But even more important than “about Greg” is “about your audience”. What the audience takes away from any presentation is what matters most. Did you audience have fun? Are they inspired?

TOPICS

 

Get Involved: Turn Your Passion Into Action
We need to live fully and to find meaning in what we do. Does your group know best how to make that a reality? Greg themes his keynotes by using an example of someone from the client’s community who embodies the ideas of passion, having a sense of purpose, engaging with creativity and utilizing collaboration. He then offers perspectives on these ideas while using their person as a model. This material is researched thoroughly in advance. The keynote is adaptable to conferences and events with leadership or teamwork themes, and is funny all throughout with constant audience involvement and participation. In the presentation, you will hear about creativity and collaboration, and how they translate into action. Greg can also include topics important to YOUR organization:

 

Leadership
What are the qualities and strengths of vulnerable and confident leaders, and how does it benefit you to know the difference? Greg’s real life experience with leadership includes the World Leaders Project, an initiative Greg started that had him meeting face to face with world leaders (specifically the President of Guyana, with other meetings currently being scheduled) to discuss dynamics of power, control, and effective balance. You need a speaker who talks the talk and walks the walk. And one who is funny. Greg is all of those in one.

 

Teamwork
What are the greatest hurdles to effective communication? How can we transform being let down by others in the past to being inspired to try again in order to work together effectively? Greg sits on the Board of an international organization dedicated to increasing human compassion and empathy. He knows teamwork. Teamwork demands vigilance, patience, commitment, and determination. Add to that a focus on why impossible dynamics can be unraveled and made possible, and you have a great presentation.
