INDUSTRY: Communication & Human Development

TYPE OF INDUSTRY: Corporate

TOPIC 1:
meManagement™ This presentation teaches how viewing time from a different perspective can increase excellence in the individual and the organization. meManagement™ is a philosophy of excellence; it allows individuals to form and fashion their days and actions by managing themselves and not time. This presentation blends professional sports, psychological, corporate, and academic experience to connect purpose, strengths/weaknesses, and excellence with managing yourself. This is a powerful session loaded with important life, personal and professional management lessons.

TOPIC 2:
Total Conversation™ This is a presentation centered around developing interpersonal skills for both personal and professional success. Interpersonal communication and interaction are inescapable and are at the core of human endeavor. Some research has suggested that we spend between 80 and 90 percent of our waking hours communicating with others. It is from this premise that this session speaks of the value of understanding the self, perception, diversity, conflict management, and other aspects of interpersonal life. This is a very dynamic presentation because, quite literally, the layers that prevent us from growing are peeled as individuals make personal choices to improve their internal and, eventually, external condition.

TOPIC 3:
Peerless Presentations™ Using his experience speaking to diverse groups across the world and his classroom experience with undergraduate and graduate students, Dr. Makai brings Ancient Greco Roman rhetoric back. Peerless Presentations™ is a session designed for those interested in developing or improving business and public presentation skills. His philosophy is that in order to understand the present and the future, we must understand our past. Peerless Presentations™ looks at business and public presentation through this lens and allows the learner to appreciate the craft with renewed enthusiasm.
