Keynote Topics

It Pays to Lighten Up

Fun at Work is serious business.

Humorist and corporate culture expert Scott Christopher debunks the myth that levity is somehow a frivolous non-issue and detrimental to an organization’s success.

In a lively and hilarious speech, Christopher establishes the case for levity leadership using:

  1. data from the Great Place to Work Institute’s million person study establishing the connection between “fun at work” and “best places”
  2. statistics from various surveys and research supporting the importance of having a sense of humor
  3. case studies and stories from KPMG, Boeing, Microsoft, Virgin, Southwest Airlines and many other organizations where levity has moved the needle
  4. proven tips, tools, and ideas on how to lighten up a workplace NOW

This presentation is a high-level look at all aspects of the levity effect, including:

  • the business relevance of humor and fun
  • energizing fun at work
  • building trust
  • creating dynamic presentations
  • holding more effective meetings
  • enhancing creativity
  • levity for home and life

Learning to Put ‘People First’ and Why You Should Even Care

Are you a ‘People’ Person? And why does it matter?

In an increasingly competitive business climate, People People provide more tangible value to a company than ever before.

Why?

As constantly-improving technology dehumanizes relationships and communications–allowing ‘users’ to hide behind their e-personas–People People lift their organizations above the competition by refusing to lose touch with humanity.

They prefer a phone call over text, a face-to-face chat over an email, a handshake over a ‘poke’ or ‘nudge.’

Most of today’s ‘best’ companies rely heavily on the human touch to help differentiate their market brand, their public image and their employee culture.

In People People, best-selling author and speaker Scott Christopher explains the four fundamental attributes (C.A.R.E.™) of People People, how to become a true Type III People Person, why ‘People First’ organizations excel, and how to do it.

Sharing a mix of business cases, research data and compelling stories, Scott builds a convincing case that winning organizations are flush with People People and that ‘nice guys’ really do finish first: People People are healthier, wealthier, happier and live longer than their less-caring cohorts.

The simple truth is that being a People Person is less about being good WITH people, as being good TO people.

Scott Christopher | Motivational Light Humorist

If 20+ years speaking to hundreds of blown away clients has taught Scott Christopher anything it’s THERE IS NO AUDIENCE THAT DOESN’T WANT TO LAUGH, regardless of how ‘serious’ the topic may be.

Fortunately, Scott mainly speaks about LEVITY in the workplace and how to LIGHTEN UP in life and is roundly accepted as one of the funniest speakers today, so audience laughter is a regular occurrence. Loud, howling laughter.

After speaking recently to a group of 350 state government managers one commented, “In all our years doing this event, I have never heard this group laugh so hard-at anything or anyone!

In his rare spare time, Scott is a television host, emcee and actor (SAG), appearing on network television series EverwoodTouched by an Angel and in Disney Channel movies.
