Quentin Schultze Bio
I write, speak, and consult about communicating well. Watch for my forthcoming book, 30 Days to Great Communication for Servant Leaders. I will be publishing excerpts on this website. Please subscribe to this blog (note the email subscription link in the left column of each page) and my Tweets (@quentinschultze) to receive communication tips.
I earned a PhD from the Institute of Communications Research at the University of Illinois in Urbana–Champaign and taught at Drake University before joining the faculty at Calvin College, where I served until 2015 as the Arthur H. DeKruyter Chair and a Professor of Communication Arts and Sciences. I received the Presidential Award for Exemplary Teaching in 2000. I lead master-teaching workshops for colleges and universities.
Along the way I have consulted on communication projects for many nonprofit and for-profit organizations. I mentor professionals about their interpersonal (person-to-person), and public communication, including their public speaking. I also conduct communication workshops for employees of small to large organizations.
My numerous books include An Essential Guide to Public Speaking, Résumé 101: A Student and Recent-Grad Guide to Crafting Résumés and Cover Letters that Land Jobs, and most recently An Essential Guide to Interpersonal Communication. My scholarly publications have appeared in several dozen journals. I’ve written over a hundred articles for general-interest periodicals.
I have been quoted in many major media such as The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Fortune, the Chicago Tribune, USA Today. I’ve been interviewed by CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, and numerous radio and television stations.

The “e” in “Schultze” is silent, by the way.
