Thom Singer's first job was a busboy at "The Big Yellow House Restaurant" in Southern California. It was in this role that he discovered the importance of customizing his work for whomever he had the honor to serve. From the vast number of customers who dined in the restaurant, to the three or four wait-staff whom he helped each night, Thom realized that you have to make personal connections and find ways to relate differently to each audience if you want to unlock your potential.
Having worked as business growth keynote speaker and professional master of ceremonies for almost ten years, he has become an advocate for creating strong experiences for conference attendees. He sees the role of a speaker as more than a commodity that fills a space in the agenda. He believes that the speakers set the tone for the whole event, and he takes his job very seriously.
In today's distracted work environment there is a disconnect between social media "likes", "links", "shares" and "follows" and real meaningful business connections. Thom's work centers around helping people get back to the basics of relationships that lead to better opportunities and more sales. He focuses on the importance of helping everyone get closer to their own potential, and that of their organization.
He has authored twelve books and is conducting ongoing research on how people feel about their potential and the results they achieve. Many believe they can do more in their work and personal life, but have encountered roadblocks that hold them back. As a business growth speaker he encourages audiences to look closely at their own potential and to create a pathway toward achieving more.
As the host of the popular “Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do” podcast (Named a top podcast for entrepreneurs to follow in 2018 - Inc.com), Thom interviews business leaders, entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, and others who possess an extra dose of the entrepreneurial spirit. The information complied from these compelling interviews is shared with his clients, as he challenges people to be more engaged and enthusiastic in all their actions.
Thom earned the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation in 2014. The Certified Speaking Professional designation, established in 1980, is the speaking industry’s international measure of professional platform skill. The CSP designation is conferred by the National Speakers Association (NSA) only on those speakers who have earned it by meeting strict qualifying criteria. The letters CSP following a speaker’s name identify that speaker as a speaking professional with a proven track record for understanding and delivering value from the platform.
After being a couch potato for most of his life, Thom is now an avid runner and completed his first half-marathon in 2017.
