In 2018, we hired Chad to EMCEE The Associes, our first annual technology awards event. We wanted this event to be powerful and memorable for every attendee, so Chad was the obvious choice after two years of engaging our employees. In this event, Chad used humor and improv techniques again to keep the audience engaged and with high energy during a 1.5 hour presentation.
As an IT director at Associated Electric Cooperative, I hired Chad on two separate engagements. The first engagement used Chad's improv techniques to engage my employees during a boring and dreaded compliance training event. The first event was incredibly successful and people still talk about these experiences. Employees gave the training group a standing applause after the event and we reduced our compliance events for years afterwards because people paid attention and engaged.
Before my company, MetaMythic, created a cyber-security product, we built immersive training experiences for organizations. One in particular required Chad to "EMCEE" a large training program, while entertaining and engaging the audience in between training sessions. You can see the results from this case study we made here: https://vimeo.com/97662914
During our product launch at national cyber-security conference GridSecCon, Chad played the role of one of our virtual characters on stage. He engaged the audience so much that our competition had no booth traffic after our launch and our booth was swamped. We even had audience members recording the event because it was so memorable.

MetaMythic creates the most engaging cyber-security awareness training in the industry and Chad sourced all the voice acting on the product, played the voice of the main character in the training, several sub-characters, and helped with script writing. Chad helped us produce several seasons of our product and each one has garnered awards and spotlight, stacking up four international awards so far. Chad performed this work for Season 1 of our training product.
Chad is the ultimate professional! Easy to work with and strives to understand the event, the audience and the ultimate results desired by the client. So, whether looking for a fun addition to a special personal event or as a corporate representative wanting to spice up a company event, I can personally recommend Chad as the answer.
Chad and team did an improv session at a large sales meeting (400+ people). It was awesome ! They created custom improv based on our business and meeting theme. There was audience engagement and it was a perfect way to illustrate our meeting themes. Big meetings can be boring (sadly, yes it is true) - this was a perfect way to liven up and reinforce the messaging in a truly fun way !!!!!
Chad performed for our partisan dinner and did a very good job. Material worked well for local audience as well as audience from around the state.
I hired Chad as "Bad Santa" for a couple of holiday parties and gave him some info and insight into some personal and professional characteristics of people attending the party. In the best possible way, he killed it. Everyone had a great time and I was amazed at how he scathed person after person but kept it all in good fun and in character.
I've had the pleasure of working with Chad on a number of occasions over the years and would highly recommend him. Most recently, he played the lead on a virtual reality video I helped film for McCain Foodservice. Not only did he fully embody the role of a charismatic, knowledgable, and humorous Full-service restaurant operator, he never broke character over the entire shoot. This was no small feat considering the filming took place from 11pm-6am for two days in a row. Simply put, he's the best.
