Here you’ll find ways Chad can engage your group

I think the reason Chad wins over a crowd so easily is not just because his content is golden, but because of his delivery. I have heard thousands of speakers deliver quality content, but the delivery can be arrogant or underwhelming. Chad’s delivery is the perfect combination of entertaining, authentic, relatable and helpful. He truly captures a crowd.

I give inspiration and instruction to people who want to live with consequence

Growing up wasn’t easy for me. Despite that, I’ve lived my life in defiance of the odds. The message I bring to your audience is about that journey – specifically how I went from a mindset of surviving to one of thriving. 

During my presentations, workshops, and podcast interviews I take the audience on a journey that ultimately challenges them to make a decision to live their life “suffering toward” rather than “suffering from.” I will deliver the stories and strategies that will help your audience transform their lives regardless of their circumstances or background. 

The themes of my work are: 

  • a mindset that supports you and doesn’t sabotage you
  • creating good mental wellness practices
  • living a life of consequence
  • giving oneself permission to live fully as the person they have worked so hard to become 

Your audience will discover new ways to think about their life and their future. They will leave with the motivation and the tactical tools they need in order to take action toward living their best lives. 

I appreciate you considering me as a speaker for your event. It would be my honor to discuss how my message can be customized for your audience.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! The event was perfect. You are by far the best speaker we have had. We have so many people reaching out with positive comments. I appreciate you so much.

A LIFE OF IMPACT AND INFLUENCE: Keynote • Workshop • Podcast

A LIFE OF IMPACT AND INFLUENCE: The Source, Creation, and Expression of Leadership


In this presentation, Chad will guide the group through an ontological inquiry into leadership. As a guided group inquiry, the entire presentation is styled as an interactive experience – one where the nature and qualities of leadership are examined from the perspective of how we observe leadership, and how we become what others recognize as leadership. 


This presentation is based on Chad’s proprietary framework, the BCVE. Chad teaches that the components of the BCVE (Being, Commitment, Vision, Effort) are what makes leadership occur to others as leadership when they see us. 


Your audience will discover a new way to see themselves and how they view their role as a leader.

Chad will share his experience with feeling stuck, how he was able to navigate through the feeling, and what he learned along the way. Most notably, Chad will make the distinction for your group about change and transformation and the connection between stuckness and suffering.


Your audience will discover a new way to see how they are experiencing this phase of their life, and Chad will light a path for them to create a new way to see what they are experiencing.

WORKING THE PLAN: Creating Your Mental Wellness Routine


There’s never been a better time to have a discussion about good mental health practices. In this presentation, Chad will present practical tips that your audience can immediately implement in their lives to create a mental health routine. 


Chad will draw from his own life experiences and share with your audience his journey of battling depression, anxiety, and feelings of loneliness. He will clearly define what it means to be depressed, or anxious, and how he has managed to make feelings occur less frequent, and become shorter in duration. 


Whether they are someone who lives with mental health challenges of their own, or they have someone in their life who does, your audience will glean insights into how to make sense of this part of our human experience.

  • Youth Groups
While we already had great expectations for the event, Chad exceeded them. Chad was incredibly engaging. His content was thoughtful, interesting and relatable whether you are an ally or in the LGBTQ+ community. Chad immediately created a safe space for our network and it was evident our members felt that, as several people opened up on the call and shared their own sensitive truths. Chad’s discussion had the perfect balance between challenging the audience to dig deep and providing supportive guidance. There were so many gems Chad shared throughout the event, but if I have to name one that resonated most with our audience, it would be “the world needs you right now.” On behalf of our network, we are grateful we had the opportunity to connect with Chad.
