Tagline: Funny Motivation

Talent Highlights

  • The Story-driven CUSTOMER SERVICE Program will help you discover the six secrets to connecting with people on a deeper level – to go from customers to raving fans – by connecting through your story to theirs.
  • There’s no question about it, excellent customer service isn’t just about delivering a quality product with a smile.  
  • It’s not really about the product at all. It’s about the experience you give your customer the moment they have contact with your brand, and long after they leave your building. That’s how you turn a customer into a raving fan.
  • Kelly Swanson has spent 20 years as a motivational speaker studying this very thing.

Keynote Topics

The Story-driven LEADER program will help establish that our role in leadership is to serve as the conductor – setting the tempo and tone – making sure everybody is playing nicely together. But too many of us focus on processes and procedures – forgetting that people need more.

 

According to the latest Gallup poll, 73% of employees are disengaged at work. And if nothing changes, that number is predicted to rise to 86%. Can you imagine a world where 86% of your people have checked out, they just haven’t left yet?

 

Leadership is not about telling people what to do, but inspiring them to want to do it. True leaders create fans, and Kelly will teach you how to create employees who buy-in to your vision.

 

In this high-energy program, Kelly teaches you how to maximize the value of your leadership platform by going from manipulating to motivating – from communication effectively to connecting deeply – from telling people what to do, to making them want to do it.

 

Be the leader people want to follow.

Sharing her own powerful journey through story and the formula she discovered, you come to that magical place where the art of story meets the business of persuasion.

No matter what program she can create for you, her goal is the same – to make you laugh A LOT. Then laugh some more. To make you feel valued, challenge you to think differently, and leave you better than she found you.

Some want the show – lots of humor, lots of motivation, the stories they love, and a message handcrafted for their audience. And, boy, does Kelly love to bring the show. Opening and Closing Keynotes are her thing. And she is one of those rare breeds who likes to stick around. So let’s talk about ways she can add value beyond the keynote. Some of her most life-changing work happens in the hallway after the keynote.
