Here is how we get started working together.
The first step is quick and easy. We check to see if the date of your event is open on John's calendar.
Next we will want to know about your special event, your meeting goals, the needs of your audience, and your company or association objectives.
If we determine that we can tailor a program on target for your needs, the next step will be for you to complete our pre-program questionnaire to give John a more in-depth look at the specific objectives for your program. The Pre-Program Questionnaire is designed to help John understand your unique situation. What are the things you would like John to target in designing your program? Are there things you would NOT want him to cover? What are some inside insights into your company, people, and challenges?
In preparation for your event John will interview people from your organization who will be in the audience the day of the program. He normally conducts telephone interviews with five people. This gives John a view of the daily work routine, joys and frustrations. This is not for the purpose of creating a totally new program, but to help John make his presentation relevant to the everyday activities of the audience.
After doing his research, John will design a program suited to your needs. He will select the right stories, examples and insights to bring the learning points to life. John always keeps his humor totally clean and non-offensive.
Before most programs, John will work with you to pre-select "audience volunteers" to have some fun with him on the platform. John likes to work with people from your group who are well-known and well-liked. Often these are the senior leaders and managers of your company or association. This is always a popular part of the program.
The day of the event. When traveling from out of town, John normally schedules his arrival at least six hours before the scheduled program time to avoid problems with travel delays.
Early arrival allows John to be focused, well prepared, and well rested for your program. He likes to have time to check out the meeting venue and often attends the program event scheduled just before his presentation. This helps him to tailor the opening comments for his talk.
Your program and your satisfaction is our number one priority!
