President & Founder
Rommel Anacan (pronounced “Roh-mel Ana-kin” and yes, his last name is pronounced like Anakin Skywalker from "Star Wars") is the creative "genius" (he forced us to include the word "genius" in his bio, so we put quotes around the word...don't tell him) behind The Relationship Difference.
Rommel considers himself a professional storyteller and a problem-solver. He works with leading companies, organizations and people helping them solve the problems and overcome the challenges that prevent them from achieving their maximum potential. He does this by telling engaging, funny, entertaining, relatable and educational stories centered around a "Winning With People is the Heart of Success" message that has powerfully impacted thousands of people around the country.
Prior to launching The Relationship Difference Rommel had a successful career in management, sales and training spanning over 25 years-and he draws on this extensive experience to create dynamic educational workshops that he is known for nationwide.
Rommel's writings and articles have been featured and found in many national publications and websites and on his Relationship Difference blog. He is also a successful video producer and you may have heard his voice-over talents on over 20+ productions.
When he's not in "business mode" Rommel is an officer in the Civil Air Patrol-the volunteer Auxiliary of the United States Air Force, where he is an aircrew member and is the deputy commander of his squadron.
He is also a huge sports fan, loves his cowboy boots, feels free in the outdoors, enjoys watching Hallmark Channel movies (especially the Christmas ones!), and his faith is the central part of his life.
Rommel's hometown is Honolulu, Hawaii, lived in Colorado for five years and now lives in Orange County, California with his wife, daughter and Oliver-their cat! There are many ways to communicate with him, so please look for him on Twitter, Facebook, Linked In or just send him an email.
