‘Make America Grate Again’ Grater Dares To Take On Trump’s Nutty Side

As a professional keynote speaker, my presentations contain a myriad of real-world examples of ideas I’ve brought to life (and the lessons learned from doing so) to show how blue chip companies, organisations and entrepreneurs can implement innovation, creativity and left-field marketing in order to achieve wondrous success. There’s nothing more fulfilling and exciting than watching an idea from your mind come to life in glorious reality, and then it’s even more thrilling if that idea then engages with people, entertains them or even (on the rare occasion!) brings in revenue.

How To Manage Toxic, Difficult People In Work And Life

Fortunately, no unspoken workplace edict has ever dictated that an effective partnership is based strictly on two or more people actually liking each other. If that were the case, every business environment from McDonald’s to Microsoft might resemble a simultaneous reenactment of every Wrestlemania event ever witnessed. That flexibility comes at the ‘cost’ of exhibiting the patience to set aside wanting to throttle certain individuals in the name of an acknowledged shared interest. That single lesson learned and relearned repeatedly among coworkers is a universally applicable benefit of spending at least a little time as part of a team: if […]

Nerdist founder, prolific television host, comedian and holder of a degree in philosophy from UCLA, Chris Hardwick, so effectively sums up the central challenge of changing anyone’s mind about anything in his book ‘The Nerdist Way: How to Reach the Next Level (in Real Life)’, with this single quote that could preface every motivational speech until the end of time… “‘Better’ often feels ‘new,’ and new situations are like jeans: they can sometimes take a bit before they start to fit right,” observed quite possibly Hollywood’s reigning ‘Hardest Working Man in Show Business’.

How to Be A Confident Leader In Tense Situations

Albert Einstein once observed, “Adversity introduces a man to himself”. Another oft-quoted worldly philosopher, Chuck Palahniuk’s nihilistic ‘Fight Club’ prophet Tyler Durden, mused two generations later, “How much can you know about yourself if you’ve never been in a fight?” A manager stands tall amidst the rear tanks, majestically points the way and digs his feels firmly into the dirt as he commands his company forward. A leader fixes his gaze, bellows “Charge!” and advances shoulder-to-shoulder and stride-for-stride at the head of his brothers and sisters.
