Real ‘people’ skills and a levity attitude are critical to superb client care.

In another compelling and hilarious keynote presentation, Scott Christopher reveals the keys to customer service that cement brand loyalty. The basic principles revealed in The Levity Effect and People People are the foundation of the program.

Levity and ‘people’ skills are getting rarer and rarer as technology takes over even some of the most fundamental of human interactions with face to face business transactions being hit hardest. While ‘gen Ys’ and ‘milennials’ may be more cause-driven and altruistic than the elder generations, ironically they are terrible ‘with people.’ Their innate tech-savviness has sapped most of them of whatever people skills they probably once possessed.

The Whys, Whats and Hows of the ‘soft side’ of customer service are presented. Inspiring loyalty among clients begins with doing the same thing among peers.

Wit and Wisdom presented in a high-energy, compelling keynote.

The SEVEN UPs of Managing at Work: fun-DUH-mentals of felicity

In this wise & witty new keynote and book (Fall 2017), author and culture consultant Scott Christopher shares the SEVEN UPs that everyone—leaders and staff–should master to happily ‘manage at work.’ From dealing with change (Suck It UP) and employee recognition (Give It UP) to handling generational (Grow UP) and morale (Cheer UP) issues, Scott shares the funDUHmentals of felicity for managing at work or just managing at work.


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:

  • data from the Great Place to Work Institute's million person study establishing the connection between "fun at work" and "best places"
  • statistics from various surveys and research supporting the importance of having a sense of humor
  • case studies and stories from KPMG, Boeing, Microsoft, Virgin, Southwest Airlines and many other organizations where levity has moved the needle
  • 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


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


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 (The Levity Effect) 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.
