Featured Keynote Presentations:

“Social Tightening While Social Distancing”

In times of change and uncertainty, how you connect with people matters more than ever. Society has been heavily impacted by the global pandemic and the necessary moves to social distancing. But as live meetings are postponed and people work from home, human connections become more important than ever. Thom Singer has spent 15 years teaching people how to connect. As face-to-face events were cancelled, he knew this was the time to double down on business and personal relationships. Creating plans to keep ties with family, friends, coworkers, customers, etc…  do not happen by accident. Social Tightening is his recommendations for companies and associations who desire to help their people stay engaged.  This presentation is available live or virtual.


There is more to business than “likes”, “links”, “shares”, and “follows”. While the social media and digital tools we all use everyday are great, they do not really solve all the issues around how to make, grow and keep our business relationship. All opportunities come from people, so how we engage with others makes all the difference in how we succeed in our personal and professional lives. The secret weapon for success comes in the connections we cultivate with others. Thom Singer has spent 15 years teaching how to get back to the basics of creating meaningful relationships that help you get ahead.

“Performance Driven: How To Overcome The Paradox of Potential”

High potential does not equal high performance, and research shows that an overwhelming percentage of professionals are not satisfied with their own success or performance of their team. Potential is reached through engaging in the RIGHT actions, and Thom Singer is the perfect business motivational speaker to get your organization focused on the plans, passion, and people needed for success.  Results are about more than systems…you have to try new things.  This is the keynote to get people out of their comfort zone and focused on performance.

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.
