    (R)evolutionary Future Skills Keynotes

    I am an on-going learner. For over 20 years I have researched and participated in many human potential programs for my personal self-improvement and I’ve also researched the latest techniques for improving leadership performance. From my research and personal experience I have found that the work of Dr. Donald Epstein is extremely advanced and includes the most integrated concepts and teachings that I have discovered and as such I have put many of them into practice both personally and corporately.

    Epstein Technologies is the accumulation of the research, theories and models created by Dr. Epstein and have been validated by numerous Universities. Dr. Epstein’s work has helped thousands of people globally improve their health, personal well-being and ultimate success. We have worked in collaboration with Dr. Epstein and Epstein Technologies for 2 years. Using my corporate leadership expertise I had the privilege of writing and co-developing the extraordinary programs that now bring Dr. Epstein’s concepts and applications to the business world. The Epstein Technologies Corporate Programs have been developed for delivery in the form of Keynotes, Seminars and Training programs. Please contact me for more information.
