Welcome to One Degree Connect. I’ve dedicated my career to growing brands, advancing causes, and building strong teams. Beyond the business world, I am a global speaker and professional magician, inspiring thousands of people across ten countries.
I help professionals discover the power of “one degree” strategies to connect three critical factors for success: Team, Brand, and Cause.
The One Degree Difference
At One Degree Connect, I help you uncover pivotal one degree strategies to connect the power of team, brand, and cause. Just as heating water from 211 to 212˚ takes it to the boiling point, even a one degree shift can create extraordinary possibilities. It’s a topic I cover extensively in my book One Degree, and in my travels across ten countries. Success is closer than we think…just one degree away.
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. I help you bring all three areas into synergistic alignment for a a powerful framework for success.
