Thought Leaders

To ascend in your career or use your voice & passion to help change the world, you may need help clarifying "What I am really here to say?" and "How can I say it in a way that can have the most impact?" 

That's why as a member of my program, I will teach you how to:

  • Position yourself as a thought leader to advance in your career
  • Hone your “Big Idea”
  • Write & Deliver a TED level talk, keynote or book.
  • Develop executive presence and an authentic, powerful voice
  • Be concise on the fly for panel interviews, podcasts and more.



"Tom Burke and I have been working together for close to two years now. He has made my public presentation skills much, much better. In everything from body posture and hand movement to inflection and tone, he has detailed, subtle and amazing insight on how I can be better. More than everything else, Tom has taught me to really "feel" what I say in a way that makes my presentations genuine, exciting and appealing. (That he can do this with someone who would rather write software or poetry than speak to 5000 people is a further testament to his skill and ability.) Thank you, Tom! "
