A Great Keynote Engages AND Educates...

1.
IF A TREE FALLS IN THE WOODS

If an audience is checking their cell phones, they're not getting the content no matter how useful it is.  The trick is to deliver great content in a way that keeps an audience leaning in -- that's why this keynote has such great impact.  Or as sales guru Jeffrey Gitomer says, "The end of laughter is followed by the height of listening."

2.
PRACTICAL CONTENT THAT RINGS TRUE

Audiences are looking for information that will help them perform better and do more.  That's what our session was written to deliver.  It's accessible, makes sense, and because it's delivered with music, it sticks in their minds helping them to really make of use the content when they get back to "real life."

3.
THE ROOM COMES TO LIFE

Events days are PACKED with sessions and information.  Sometimes you can just feel the room slowing down.  But the information you're there to share is important -- really important.  How do you keep people connected?  This session is like flipping a switch to energize your event.

4.
THE GOLDILOCKS KEYNOTE

Some people are delivering death by PowerPoint and others are entertaining, but really don't deliver any content.  In the end, it's about balance.  The Water Coolers deliver a truly funny keynote that drops in nuggets of useful content while we've got them focused on us.

About the Creators

__

What do you get when a comedy writer and a management consultant get married?  As it turns out, you get a comedy act about work that's gotten standing ovations around the world for over 15 years.  Since 2001, we've been putting together great writing and performing talent to create and deliver something honest and uncommonly funny.  Every day we learn something new and every day, we laugh.  Most importantly, though, it's working for our clients. 

Your audience is busy and we take the value of their time very seriously -- both as individuals and a group -- so when we set out to write a keynote, we wanted to make sure the 4 key takeaways were practical, useful, and really resonated.  To be clear, it's definitely a comedy session -- but the content nuggets are real.

“We set out to make people laugh really hard, get that relaxed feeling that comes with laughing, and then give them a few practical things they can use to make life and work better.”
