.think .differently

Disney Keynote Speakers
A fellow TEDx AUK Speaker captured this. Technically, i/we should be on the red dot. An audience volunteer played the part of a Disney Guest.

.think .differently

The TED red dot is where speakers stand when they delver their idea.

Four distinct times i was not on the red dot, for an extended couple of minutes.

  • The Teddy Bear story
  • The “WOW” flip chart
  • The Goofy Hat Dad
  • The sailing flip chart ending

.think .differently means nothing without action.

Madrid Keynote Speech title and description

Man, wish there was a deadline for solving these tech issues. PS. This is what having fun with “the impossible” looks like to me.

Madrid Keynote Speech title and description:

Title:

Four World-Class Creativity Basics: Deconstructing Disney’s Creative Genius

Description:

Working at Disney from 1982-2014, Jeff Noel learned, delivered on, and taught the operational DNA for world-class business excellence. In Jeff’s Keynote you learn that organizational creativity requires parameters, not blue-sky thinking. You’ll learn how to think inside-the-box, understand the simple 3-step creativity life-cycle, and you’ll gain clarity on your critical role as an innovative leader. You’ll never think about creativity and innovation the same way again.

Most rehearsed ​speech ever

Lake McDonald Lodge
Hoping to speak in Glacier National Park in the near future. Lake McDonald Lodge pictured above.

Most rehearsed speech since 1999? Tomorrow’s Leadership keynote.

Why?

Experimenting with doing more in less time. Same speaking client as last year, but with 60 minutes less time. To convey the same message with less will require a great level of precision.

Perhaps after speaking for 20 years, i’ve finally learned how to rehearse. It sure feels like it. And it feels good. Better late than never.

My Disney speeches cover things in a way you’ve never been taught in school

Winter Garden Theater
Yesterday at 4:30pm. Waiting for our Son’s shift to finish.

This is where i sat on the curb while waiting. Time passed before i noticed. All i could think of is what possesses someone to think it’s ok to leave these here?

 

My Disney speeches cover things in a way you’ve never been taught in school or at work.

Disney Customer Service, for example, has a harsh reality, an astonishing paradox, and just three world-class building blocks.

This is different from anything you’ve ever heard of, been exposed to, or ever considered a possibility.

What then?

Habits.

Vision.

So what?

Imagine one year from now what your personal delivery of Customer Service could look like.

What habits would need to be stopped, started, or improved?

Can you envision being significantly better at customer service while actually reducing your efforts to make people happy?

Note: This is a classic, real-life example of working smarter, not harder.

Now that you’ve heard my Disney Customer Service keynote, what will you begin to do (or stop doing) within the next 72 hours?

What promise will you make to yourself?

You still dream big and make noble promises, right?

Whew.

Good.

For a minute there i was worried.

Seriously.

 

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
Not so seriously.

 

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
It was their idea, not ours.

 

Delivering a special keynote speech i’ve not delivered before.

Why?

An awesome client asked for something i didn’t have.

Initially, the answer to their request almost was no, but in taking a deep breath and asking myself “why not, and, what if”, i instead said, “Absolutely”.

The practice has been fun, inspiring, and enlightening.

The more i do it, the more i love it.

Lost count but it averages three times a day.

Practice like you mean it.

A discovery too…

i can speak the Disney Way about anything.

At Disney Institute for the 15 years i was there, we only spoke about our five core topics, two of which have since been discontinued (in 2013) as stand-alone products (Brand Loyalty…Creativity & Innovation).
