Event Description:

Fun is Good! Insights from Mike Veeck, co-owner of St. Paul Saints

About the Program:  Improve morale, culture and engagement! Attend this seminar and hear how to develop and sustain a positive, fun and creative culture for employees and customers. The premise for this program stems from the belief that when employees are allowed to work within their personal strengths and passions, they are more creative, more productive and more collaborative.  When this happens, they’ll enjoy what they do and have fun in the process – resulting in greater customer satisfaction and success for their organization.

Speaker Mike Veeck often reference the wildly successful independent baseball club, the Saint Paul Saints, to illustrate how this happens.  For almost 30 years their hilarious promotions and outstanding customer engagement practices have captured the hearts of fans everywhere.  Veeck “deconstructs” this amazing experience and shows how it works for all organizations.


 About the Speaker: Mike Veeck is a nationally renowned speaker, entrepreneur, college   professor, marketing, promotions and advertising expert as well as an owner of several successful minor-league baseball clubs, including the St. Paul Saints, and the business consulting firm, Fun Is Good.  His name is synonymous with fun and creativity and he continues to blaze new trails each year.   He believes anything is possible and that passion drives performance!   This is the premise of his acclaimed books; Fun Is Good and his newest irreverent book; Another Boring, Derivative, Piece of Crap Business Book.  Through stories of his successes and failures, Mike demonstrates that every good idea starts with innovative, creative and many times totally outrageous suggestions. Who else would train a pig to deliver baseballs to the umpire, hire mimes to perform instant replays or lock fans out of the stadium to set an all-time attendance record for fewest people at a game?  He has been recognized and praised by reputable business critics for exceptional employee engagement by bringing, joy, innovation and inclusion to the workplace.
