2nd Session:

Passing ZoneOwen Morse & Jon Wee

"The Passing Zone"
Saturday, November 15, 2014: 4:00p.m. – 5:30p.m.

Teamwork: The Power of Partnership - Many speakers talk about teamwork. Jon and Owen do it. Their success is proven, their talent unique, and nowhere else will you see such an exciting demonstration of the amazing things that can be accomplished when people work together.

The Passing Zone is a comedy duo who not only work together - their safety is in each other's hands! Every moment of this presentation is a clear example of collaboration between two people who have prepared, who rely on each other's strengths, who communicate, trust, and have fun cooperating. Their entertaining and inspiring performance uses big laughs, exciting stunts, and flawless teamwork, creating an unforgettable experience for any industry.

Audience members discover:
  • The importance of recovering from setbacks
  • How working well together creates a cohesive, effective team
  • The value of trust
  • What it takes for teamwork excellence
  • How to foster relationships with partners and customers
  • How to laugh together
Throwing chainsaws, balancing on each others' shoulders while juggling flaming torches, demonstrating teamwork by getting people from the audience to participate - are all part of Teamwork: The Power of Partnership. Imagine your CEO standing in the middle of flying sickles and blazing torches! They even juggle three people from the audience in their exciting piece - People-Juggling.

Don't just tell your people how to be a team...show them.

This keynote is all about people. Your people. Becoming better together
