Welcome to One Degree Connect. I bring more than 20 years of award-winning success in marketing, fundraising, and worldwide speaking. Beyond the business world, I am a professional magician, performing across eight countries.
At One Degree Connect, I help professionals discover the power of “one degree” strategies to connect three critical factors for success: Team, Brand, and Cause.
The Power of Three
Today’s consumers are looking for more than great products. They want to feel connected to you, your brand promise, and your social values.
This is why it’s so vital to connect your TEAM, BRAND, and CAUSE. This triad creates a powerful framework for success in every facet of your organization. I guide teams through pivotal “one degree” strategies to bring all three areas into synergistic alignment.
The One Degree Difference
Just as heating water from 211 to 212˚ takes it to the boiling point, even a one degree shift can create extraordinary possibilities. In my international-selling book One Degree, I share creative insight on how small changes can create amazing impact and stronger connections with others. At One Degree Connect, I help you uncover pivotal one degree strategies to connect the power of team, brand, and cause.
Practical and Powerful Strategies
One Degree Connect elevates teams by sharing business strategies that are practical and powerful. I call these pivotal refinements “one degree” strategies. They combine real world ideology, refreshing clarity, and can be put into action immediately. From 30-minute keynotes to full-day retreats, I share these strategies in a way that educates, entertains, and energizes teams.
