What's Included?

With Breaking Through, your team will experience an emotional and physical metaphor that will help illuminate and push past mental blocks, internalized phobias, and limitations that hold them back in their personal and professional lives.

This program is a memorable, empowering, high-energy experience that can create the confidence and connections your new and existing employees need. Everyone walks out of the door inspired to take action like never before! Pricing starts for groups of 30, but we have delivered this program for groups with as many as 1,500 participants.

Karate experts spend years developing the skills to smash through boards and blocks with their bare hands. We take these skills and harness them into an empowering experience where participants break through a board and simultaneously break through their personal barriers. Everyone in the session will use a one-inch thick, twelve-inch square wood board as a metaphor for the obstacles and barriers we often put in our way to keep us from achieving our goals. Participants will then break through the board, using either their hand or their foot, as a physical metaphor for breaking through their barriers and achieving greatness in their life.

Through presenter-led discussion, participants will determine for themselves their own barriers. They’ll choose one barrier they are committed to working on and write it on their board. Examples of barriers include fear of failure, procrastination, fear of rejection, fear of success, addictions, etc. On the other side of the board, they will write the outcomes they will achieve or gain in their life once they have committed to breaking through the barrier.

With the help of our inspiring expert facilitator, participants will learn to trust the process as it unfolds, listen with an open mind, and take a step further than they ever thought they could. Within this final step, beyond all doubts and limitations, participants connect to their intrinsic power, moving from fear to trust and from doubt to confidence.

With a ‘challenge by choice’ approach, there is an avenue for participation for everyone, even those who may at first be daunted by the activity. Celebrating success together as a team will reinforce existing bonds and help build strong, new bonds and more profound understanding among coworkers. Breaking through these barriers will enable your team to achieve new levels of success!

        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.
