He realized at his own wedding that he was a gloriously horrible presenter…

... so he decided to improve… really improve.

He accepted every challenge, took classes galore, and put himself into situations where he could only “speak” his way out .

Some wonderful people helped him, and he learned and created unique, game-changing devices.

Buddy taught public speaking for Apple, and is a frequent lecturer on the subject at numerous universities in the US, South America and Europe.

Buddy loves to help innovators craft their stories, and deliver them in super-engaging ways to the press, investors, and clients.

He found with great speaking skills everything else goes better. Interviews were successful and talks for his Rotary club suddenly had positive impact.

He was an Air Force and international pilot with Pan Am and American Airlines, and is married to the incredible Holly, so together they make “Buddy Holly.”
