Professional Development

Great business training and professional development workshops help your teams grow as employees, coworkers, and leaders. These impactful workshops will positively influence individual contributors’ career growth and value to your company.

Our business training, leadership programs, and corporate event kick-off keynotes can be delivered anywhere in North America. They focus on the critical core competencies required to succeed in today’s business environment – from conflict resolution to time management skills. These impactful workshops can be as condensed into 60 minutes to as lengthy as half to full-day sessions. In just 60 minutes of learning, you can improve skills in any area. Half and full-day virtual professional development workshops take a deeper dive into the subject matter. Both formats will positively influence your team’s career growth and individual value to your company.

We combine professional facilitation with an engaging and dynamic approach to learning and retention.  We also lead the way in blending a professional development workshop with team building. For example, after a morning of MBTI or DiSC training, our Igniting Team Performance session will guide participants through challenging activities, which bring to life the specific behavioral and personality styles uncovered from the morning session, allowing the team to get to know each other even better. Tech-driven improvements have had a significant impact on our ability to deliver programs while enhancing true workplace inspiration, whether your team is gathered together in-person or working remotely.

        What is a Keynote Speaker?

        Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

        Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

        In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

        As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
