Ted works closely with his clients to understand their goals for the event in order to ensure that everyone comes away both inspired and ready for action.

Ted makes sure that every presentation he does is both "interesting and actionable" in an effort to drive real change.
You aren't hiring Ted for 1 event, you are starting a relationship. In addition to the prep work and the presentation itself, Ted always makes himself available for follow-up meetings with the C suite and other senior-level executives who are interested in continuing the conversation. Usually, these meetings take place, on-site, and after the presentation but they can also be done virtually and over an extended period of time.
Having an experienced emcee is critical to having an event that is dynamic and runs on time. Ted brings years of experience hosting and emceeing large-scale, C-level events such as the Google CFO Forum and LEAP in Riyadh.
Ted is very much a global citizen and is happy to engage with audiences all around the world.

Ted gets to the venue early, enjoys meeting the attendees, and then sticks around following the event in an effort to answer any questions that were raised during the talk.
