Thom’s Programs

In Real Life: Connecting With People in a Gadget Crazed World
There is more to creating business relationships than a “like”, “link”, “share” or “follow”.  While the popular social media tools can make it seem like we have countless friends and business associates, it is real human engagement that leads to opportunity. This program is designed as an opening keynote and will bring the audience focus back to the basics on establishing connections that will lead to more success in business, sales, and life. Make your event a human laboratory for connecting.
Cooperative Significance: Being an Influential Leader at Work (and Beyond)
Most people want to feel significant: at home, at work, in their community, etc…. But you cannot feel significant alone in a field.  You need others.  A person can fake success, but they cannot fake significance. Discovering what is important and interesting to other people is more important now than ever before.  This program is designed to educate and inspire anyone to make relationships a priority while learning lead and influence others.
The Paradox of Potential

Having “high potential” does not mean performing at maximum capability. While many believe they are doing all they can, a huge number of professionals are frustrated because they are coming up short of their personal expectations (and the expectations of others). Beyond excuses and finger pointing, this interactive presentation gets to the heart of how people can accomplish more and enjoy their work. As more organizations focus on the “future of work”, this is about more than telecommuting and stand up desks. Get your audience excited about goal setting, realistic assessments, teamwork, successful human engagement, cross-selling, and other skills to help everyone reach their highest potential.
