Uncommon Connections

Keynote Speaker:

Thom Singer, CSP

All opportunities come from people, and those few “uncommon connections” are the key to success.

When the message of human engagement is part of the conference, attendees can make connections that will impact their future.

Better Engagement and A Stronger Inner Circle

When people come together at in-person conferences there is incredible potential. Harnessing the power of the human connections is not easy, but it is why people attend industry events. When your meeting is about the intersection of content and connections, it will be remembered as the best conference ever. Select Thom Singer as the speaker who will set the tone for better engagement and make your meeting an interactive experience.

Featured Keynote Presentation:

“Uncommon Connections: Building A Stronger Inner Circle”

Adding one key contact to your inner circle is worth more than 1000 extra social media followers. The reality of “social distancing” was that we learned Human Connections matter more than ever.  All opportunities in life come from people, and those who understand how to make, grow and keep their business relationships find success in all economic situations.  We are stronger together.

All things being equal, people choose to do business with those they know, like, and trust. But not all relationships in your business or personal life are created equally. A like, link, share, or follow is not necessarily a powerful engagement.

The contacts with whom you build long-term and mutually beneficial relationships that impact your life are rare. These “Uncommon Connections” can be cultivated and should be cherished. This presentation is an action packed look at how to create business friendships, build trust, and create unlimited opportunities.

Featured Corporate Workshop:

“Trust, Accountability, and Business Relationships”

Your company culture is a key retention tool. But in today’s remote and hybrid working environments, it is harder to have employees feel connected to each other. Surveys show that when people have friendships at work they stay longer, work harder, and speak more positively about their company. When there is trust and accountability between people who know, like, and respect their coworkers, your company will thrive.  

Thom Singer is a certified partner with the Trust Edge Leadership Institute and the Accountability Institute. He combines his teaching on the power of community, collaboration, and conversations with the underpinning foundations of trust and accountability to help your team come together to get more done and win more business.

Thom was our opening keynote speaker and stayed on as the master of ceremonies for our annual conference. His program content and high energy were exactly what we wanted. The audience raved about his presentation. He made meaningful connections to our audience, and I could not have asked for a better emcee and host … We have already hired him to come back next year.

Thom served in both an MC and keynote speaker capacity for three years at PLM World (a STEM association). Each year he added new stories and approaches, making his appearance new and compelling. We had a last minute snafu this year and we were left with no keynote. Thom did not hesitate and with only 15 minutes, came to the rescue with 40 minutes of material that was relevant and even customized to our audience. I highly recommend Thom for your next MC or standalone keynote speaker.

Thom served as our “Conference Catalyst” at SailPoint’s first-ever Global User Conference. 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.
