Ron Culberson - Speaker, Author, Humorist (2016)

Ron Culberson - Speaker, Author, Humorist (2016)

As a speaker, humorist, columnist, and author of Is Your Glass Laugh Full? and My Kneecap Seems Too Loose, Ron Culberson’s mission is to help staff and managers achieve a new level of success by understanding the power of Do it Well, Make it Fun. Success, even in tough times, comes from showing up and doing a great job. Ron helps staff become extraordinary by helping them focus on excellence while making their work experience more enjoyable. He also helps managers understand the qualities of an organizational culture that will attract great employees, develop excellent leaders, and deliver extraordinary products and services.

For ten years, Ron worked as a Home Care Social Worker, Counseling Manager, and Director of Quality Services for a large hospice organization in the Washington, DC suburbs. These experiences taught him about the challenges of working on the front line, in middle management, and ultimately in senior management. He has a proven track record as a successful member of a multidisciplinary team and as an effective senior leader.

In 2001 Ron received the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, the highest earned designation from the National Speakers Association. The CSP is the speaking profession’s international measure of professional platform excellence.

In 2009, Ron cofounded Funner Speeches, LLC, a humor writing service for speakers, executives, and politicians. Ron and his partner help their clients make a greater impact with their presentations by making them funnier.

Ron’s business model also includes dedicating a significant portion of his time to volunteer service. He will be President of the National Speakers Association (NSA) in 2012. In 2010, he received the NSA President’s Distinguished Service Award. He is Past President of the Washington, DC chapter of NSA where he received the Chapter Member of the Year Award, the Capital Outstanding Speaker Award, and the John J. Daly Founder’s Award. He has also served on numerous boards and committees for Capital Hospice, the Art Gliner Center for Humor Studies, and the Herndon Rotary club where he chaired two of their largest fundraisers. Ron has received the Rotarian of the Year, and the Four Avenues of Service Awards, two of the highest Rotary awards given. 

Do It Well. Make It Fun.

Good enough is not really that good.

Success, even in tough times, comes from showing up and doing an excellent job. It's not rocket surgery! But most people do just enough to get by and then miss the opportunities that come from doing a great job with a great attitude.

This hilarious presentation addresses the common sense philosophy of Do it Well, Make it Fun. Ron shows staff and managers how to become successful by seeking excellence while at the same time making their work experience more enjoyable. By creating an organizational culture in which excellence and fun coexist, you will attract great employees, develop excellent leaders, and deliver extraordinary products and services.

Topics may include:

  • Doing the right thing by embracing values that display integrity in your work and personal life.
  • Developing the skills you need to do your job and seek to continually improve them.
  • Focusing on the present rather than getting caught up in the stress that living in the past or worrying about the future creates.
  • Connecting and communicating with others using empathy and clarity.
  • Working effectively with others as a member of teams, committees, and projects.
  • Making your message memorable by using stories and humor when you present information to others.
  • Managing projects effectively so that people want to participate.
  • Creating effective work processes where excellence and fun coexist.
  • Managing people with excellence and care so that those you lead will want to follow.

 

Genuinely Speaking: How YOU can Make Your Message More Memorable

Great speakers capture the hearts and the minds of their audiences. They do this most effectively by tapping into their unique gifts, skills, and experiences as a way to connect their authentic selves to the content of their message. The result is a one-of-a-kind delivery of information.

The first step in developing an effective speaking style is to understand the unique perspective that you bring to a presentation. Next, you must understand the goal of the presentation and the audience to whom you are speaking. That sets the stage for creating a powerful structure that includes content, stories, and humor. By combining your uniqueness with an engaging style of delivery, your message will make a greater impact and be more memorable.
