Workshops and Events

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”—Mahatma Gandhi

Not everyone is terrified of being on stage; some people live for it and have a special talent for sharing information (or hosting an event) that leaves a lasting impression. We have a regular slate of workshops and talks you can participate in, or you can have us do one just for you.

Imagine your audience is naked. Or don’t. Maybe don’t do that.

Professional seasoned speakers and hosts are critical when you want to have a flawless live event, or need to impart mission critical training to a special group, or simply want you and your staff to get a new perspective on something.

BrandJitsu™: Find, Shape, and Share Your Story

Businesses in North America have a 13% success rate, and of the top ten reasons why businesses fail, seven of them can be directly attributed to brand, or lack thereof. Your brand is the DNA of your entire company and if you don’t have that figured out you’re in trouble.

BrandJitsu is a proven methodology which helps businesses succeed and thrive (regardless of market conditions) by clearly understanding the reason you’re in business in the first place—the very DNA of your business—before you even think about a logo, or website, or even a business card.

Fight Club for Entrepreneurs

Each round is five minutes. Take an entrepreneur and put them on stage in front of a panel of judges and an audience of their peers, then cheer as they either rise to the challenge or crumble under the pressure.

Regardless of how their round goes down, each entrepreneur then gets five minutes of constructive feedback and suggestions from the panel, and then a tight five minutes of questions and feedback from the audience.
