Imagine your guests sitting down for lunch or dinner as their server approaches the table to refresh the water glass. Filling the glass to the absolute brim from a height of two and a half feet, your guest is asked, “Is that enough water for you?” by a completely straight faced waiter. Imagine the same waiter returning to the table throughout the meal and becoming more eccentric with each visit.
In this first segment of his presentation Rick Lewis plays the role of an utterly inept server who breaks every rule of normal and expected behavior. By the end of the meal your guests have leaned to the left or right at least a dozen times to whisper to the person sitting next to them, “Did you just see what I saw?”
The result? Your guests connect with each other and they also begin a journey of awareness into how the unspoken rules of our culture shape our lives. Suddenly an announcement is made by the hotel management. They have asked the new waiter to come forward and apologize for his behavior.
Nervously arriving on stage, the waiter stammers for words, but he is interrupted by a broadcast of show tunes over the loudspeakers. He is taken over by the mood of the music. As he sheds his uniform, the bright jersey of Rick the entertainer is revealed. Your audience will finally realize that the waiter is actually their headline act.
Rick uses his training as a performer and comedian to captivate and delight your guests. A master of audience participation, Rick gets your crowd completely involved in his circus stunts and comedy routines. As he balances objects, juggles and mounts a unicycle that is 12 feet tall, your audience gets the laughs and a powerful message at the same time.
reaking the right rules is essential for organizational excellence. The audience members are participants in Rick's message before it even begins. By the end of his comedy show Rick has the undivided attention of your audience.
Once the stage show has concluded Rick will transition into his speaking presentation. The theme of excellence is approached from a refreshing perspective. Intelligent misbehavior is the foundation of personal and organizational success.
As a professional misbehaver and author of "7 Rules You Were Born to Break", Rick will share his unique approach to unleashing both individual and organizational potential. Prior to the event Rick will conference with your group to understand your meeting objectives and tailor his speaking element to focus on the rule your organization could most benefit from breaking.
Rick Lewis provides a keynote experience that uses world class entertainment and fun to drive home a practical and powerful message. Breaking the right rules is essential for excellence. Rick Lewis' presentation is a standalone product that will inspire your audience to take positive action in their own lives and in your organization to produce sustained change.
