Awesome setup, made it feel like we were right there with him with the video production that he does. His interactive presentation was engaging and our team really seemed to love that part of it. I like the fact that we'll have something tangible at the end of this that we can incorporate into small things internally. I was watching our audience numbers the whole time. There was no drop-off.

Embrace the Shake
Transforming Limitations into Opportunities
Success, especially in today’s fast-changing business environment, depends on our ability to make "creativity and innovation" a continuous process. Leaders want to know how their teams can rise above any challenge and succeed no matter what comes their way. Whether it’s to embrace change, overcome obstacles, sustain growth, or take your success to the next level, they want to “Embrace the Shake”.
The term “Embrace the Shake” is coined from Artist Phil Hansen’s personal story of transformation. After developing a career-ending tremor in his drawing hand, Phil embraced his “shake” both physically and metaphorically by redefining his limitation as an impetus for creativity. Phil not only restored his artistic abilities, he became a much more creative and innovative artist than ever before. Upon sharing his message on the TED stage and millions subsequently after, “Embrace the Shake” has become a motto for many businesses to approach their limitations in a new way.
Phil’s powerful message of finding creativity within limitations will inspire you to stop looking on the outside, and start looking inside yourself for resources that can transform your challenges into opportunities for success. And like Phil’s art, “Embrace the shake” isn’t just a talk, it’s an experience! Through jaw-dropping visuals and LIVE interactive art, get ready to break preconceived assumptions, activate your creative capacity, and bring fresh ways of viewing the task at hand that will culminate with success.
Are you ready to Embrace your Shake?
Your participants will be able to
• Identify preconceived assumptions that cause us to believe obstacles have the power to limit success.
• Break down resistance to limitations by recognizing their role in driving - versus stifling - creativity.
• Explore ways to view problems with a fresh perspective by activating internal resources, the most important being creativity.
All I can say is "wow"! It's been over a week since my Weichert sales team participated in Phil's "virtual experience" and they are still talking about it. At a time when a team can feel limited, he helped us to look beyond those limitations and imagine the possibilities. The motivational nature of the program was unbelievable, but the real magic was the interactive portion of the presentation
Through Phil Hansen's story "Embracing the Shake," he shares how his belief transformed from a challenge to an opportunity. This connected with our diverse audience, who all have different roles within our organization but could relate their work to his inspirational story. The audience laughed, oohed and ahhed as he revealed his artwork through storytelling. Phil left us with the message of "Embracing the Limitation" and finding one's creativity when faced with challenges
Phil's heartwarming story, awe-inspiring artistic talent, and ability to connect with every person in the audience had our attendees totally focused on the stage. And, importantly, he was fabulous to work with
Ryan, I want to begin by thanking you for your help in arranging for Phil Hansen to serve as a keynote speaker at our Annual Education Summit yesterday. His message was not only inspiring, it melded perfectly with the overall theme of the Summit .. I reiterate that Phil's presentation was just as promised, both in content and message.
