Authors, Trainers & Speakers
Since meeting as classmates more than twenty years ago in a graduate school course about the power of stories told out loud, John and Tim have helped thousands of advocates and hundreds of organizations share their stories to increase awareness, educate, create change or raise funds.
Their clients are "ordinary" people and first-time speakers, CEOs, small and large nonprofits, and some of the best-known celebrities, media personalities and professional speakers in the world. John (Minneapolis) and Tim (New York) join forces whenever they can to recapture the rapture of their graduate school days.
