My Experience

With audiences ranging from the National Basketball Association’s Rookies Transition Program, the New York Giants and New York Jets football teams, to the United States Pentagon, universities, church and leadership conferences worldwide, I speak to a range of issues and needs in widely diversified environments.

I also regularly address government leaders in my role as an appointed member of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Faith-Based Initiatives and Advisory Board to New Jersey Governor’s Safe Streets and Neighborhoods Oversight Committee. And, as a board member, I address the boards of Nyack College and Alliance Theological Seminary, and several non-profit management groups. The topic of governance and board development is a subject I’m frequently called up by organizational executives to provide consultation.
