Speaker Greag Schwem – “Topical, timely, relevant to our business and, above all, wonderfully funny and entertaining” was just one recent review from a Greg Schwem keynote address. Indeed, professional associations and Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Cisco, IBM, Motorola and McDonald’s have turned to keyntoe speaker Greg Schwemfor a dose of clean, motivational humor in the midst of serious conferences and meetings. Greg’s comedic take on the 21st century workplace and work/life balance has landed him on SIRIUS Radio, FOX News, Comedy Central and the pages of Parade Magazine. More than just a business humorist, Schwem is also an author, nationally syndicated humor columnist for the Chicago Tribune syndicate and even an award-winning greeting card writer.
Whether it’s delivering an uplifting and inspiring speech at any time of day, hosting an awards banquet or serving as a multi-day meeting event emcee, Greg Schwem will have audiences laughing throughout the day. No wonder the Chicago Tribune calls Greg “king of the hill in the growing world of corporate comedy.”
Work, Laugh, Repeat
Perfect for any group that needs a humorous break from the serious side of business. In spite of its therapeutic qualities, laughter is often absent from the business environment. Greg shows it is possible to laugh at work and about work. Audience members will put down their iPads and Blackberries and laugh along with Greg as he good-naturedly discusses topics such as Smart Phone abuse, social network overload, never-ending conference calls, “frequently” asked questions, and home office workers. His preparation includes company web site research, phone conferences and maybe even a personal visit!
Rock, Roll & Laugh Your Way to the Top!
Greg Schwem knows a thing or two about rock and roll. As a comedian who has opened concerts for stars ranging from Keith Urban, to Celine Dion, to Enrique Iglesias to (wait for it) KC and the Sunshine Band, Greg has seen how rock and roll is really a business. Like your business. In short? Every company and employee has “rock star” potential. Greg shows you how to achieve that potential in a presentation that combines hilarious comedy, live concert footage and a musical soundtrack featuring everything from classic rock to country to Lollapalooza. Topics include “Why Every Office Needs a Keith Richards,” “Are you Team Taylor or Team Kanye?,” and “Don’t Let Your Company Become a Country Song.”
Meeting emcee/video host
A good emcee needs to multitask. He must keep the event moving, be adept at improvisation and work efficiently with all participants onstage. Greg Schwem has hosted everything from a one-hour awards ceremony for 200 BAE Systems engineers to a three-day conference for 6,000 McDonald’s restaurant managers, to a virtual webinar for IBM customers. He is equally at ease chatting with a company CEO live on stage, pronouncing (correctly) the names of awards recipients, or conducting humorous on-camera interviews with meeting attendees.
