Recently, Claire Berger, an extremely successful keynote speaker from Eagles Talent Speakers Bureau, delivered a sensational presentation for the members of The Woodlands Development Company to inspire participants to actively involve themselves in finding renewed joy and happiness within their profession.
The Vision of The Woodlands:
This group has studied other communities across the country and the challenges they faced, and saw the need for a thoughtfully planned community where families and businesses could live in harmony with nature. In 1974, The Woodlands was born and has thrived over the years, through upturns and downturns, to become one of America’s largest and most successful master-planned communities. The Woodlands Development Company guides the development of The Woodlands and keeps the vision intact.
Challenges of Putting Together a Planned Community:
Planned Community audiences are filled with successful real estate developers, brokers, agents, financiers, city planners, politicians and private citizens. Together, these exceptional people have to work together to build and create a community through impressive home building, public spaces, community advocacy and commercial real estate development. This is a relentlessly grueling undertaking that often challenges even those most optimistic to succeed in this uncertain employment and real estate era.
Here’s a recent ‘TRENDING NOW’ Skype Video Interview Claire Berger did with Sheldon Senek of Eagles Talent Speakers Bureau talking specifically how she’s able to help planned community groups.
About Claire Berger.
Claire’s started at The Second City, the legendary improvisational theater. She became a successful stand-up comedian and radio talk show host. She then became a hugely successful warm-up comedian for over 65 televisions shows including Seinfeld, The Ellen Show, Friends, and Murphy Brown. From there, Claire became an insightful host of HGTV’s “Fantasy Open House” as she traveled across the country and toured multi-million dollar mansions. All of this experience made her a perfect fit as a guest speaker for The Woodlands event.
Claire Berger’s Keynote can help other planned communities by focusing on:
1. Inspiring stories of businesses and individuals who practice mindful happiness which increases sales and personal success.
2. Exploration of the medically proven benefits to creating happiness, both at work and at home.
3. Graphic examples of companies and individuals who understand that happy employees equal profitable and successful businesses.
4. Guided improvisational exercises designed to break down inhibitions and stale preconceptions of what ‘serious’ business looks like.
Claire offers the following breakout sessions for planned community groups:
1) PARKS & RECREATION RE-DO
Public recreation areas are key to building any healthy, social community. Recently, concerns for citizens’ health have given developers pause for new thoughts about ways to create non-traditional recreation space. Claire inspires participants to re-invent current recreational space and plan for exciting new ideas that we will generate together through imaginative teamwork.
2) CREATING A CULINARY COMMUNITY
Many planned communities host various cook-offs to inspire fun and delicious community involvement. Claire takes it one step further and works with participants to re-imagine the standard cook-off contest, borrowing from many popular Food Network favorites to create culinary competitions that match the community spirit, culture and competitive spirit. Chefs of all ages benefit from these spirited results.
3) WORLD’S GREATEST YARD SALE
Television shows such as “Hoarders” have inspired families to reevaluate their current organization skills. With creative incentives we find the courage to peer inside our closets, garages and storage spaces. Those who hold garage or yard sales boast a new sense of lightness and organization, not to mention more cash in their wallets. Claire urges participants to thing BIG in reinventing the typical yard/garage sale and together we create a new way to clean homes and create community spirit.
4) IRRELEVANT CELEBRATIONS
In Claire’s world of productive fun, parades are not just reserved for the 4th of July. Any event, regardless of its insignificance can and should be elevated to parade status. Real Estate Brokers and developers welcome to opportunity to create a parade both for self-promotion and inspiring community spirit. She encourages participants to reflect on their childhood memories and their community’s interests to design new celebrations that will quickly become community traditions that will contribute to the joy and retention of its residents.
