I am a communication professor, writer, speaker, mentor, and consultant.
I founded the “art of servant communication.” It’s all about serving our audiences rather than just serving ourselves. You can follow my updates by subscribing to my blog or Tweets (@quentinschultze).
I earned a PhD from the Institute of Communications Research at the University of Illinois and eventually joined the faculty at Calvin College (Grand Rapids, MI), where I am the Arthur H. DeKruyter Chair and a Professor of Communication Arts and Sciences.
My numerous books include An Essential Guide to Public Speaking, which is used widely for teaching and mentoring people in the art of public speaking, Resume 101: A Student and Recent-Grad Guide to Crafting Resumes and Cover Letters that Land Jobs (the leading book on the topic), and the forthcoming 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’ve been quoted in many major media, including The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Fortune, the Chicago Tribune, USA Today, and many other publications. I’ve been interviewed by CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, and lots of radio and television stations.
I speak at and consult for businesses, non-profit organizations, trade associations, colleges and universities, and religious groups. I received the Presidential Award for Exemplary Teaching at Calvin College in 2000. You can read more about me on my LinkedIn site.
The “e” in “Schultze” is silent, by the way.
