About the Speaker

Tom Pfeifer

Consistent Voice Communications
Managing Partner

Tom Pfeifer may not have been born to be a writer, but he has been carrying a pad of paper and writing utensils in his pockets since he was seven years old.

After collecting a shoebox full of rejection slips for a series of failed short stories, Tom embarked on a 15-year journalism career in Southern California, where he won awards from The Associated Press, United Press International, and others for individual writing and group coverage. During his journalistic career, he stood on a dam that was in danger of collapsing, landed in a helicopter on a warship rocking in the Pacific Ocean, crawled through a warehouse as aftershocks from the Northridge Earthquake shook the ground violently, walked on petroleum-stained rocks in Alaska’s Prince William Sound in the wake of the Exxon Valdez disaster, and witnessed five living presidents dedicate Ronald Reagan’s presidential library.

He then moved to the nation’s capital to serve as a congressman’s press secretary and communications director. There, he communicated his boss’s role in the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, the aftermath of 9/11, numerous terrorism hearings, and the release of journalist James Foley from Libya strongman Moammar Ghadafi.

In September 2013, he founded Consistent Voice Communications, LLC, where he serves as Managing Partner and helps small businesses, associations, and individuals Communicate for Success! through clear, concise, and consistent messaging.

As a congressional communicator, Pfeifer wrote numerous speeches—for other people. But he was too terrified to stand before an audience himself and try to say anything coherent. He joined a Toastmasters club in March 2012, knowing he would have to speak before groups as an entrepreneur. Now he speaks regularly on effective communication techniques. His book, Write It, Speak It, is scheduled to be published in spring 2016. You can reach him at Tom@YourConsistentVoice.com
