The Chicago Tribune recently proclaimed Greg Schwem “king of the hill in the growing world of corporate comedy.” If your company or association wants to laugh at today’s fast-paced business world, and learn that laughter motivates employees in good times and bad, look no further than Greg’s timely and hilarious programs. Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Cisco and McDonald’s have laughed themselves silly over Greg’s program, “Work, Laugh, Repeat” while his latest keynote, “Rock, Roll & Laugh Your Way to the Top” has garnered raves for its ability to intertwine comedy and music with a powerful business message. Need an emcee or moderator? Greg will keep your audience energized and laughing throughout a multi-day event. Greg’s presentations are heavily researched and stay within the parameters of the corporate environment. That means no profanity or politically incorrect material (and a guaranteed good time for all). Greg is also an award-winning, nationally syndicated humor columnist for the Chicago Tribune and author of two Amazon bestsellers: Text Me If You’re Breathing and The Road to Success Goes Through the Salad Bar.
Work, Laugh, Repeat
Perfect for any group that needs a humorous break from the serious side of business. In spite of its therapeutic qualities, laughter is often absent from the business environment. Greg shows it is possible to laugh at work and about work. Audience members will put down their iPads and Blackberries and laugh along with Greg as he good-naturedly discusses topics such as smart phone abuse, social network overload, never-ending conference calls, “frequently” asked questions, and home office workers. His preparation includes company web site research, phone conferences and maybe even a personal visit!
Rock, Roll & Laugh Your Way to the Top
Greg Schwem knows a thing or two about rock and roll. As a comedian who has opened concerts for stars ranging from Keith Urban, to Celine Dion, to Enrique Iglesias to (wait for it) KC And the Sunshine Band, Greg has seen how rock and roll is really a business. Like your business. In short? Every company and employee has “rock star” potential. Greg shows you how to achieve that potential in a presentation that combines hilarious comedy, live concert footage and a musical soundtrack featuring everything from classic rock to country to Lollapalooza. Topics include “Why Every Office Needs a Keith Richards,” “Are you Team Taylor or Team Kanye?,” and “Don’t Let Your Company Become a Country Song.” Rock on!
Meeting Emcee/Video Host
A good emcee needs to multitask. He must keep the event moving, be adept at improvisation and work efficiently with all participants onstage. Greg Schwem has hosted everything from a one-hour awards ceremony for 200 BAE Systems engineers to a three-day conference for 6,000 McDonald’s restaurant managers, to a virtual webinar for IBM customers. He is equally at ease chatting with a company CEO live on stage, pronouncing (correctly) the names of awards recipients, or conducting humorous on-camera interviews with meeting attendees.
Comedy with a Byte
Just want some entertainment during the day or evening? Greg has over 20 years of experience as a stand-up comedian and can turn your meeting space into a comedy club with a routine that combines company information with hilarious real life stories, audience interaction and technology.
