What is an Edutaining CONman? Eric Moosman delivers inspiration with an EDUcational and enterTAINING flare. He CONnects with audiences and CONtributes lasting value to your attendees. His delivery is CONversational, fun, engaging, and woven with wit and wisdom.
Eric’s CONtribution to your event begins with your first CONtact. As the event coordinator, you will receive a list of questions to assist him in understanding your venue, audience, desired results for your event, and the feelings you want in that room. If you just want information, go google it. But, if you want CONfidence that an impactful and influential CONnection will be made, this is where The Edutaining CONman delivers.
What to Expect
Fun, creative, inspiring, and useful content. Edutaining in nature.
How do I CONnect to each person in the audience? As a presenter, this question is always in my mind. Isn’t that the real purpose for communicating…making a CONnection? I can be sharing a presentation on personal legacy, or organizational-appreciation culture, or the realization of dreams, or servant leadership, or even reading Dr. Seuss. But, whether the audience consists of ten, or ten times ten times ten, it doesn’t mean anything unless I can make a CONnection to the hearts and minds of individual listeners.
My work as a presenter for your event does not begin when I take the stage. It begins the moment you make CONtact with me. Through our communications with each other it is my work to understand how to complement and enhance your goals as the event organizer. I have a standard list of questions I discuss or send to each event host to gain insight into the event better; the venue, the audience, the objective of the gathering, the feeling you want to pervade that room. If I make the assumption I think I know what you need without this type of gleaning I will do you and your organization a great disservice.
In the dozens and dozens of presentations I have share, even though many of the same core elements are there, rarely are any two of my presentations the same because of that priority goal of CONnecting with THAT audience on THAT day. Often I introduce myself as CONman to others. After they smile and raise an eyebrow, I tell them it is my life goal to make positive CONtributions and CONnects.
Well, if you have read this far I might have made a spark of a CONnection with you. But, you also want to have CONfidence in my experience. Over the years, I have shared presentations to business leaders, preschoolers, religious congregations, and teens. I was fortunate to have a TEDx opportunity come my way in 2016. In order to expand my horizons I became a certified speaker, trainer, and coach for the John Maxwell Team. Plus, regular participation in Toastmasters International has been an enjoyable place to hone CONfidence and improve the art of communicating and CONnecting. I have discovered joy in using tangible, familiar objects to engage a crowd, provided I am allowed to take it on a plane.
Winston Churchill gives voice to one of my guiding philosophies of life.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
Thank you for your time. It is an honor to be considered for your event. Keep Smiling!
Additional Booking Notes
