Secret Formula for Success
I deliver my meaningful, funny and entertaining message about how I have created a mathematical formula to measure your success in making the world a better place. It’s funny, touching and designed to support your agenda and engage your audience, inspiring them to find ways to improve the world every day. Guided by self-awareness and empathy, I demonstrate how to chart the positive, or negative influence we have on others. While I might be most recognized as “The Cash Cab Guy”, I wish to share this secret formula with you to bring you success in life, at work and at home.
The Audience Black Box
For more than 25 years, I have been communicating with audiences in a professional capacity as a radio broadcaster, stand-up comedian, television host, MC, entrepreneur, and executive coach.
It has always amazed me that people, in large groups, or small, can unanimously decide whether to like you, or dislike you, within seconds. My experience with this phenomenon applies to performing in media, clubs and theatres, as well as presenting keynotes in banquet halls and pitches in boardrooms. There are countless variables that influence whether you will get the results you’re looking for from your audience. These variables often affect both you and your audience unconsciously, and there is seemingly no way to control them all. It reminds me of the “black box” in science, technology and engineering, in which the “inner workings” that determine what output you get from specific input are a mystery.
I believe my experience and knowledge will guide you in coming as close as possible to having a “black box” that guarantees you get the results you want from your audience.
Using what I’ve become known for best, comedy and trivia, I will demonstrate how to influence your audience, even if it’s just one person, in an entertaining and engaging manner. You’ll get valuable tools and insights, as well as some great laughs and interesting factual knowledge.
You don’t have to be funny, or a walking encyclopedia of information in order to use these skills to succeed. You just have to have an audience.
