"As a speaker, my philosophy is simple. Don't perform, just be real. Be honest. Be candid. Be personal. Be practical and helpful. Anyone can polish a performance, but very few can authentically inspire. That's what I do. People are starving for useful information, delivered honestly. Add in a few stories that elicit smiles and laughs, and all of a sudden learning becomes a blast." Dr. Todd Dewett
Todd has started an authenticity revolution with his straight talk, tattoos, and no-nonsense persona. He says, "I focus on authenticity and aspects of interpersonal relationships that drive professional success. I've observed every manner of organizational challenge. At the heart of every one of them are the same core issues: a need for more self-awareness, better communication, better rapport, and more kindness. In response, I've crafted stories and advice that illuminate a productive path forward. When I'm done with an audience, they not only leave believing that more is possible, but they know how to make it happen, and feel inspired to get started immediately."
