What does my keynote look like in front of an audience of 6,000-7,000 people? Now, I have the video. My secret to larger groups is that you must connect and reach out to the audience. In some ways, I present to 6,000 people the same way I do to 100. I use the same interactive tools that engage and entertain every audience.
My client in this video is Ambit Energy. I have spoken at their annual conference for three consecutive years. This was my first year to keynote. It was an amazing, energizing and inspiring experience.
Below is a summary of my presentation. For more information, please visit joelzeff.com.
THE TAO OF TA-DA
Watch What Happens When Work Becomes Play.
We’ve all witnessed the excitement of a three-year-old. They celebrate finding a ladybug. They celebrate drawing a flower. They celebrate going to the bathroom in the toilet for the first time.
Somewhere along the way, too many adults lose this sense of excitement about our lives and our work. Our tanks are empty. There is no fuel for collaboration, productivity and innovation. When employees and managers are not having fun and enjoying their work, they become “Bye-Bye” people. “Bye-Bye” people don’t care about taking care of the customer, meeting goals, producing results, or having fun.
Employees and managers who have fun at their jobs are more loyal, enthusiastic and passionate. They sell more, communicate more effectively, take better care of customers and produce more sustainable results. And fun increases employee retention.
In Joel's dynamic and motivational keynote presentation, employees will appreciate the value of fun in the workplace and learn how to make the simple choices to have more fun, and increase their passion and success.
