Tom Catalini — A Speaker Who Brings Motivation and Actionable Advice

I love big ideas. But that’s not enough. People need to take action too.

That requires motivation. And actionable information. Put those together and anything is possible.

I speak about topics covered on this site and in my books: Leadership, Communication, Career Advancement, and Bringing Your Best Self to Your Biggest Challenges.

Why You Should Hire Tom for Your Next Event

  • Motivate your team members to do better work while also giving them a clear path to a happier and more satisfied job experience.
  • Provide a clear framework for self discovery and self mastery that will lead to new levels of performance and accomplishment.
  • Give your audience more than inspiration; give them specific strategies and powerful tactics that they can put to use right away.
  • Demonstrate your commitment to continued personal and professional development and growth.
  • Tom’s talk will be tailored to your group’s unique and specific needs, helping to ensure a successful and valuable experience for you and your group.

Special Virtual Speaking Engagement Format

You can also hire Tom to speak to your group virtually. This unique format is effective and efficient. It also:

  • Eliminates travel costs and hotel fees
  • Simplifies logistics
  • Makes exciting and fun use of technology

Sample presentation titles include:

  • How to Get What You Want: Leadership and Communication Skills for Success,
  • Reaching New Heights: Personal Leadership and Your Career Success, and
  • Career Story Secrets: How to Convey Your Awesomeness While Still Being Appropriately Humble, Authentic, and Sincere… And WITHOUT Being Lame or Cheesey.

Every talk is customized. Because every talk is shaped to best meet the needs of the audience.

That’s what leads to feedback that I’m proud of.
