"Attendees left with innovative communication techniques that they could immediately put to work at our conference. We had several attendees say it was their favorite session from the entire conference! I wouldn’t hesitate to have Andrew come back and present with us again.” Julie Van Amerongen - Director of Programs, Conscious Capitalism Summit (www.ceosummit.consciouscapitalism.org)
“We brought Andrew in for our yearly all-hands meeting and I can honestly say he gave one of the best presentations I've ever seen. His interactive talk gave our one hundred and fifty employees from all over the country an opportunity to connect in meaningful ways. SO grateful!” Ben Hindman - CEO, Splash (www.splashthat.com)
“Here at Zappos, we are fortunate to work with many of the best speakers on the planet. Andrew was better than many of the biggest names we've ever had on the stage. Our audience loved the interactivity and practicality of his session and we can't wait to have him back again” Antoinette Duran - Director of Internal Communication, Zappos (www.zappos.com)
Did you know that 60% of people in America report some symptoms of social anxiety and shyness. This inhibition keeps many from meeting new people, sharing their ideas and building meaningful relationships. This is happening at work, at home and...at your events.
Want the good news? There is a solution.
Imagine your attendees feeling comfortable and confidently talking with each other at your next conference.
Imagine them boldy reaching out to new people, sharing ideas and building relationships that matter.
Imagine them talking about your event and wanting to come back next time because they had such a great experience.
If you want to kick-off your convention, conference or team retreat with a fun and inspiring program that adds instant and enduring value for all involved ... you want to go with SOCIAL FLOW.
Social Flow is based on the premise that LIFE IS TOO SHORT FOR SMALL TALK. Your participants will make new friends IN THE KEYNOTE and will continue their conversations in the hallways, during meals, and when they return to their offices.
What is Social Flow?
Have you ever experienced the state of flow when playing a sport, reading a book, or engaging in your favorite hobby? Remember how easy, effortless and FUN it was? Imagine being able to tap into that state of flow when meeting people. Imagine being able to relax and genuinely enjoy social situations instead of feeling awkward and uncomfortable.
That's what attendees learn how to do in the Social Flow Workshop. You'll love Andrew's stories of how he overcame his own shyness and science backed research about how extreme athletes and business thought leaders are creating states of flow when it matters most. .
SOCIAL FLOW gives your attendees the ability to develop the 3C’s at your event; Confidence, Clear Communication and Connection.
Your attendees will learn practical tools that they will use immediately. They will take ownership over their experience and create a successful event for themselves, one conversation at a time.
Audience members will leave the session with a unified sense of purpose that makes it easier for everyone to connect at your event.
We say that Social Flow will 10X the impact of your event because it transforms your attendees ability to share ideas, ask great questions and contribute value in whatever conversation they find themselves in. Your attendees won’t just be learning from your speakers, they’ll be learning and practicing these techniques in every conversation they engage in.
