Think outside the box...Or SMASH it? Chad J. Willett ((National Speakers Association/ Screen Actors Guild)) trained at the legendary Los Angeles improv company, The Groundlings, which is a training ground for the hit TV show, "Saturday Night Live." He specializes in creativity by building cultures of innovation, re-defining creative leadership practices, and working and living in the moment. His one of a kind keynote addresses/ workshops include:

SMASH THE BOX by improvising and escaping the four walls of the “Mental Box.” Once the box is SMASHED, you will break free from fear, perfection, negativity, and judgment (4 Walls) which will allow you to unleash your creative energies. Once energized, you will become a problem solver and an idea generator which will allow you to not only think outside the box… but SMASH it!

Smash the Box is a one of kind experience which includes:

Transformation: Groups will create a culture of innovation that suspends judgment and allows all voices to be heard

Innovation: Innovative strategies and technique designed for working America

Improvisation: Using the art of improvisation to think, act, and perform up to one's creative potential

Entertainment: Scenes from “Saturday Night Live” highlighting the principles discussed in “Smash the Box”

Interaction: Members receive free signed copies of Chad's book “Smash the Box” by participating in skits and the Q & A session

EYES OF A LEADER allows you to 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). Through spirited participation in a facilitated conversation about creative leadership practices, you will take on the role of a creative leader by:

*Thinking-Creating “inner dialogue” that is positive, confident, and embraces challenges

*Looking- Improving your posture and physicality which will allow you to command attention and own your space

*Acting- Becoming a master improviser will allow you to make spontaneous decisions with thoughtful consideration

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.

Chad Willett was everything that we envisioned for our event and more! He was professional, engaging, and the information was so relevant that everyone walked away feeling so much better than when they walked in the room.
