All of Carl’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Carl’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Business

I spent 25 years assuming top management positions in the Travel Industry including Director of Marketing and Education with Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Regional Director for Trade Wind Tours and VP Marketing with Traveling Times. After that I became an independent business owner. Currently, I am VP of BDPInc., an international manufacturer of construction related materials. Prior to that, I've owned my own businesses in the Communications Industry and Financial/Foreign Currency Industry. This, along with acquiring solid skills as a public speaker (having tutored in this for many years), has resulted in dynamic business practices and results. Since each business requires individual attention regarding specific needs, I bring experience in various industries offering the student a multifaceted approach to making individual business decisions.

Marketing

From my early days in the Travel Industry (over 25 years) until my current involvement in the Construction/Manufacturing Industry, Marketing has always been my primary focus. Having assumed the position of either Vice President or Director of Marketing for several national companies, including the Travel Industry, Communications Industry, and the Construction/Manufacturing Industry, thorough study and implementation of marketing concepts have and always will be a primary focus of my business life. Unlike the popular thought that good marketing is nothing more than a two martini lunch with plans drawn on a napkin, an infinite amount of planning must precede any sales campaign - for any industry. I have the creative mind, the entrepreneurial drive, the leadership capabilities and the public speaking expertise (have tutored in this area for many years),to assist anyone in their marketing direction and needs.

Public Speaking

Public speaking can be learned…and learned effectively. I have the practical experience in this area to relate to every day circumstances from addressing church congregations, leading service club meetings, conducting national sales gatherings, playing to thousands in international concert/theatrical settings, as well as being a voice-over professional. I also have the training, incorporating music, speech the theater education beginning in High school and extending through intense training at the University of Wisconsin. In terms of actual hands-on training, I have been involved as head trainer for two separate national industries in making presentations to both the public and members of the American Institute of Architects. In this context, I have utilized in person instruction as well as video feedback in my training methods in order to teach staff members to make similar presentations.

Every student enters the world of public speaking at a different level. It doesn’t matter whether in high school or a retiree, the tutoring method is always individually personalized – taking the student where he/she is – addressing the practical every-day circumstance in which they’re involved – and building upon their strengths. Time will be split between the understanding/analysis of the written word, its subsequent interpretation, and the actual vocal and body language techniques that are incorporated to convey the intended meaning. Included in the curriculum will be “Addressing and overcoming stage fright”, “Active listening to oneself during the presentation”, “Relaxation techniques”, “Improving voice quality”, “How to effectively modulate vocal tone, rhythm and pitch variation”, “How not to be boring”, “Effective eye contact”, and “How to make certain your audience is listening.” Additional emphasis will be placed on extemporaneous speaking if desired.

Writing

My writing abilities, while certainly re-enforced through higher education, only came into fruition when entering the business world. Since then, considerable experience has be achieved in writing business models, advertising scripts, news scripts, and journalism articles for a national publication. I have also been responsible for newsletter composition and design in several different industries, along with several website design projects.
