Chocolate Lovers

Almost everyone loves chocolate. Jim gave away 10 pound bars of milk or dark gourmet chocolate to his clients for weddings, birthdays, and holidays. They loved the chocolate so much many asked to buy some for their Customers. With over 35 tons of chocolate being delivered some arrived broken. Jim took home some of them and started to make chocolate candies. What started as a cooking project turned into a chocolate producer of gourmet, artisan flavors in amazing packaging and assortments.

When he gave out samples at trade shows and to his clients they responded with “I Love It.” Taking a page from Harpo Studios which is Oprah spelled backwards, Tivoli Chocolates was born. When you book Jim for your event he always brings Tivoli Chocolates to share.

Incentives and recognition rewards can be customized and designed to manage results more cost effectively. Rewards must be gleaned from new, must-have, products. Potential winners know that life now has more choices than the the last few decades combined.

We have partnered with Karatbars International GmbH to offer a wide range of products and options in the 999.9 fine gold market space. Their core products are 1g, 2.5g, and 5g minted 24 karat gold ingots from LBMA accredited refineries.

THE BRIGHT IDEA GUY™ IS NOT BORING

You need a presenter that is not a bland, lifeless image, but an attention-grabbing personality — one with a story behind it. They marvel at what, to them, seems to be a supernatural gift: but the truth is actually very simple. I deliver UNCOMMON, common sense. For enlightened companies, prosperity and commercial health are assured if the customer is focused upon with obsessive intimacy.

No matter your type of event- content that is topical, fresh, or seasonal, your endeavor will be meaningless if it doesn’t make your audience excited and attentive. Often meeting planners are constrained by budgets and engage a speaker that does not capture the audience and achieve the meeting objectives. It is worth the risk?

Ask yourself: How do I capture the attention of my audience without sacrificing content?

I do my homework, learn your industry language, interview thought leaders, create compelling visuals, use the best licensed movie and television scenes —and deliver Plain Talk to Smart People.
