More About Me

For 20 years, I’ve worked with the world’s leading attorneys and corporate executives to unlock the value of clear communication.

I crafted the presentations that helped persuade a jury to award a $253 million verdict to the plaintiff in the nation’s first Vioxx trial in 2005, which Fortune magazine called “frighteningly powerful.”

My bestselling book Beyond Bullet Points (published by Microsoft Press) was named a Best Book of 2007 by the editors of, and has been published in four editions and translated into a dozen languages including Chinese, Korean, and Russian.

The book expands on a communications approach I teach internationally at top law firms, government agencies, business schools and corporations, including Sony, Chevron, Toyota, Del Monte, Nestlé, Deloitte, BBDO, The NPD Group, Ipsos, Facebook, Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Intel, Microsoft, the American Bar Association and the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal.

My work has been featured in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, and Fox News.
