Keynote Speaking & Workshops
Every audience and event coordinator can count on a dynamic experience combining Dennis’ experiences as an international trainer, keynote speaker, and corporate coach. Dennis is committed to delivering specific, actionable ideas to impact today’s progressive leadership conferences, health care organizations, or sales meetings.
Need a speaker for your event?
I understand the challenge of finding just the right speaker for your event. In a prior role, I was responsible for scheduling speakers for hundreds of training events. I know the success of your event comes down to the quality of the speakers. If they do great, you look great. If they are mediocre, it makes your job harder. If you need a speaker who can energize your audience and teach them practical material that they can use right away, I believe I’m your guy. My goal? To be the easiest speaker you’ve ever worked with.
…If your audience of leaders need to produce results through people….
…If they spend time putting out fires caused by team drama…
…And they want practical tools to accomplishing more in less time…
…then I just might be the speaker you’re looking for.

I have dozens of conversations every year with mostly very smart people who teach me extraordinary things. One of my favorites is Dennis McIntee, author of the book “The 8 Qualities of Drama Free Teams”. He has taught me more about leading teams and growing my business than just about anyone else I know.
I wanted to thank you for your help with our Spring Education Conference. The three education sessions you provided were uplifting, enlightening, and informative. You presented in a manner that was both humorous and entertaining, while still getting your message across to the entire audience. That’s a hard combination to achieve, but you did it very well.
The feedback from our audience was great! You would be a huge asset to any group who is looking for a funny, insightful, passionate speaker. Your ability to connect to a variety of personalities and ages is a true gift!
I appreciate all your help and I’m looking forward to working with you again someday,
