Humor Power At Work - Laughing All The Way to The Bank!
John Kinde is an award-winning professional speaker and motivational humorist. Based in Las Vegas he speaks at conventions and meetings for corporate and association clients. You're looking for a refreshing program which will change the way people think. Open your event with an energizing program and set the tone for the rest of your meeting.

John often opens this program performing comedy-magic with an audience volunteer; a laughter-filled routine which is always an audience favorite. Then, this change-of-pace program will look at ways to fine tune your humor radar. A sense of humor creates positive perspectives to manage stress and to build strong relationships and teams.

The main focus of the program is taking personal responsibility for your own attitude. Another key point is that you change other people by changing yourself first. John uses original stories to make the key points memorable.

The program creates smiles that are carried back to the workplace. The punch line is connected to the bottom line.

Your presenter has an MBA in Personnel Administration and seventeen-year's leadership experience working with nuclear weapons. He has presented over 1000 hours of improv comedy workshops.

This program provides the magic of laughter and past clients have said that this program is talked about long after the event is over. See John's article, Smile Power - Increase Your Face Value, for a sampling of his humor and success philosophy. And listen to two brief audio clips from this program.

Let's explore setting up a program for your group and look at some simple answers on how we get started working together.

Playing to Win - Winning by Playing!
Success Strategies Inside and Outside the Casino

Don't gamble with your opening session. You want a program to set the stage for your meeting in Las Vegas. This is it.

A fun-filled program will welcome your attendees to the City of Lights. Your meeting attendees are probably like most groups who come to Las Vegas. Surveys show that only 5% of Las Vegas Visitors come primarily to gamble. However, of all the city's visitors, before they leave, 87% DO gamble.

Most people mistakenly think that casinos get rich mainly because the odds favor the house. There are even more compelling reasons why people lose. And each winning strategy in the casino provides rich lessons for success in the workplace.

Your presenter, John Kinde, has spent many years as a blackjack dealer and knows Las Vegas. He seasons the program with interesting and humorous trivia about the city.

The main focus is on how your attendees will get the most out of your convention, enjoy their visit to Las Vegas, and relate these success strategies to real-world skills they can take home. It's a sure bet.

Let's explore setting up a program for your group and look at some simple answers on how we get started working together.

Get the most out of your visit to The City of Lights. See my Las Vegas Tips and Entertainment Reviews.
