People attend live event for the networking opportunities, but often fail to make meaningful connections once the are present at the conference. Thom Singer has a unique way to get people to engage more and maximize their experience. This program is a hybrid of an opening keynote presentation and the role of EmCee.
There is more to creating business relationships than a "like", "link", "share" or "follow". While the popular social media tools can make it seem like we have countless friends and business associates, it is real human engagement that leads to opportunity. This program brings the audience back to the basics of how to establish connections that will lead to more success in business, sales, an life.
Most people want to feel significant: at home, at work, in their community, etc…. But you cannot feel significant alone in a field. You need others. A person can fake success, but they cannot fake significance. Discovering what is important and interesting to other people is more important now than ever before. This program is designed to educate and inspire anyone to make relationships a priority while learning to maximize influence and effectiveness.
If the role of event host is a second tier priority, you might have second tier results. Too often organizations select any available executive or association member to serve as the EmCee for their conference. The master of ceremonies sets the tone for a live event and engaging a professional creates levels of enthusiasm for the meeting that touch the whole agenda.
Thom served as our "Conference Catalyst" at SailPoint's first-ever Global User Conference in April 2013. His approach to engaging our attendees and encouraging them to focus on person-to-person interactions at the conference was HIGHLY successful. The majority of our attendees felt it added a significant and unique "flavor" to the conference. I highly recommend Thom and his program for other user conferences.

Thom is a gifted motivational speaker who helps people connect on a personal level in a social media crazy world. I asked Thom to speak at Ungerboeck Software's Annual Global Conference and he truly became the Conference Catalyst. He connected with our Global User Group and shared some very insightful thoughts on networking and personal branding. Thom's entire philosophy, approach and the manner in which he fully embraced our conference and our global users was truly valued and appreciated by all who attended.
