Chad J. Willett (Speaker/ Author/Trainer) inspires audiences to unleash their creative potential by SMASHING concepts, walls, barriers, and in short… the Box of life! He also writes a weekly blog where he challenges traditional and self-limiting lines of thinking. While, readers who read his book “Smash the Box” have an original experience which includes: pages out of order, no table of contents, no page numbers and pages upside down.

During Chad's programs audiences are challenged too:

Not just think outside the box... But SMASH it!

Not just be a leader... But a creative leader!

Not focus on the 7% of communication... But the 93% of communication!

Not just create a marketing campaign... But a Guerrilla marketing campaign!

Chad's original, authentic and one of a kind programs (keynotes/ work shops) include:

SMASH THE BOX

SMASH THE BOX SMASH THE BOX takes thinking “Outside the Box” to the next level by turning ideas into actions!  “Smash the Box” creates cultures of innovation where walls are removed, judgment is suspended, focus is sharpened, and team work is exemplified.  Groups that create cultures of innovation turn ideas into actions and become the game changers in their respected industries.   Re-imagine your culture by “Smashing the Box”  

EYES OF A LEADER

Only one thing stands between you and creative leadership! It's your ability to successfully think, look, and act like a creative leader. Become a creative leader by challenging your inner dialogue (Think), improving your physicality (Look), and using the art of improvisation as a weapon in working America (Act).

UNLEASH THE GUERRILLA

Unleash the Guerrilla is the achievement of marketing goals (e.g. profit) using unconventional methods such as investing energy and ideas instead of money. Guerrilla Marketing is a growing trend: executed correctly, it can be targeted at the people you want to turn on the most. Unleashing the Guerrilla is about daring to be different with your marketing campaign, having an appetite for risks, and willing to do and try the unexpected. In short, it is about producing results that command attention, draw people in, get people talking and bring you more business.

Chad took the time to learn more about us and tailored his presentation just for our group. Chad is professional, talented and accommodating. We held our team retreat outdoors on an unseasonably hot and humid day. This is not the norm for Chad, who usually works indoors. But Chad is a trooper. He not only came out to speak with our group on that warm day, but he arrived early and totally prepared. I would highly recommend Chad.
