. I learned a lot from you about effective communication.
I learned a lot seeing how you work with other clients, as well: you have a knack for seeing the hidden talents and bringing them out.
Hope we will have a chance to continue our work in the near future!

I’ve worked with Tony as a public speaking coach over several years and each time he provides clear and concise direction on how to expand (and improve) my performance. He is insightful and intuitive while bringing a sense of practicality to his feedback, which is invaluable.
As a speaker, it’s not always easy to know how your material and delivery is perceived by others. Is it clear? Is it compelling? Will it resonate? Tony was able to answer all of those questions (and more) for me. In a very short amount of time, he was able to see what I couldn’t, and gave me easy to implement feedback that greatly expanded the impact I have on my audience.

I’m very proud to see my client Bruce Alan Kehr, MD out front on this issue, interviewed by ABC News, serving and supporting women who’ve been mistreated.
Tony has been instrumental in my transition to a department head. His guidance and support has helped me better structure my department, and become a better mentor and leader for my team. I would highly recommend Tony and look forward to checking in with him throughout my career.

I am pleased and flattered that my clients, Chris Haddon and Jason Balin, gave specific, detailed credit to me and some of my techniques in their new book, The Whiteboard: Go From Blank Canvas to a Productive, Leveraged and Highly-Profitable Business. Here is just one paragraph.
We sought out our executive coach, Tony, to show us the most strategic, effective way to design our success. A business coach will help you make the right moves at that right times consistently; it’s a precise recipe for getting ahead. Our decision to partner with an executive coach has been a very fruitful investment. By working with Tony, we were able to meet our ten-year business goal in three years. That’s the power of having an expert help you structure your decisions and career movements on a regular basis. Having a career coach isn’t a luxury; it’s smart business and smart living.
