Initiative One Leadership Training Event


Engage. Inspire. Challenge.

That’s what a great keynote speaker should do. It’s about great content, thought-provoking questions and valuable insights. Part teaching. Part engaging—and entertaining—storytelling. With a speaker from InitiativeOne, that’s what you’ll bring to your event. Our team of speakers combine story and strategy to reach deep into the hearts of your audience. Presentations are interactive and engaging, designed to inform, entertain and inspire your team or event attendees to make positive change in their leadership and lives.

Dr. Fred, Founder of InitiativeOne, is a riveting and compelling speaker, capable of moving an audience to deep reflection and action long after an event has concluded. Over a long career, Fred has coached, challenged and inspired executives from Fortune 500 companies, NFL head coaches, and leaders across nearly every industry. Fred is passionate about equipping leaders to better understand themselves and their teams—and empowering them to be “on-purpose” leaders defined not by their position, but by their impact in the lives of others.
