In my talks I focus on The 7 Systems of Influence, a framework I developed from 20 years of experience as a CEO and my research on leadership, psychology, and marketing.
My talks can be customized to meet the needs of audiences from all industries, cultures, and backgrounds. Below are sample topics:
Drop the Mask and Become a Real Leader
As executives we wear a mask to hide our imposter syndrome and the fact we’re making it up as we go. Ditch the disguise and become an authentic leader who generates real, long-term results by learning how The 7 Systems of Influence can help you define your vision, utilize your genius zone, engage critical stakeholders, lead with compelling words and action, and develop a plan that works, every time. You’ll also learn why you can’t do it alone and exactly who you need around you to help you shine, and why love is the ultimate leadership tool.
Discover Your Genius Zone and Make Your Marketing Campaigns Pop
We marketers know that the right message, delivered to the right audience, in the right way and at the right time, leads to the results we need to justify our existence. But without the right foundation we will create the wrong message, and no matter how well we executive the rest of our campaign it will fall flat. In this presentation learn how to use The 7 Systems of Influence to define your vision, identify your ideal audience, and discover your genius zone so that the right message is obvious and will connect with your audience every time.
Raising Successful Children Starts With Vision
Too many parents find themselves stuck with “grown up” children who have failed to launch. They wonder where things went wrong and if there’s hope of getting their 20-something out of the house and into a successful, independent life. Yes, there’s hope for parents to be, parents with young children, and even parents with older children who should have long flown the nest. During this talk you’ll learn how to use The 7 Systems of Influence to craft a vision of your family’s future that includes everything you want for your children. You’ll also learn the tools you need to maximize your influence and impact and see your children thrive.
Beyond the Journal–How to Make Your Research Matter
Years of research, only to see it published where no one but other academics will ever read it. You know your research has the power to change lives, but how do you get your message out there in front of the right people, and without sacrificing its quality, your dignity, and your integrity? In this presentation you’ll learn how the actions of the most widely known academics align with The 7 Systems of Influence, and how you can follow in their footsteps to define your vision, discover your genius zone, identify your ideal audience, and craft compelling content that will bring your message to the masses.
Startup Marketing Made Easy
Josh Steimle struggled for over a decade to take his business past half a million in revenue. Then, in less than two years he grew his business 1,400%. His secret? The 7 Systems of Influence, a framework he used to publish over 300 articles in more than two dozen high-profile business magazines, land a book deal, deliver a TEDx talk, and land paid speaking gigs around the world.

Selling Without Selling–How Compelling Content Drives Customers to Your Door
Sales may be a noble profession, but it’s often hard, dirty work that has a reputation for straining the integrity of its best representatives. Whether you love sales or hate sales, you can dramatically improve your results by learning how to use content to “sell without selling.” In this presentation, learn how The 7 Systems of Influence can help you set lofty goals most would call crazy dreams and then exceed those goals as you define your genius zone, discover your ideal audience, and create content that brings sales to you and virtually eliminates the rest of the sales cycle. You’ll hear how 7 Systems author Josh Steimle created content that had clients calling him up to say “I read your article–please send me a contract.
Influence is the Key to Everything You Want
Knowledge is not power. You can know everything, but without influence you can’t do anything. Whether you want a new career, new relationship, or new body, it will take more than reading books or watching videos to get it. No matter what you want, you will have to influence someone to get it, even if the only person you have to influence is yourself. In this presentation you’ll learn how to use The 7 Systems of Influence to define your dreams, find your genius zone, identify your ideal audience, and create compelling content that will inspire action.

I understand how challenging it is to find the perfect speaker.
In addition to my role as a speaker I’ve also filled the role of event organizer, arranging small corporate training sessions as well as large, multi-day conferences.
I’ve seen speakers shine and I’ve seen them sink, and I’ve seen how the success of an event depends on the quality and fit of the speakers.
