About the Speakers

Skip Weisman

Skip Weisman, The Leadership & Workplace Communication Expert, spent the first 20-years of his career serving as CEO for five different professional baseball franchises.

Skip was promoted to CEO of his first baseball team at just 26 and the leadership growing pains he fought through are fodder for the leadership communication lessons his audience experience in his talks.

During his career Skip annually managed multiple projects getting his teams and his stadiums ready for each season. His most challenging and rewarding project management experience was working on a baseball stadium construction project that opened a 4,500 seat stadium in just 71-days from the first shovel in the ground.

Since 2001 Skip has been working with organizational leaders, and their teams, in virtually every industry to create high-performance results by transforming interpersonal communication skills.

Since 2011 and the release of his signature white paper report, The 7 Deadliest Sins of Leadership & Workplace Communication, he has presented to more than 10,000 people at national and international conferences for the Project Management Institute, The Society for Human Resource Management and many business and trade organizations across the United States and Canada.
