You took the messages that we all heard and put a humorous twist on them which was not only funny, but highlighted the important work that our members carry out each day in hospice and palliative care. Plus, you accomplished this in a clean and respectful way."

Do it Well. Make it Fun.® The Key to Success in Life, Death, and Almost Everything in Between

If Not Now, When? Making the Most of Your Life, Your Relationships, and Your Work

This program is a perfect follow up presentation to Do it Well, Make it Fun and gives participants an understanding of how to stay more mindful in their everyday lives.

Back To Life: Reviving Your Perspective, Your Life, and Your Future

Based on Ron's recent training as a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Ron shares some lessons that apply to both our work and personal lives. From staying healthy to being “alert and oriented” to seeking the additional resources we need to grow, this program offers insights delivered with a touch of humor.

Managing to be A Great (And Fun) Leader

This presentation is designed for supervisors, managers, and leaders to show them, in a humorous way, how to discover the necessary skills, values, and communication practices that will create a workplace culture in which excellence and fun can coexist.

Start-to-Finish Keynotes

Consider giving this unique gift to your attendees: Ron will kick off and close your conference! First, he will offer a funny and inspiring opening keynote to start your event off with a bang. THEN, Ron will attend every session at your conference and compile a customized closing keynote based on those sessions. It’s a truly one-of-a-kind experience that’s full of humor and insight and will send your attendees off with the motivation they need to continue their own personal and professional development.
