The program focuses on leadership, teamwork and networking by employing humor and creativity to enhance your message. Based on his comedy workshops and educational programs, audience members are the “stars” of the show as they write and deliver short humorous conversational ice-breakers and practice the important art of listening. “Info-tainment” is the best word to describe this program designed for learning through laughter.

Dave also teaches these skills to students grades 6 -12, colleges and universities via video conferences through The Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC). He is a Pinnacle Award Winner for excellence in learning programs.Dave Schwensen speaker agency

Dave can give you an audience interactive training seminar, break-out session or keynote.

* How can YOU enhance leadership skills?

* How do YOU get someone’s attention and hold it long enough to remember what you say?David Schwensen hiring agent

* How can YOU “break the ice” and make a memorable first impression?

* What can YOU do to improve teamwork?

* How can YOU increase networking opportunities?

* What separates YOU from everyone else offering superb customer service?

You could hand someone a million dollars – that would get my attention! Otherwise it’s time to open the lines of communication and make your wit pay off. Enhancing your message with humor and creativity makes the difference.

The simple truth is that successful people know how to start and continue conversations that are not only heard – but listened to and remembered. Colorful emails, high tech websites and expensive brochures may open the doors to communication, but eventually you’ll have to meet face to face, pick up the phone, or be on screen during a video conference. These are all opportunities for YOU to separate yourself from the rest of the pack (your competition) and build successful and productive relationships with co-workers, clients or students.

Are YOU prepared? (Hint: It’s more than simply saying “Hello”).

* The key to strong leadership is communicating with your staff and co-workers.

* The key to productive teamwork and networking is building stronger relationships.

* The key to superb customer service is relating to your clients.

* The key to success in sales is separating yourself from your competition.

Dave’s audience interactive presentation…

Shows how to employ your personal creativity and humor as communication enhancements without distracting from your message. These personality driven conversation techniques are the basis for courses he designed and taught in communications and presentation skills at Cleveland State University, Youngstown State University and other “halls of higher learning.” During his training seminars and keynote presentations, Dave uses handouts from his course workbooks and audience participation to explain and demonstrate how to develop dynamic and memorable conversations. Combining his successful techniques as a business owner and comedy coach with workshops based at the Chicago, Cleveland and Tampa Improv Comedy Clubs, and seminars from New York to San Francisco, communicating has never been more fun(ny) – and productive.

Participants gain a new awareness of what they already possess…

Personal creativity and a sense of humor. The goal of this program is to show how these talents can be used as successful communication tools.

The results include:

* Better professional relationships.

* Enhanced leadership skills.

* Improved teamwork.

* Improved training / teaching skills.

* Effective customer service.

* Positive networking.

* Better presentation skills.

* Increased productivity and attendance.

* Relieve stressful situations.

Dave’s diverse professional background…

In coaching, management, customer service and marketing enables him to bring unique solutions to common problems. A veteran of the fast paced and high stress entertainment industry in Hollywood and New York City, he worked behind the scenes as a talent coordinator and consultant for television networks, film studios and live performance venues. With egos and star power often clashing on a daily basis, Dave developed an innovative style of business communication skills to promote teamwork and meet deadlines through his relationships with many of today’s top comedy stars and production companies.

Dave Schwensen has been featured on…

PBS Television and Radio, Chicago Tribune, U.S. News & World Report, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Hollywood Reporter, Magazine, Ohio Magazine and many others. He has also made numerous national and regional television and radio appearances as a comedy coach, communications consultant and author.

* Training seminars and keynotes use elements from Dave’s comedy workshops and include audience participation and worksheets from his university courses. Another benefit? A LOT of entertaining fun and laughter during your next conference or special event!
