Mark DeCarlo performs on-message Safe for Work comedy and creates viral content to promote each client’s goals and corporate agenda by empowering team members to excel creatively.
Too often, tasked with finding innovative ways to solve problems or create new assets, campaigns, and products, work groups halt due to the corporate equivalent of writer’s block. This is often the result of an old hierarchy of Top-Down Management that fails to recognize and value diversity and input from junior or marginalized team members who are inhibited from voicing dissenting opinions or suggesting ‘out there’ new ideas for fear of rejection or ridicule.
By teaching the basics of non-judgemental IMPROVISATION for BUSINESS, Mark can unleash a creative tsunami – coaxing great ideas – and a bunch of rotten ones – from team members who had previously not been utilized to their fullest potential.
“Green Hat” ideation, “Yes And” problem-solving, creative product development, and fun – and funny- role-playing are among the tools Mark employs to transform underperforming individuals and groups into creative juggernauts who learn to thrive by trusting each other. These tools result in more engaged, nuanced communication and increased productivity that rewards and nurtures employees by developing future leaders from within, resulting in higher job satisfaction and creativity.
In Mark’s CURATED BUSINESS TRAVEL talk, he explores how corporate travel has changed post-Covid and how organizations can extract maximum value by spending less and more competent.
Post-Covid, business travel is back, but it’s not the same. Emmy Award-winning Travel Channel host and Amazon Best Selling Travel and Foodie Author Mark DeCarlo demonstrate ways to combine productive business travel with exciting experiences that take the grind out of travel and put it back where it belongs in your coffee cup.
Adding curated excursions and industry-aligned experiences to business travel enhances team members’ enjoyment and productivity while out of the office. Mark outlines structuring out-of-office time to maximize productivity, communication, and loyalty.
