What does our May speaker, Pat Dyer, have in common with: Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Mike Myers, and Chris Farley?  Aside from all being hilarious, these people have all worked on their craft at the infamous The Second City Comedy Club in Chicago, IL. 

Don’t worry, you won’t be expected to perform your own improv on May 11th!  Instead, Pat will focus on Chaotic Goodness: Your Untapped Capacity for Embracing, Owning and Celebrating the Unknown. He will teach you how to embrace chaos in real time, use it to your advantage and make active choices that harness the goodness hidden inside. You, as a planner or supplier, will be able to design events that adapt more efficiently to rapid change in the moment and redefine potential hindrances as opportunities.
Come see Pat Dwyer on Thursday, May 11th at Hotel Retlaw in Fond du Lac! Network with your fellow members, sit down, relax and get ready to be inspired and learn tips embrace the chaos in our events!
