The ultimate ending: Paul Huschilt

If you missed any sessions throughout the convention then the one you wanted to attend was this one – Paul Huschilt delivered a hilariously detailed recap of every speaker and presenter.

Paul used a number of props on stage including an over-head projector which he used to describe the three days to his audience. There was plenty of audience interaction with Paul giving away several goodies he collected from the ExpoMart. He also had gave away a pair of embroidered boxer shorts which said “George or Jim” to an audience member who wasn’t called George or Jim, didn’t have a partner called George or Jim but had a cat called George – so that was close enough.

And the ladies didn’t miss out either – Paul gave away a beautiful hot-pink bra with ‘life-changing conversations’ spelled out in diamantes to one lucky audience member, claiming  he hoped that when she was having her next life-changing conversation, the person talking to her would be looking at her new bra!

Paul sung his way through each speaker’s key messages, much to the audience’s delight – what a wonderful and clever way to finish off the sessions for the year.

As a great leader you must ensure the people you are leading are equipped with the support for them to have the self-belief in themselves.
