Angus Knows Events

You’re in charge of an important event. You need an excellent experience for your attendees - you MUST have speakers that can share a message that’s smart, well constructed, and has impact.

I've been in your shoes, having personally organized over 200 live events - including programs at Disney, Whole Foods, Polycom, and Autodesk - I completely understand the needs of event managers like yourself.

Even better, I know the science of communicating effectively.

I spoke at corporate headquarters for Walmart, Coke, Hallmark and Swisscom and more. In addition, I led career development events at NASA Space and Rocket Center and the US Missile Defense Agency.

Having trained with Monster.com, my approval ranking topped in their Top 5% of speakers.

I know you're bored to death will dull speakers. You need someone to disarm and engage your top-level executives. You want people leaving your event inspired and energized. 

That's the part I want to help you with. I want to make you and your event shine.

Angus Knows People

When Angus takes the stage, his first goal is to disarm your audience. Pulling down emotional and psychological walls, he establishes trust and returns humanity to the room - he causes people to feel safe. Suddenly, real issues, conversations, and connections are possible.

This is his superpower.

He understands authenticity and vulnerability because he’s experienced life’s gut punches - lost businesses, addiction, and divorce.

Angus' story is the product of workaholism, ego, addiction, limiting beliefs, and low self-worth. He believes that from the place of brokenness comes beauty.

This is is especially true of entrepreneurial and corporate life.

Angus brings a truthfulness.

He communicates a humanity to the workplace, and re-connects people to the soul of business - people, relationship, respect, trust, and effective communication.

With studies in psychology and a high emotional IQ, Angus works as an executive coach, facilitator, and conflict resolution specialist.
