Program Descriptions

Imagine, 7, 70 or 700 of your leaders and/or teams fully engaged, interacting, laughing while learning AND experiencing new ways to have productive, speedy and fun Collaborations, more positive and generous Communications, while Creating results far beyond anyone’s expectations. The take-aways are used immediately and for years to come.

Inspiring an Awesome, Outrageous Legendary Customer Experience (starting with your internal customer) How do you know when your customers feel valued? How do you know when your employees feel valued??

How would it impact your company if you valued your internal customers as much as you did your external customers?

Using improv, we’ll come up with your own vision of what this EXPERIENCE will look and sound like for both the external AND internal customers.

How to Keep a Millennial Longer Than 6 weeks - It’s more than a ping pong table
How do you position your company to acquire and retain the best and the brightest employees? You become the best and the brightest place to work, making you the Employer of Choice. In this keynote/workshop through highly interactive exercises, we'll identify and define YOUR Culture. Not Google’s, not Zappos’. Yours. It's important to recognize that what Millennials want in the workplace is shared by the majority of your employees. Nobody graduated college says, “I can’t wait to be micro-managed...”

In this presentation you will experience how to:

1. Address, laugh and move beyond the generational stereotypes to authentic empathetic conversations.

2. Tap into dormant talent – to have ideas heard - more collaboration and innovation on-demand.

3. Trust and engage employees to implement their solutions and ideas.

4. Inspire an authentic culture that expresses the business goals through solution-focused communications.

And, for managers, we'll answer the question, "Do I have to treat everyone different?” As in all my keynotes and workshops, I use the application of improv which allows for more authenticity, spontaneity, and agility.

It’s What’s INSIDE that Counts (no really!)
No more thinking outside the box. (yippee) This highly interactive, entertaining presentation teaches you the process on how to unleash the Creative Genius INSIDE you and your organization. You'll begin with expressing your own creativity and break down the barriers that block unfettered innovative thinking and doing. You’ll leave with actions you can do right away for yourself and your group. Your conference or meeting with turn into a playground for Bold Possibilities, Generosity, and Highly Positive Communications.
