Featured Keynote Presentation:

“Uncommon Connections: Building A Stronger Inner Circle”

In a world of likes, links, shares, and follows… the real interpersonal relationships matter more than ever. Your “inner circle” of contacts, inside and outside your company are the key to more opportunity.

As more people work remotely, many are feeling disconnected in their careers. While not everyone has to be physically in the office every day, they do need to have a sense of belonging on their team. Doing good work matters, but the relationships you have are the secret weapon to success.  We all need more Human Connections.  People who are engaged with others at work will often stay at the company longer, work harder, and find more job satisfaction.

The foundation to building stronger business relationships is trust. When we have trust with co-workers, clients, suppliers, friends, etc…  there is more joy in our careers.  

This presentation will inspire you to embrace the human sides of business, trust, and relationships.

Featured Corporate Workshop:

“Trust, Accountability, and Business Relationships”

Your company culture is a key employee 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 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.
