A two-time world champion of public speaking finalist for Toastmasters International, Rory has shared his compelling "Take the Stairs" message on the same stage as John Maxwell, David Allen, Keith Ferrazzi and he has done special programs for both Zig Ziglar, and for Dave Ramsey’s companies.

As a keynote speaker, Rory is adept at making audiences laugh, while also causing an immediate change in their behavior. Unfortunately the impact that some motivational speakers have ends at the conclusion of their speech, which is why Rory’s memorable and actionable Take the Stairs message is appealing to companies and organizations. Not only is there an immediate physical change in the behavior of audiences, exhibited in their desire to take the stairs, but more importantly, there is a noticeable psychological change that causes them to implement more self-discipline into their life and work.
It is this unique combination that makes Rory’s presentation create both a return on investment and a lasting impression on everyone who attends the meeting.
