Are you a publisher? Do you provide training materials?
Are you reaching out to students, teachers, business professionals
and people who simply want to improve their lives?
You probably know a lot about your business.
But I’ll bet
you I can help bring a whole new approach to what you offer. Why?
Because I’ve done it before. Here’s the key: you could
hire more people that are exactly like you’ve already got,
but that won’t help you break out into the next level. As
an outsider with a rich history of success in business, I’m
a very fast learner of technology and the unique aspects of various
companies. By hiring my talents, you’ll be bringing in fresh,
new ideas that will shake up (in a good way) the imaginations and
goals of you and your employees.
Want proof? For starters, check out my Portfolio
page. It will give case histories of numerous innovative thinking
and services. And shown below are a dozen or more examples of my
work, complete with 60-second video clips from some of my many
productions; these will open to stream in Win Media Player.
I not only generate ideas, but sell the
concepts and teach and train people in the implementation. Got
a complicated subject? I specialize in turning complicated technological
concepts into simple examples that people can quickly grasp. My
multi-media classes include feeds from miniature video cameras
tucked into places that show the inside workings of mechanical
and electronic devices.

There is no tougher audience than a jury
of 12 people who think the “big company” should
pay the poor little guy. In 13 trials and 36 depositions,
I was not only the company’s prime expert witness,
but also the official company representative. A few
times, we lost. Sometimes, I recommended we settle
quickly and fairly with the plaintiff. But most of
the times, we won. This role required honest persuasion,
expert knowledge, a thorough appreciation for the points
of views of others, and unquestioned integrity.
