Jeff’s focus today…his goal for you… was established during his successful and storied career in television news.
It’s a focus that led viewers to intentionally pause and welcome him nightly into the intimacy of their homes and lives. Not occasionally, but for decades.
Jeff’s goal is that each encounter, with each group, with each person, leaves them with the sense of having made a new, trusted and caring friend; one whose insights gift them with renewed confidence, an expanded sense of possibility, and strengthened personal commitment. And that each encounter is a blend of discovery, adventure and fun!

“The event went very well, largely because Jeff is a highly accomplished public speaker. He was efficient and friendly in the planning and coordination of the event, and quick and interesting and funny on stage. He's charismatic and immediately likable as a speaker.“
-Jonathan White/White Construction
“Jeff offers that rare combination of in-depth knowledge, humor, and humility. He clearly finds great joy in sharing his scientific experience and passion with the public and is equally at home in front of the camera and up on stage. I cannot imagine a more professional - and just plain enjoyable—person to collaborate with on any public speaking or production project.”
