???????????????????????????????      Motivational Speaker

You and your team, individually and collectively, have great creativity available.

Unleash it. Empower it. Build with it. Unite with it. Succeed with it.

The keys: See differently; Change perspectives; Grow authentically.

SOLUTION:  Fundraising With Limited Resources

“I’ve never had the luxury of a well-funded fundraising office,” Dion McInnis said, “so I had to develop programs, processes and mindsets that involved more people in the process and helping them understand their roles.  It also called for limiting time wasters that included some programs and people.”  Use his lessons to be successful without a large budget.

SOLUTION:  Growing Healthy, Happy, Successful Teams in Challenging Times

Healthy, happy teams are those who honor and celebrate their own abilities, recognize and respect it in others, and have “permission” for open communications.  It is a question of morale.  Morale is not boosted, it is built; it is not an emotion, it is a mindset.  Enable communications, empower success and exhibit leadership and you’ll have a team that handles change and challenges with grace and success. Improve retention, enhance success, and minimize “sick” days.

SOLUTION:  Finding Voice and Expression, and Sharing

It seems that women have not fully owned their voices and men have not owned their emotions.  Most people are missing half of their potential as human beings.  We need both voice and emotion; they work together.  ECI programs can help you find your voice and learn how to express it in words, images and other artistic methods.  You will then learn how to share.  By sharing from our creative pursuits, we can better connect with each other and understand ourselves and each other.

"Very dynamic speaker - drive presentation through his stories. Love it."
