Reaching Your Next Summit!
Manley is recognized as an award winning international keynote speaker and business leader, author, published outdoor adventure photographer and professional musician. He served two terms as the President of the National Speakers Association, St. Louis chapter.
Leveraging more than twenty years of business, professional speaking and adventure experience, he helps professionals breakthrough mindsets to step up and reach their next summit. As a result of his work, people have more focus, courage, commitment and momentum.
In fact he wrote a book titled, Reaching Your Next Summit! 9 Vertical Lessons to Lead with More Impact.
During Manley’s eleven years with Build-A-Bear Workshop, his leadership direction helped take the revolutionary retail concept from 40 stores to over 400 worldwide, realizing revenue growth from 55 million to over 474 million, and a successful IPO on the NYSE. He built an award winning reputation for implementing business solutions and support that produced measurable results every day. Manley’s leadership influence contributed to a workplace culture that landed Build-A-Bear on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® List four years in a row.
It is this expertise that he shares by applying lessons learned in business and adventures to life’s daily challenges. The authentic, sincere and deep interpersonal connection Manley makes with your audience enables him to deliver practical and proven content to help organizations maximize their opportunities and develop their most valuable asset, their employees. Through custom developed programs and support ranging from 60 minutes to 12 months, he will leave you with many actionable techniques, frameworks, and insights. Most importantly, he can engage your organization in a way that sustains true results that last well beyond the presentation, and ultimately affect long term change.
Manley’s inspirational keynotes are brought to life through his national geographic photography and riveting stories culminating from a lifetime of adventure through 25 countries, to over 400 outdoor destinations. Manley vividly shares compelling lessons from his adventure and leadership experiences in a way that allows you to relate to your mountains. He will have you hanging beside him surviving in the Himalayas, struggling to communicate in Uzbekistan, and immediately transfer the experience to moving you forward in your courageous efforts.
Manley will challenge your mindset, arm you with ideas you can use, and inspire you to action.
On a personal note, he likes to sleep on the side of mountains. More shocking is that his wife has been putting up with that for more than two decades, and his two teens still kiss him on the cheek in front of their friends.
Are you and your team members simply showing up everyday, or are they stepping up?
Professionals often struggle to deliver more value under tightening budget constraints and rising expectations. Add the complications of regulations, engaging a multi-generational work force, constantly shifting technology, and the balance of personal life needs; and you have a serious challenge.

When organizations are asked how their individual teams could improve their overall impact on the business, a top response is almost always communication.
Exceptional business professionals understand the fundamental importance of communication skills; however, most professionals do not have an effective developmental path or the available resources to ensure that they and their teams are consistently improving their communication skills. If you can’t connect with one another or with the business as a whole, how can you possibly hope to communicate effectively with clients and customers?
Communication skills are the secret weapon of successful professionals, but it doesn’t have to remain a secret anymore. Arm yourself with a major advantage that will separate your team from the pack, ensure that you connect with your organization, and help you exceed expectations by constantly delivering high-quality results.
