Passion! 
8 Steps to Reignite Yours

As working professionals, we could all use a little jolt from time to time.  This session may be the only time all year when you take a moment to reflect on the things you need to do to reignite the passion that brought you into the workforce in the first place.  World-touring entertainer and actor Mark J. Lindquist offers a keynote that is as entertaining as it is enlightening as he sends you out the door on fire.

Sales!
8 Steps to Ignite Yours

Feeling the grind of the sales universe?  Need to refocus your efforts to make this year your best year yet?  Trying to achieve the elusive six-figure sales income and need a playbook to follow?  "Sales! 8 Steps to Ignite Yours" is the perfect message for your sales team!  Your people will walk out the door with renewed enthusiasm to do the work necessary to discover their highest potential as a salesperson.

Service!
My Way of Life

Customers and clients make the world go round.  Without our customers, we are on the unemployment line.  Without good customer service, our customers go elsewhere.  During this keynote address, audience members will learn how to be intentional about creating give back moments that your customers will never forget.  Participants will leave this session with an understanding that if a true sense of value is to be theirs, it is to come through service – service to the heroes who provide us with our livelihood.  For the company constantly on the lookout for themes to rally around that inspire a greater desire for outstanding customer service, look no further.  This is the presentation that will forever change the way your people understand and apply “customer service.”

Gratitude!
Live It.

In the days and weeks following 9/11/2001 Mark J. Lindquist was a 20-year-old AmeriCorps volunteer and an American Red Cross emergency support worker at ground zero at the Pentagon.  Using this shared experience as the basis for his principles, Mark shares with you a perspective on this national tragedy many say is the first original thing they’ve ever heard about September 11th.  Audience members will learn about “The best person you have ever been,” which Mark says is the person you were on September 12th, of 2001.  On that day, we called our mother and we told her we loved her.  On 9/12/2001 we mended fences with people, we said we were sorry, we didn’t let the little things bother us.  On that day we were the most kind, caring, compassionate, loving, giving, patient person we have ever been.  Following this keynote, participants have made phone calls, written letters, and repaired relationships that were long overdue for a fresh start.  If you are looking for a shift in culture and perspective within your organization, Mark’s powerful playbook for the daily application of gratitude will profoundly impact your people.
