What Blockchain Means for Marketers and Advertisers by Kelly McDonald, Marketing Speaker

July 11th, 2018

kelly-mcdonald1_headshotUnless you’ve been traveling in outer space, you have heard of cryptocurrency and blockchain. Stories about cryptocurrency and blockchain, the technology that foments digital currencies (or tokens), dominate the news as newly minted millionaires seem to get younger every story. However, they are two separate entities when it comes to future applications.

Certainly, cryptocurrency is disrupting the financial world in many ways. However, blockchain will massively impact how we do business, communicate and transact.

Received Career Advice? Pause, And Consider Your Source, Underclassmen In The NFL Draft by Don Yaeger, Leadership Speaker

February 23rd, 2018

I get it.  I probably (ok, certainly) won’t hear my name called among the 250+ players picked during the 2018 NFL Draft on April 26-28.  Sadly, there are countless others who have written this letter to Roger Goodell that are in the same boat as me – they won’t hear their name either.

But don’t think I’m stopping there. Before the week is out I’m writing Adam Silver (NBA), Rob Manfred (MLB), Gary Bettman (NHL) and even Ethan Sturm (Major League Quidditch) letting them know I officially announce my eligibility for their leagues and associations, as well!

This Is the Only Way You’ll Get An Angry Customer to Calm Down by Myra Golden, Customer Service Speaker

August 8th, 2017

Myra-Head-Shot-300x300If your customer is raising his voice, cutting you off, or is clearly upset, he is stuck in the right side of the brain. To help this customer calm down, you’re going to have to move him to the left side of the brain. No other approach you take will defuse anger if you don’t first move over to the left brain.

Psychologists talk about what they call the communication chain. The communication chain says that when a person puts out a verbal message, they expect a response to that message. That first message is a link in the communication chain. If there’s no response to the link, the chain is left unlinked, or broken. Read the rest of this entry »

3 Steps To Achieve Successful Leadership Habits by Tom Flick, Leadership Speaker

November 18th, 2016

I’ve been asked many times, “Are great leaders born with their abilities, or can these characteristics be learned?” I’m here to tell you that leaders aren’t predestined at birth, they’re made out of choice; crafted by their character, anchored by their values, and proven by their habits. Most anyone can learn to be an effective leader; it just takes practice, patience, and honing the right skills. The beautiful thing about leadership habits is that they’re powerful not only at work, but in other parts of life. Great leaders, those who impact peoples lives, don’t merely act that way in certain situations, they’re leaders who display it in all areas of their life. In coming posts, I’ll share with you how to build the foundation to start becoming the outstanding leader through your habits and behaviors.

TA DA: Happy Employees make Happy Customers by Joel Zeff, Leadership Speaker

September 23rd, 2016

I always start my presentations with a TA DA! The whole audience stands up. We count to three, stretch our hands high in the air and yell out “TA DA!” People laugh. Some audience members applaud. And then we do it again. We all need a TA DA.

After more than 1,700 events, I don’t think I have met one person who didn’t yell out a TA DA. I have seen accountants, lawyers, IT, sales people, maintenance men, truck drivers, surgeons, teachers, white collar, blue collar, and people from around the world all TA DA. If there is one thing we can all agree on, everyone likes positive support and appreciation. And that is the secret of TA DA. We all want to “TA DA!” We just don’t want to admit it.

Living In The Moment by Chad Hymas, Inspirational Speaker

August 16th, 2016

Have you ever had a moment in your life where something clicked and it all seemed so clear that you couldn’t believe it? I have had a few such moments in my life and I would like to share one with you.

It had been a few months since my accident, and I would follow the same routine. I’d get up, transfer to the electric chair, go into my office and shut the door. I would sit for hours, dwelling – pondering – fearing what my future looked like – for me and my family.
