Define your Success and Set new Goals as you Improve your Connexion with your Audience via your Story

Fred gives audiences at all levels, from teens to high-level corporate executives to nonprofit agencies, a blueprint to understand their hidden identities, examine pertinent relationships, and evaluate beliefs so they can harness the power they already embody to make transformational change.

It’s through our stories we connect with one another and can gain insightful perspective on the events, experiences, and relationships we live through on a daily basis. I share my story with a multitude of audiences from middle school students to nonprofit organizations and top-level business executives for the purpose of offering a new posture for change in personal, professional, and community journeys.

My story is anchored in processes and relationships that challenged me to define my identity, how I was living, and how I was impacting the world around me. It was through a new understanding of who I am that resets my relationships and enables me to realize the innate power I have to take responsibility for who I want to be and how I choose to live.

No matter who the audience, the message I share is universal: everyone has the choice to discover their story and own who they are and forge the necessary relationships to live a life of positive impact.

Churches

Wherever we see the Word of God purely preached and heard, there a church of God exists, even if it swarms with many faults.
— John Calvin

We are a world of broken people. As a church you have both the gift and responsibility of guiding broken people to healing through relationship… with Christ, with family, and with community. Relationships are what Christ modeled; I share biblical truths that I have learned from reading and studying God’s word. As an ordained minister I am compelled to share my story and the power of the Gospel as it has been revealed to me.

I also share my story with honesty and transparency in hopes that those who are navigating life are inspired to see the innate power of the Holy Spirit to help them change direction fulfill the calling that God has placed before them.


Schools

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.
— Frederick Douglass

After 44 years of youth work it pains me to say, “being a kid is really challenging compared to when I was a kid.” We didn’t couch surf, or have drive by shootings to deal with and the list could go on. For them nowhere is safe. Today’s students face pressure in all areas of life—academically at school, socially with their peers, and personally within the realm of their households. Kids are trying to navigate the expectations placed on them while searching for and developing self-identity. The Middle school through college years are crucial in defining who they are going to be, the impact they want to have, and how they are going to achieve it. In fact many graduate high school and are unsure of who they are and what they want to do.

Through the example of my own story, I speak to the importance of understanding who we are, and how to get what you need. I encourage them to pursue a life-path with a firm understanding of the power they embody to make a positive difference in the lives around them. The impact they have is rooted in the understanding of who they are, what they believe, and how it all affects the way they live. The core of my story is the powerful relationships I have had along the way, and how critical it is to evaluate and seek out relationships that will shape them in a positive way.


Nonprofits

The place to improve the world is first in one’s own heart and head and hands, and then work outward from there.
— Robert M. Pirsig

The story of my personal journey, and the experiences that I have had in life is applicable to all communities. As a keynote speaker for your fundraiser or community event, I tailor my story and experiences to flow with the theme of your message. As the core of my story is anchored in relationships, I use examples from my experiences to relate to and with your donors, cultivating a personal connection between them and your organization’s efforts. I share my message with honesty and transparency in hopes that those who are navigating dark waters in their own lives are inspired to see the innate power they have to change and are inspired to contribute to your organizations efforts to impact the world in which you serve.


Corporate

The key to success is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.
— John Maxwell

The impact your company has within its industry and the world hinges on how it’s influencing all stakeholders. Influence is driven by relationship. Your internal relationships, from top-level executives to hourly sales associates to department managers to even the night staff who maintains your building after hours, affects your organization’s relations and reputation with the external environment. Conversely, your interactions with customers, vendors, potential investors, competitors, and future consumers influence the decisions and actions your company makes internally. The individual make up of your relationships paints a portrait of your organization the whole world will see, interpret, and internalize.

Highlighting the snapshots of relationships that are woven throughout my own personal and professional portrait, I speak about the value of developing a vision and strategies based upon the influence you want to have. I pinpoint the crucial role relationships have in achieving success within your company, industry, and the world.
