Work, Laugh, Repeat
Track: Main Stage
In spite of its therapeutic qualities, laughter is often absent from the business environment. Greg shows it is possible to laugh at and about work. Attendees will put down their iPads 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.
Whether he is emceeing, entertaining, or dispensing motivation, Greg Schwem knows how to make corporate audiences laugh – all the way to the top.
Dubbed the ''King of the hill in the world of corporate comedy" by the Chicago Tribune, dozens of associations and corporations, from Microsoft to McDonald’s, turn to Greg for laughs as one of the top stand-ups in the business. A nationally syndicated humor columnist for Tribune Content Agency, he is also the author of two Amazon.com best-sellers, including "The Road to Success Goes Through the Salad Bar: A Pile of BS (Business Stories) From a Corporate Comedian."
On stage, he shares his hilarious, relatable observations on technology and the business environment, including smartphone abuse, social network overload, never-ending conference calls, "frequently" asked questions, text messaging addiction, and home office workers. Combining clean, good-natured comedy with lightning-fast improv skills and PowerPoint support, he takes audiences on comical tours of the office environment – based on actual research of their workplace – and injects a healthy dose of humor back into corporate America.
