Our team of speakers and facilitators, handpicked by Simon Sinek, who share our vision of a more inspired, safe and fulfilled world and help you make it a reality.
Peter wakes up every day to enable others to be extraordinary in what they do. He believes we create greater performance when we connect people to a higher, common purpose, a Why. When a team is united by their Why, people feel more fulfilled and team members are willing give a high level of discretionary effort, resulting in a more innovative, resilient and sustainable organization.
Everything David does is designed to propel people toward a better version of themselves, so they can more meaningfully touch the lives of others. David joined the Start With Why team in 2009. David travels internationally, helping people shift their perceptions about the reason their organizations really exist, what leadership is, and how human biology plays into it all.
Heath wakes up to connect and inspire with others so that others can rise. Fascinated by the intangibles that strengthen relationships and help take performance to the next level, his work is at the intersection of leadership, influence and trust. When we’re clear about why we’re here, where we’re going, who we serve and how we’re getting there, people start to feel valued and fulfilled.
Everything Matt does is designed to catalyze growth in others. He’s obsessed with exploring the future of work and what’s possible when organizations sit on the foundation of a strong, values based culture. As a millennial and former college athlete, Matt has an exceptional ability to relate concepts across his various life experiences, allowing him to connect with audiences across the board.
Jen leverages her background in the arts to encourage creative thinking and imagination, so that others can cultivate new ideas and share them with the world. Several years ago, she united with Simon and began helping people across many different industries bring their Why to life and make a greater impact with their work.
Matt draws on his 20 years of leadership experience as a former US Air Force Officer to help organizations create cultures that put people first. Currently, as Partner at the Barry-Wehmiller Leadership Institute, the foundation of his teachings are a combination of his US Air Force leadership experience and the people-centric leadership tools developed by the Barry-Wehmiller Leadership Institute.
Bob Chapman imagines a world where every person matters — a world full of caring work environments in which people can realize their gifts, apply and develop their talents, and feel a genuine sense of fulfillment for their contributions. Bob imagines these things because he knows they exist. They exist because his commitment to people-centric leadership made them a reality at Barry-Wehmiller Companies where he is chairman and CEO.
Monique is committed to making sure that those around her live a life full of meaningful experiences. She dedicates much time and effort to making sure every detail is sorted, every problem finds a solution, and every person understands how important their role is in making great things come to life.
