What’s impossible about delivering Disney Keynote Speeches?

Disney Keynote Speakers
All of today’s photos were taken with an iPhone, on the same day.

 

What’s impossible about delivering Disney Keynote Speeches?

Literally nothing.

It’s what happens after the speech that’s impossible.

Transforming people.

Smart people.

Experienced people.

Tired, overworked and overwhelmed people.

People who think Disney Keynote Speakers have no idea how their business works.

Traveling without all of your normal work resources?

Disney Keynote Speakers
From an Arkansas hotel room last night (a Monday) i planned a Friday business meeting at Walt Disney World.

 

Traveling puts an additional challenge on your day-to-day routine because you do not have all your normal resources within reach.

However…

The digital tools available, while often overwhelming in their abundance, can make having all your resources available anywhere, anytime.

Excuses be darned.

Dear Son

Disney Creativity Keynote 60 minutes vs 90 minutes

St Mary Lake, GNP
We don’t go anywhere within Glacier National Park without Bear Spray on our belts.

 

Disney Creativity Keynote 60 minutes vs 90 minutes.

Same content for either length…

Generate Ideas  •   Select Ideas  •   Implement Ideas  •   The Leader’s Role

Same high-energy, serious-focus, fun, interactive delivery.

What’s different then?

The extra 30 minutes adds even more interactive, engaging, thought-provoking activity, roughly seven additional minutes of experiential learning for each of the four world-class creativity and innovation basics.

The I word

Chicken emojis
Don’t be a chicken. Let go of integrity and refocus on intentionality.

 

The I-word.

Integrity?

No.

Intentionality.

It’s the secret sauce for becoming excellent.

Good and very good aren’t good enough. Disney’s culture revolves around this premise.
