Speaking Demo Reel


“Vernon is one of the best podcast hosts I’ve come across as a guest expert.  What sets him apart is his ability to deep dive into questions and ask guest the things other hosts won’t.” Shola Abidoye – Convertport

Vernon Ross is a very well spoken, engaging and a warm speaker. He has a captivating presence and exudes confidence, strength and determination.  I would highly recommend Vernon as a speaker, panelist or emcee for any future event. And, will be asking him to come back again next year given is huge presence and impact on the overall success of my conference.”  Perry Drake – Assistant Professor, College of Business, University of Missouri – St. Louis

What to Expect from Me

My goal when interacting with an audience is to deliver information in a way that’s fun, engaging and motivates your team to take action after the event.

  • A Quick Response to emails and phone calls. Your time is valuable.
  • Personal Attention To provide your audience with the most value I need to understand expectations.  So we spend as much time as you need to flesh out the all the details for your event.
  • Event Promotion Utilizing my entire network including my podcast and social media channels Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook etc. I have an active and engaged network and email list.
  • Passionate delivery I’m totally in love with sharing relevant information with an audience.  None of the advice I give is based on concepts of just research.  I deliver talks based on my personal real life experience.
  • The experience I have presented on stages from coast to coast across the United States with audiences ranging from an intimate 50 attendees to well over 1000. Large or small, I can inspire my audience to take action.
  • Timely follow-up I’m sure you’ve heard the fortune is in the follow-up.  I’ll always follow up with you to find out what you loved and what your audience may want more of.
