Since 2004, Tom has trained over 850,000 leaders around the US and the world including England, South Korea, Indonesia, and Bermuda on how to build a Culture of Connection™ within their organization.


Tom has trained leaders at some of the largest companies in the world such as Coca Cola, Pfizer, Apple, and Nike. Through his speaking, he holds an unprecedented 7 National Speaking Titles from APCA. He is a TEDx speaker, held a Guinness World Record, and he sat on the boards for both the NYC Entrepreneurs’ Organization for 5 years and the NYC National Speaker’s Associating for two years.


Tom’s award winning program, Dance Floor Theory™, is recognized as the standard best practice for increasing community member engagement and retention rates.

And on a personal note, Tom lives just outside of New Year City, was named after a cat, was on a reality show on NBC, was featured on the Tofurky box, got kicked off the Oprah Winfrey show, and loves peanut butter so much that he filed paper work to start a festival in NYC called the NYC Peanut Butter Jam.
