Keynotes & Workshops


Jude was the keynote speaker at our recent conference in Miami where he spoke about servant leadership. In a word, he “crushed” it. Jude not only had the highest scores among presenters for that event, but the highest we have seen among any event we've executed.


Jude has fantastic command of material and speaks to the audience with authenticity and a very resonant tone. He is highly effective because he uses references to which we can all relate."

Stanton Lewin, CEO at LKH&S
