The Latest from Brad Montgomery
End the Lousy Meetings! And Earn My Book… My Treat!
If your meetings seem to drag on and on… before they even start… then perhaps a great ice breaker would help. The basic idea is this: Cut out some photos from a news magazine, or from the internet, or… you get the idea. Then you encourage the group to come up with as many possible captions for that photo as possible. Don’t shoot for funny captions, just go for a LOT of captions. You’ll be surprised how many of the captions are genuinely funny. I can’t stress enough how if you try to make them funny, you’ll fail. But if you just go for quantity, you’ll have a great, fun, and sometimes funny ice breaker for your meeting. The result? More creativity. Better team spirit. And a bit of humor. I have a contest running on a funny photo of a lion… you can earn a book on me!
I interviewed professional speaker and comedian Steve Rizzo and we talked about the power of humor and laughter. And lucky you, we caught the whole thing on tape. If you would like to hear what a couple of comedians talk about when they are off stage, and when they are taking about what humor and comedy mean for us as humans, this recording is a must-hear event. You’ll learn something. You’ll have fun. And you might even find yourself to be motivated. Want to learn how to be a comedian? Then you’ll enjoy Brad and Steve.
My keynote speech is now a CD and MP3 recording. It’s called Ordinary Magic and so far the reviews are outstanding. [My mom loves it… what better proof do you want?]

First of all, I hate Spam… (unless it’s fried). I never rent, trade or sell my email list to anyone for any reason whatsoever. Not even if they give me $1 Million. (If they give me $3 Million, you might be in trouble, but
seriously, what are the chances?) You’ll never get an unsolicited email from a stranger
as a result of joining this list. Not that I’m not pretty strange, but… well… you get the idea.
Finally, some readers love to find typos, grammar errors and other sundry goofs. I occasionally leave them in just to make those people happy. So if you found some… Yippee! It’s you’re lucky day.
If you’re still reading this far down, you REALLY need to find a hobby. It’s over! All done.
Seriously dude. It’s time to get back to work. Don’t you have some email to return or something?
Ok, now you’re just pushing it. You need some serious help with time management. Move on baby! This thing is over!
Since you’re still here, here’s a video of a flash mob performance in Seattle. I love it for two reasons. One, the energy is undeniable. I’d love to be part of one, and I’d love to witness one. Second, what killer marketing for the TV show. Hire some dancers, and let YouTube have it’s way. I wish I had thought of it.
You must be craving more. Why are you here? I bet you have something that you SHOULD be doing but don’t want to. Clean your desk. Get coffee. Call your mom.
There has to be a better way to procrastinate than this!
