Faculty – Stand-Up
Communication to Take Your Business into the Stratosphere
As a longtime stand-up comedian and expert in presentation skills, facilitation, sales, recruiting and association development, he always dreamed of building a unique business that would blend the comedic principles of the stage with the communication needs of the real world.
There were many questions about this idea:
- Will people take a comedian seriously in a corporate setting?
- Is the idea of stand-up comedy as an effective means of communication too far outside the box?
- Will, "Stick around for the 9:30 show and try the veal" work for a Fortune 500 executive?
Geoff used these questions to create the framework of his company, Winning Wit, and, over time, turn it into a cutting-edge, profitable business. Unlike many other communications consultants who try to turn you into them, Geoff uses his experience on stage to help you become a more dynamic you.
His philosophy is that everyone has a great story to tell, and with the right application of stage techniques, everyone else will be excited to hear that unique story as well. Geoff helps people make their content compelling, exciting, attention-grabbing, and most of all, memorable.
Recognized by Kentucky Bride Magazine, WTOP Radio and several other outlets as a leader in comedic speech writing and coaching, Geoff has worked with CEO's, law firms, entrepreneurs, private groups and individuals across every industry to help them successfully tell their stories to the world.
Having performed in hundreds of comedy clubs throughout North America, Geoff has a wealth of stage experience that's helped him identify how to best connect with audiences while maintaining your authentic voice. Applying these hard-earned lessons helps his clients take their businesses to the next level by projecting the most confident and exciting versions of themselves to prospects and partners.
As the author of "The Wedding Speech Bible" series, Geoff shares best practices from the stage to help wedding parties write and deliver speeches that mesmerize audiences full of family and friends. And as a travel writer who's authored "Exploring Downtown New York," "Montreal: A Journey Through La Belle Ville," Geoff uses the same concepts of enticing language, suspenseful set-ups and powerful finishes to bring these locales to life for travelers.
Geoff works with the absolute best and brightest entrepreneurs to help them become the star of the show every time they enter the room. And having worked as the National Chapter Manager for ATD, he has a deep understanding of the L&D landscape and a passion for helping professionals in this industry thrive.
Most of all, Geoff operates on one core principle: "Your success is his success."
