The leading business communications expert, Ben Decker bridges the gap between executive leaders and their teams. As CEO of Decker Communications, Inc., he has worked with hundreds of leaders in Fortune 500 companies to create and implement communications solutions that are practical, direct, and attainable.
Renowned as a speaker’s speaker, Ben regularly addresses large audiences on the importance of creating a communication experience, developing executive presence, and the communications of a leader. He has been featured at large conferences and kickoffs for companies such as Marriott, Robert Half International, Hewlett-Packard, Million Dollar Roundtable, CHRISTUS Health, and Exponent.
Ben also coaches C-level executives from major organizations, including Charles Schwab, McKesson, Cisco, Bacardi, U.S. Coast Guard, JPMorgan Chase, AT&T, and Kaiser Permanente, as well as start-ups and portfolio companies seeking to raise capital. Ben’s prior experience and success in sales and sales management in the telecommunications and surgical industries validated the importance of communicating effectively, even in the briefest interactions.
Ben has been steeped in the Decker Method his entire life. Early in his “career,” he remembers being videotaped prior to his junior high book reports. In hindsight, he can certainly see the value of it, but the jury is still out on whether or not he’ll subject his own three boys to the same. Family time is his most important treasure, and he’s always protecting the calendar to spend time with his and Kelly’s three sons, Jackson, Joseph, and Christopher. Ben holds a BS in psychology from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
