I am a personal development and motivational speaker, teacher and facilitator who works with organizations to improve the results of their leaders and team members. I personalize and provide real-world information via training workshops and keynotes that you can take home and immediately apply to your organization and life. After surveying thousands of people, I’ve narrowed my topics to the following “moves” that others continue to crave in work and life to move towards success and happiness.
This series is based on five “moves”, each of which represents one of the critical components required to help reach your potential. Moves 1, 2, and 3 are all about moving you. Moves 4 and 5 are about moving others.
I provide real-world information via workshops and keynotes, sometimes blended with John C. Maxwell content, that you can immediately take home and apply to your organization and your life. I am here to help you connect the dots between the world’s biggest gap, which is “knowing” and “doing”.
I look forward to “moving” you on your journey in becoming a successful leader.
I can't wait to go home and share with my husband. It would be interesting for us to work through the five gears and learn what we each need for becoming fulfilled.
If Derek was the last speaker I ever heard, I would be fulfilled. He was electrifying.
Derek does his homework and knows his audience. The way he personalizes his presentation to the people in the room I have only seen paralleled by Stephen M. R. Covey.
Derek has an infectious presence! He is on fire for contributing to the effectiveness and fulfillment of people. Derek has a passion for gathering knowledge from some of the most inspirational thought leaders of our time….and then transferring it (supported by his own life experiences) to others. I’ve participated in Derek’s professional development sessions, and he has a great talent in front of a group. He is knowledgeable, encouraging and a great teacher
Derek brings an amazing amount of energy and professionalism to everything he does. As a communicator and speaker, his confidence, enthusiasm and sincere interest in his topic and audience are obvious. He is terrific!
