Does your audience need to level up or push through challenges?

The perfect blend of engaging storytelling and practical, immediately actionable advice

How many times have you hired a speaker who is entertaining, but didn’t give any practical advice for your audience?

Or perhaps you’ve worked with someone who gave amazing advice, but nearly bored your audience to sleep.

What if you could have the best of both worlds?

Terry believes that resilience isn’t solely about being able to endure tough situations. It also provides you with the courage to tackle bigger challenges. Because you know that even if you fail, you will survive, and that unshakeable confidence unleashes motivation and innovation which can be life-changing.

His strategies and tools help people build not just their resilience but their revenue and online reputation as well. Terry gives audiences tangible takeaways through engaging storytelling, interactive presentations and a roadmap to implement what they’ve learned.

In addition to delivering keynotes or joining in on fireside chats, he is also a talented emcee and experienced celebrity interviewer who has profiled everyone from Shaquille O’Neal to Daymond John.

FORGE Forward

How to Seize Opportunities, Overcome Setbacks, and Perform at Your Highest Level

Do you feel like your team or community would be more effective if they could focus their thoughts on creating solutions as opposed to being intimidated by challenges?


This is the same framework I’ve personally used to help organizations solve:

  • Codependency on management 
  • Lack of innovation or motivation
  • Uncertainty about strategy or the future
  • Interpersonal issues between external and internal stakeholders

Imagine seeing these problems quickly disappear because your team is more:

  • Creative
  • Innovative
  • Collaborative
  • Forward thinking

But this isn’t just a motivational talk that will eventually wear off.

Instead, each participant will gain access to a suite of customizable tools that will help them better navigate through challenges and embrace opportunities going forward. 

If you like the sound of this, and are ready to see your attendees enjoy a practical, interactive, learning experience, I’d love to talk about speaking at your next event.

Terry Visited the University of Buffalo this March. He spoke to a few hundred students about making connections, growing his business and how to go forward from life’s hardships. His personal story was very inspiring, and he really has a way with connecting to his student audience. His casual but professional presentation style is awesome and I believe there is a lot to learn and take in from Terry.

When I first met Terry, you could easily see not only how much expertise he has in his field of work, but also how much passion he has for it. Watching him talk on the main stage amplified that to the max in such a bright way that did nothing but positively impact the audience he spoke to. His ability to showcase vulnerability, knowledge, confidence, and creativity was so inspiring to watch!
