Keynote Speaking Engagements

“Greg comes to play–in the deepest sense–and has become a permanent fixture at our events! When he speaks and/or leads a workshop, I can always count on audience reactions like these:  ‘High energy/great examples.’  ‘The class exercises were dynamic and thought provoking!’ ‘Great speaker. Made me feel he was speaking directly to me.’ ‘Passion-love it. Thanks!’ ‘Excellent! Bring Greg back next year.’  And this isn’t your ordinary hyperbole. Greg simply delivers a complete experience for our audience.”

CATALYST Training Services offers a unique and sustainable way to not only to reach, but also impact large, groups of people. Over the years, keynote speaking have been an expensive form of entertainment and a short-lived way to motivate teams and individuals. With ever-increasing competition, limited time, and under-nourished training budgets, producing and sending people to annual conferences, has become restricted because of diminishing value and ROI.

At  CATALYST Training Services we have combined over 34 years of speaking experience with the dynamics of Accelerated Learning Technology, along with interactive group techniques to create a greater impact on large numbers of people. In education, the more people are involved in their learning process, the more ownership they will take to apply what they have learned. Our Interactive Keynotes are designed to safely get people out of their box to explore the practical ideas and skills being offered to improve overall effectiveness, lower stress and increase overall job satisfaction. Our Interactive Keynotes are not “canned presentations.” Rather, our speakers work with organizers to custom design Keynote Addresses and activities to fit with you organization’s and/or conference’s objectives.

Sample of KEYNOTE Topics:

  • Leading Beyond FEAR
  • Quick TIPS for Regulating Stress & Wellbeing
  • What IF Your Problems are NOT the Problem?
  • I’m Leading, Why Aren’t They Following?
  • Beyond Limits
  • Top 7 Guaranteed Ways to Stress Yourself Out
  • Managing from the Inside Out
  • We’re All in This Together
  • Rewiring Yourself
  • Accelerated Learning and Development

“Greg gave a speech in Bremen Germany a few years ago as a keynote speaker for a Customer Service Conference. My customers told me, it was the best speech of the conference and maybe the best they’ve heard in the last few years. Unique, creative, interactive and fun…well done Greg!”

"Your organization provided a great service for the executive team, various departments, managers and facilitators at Apple Computer.
