Mike Hourigan’s Sample Introduction
As the waves of change propel us through the twenty-first century, people are becoming more demanding and less accepting. Everyone wants more now! And, every once in a while we want to let them have it! Sometimes we may think it’s easier to blame the system, the people, or the situation, rather than looking at our alternatives and ourselves.
That’s why Riding the Waves of Change- Successfully plays a vital role in getting better results for all of us.
Our speaker is no stranger to riding the waves. He survived 17 years in corporate America where he earned his management wings with Cargill Incorporated and Olympus Corporation.
Among his other accomplishments are two books:
- Riding the Waves Without Getting Wet: a Leadership Parable
- Motivational Selling
Some of his clients include: Marriott, Disney, Harley-Davidson, ExxonMobil, General Mills, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and his new favorite client (your organization’s name)
He is no stranger to meetings like this one either; at his first convention, he got his first order, got engaged, and won a monopoly set. The order was delivered, the engagement was cancelled, and his ex-fiancé is now living on Park Place.
Please help me welcome a wave maker, wave rider, and lousy monopoly player: Mike Hourigan.
