I heard you need a highly caffeinated professional speaker for your next event. You’ve come to the right place.


Kyle is an incredibly captivating and adaptable professional speaker who is available for keynotes, expert panels, workshops, training sessions, and retreats.

He brings experience speaking to audiences ranging from 2 to 500+ attendees. He has designed and facilitated a 10-minute conference ‘express talk’ on mental health storytelling, a multi-week new employee training program for one of the nation’s most ethnically diverse universities, and everything in-between. And he is equally comfortable engaging attendees in person or on Zoom. Importantly, Kyle prefers a Starbucks in hand when speaking.

Past audiences include Fortune 100/500 companies, hyper-growth startups, government agencies (federal, state, county, and city), nonprofits, universities, fraternities and sororities, membership organizations, service groups, and career centers.

Finally, all talks are deeply customized to meet your organization’s unique needs as no two audiences are the same.

IMPORTANT: Kyle’s speaking calendar is often booked several months to more than a year in advance. If are considering inviting Kyle to speak at your next event, please invite him as soon as possible.

Kyle really knows his stuff!

After an hour sitting in on his presentation, I feel much more knowledgeable about my footprint with LinkedIn and on the web in general. One of the best things I could take away from the presentation is to say that I left feeling completely motivated and inspired. Motivated to get out and go after what I want and inspired about my career. He is truly awesome!”
