Thinking Heads Speaker recommendation email

Disney Customer Service Speakers
We all had a Disney Institute flag. The goal was to take photos of our world travels. In this case the photo doesn’t share our location. Location is University of Iowa.

Dear

I am writing to you from Thinking Heads International Speaker Bureau as I would like to propose  Jeff Noel as a “Disney” keynote speaker at your upcoming ………………………………conference to talk about ……..

What makes companies like Disney so admirable, irresistible, and insanely great?

Is it magic, or perhaps pixie dust?

It’s risk-taking.

And simplicity.

A fanatical approach to thinking differently.

Want private access to Disney’s unique world-class business insights and methodologies that can excite, inspire, and motivate your audience?

Meet Jeff Noel, a 30-year Disney and Disney Institute Leadership veteran, two-time Disney Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, published author and highly-sought business advisor. He has spoken to over one-million people and 2,000 different organizations globally since 1999.

Jeff has helped many Fortune 500 companies think and act differently through a series of programs that focus on his rare approach to business operations, touching on the five key operational areas that drive success for any company, based on his 30-plus years with The Walt Disney Company.

He began his Disney career at the age of 23, learning the operational DNA of Disney early on by working from the ground up as a “skipper” on Disney’s Jungle Cruise attraction, as Jungle Jeff. It was the foundation and philosophies of the “Disney Traditions” class at the time, a 3-day course in providing guests with exceptional service and experiences, that would set Jeff on his own path to business excellence, resulting in a career spanning over three decades with one of the most admired companies in the world.

Jeff combines compelling questions, unique paradox, and common sense with Disney-energy, contagious enthusiasm, and distinct audience activities to create “Keynote Speech Magic”.

For additional information about Jeff including fees and travel requirements or to book him as a keynote speaker at your event please feel free to contact me anytime.

Disney Brand Loyalty Book

Emotional connections fuel loyalty

hierarchy of 2018 needs
Truth. Yesterday on Twitter.

 

wisdom
More truth. Yesterday at the gym.

 

Turtle crossing road
From this far away the turtle saw me and tucked in.

 

Florida Gopher tortoise
While she came out a little, she was never convinced i wasn’t there to do harm. i sat in the middle of the road for a few minutes and talked to her. It wasn’t enough.

 

Emotional connections fuel loyalty.

To create an emotional connection, something positive and unexpected has to happen.

Even the smallest positive gestures, if unexpected, are powerful.

If the positive thing was expected, it protects against delivering a negative experience, but, it doesn’t surprise and delight.

Magic happens when we are delightfully surprised.

However, meeting expectations, while decent, never moves our needle to raving fan.

When Ben at Thinking Heads emailed that he finally received the video clip, he added, “It’s excellent.”

He’s seen a few speaker videos in his two-decade career in the business.

To which i thought to myself, “Wow.”

Who’s the best Disney Keynote Speaker in the world?

Disney's jungle jeff Keynote Speakers
Jungle Excellence.

 

Who’s the best Disney Keynote Speaker in the world?

Tell you in a minute.

If you don’t tell people stuff, they may never know.

Information (constructive feedback) that they should address and modify.

Information (positive blind spots that build confidence) they should celebrate and enjoy and build upon for continued contribution.

Ben, the global speakers bureau director, told me the Ritz Carlton meeting planner told him that i was the best speaker she’s ever seen.

That speech was six weeks ago.

i never knew.

Now i do.

So Ben asked, “You want to be the best Disney Speaker in the world?”

“Yes”.

Afterward, reflecting on the experience, there was a missed opportunity….will tell you at the next blog…

Speaker Bureaus get 25% of everything

Disney's jungle jeff keynote speaker
My first Florida Summer job was in 1982, here, as Jungle Jeff.

 

Disney Keynote Speakers
Something told me to get photos of us together at a few key spots.

 

Speaker Bureaus get 25% of everything – keynotes, workshops, retreats, consulting.

The Internal Revenue Service gets 1/3 of everything after the Speakers Bureau takes their 25%.

It’s not the Magic that makes it work, it’s the work that makes it Magic.

Insight: a person could lament about how much they don’t get to keep, or they can rejoice about how much they are able to earn at the beginning.
