Work With Me

Wish other people had an “Aha!” moment when they heard your message?

Want to *wow* with a TED-worthy presentation?

Want to get your team on the same page?

Let’s talk.

We’ve been thinking about numbers in the wrong way: they’re a foreign language—and need to be translated.

I wrote the guidebook for that with Chip Heath, coauthor of Switch and Made to Stick.1My workshops? Better and not $40,000.

I started getting people excited about numbers nearly 20 years ago, teaching math at a middle school in New Orleans with Teach For America.

I work with:

  • Strategists and management to craft messages that resonate between departments
  • Financial planners to discuss plans for clients
  • Small business groups and marketing departments to perfect their messaging
  • Entrepreneurs pitching VCs
  • Nonprofits to increase fundraising efficiency
  • Sales teams
  • Teachers, journalists, writers, and scientists

Option 1: Workshops

The classic 90-minute presentation: you’ll get a master class on how to translate numbers into English.

My new class, Using Numbers to Nudge, is specifically for anyone tired of wondering why their numbers aren’t inspiring others to take action. Email me.

Option 2: Number Makeovers

Do you have a report, presentation, or paper? Pressed for time? I’ll do the heavy lifting.

Option 3: Coaching

Want me to give you ongoing guidance? Reach out; email me. Or, if you’re ready:
