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.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
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 2 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 around on his hands and knees to pick it up, chasing a misplaced ice cube around the table with a spoon, and serving sugar with your steak and potatoes.
THIS IS ACTUALLY YOUR SPEAKER, undercover as a bad waiter, playing the role of an utterly inept server who is breaking 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?"
The result? Some of the most powerful EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING the event industry has ever seen.
THE TRANSFORMATION: You'll watch your guests experience their own patterns in vivid detail, namely, how they react to unexpected circumstances and events, what their default habits are when they're met with situations that are unusual and outside of their expectations, and how they relate to challenging individuals who cross their path. After all, THIS IS WHAT YOUR GUESTS FACE EACH DAY of their personal and professional lives. The unplanned, the challenging, and the unexpected.
TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN TODAY'S WORLD means learning to respond to these kind of situations effectively and consciously, not reactively and thoughtlessly.
Near the end of the meal 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 and then asks if the audience is aware that they've been part of a social experiment as a hidden camera photo of a SHOCKED AND SURPRISED 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 as it dawns on them that they have been part of an INSPIRATIONAL PRESENTATION they didn't realize had already begun.
With warmth, engagement, and humor your speaker unpacks the experience they have just had, sharing more photos and footage of past audiences and speaking about the habitual "in the box" behavior we're cultural trained to default to when the going gets tough in our professional or personal lives. He explains why it gets us stuck in our lives. Finally, he reveals the 3 ESCAPE MOVES that anyone can use to live, think, and work outside the box with maximum CLARITY, CREATIVITY & INFLUENCE.
