Self-imposed state change to reenergize engagement

Windermere Prep College admissions
Last night, the college admissions process review for HS Juniors.

 

Windermere Prep College admissions
Context. i spent 3/4 of the meeting in the front row, center.

 

Windermere Prep College admissions
After a long day, this meeting ran from 6:30-8:00pm…was nodding off because there were no state changes. Walking to the back was a great, self-imposed state change. It worked beautifully for my alertness and engagement.

 

It’s not too far-fetched to think that praying can be the manner in which we experience the entire day.

Disney Customer Service book

Aladdin said to Jasmine…

Positive blind spots
Two days ago, serendipitously, unsolicited feedback from a Keynote Speech attendee.

 

Aladdin said to Jasmine…in the scene where he asks her to step onto his magic carpet…

“Do you trust me?”

Client trust is easier with referrals, and more challenging through random pairing.

i’ve been spoiled by a lifetime of client trust while working as an official Disney leader.

Now, i’m having fun becoming the best Disney speaker no one’s ever heard of.

Speaker Video idea 3/5 – Details:

What follows is simply a list of content details. Content is defined as a combination of short, fun, funny, powerful, important, unexpected, untraditional, entertaining, etc.

  1. Start film at Disneyland and end at Walt Disney World (or my home desk, or in my bed awakening from a dream?)
  2. Use friends as extras to ask the common questions jeff always gets asked and also answer the ones no one asks
  3. Could theme off of Alice in Wonderland…i’m late for a very important date (client call or client meeting, or maybe a keynote speech) and i rush there to complete the journey
  4. Possible use of “text on video” to ask questions instead of having “extras”
  5. Example scene: Two people at Disney pool are talking about “this “Orlando Based Disney Keynote Speaker” and one says, “Well, he must be a Disney expert…i heard he worked at Disney for over 20 years.” Then i pop out of the water (nearby, edge of pool or something, or coming off a pool slide) and shout, “Over 30 years.”
  6. Possible scene of me as Jungle Cruise passenger with a content point (text over video?)
  7. Etc

Business trip
A 12:45 PM departure was perfect.

 

work life balance speaker
Non-stop to Chicago Midway, with time to read the inflight magazine (the wifi didn’t work).

Church tagline
This made me smile (and relax). Great karma at the venue.

 

Church tagline
Our world is a busy, distracted place. Another great karma sign as i entered the venue seating.

 

Naperville Church
Big Church.

 

Doug and Pam Lipp were gracious hosts. The Naperville Chamber of Commerce has a big team of energetic people (many whom i spoke with), led by a passionate and visionary CEO, Nicki Anderson.

Doug and i both speak about Disney.

The reality is we are potential competitors.

But after watching Doug do his signature Keynote as well as a VIP “deeper dive facilitation”, we really aren’t in the same arena.

What we offer is different enough that the world gets two great choices.
