Alan’s current speaking activities include keynote speeches at large conferences, members-only groups (like Vistage), and fulfilling requests to speak about his new book: THE CONNECTION CHALLENGE™: HOW EXECUTIVES CREATE POWER and POSSIBILITY in the AGE of DISTRACTION


Connecting with any group brings the conversation to a whole new level. Although the main part of any speaker engagement is lecture, it is essential to challenge and engage people into the conversation directly in a large or small group. I will help individuals to navigate their own stories within the larger group. Key speaking topics focus on leadership and connection.

Which topics speak to yoU and your organization?


Taking the connection challenge


The Seven Levels of connection energy


how to connect in a disconnected world


The connection killers

These speaking engagements can be customized or adapted as needed

See my workshop and seminars descriptions for more details on how I approach some of these topics

It was a great pleasure to have worked with Alan Cohen, who presented the topic of Emotional Intelligence for Leaders and Teams to our special interest group within the Society for Human Resources Management. Alan was highly engaging, informative, and entertaining. He is a great speaker and a pleasure to collaborate with. Alan knows how to create a warm, inspiring, and interactive setting for a talk. The audience left with valuable knowledge on the topic of Emotional Intelligence.
I recommend him highly to speak at your next event.
