Jason Kotecki is an artist who speaks.
really, really well.

In times of great change, the best leaders in every industry want to help their people thrive, beat burnout, and become more innovative by effectively answering this essential question, “Now that this has happened, what does this make possible?”

Unfortunately, things like red tape, new legislation, slashed budgets – and the reality of being understaffed and overworked – bring unhealthy levels of stress, as people struggle to persevere through the overwhelm, bringing the challenges of mental health front and center in every work and home environment.

Meanwhile, your industry is driven by many ever-changing regulations that require your people to be more flexible, efficient, and creative than ever before. They are exhausted. But there are a plethora of unseen rules that DON’T actually exist, which can steer your organization into ruts, cripple innovation, and restrict your progress.

A master at exposing the rules that don’t exist that limit our success, Jason uses his extraordinary artistic gifts, combined with humor and memorable storytelling, to spark intentional thinking that leads people to become more passionate, productive, and profitable.

Dave Davlin “The Game-Winning 3″ – Making It Count In Business & In Life 

Success can be defined in its simplest form as making life better for someone else. Whether it comes in creating a better product, helping to relieve someone’s stress or pain, bringing someone laughter or joy or helping someone get more out of their life, success is always about serving.

This being the case, the key to success in any business lies not only in the development of great products and services, but more importantly in the development of great people. In this insightful presentation, Dave Davlin shares three essential ingredients for developing a purpose-driven mentality to achieve a fulfilling career and balanced life.

This presentation is an hour of interaction, humor, audience participation mixed with a powerful message. It is a roller coaster ride of emotion that will find the audience engaged in hilarious laughter one moment and brought to tears the next.

The audience will be challenged to make the most of every moment in order to develop themselves personally and professionally while creating value and making a difference in the lives of others.
