Enthusiasm Your Secret Weapon (Attitude/Peak Performance)

Paul illustrates what an optimistic state of mind can and will do for one's work ethic while providing concrete examples of morale-boosting ideas. The information participants take from this presentation will not only emphasize the importance of efficiency, a positive attitude and a passion toward life, it will also provide them with an incredible advantage in their everyday lives. Paul will ignite the audience with concepts such as (1) enthusiasm is a state of mind; (2) manage situations before they manage you; (3) make good on your full potential; (4) broaden your outreach to others; and (5) grasp the "now" rather than the "later." In the competitive world today, enthusiasm coupled with a positive attitude pays large dividends and leaves an everlasting mark. History has shown that a mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will go miles further than a great idea that inspires no one.
Keep It Simple (Motivation)

With the many decisions required in any given day, it is easy to become overwhelmed and flounder rather than move in a positive direction.

The WOW Factor, Presenting with Ease (Presentation Skills)
