Performance is an art – the art of delivering one’s craft. 

Performance is also return on investment – delivery of the goods.

Form – and function.

Style – and value.

I deliver both. 


Unforgettably... and unapologetically.

"I've attended three Canadian Conventions of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers and four American Conventions of the National Speakers Association and I have to tell you that many of the seasoned pros could learn from you. Even the likes of Harvey Mackay, Brian Tracy, and Tom Hopkins.

Your talk was educational, enlightening, inspiring, and fun. You know your stuff inside out, you're passionate about it, and you know how to present it in an engaging way. BRAVO! And I was very impressed with the way you handled the Q & A period, especially the questions I'm sure you're not asked often. I'm looking forward to the pleasure, no, the experience of attending one of your talks again soon."

Daniel Saintjean, Author & Professional Speaker

"I am so grateful I attended your session. One of the best I have ever attended and perfect timing. My brain was just reeling with ideas. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING you said resonated with me to a tee. I am a CMA and a successful and entrepreneurial business executive, yet I am so not the typical stereotype of an accountant and have always felt I have something more to do. The true authentic brand, talents and passions seem to get pushed aside, but not this time. I bought my Idea Book on the way home from the session. I am going to crystallize my personal brand. I strongly believe in many of the things you stand for and you have given me the 'push' to do it. Thank you so much!"

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of speaker are you? 


I'm a content-based speaker. My best position in the speaker lineup at a conference is as a Day 2 opening Breakfast Concurrent Session: lots of hard-hitting content, delivered with great stories. Second best is as an individual breakout session (or three).


What if I don't see a topic on your list that meets my needs? 


The list above is just a sample of some of my most popular content. Based on our initial discussion and your target audience, I'm more than happy to create or customize a topic so it covers the specific content you would like to hear - at no additional charge.


What are your rates? 


Pricing is based on a standard daily rate plus travel expenses, and as the client you may use my time in whatever format will best meet your needs, whether you'd like me there for an hour, a full day, or anything in between (or beyond).


How do I book you to speak at my conference or event? 


For bookings or inquiries about pricing or dates please contact us and we'll email you back within 24 business hours.

I'm still vibrating after your presentation this morning at Business Day. Besides feeling a certain deja vu in that I think we share the same reading list, you absolutely blew me away with your presentation style and the rapport you were able to develop with the audience. Most impressive. I think the most significant praise I can give you is that I came away from your presentation this morning with a lot to think about. Now I'm a guy who thinks A LOT without any stimulation, so it takes a lot for someone to rock my world. But you certainly did."

“I recently had the opportunity to hear both Krista Clive-Smith and Brian Rashid, and I thought they were two of the best speakers I have had the opportunity to hear. The feedback from the audience was off the charts.  People were raving about the programs afterwards, and based on the amount of discussion -- they all wanted more."
