Jeff Black, THE Black Sheep
Founder & Lead Consultant

“In the beginning, Jeff Black was nothing but pure entertainment, but near the end of his session, I realized he actually does have a little substance.”

(Past Black Sheep Participant)

With tongue firmly implanted in cheek, Jeff Black takes great pride in the above statement, because no one wants to sit through a training program or keynote speech and be bored out of their minds. There are enough PowerPoint presentations to accomplish that. People want to learn executive presence and communication strategies they can implement when they walk out of the room. They want to be engaged … and yes, sometimes they want to be entertained.
