Are you looking for a presentation that is OUTSIDE THE BOX of the usual options?
Do you need something truly different to get the full attention of your attendees and inspire them to a whole new level of clarity, creativity and influence in their personal and professional lives?
BE BOX FREE is a once in a lifetime experience for your guests. A highly impactful, surprising, fun and practically useful keynote presentation that uses comedy and theater to launch your audience into a new level of understanding and action, outside the box of ordinary results.
Imagine your guests sitting down for their meal as their server approaches the table to refresh the water glass.
Filling the glass to the absolute brim from a height of two-and-a-half feet, your guest is asked, "Is that enough water for you?" by a completely straight-faced waiter.
Imagine the same waiter returning to the table throughout the meal and becoming more eccentric with each visit, dropping silverware on the floor and crawling on hands and knees to pick it up, chasing an escaped ice cube around the table with a spoon and serving sugar packets with the entree.
Before your guests know it, the speaker plays the role of an utterly inept server who breaks every rule of normal and expected behavior.
By the end of the meal your guests have leaned to the left or right at least a dozen times to whisper to the person sitting next to them, "Did you just see what I saw?"
Your guests connect with each other and they also begin the process of discovering what the usually react and what their habits are when they are met with situations that are unusual, outside of their expectations, and when challenging individuals cross their path.
Suddenly an announcement is made by the hotel management. They have asked the "waiter" to come forward and apologize for his behavior.
Nervously arriving on stage, the waiter stammers for words, but then asks if the audience is aware that they've been part of a social experiment as a hidden camera photo of a shocked guest is projected on the screen. It's at this point that the audience realizes that they've been totally fooled and waves of laughter erupt from the room in recognition that they have been part of the keynote before they knew it had even begun.
The actual keynote unpacks the experience they have just had showing more photos and footage of the habitual "in the box" behavior we're trained to animate when the going gets tough in our professional or personal lives, and detailing the 3 escape moves that anyone can use to live, think and work outside the box with maximum joyfulness, energy and effectiveness.
Prior to the event we will conference with your group to understand your meeting objectives and tailor the speaking element to focus on the "in the box" issues and corresponding "escape moves" that your attendees could most benefit from learning.
