Wayne Schoeneberg is a nationally recognized professional public speaker, business coach and acclaimed trial attorney. He works with organizations that want their people to be confident, decisive and productive.
His style as a professional public speaker is to educate, inspire and entertain his audiences so they leave with an increased sense of confidence in their company, their careers and themselves.
Wayne has spoken across the country to businesses, associations and juries while achieving exceptional results in all three areas.
His presentations are created individually for each organization or event. He believes that one size does not fit all. Wayne requires that before each event he have a phone conference with the event organizer to determine the goals of the presentation and the theme of the meeting.
By using illustrations, anecdotes and metaphors Wayne draws the audience members into the presentation in a way that each individual understands how the material applies to them. Whether Wayne’s presentation as a professional speaker is a keynote, workshop or breakout he understands the principles of making the audience members feel as though he is talking directly to them.
Wayne worked his way through undergraduate school at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri working as a radio personality at a commercial radio station. He was so popular that every big-name music touring act that came to town hired Wayne to open the show.

After being admitted to the Bar he went into private practice where he built a very successful, high-profile practice.

Wayne is married to Rebecca Schoeneberg, an award winning Interior Designer. The two of them share a passion for travel and adventure. Wayne is a pilot, a parachutist (he figured it wouldn’t hurt to learn one if he were doing the other) a motorcyclist and a golfer. He doesn’t like to mention it, but he is a two-time cancer survivor.
He is truly an adventurer and lives life to the fullest each day.
