Boost the energy and value of your next event with a leadership experience!

Looking for a great speaker to add great value and energy to your conference, client appreciation event or group meeting?

Join the thousands of people who have enjoyed a memorable, engaging experience while taking critical steps to grow their leadership (and their careers). Jamie combines his light-hearted approach to presentations and workshops with a healthy dose of practical application.

His roll-up-your-sleeves approach has participants “doing” (and learning) a lot. He’ll also use an effective blend of storytelling, humour and down-to-business exercises to inspire and motivate change (no stuffiness factor here).

The offerings vary from brief energizers to the more extensive components of The Accelerated Leader Program™. They each address relevant challenges faced by new and emerging leaders and the senior leaders that manage them.

Coaching For Great Work:

Real-world, results-oriented coaching skills for the time-strapped manager

CFGWNow more than ever, managers are responsible for keeping those around them focused on the work that really matters, resilient to what comes and performing at their very best. You can’t afford less.
Coaching effectively doesn’t have to be a “black-art,” require years of training, the perfect personality type or as much time as you think. Indeed, when you have a proven, straight-forward, paint-by-numbers system you can capture the bulk of the value coaching has to offer very quickly and easily.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  1. Learn the four barriers that keep coaching’s value out of reach. Unaddressed, these barriers leave most HR coaching initiatives as simply “a nice idea that didn’t stand a chance.”
  2. Take away the ten best coaching questions. Not just any questions, but questions designed to get to the heart of the matter, generate fresh possibilities and spark anyone into action quickly and easily.
  3. Practice a coaching structure you can use in 10 minutes or less. Yes, you heard right, 10 minutes or less. Who has the time for regular, long, in-depth discussions; you’ve got a business to run.



Four Secrets to Breakthrough Leadership

BreakawayReaching for big goals and taking on brand new challenges are two of the most common situations facing Emerging Leaders. Most don’t do as well as they could because they’re limited by what they think leadership is all about.
The good news is that many of the common myths and assumptions about what it takes to lead are false. In this “interactive keynote”, I’ll bring the often exclusive view of leadership back down to earth where it belongs. I’ll also give you the essential tools and perspectives needed to break the dam on the results you and your company are capable of.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  1. Tame the #1 factor that can squash peak performance. Once you understand how this works, you’ll never look at “taking chances” the same way again. Sadly, many don’t have this insight. They get stuck and don’t flourish as a result.
  2. Build the crucial muscle all great leaders use but 98% ignore. Although many are aware of this, its impact is usually misjudged and its potential rarely captured. It’s one of the most empowering aspects of leadership available to you. He’ll show you why.
  3. Become skilled at uncovering and eliminating leadership inhibitors. As people, we’re wonderfully creative at coming up with reasons and excuses that stop us from reaching for what we really want. You’ll see how to get past these barriers for good.
  4. Commit to the only thing that will produce the results you want. All the strategizing, discussing, planning, pontificating and clarity are worthless without this. With the other essential secrets in hand, this element will be easier to master than ever before.


If you or your organization is serious about fostering personal leadership and creating expanded results then this presentation will accelerate the process. Breakaway is delivered in Jamie’s popular “roll-up-your-sleeves” keynote format. Thirty, sixty and ninety minute versions are available.

"Your session was unlike anything I expected and much more than I expected. It’s highly unusual to have a speaker get an audience so engaged and participating so early."

"One thing I liked about our experience is you don’t offer a “10 steps to success” or remember these three points and life is good, you really got us to go deeper than that. We got to see how we’re getting in our own way and you showed us how our circumstances or environment don’t have to dictate our results."

"Your fun, high energy, never-boring style got everyone’s attention and focus. We were on the edge of our seats!"

"I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you as a speaker. Thank you for a very fun and worthwhile evening."
