2 Interviews on 2 Topics – 1 Underlying Principle (for ‘everything’)

Two weeks ago, I was interviewed by two very different people on two very different topics, and somehow, we dug down to the same place. Brian Crombie hosts the Brian Crombie Radio hour is the number one drive home show in west Toronto for the past year. Brian and I met through momondays, a storytelling event I created in 2012 that grew to 16 cities across North America Pre-Covid, and that was where the conversation started.Jaimee Jakobczak operates Crooked Forest, a really cool music and creative-writing based company that exists to fill in gaps sometimes left by mainstream media outlets. She was asking me about songwriting – how I write the songs I write and why…Both were fascinating conversations, and both Jamiee and Brian got me talking about things I was not expecting to talk about. (That’s the hallmark of a great interviewer!)So what’s the common element between storytelling and songwriting? Answer: Core Message.

What really drives me is helping companies and individuals to drill down to the core of their unique value and differentiation, and then craft their Essential Message' that attracts and connects with audiences and stakeholders... including customers, investors, strategic partners, and top talent. As a professional speaker, trainer, and consultant for over 30 years, I've worked with leaders and sales teams in more than nine countries around the world, from Montreal to Moscow, and from Israel to Iran.

I love to lead workshops, speak at conferences, and work with clients one on one.... as much as I love to spend time with family, paddle whitewater, ride my motorcycle (hard), and write and perform my songs...
