Tom DeLuca – The Corporate Hypnotist

Tom DeLuca

Open the windows to your imagination as Tom DeLuca uses the power of suggestion, and humor to highlight the wonderful imaginations and personalities within the audience. For those who are familiar with Tom’s show, you already know you will have lots of fun. This time, Tom also will illustrate how seemingly innocuous suggestions from people around us or even from Ourselves, can have a positive or negative effect on our behavior as we move toward our goals. Powerful entertainment with a fun message, this program demonstrates the inherent creativity of the participants when they’re relaxed, comfortable, and given permission to be themselves. Beyond the fun element in Tom’s performance, it’s also a reminder that what our subconscious/imagination believes to be true strongly influences what you do—whether that belief is real or not! This is the joyous performance that landed Tom DeLuca on the front page of The Wall Street Journal and caught the attention of NBC’s “Dateline.” “The results of Tom’s show are fascinating, hilarious, at times even poignant. Don’t miss him.” New York Post

Build for Tomorrow - Lessons for Adapting to Change 

Jason Feifer

Times of great disruption can be times of great opportunity — but how do you take advantage of it? In this high-energy, dynamic talk, Jason Feifer breaks down an actionable strategy for navigating moments of disruption, whether they're giant (like the pandemic) or more specific (internal reorgs or shifts in industries). Change is tough, but it’s also a thrilling time filled with almost limitless opportunities for positive change and growth. Jason argues that all change happens in four phases: First we panic, then we adapt, then we find a new normal, and then we reach Wouldn't Go Back — the moment in which we develop something so new and valuable to our lives and careers that we say, "I wouldn't want to go back to a time before I had this." Jason offers his audience a way to reframe their relationship with change, spot opportunity in the once-impossible, and get to Wouldn't Go Back.

Teamwork and Leadership in a Changing World

Karl Mecklenburg

We can all recognize teamwork or the lack of teamwork in a sports competition. How do less talented teams beat a roster full of superstars? Teams with leaders throughout the organization win. Karl teaches leaders to utilize the C’s of leadership. Clarity and Consistency of the following three team focuses: Cornerstones – the team’s purpose, Commitment – to the team’s mission, and Connection – with the individuals on the team. Great teams use the strengths of the individual to help the team win, and the strengths of the team to cover for the weaknesses of the individual. Story based and full of humor, Karl’s presentation brings a team together in times of change, and fights complacency in times of success.
