Nobody is wrong, but now confusion runs rampant and you have to handle it!

We’ll even laugh at ourselves, with Todd leading the way. During this session you will:

  • Discover where your listener is “coming from,” and how to tailor your communication style to improve your own performance;
  • Review the eight problem words that could cost you customers, members or even employees!; and

Todd Hunt


Todd Hunt speaks to groups that want to add fun to their conferences and send members back to work smiling — with tips to improve communication and success. As an executive at Ogilvy & Mather, one of the world’s largest advertising agencies, he learned the inner workings of communication. Additional positions with an insurance administrator, direct marketing company and national retailer confirmed what he had suspected all along -- people miscommunicate every day! Now a business humorist, Todd’s communication lessons wrapped in laughter have inspired people from such organizations as Hallmark, Fujitsu, Prudential Financial, BlueCross BlueShield, Community Associations Institute, Meeting Professionals International…and now SHRM!
