Ep31: Sammy Wegent reCHARGED

How are comedians and leaders similar? More than you might think! You need to be in tune with the audience (employees), you need to listen and adjust (flexibility) and you want the audience (employees) to have an engaging time. Hone your comedic skills and you are honing your leadership skills. Sammy Wegent started in the arts and on stage and now helps others in business. He understands that leadership is similar to being a presenter. It is always a show. He tells us about when he went to a career coach and was told “stop hunting rabbits and go after your bison." That advice changed his life. Sammy needed to go after his bison, which would be more satisfying than what he was currently doing. His bison--Speechless.  Sammy is a great example of combining his job and his passion.  Sammy is the Co-Founder & CEO of Speechless Inc., a startup that takes performance techniques from the worlds of improv, comedy, acting, and storytelling and applies them to public speaking and people's everyday lives. In addition to his work at Speechless, he has been performing comedy all over the world for the past 20 years. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts in Acting, has been seen in dozens of TV and web commercials and has won numerous awards for his acting work in film and animation. He has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, San Francisco Chronicle, LA Weekly, and The Huffington Post.Connect with Sammy to learn more about him and his background:Speechless Inc. = Speechless Plus =  Sign up for our newsletter at .
