Idiots Live: Invite us to do our schtick at your next shindig.
Tom Peters. Peter Senge. Warren Buffett. Peter Drucker.
Some of the biggest names on the lecture circuit, and none of them fit into your budget for your next company gathering. One of them was a toddler during Word War I. It's your call. You could give another bullet-point snoozer update about the mission statement and diversity or, instead of trying to fit all of the usual bull into a PowerPoint template, you could make the call to the people who really know about bull. You could call the experts.
To arrange to have one of us arrive at your next corporate event just prior to cocktails, or even to address your own merry band of idiots, please drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our sessions range from 1-hour overviews of the four traps to workshops about the specific areas you're concerned about.
The themes of our presentations and workshops include:
- Why no one's reading your emails, memos and brochures (The Four Traps)
- The art of persuasion: Likeability and the workplace voice
- With us or against us: The war against templates
- Tuned in or Tuned out: Email, voicemail and messages in a bottle
In addition, we work with sales teams and corporate communications departments to create custom programs based on our four traps model. Please write for the whole scoop.
