You can’t light a fire without a spark” – Bruce Springsteen

"Leaders, presenters, trainers – all are aiming to ignite a fire in the hearts and minds of others: the fire of vision, the fire of products or ideas, the fire of learning. I want to spark this passion in my participants, empowering and inspiring them to turn their visions into reality for their companies, their clients and themselves.”
