Coloring Outside the Lines™ helps participants effectively use their innate creativity to their benefit in both their professional and personal lives. This high-energy, participatory, humorous ‘signature’ keynote or workshop has received outstanding reviews from diverse audiences around the world. Certified Speaking Professional, Jeff Tobe, challenges you to step outside your comfort zone in positioning your product, your service or yourself more creatively than ever before. He provides the insight you require to give yourself the ‘competitive edge’ for which we all strive in any profession. To be competitive in today’s marketplace, you must be creative and innovative. Actually, you must stay ahead of the marketplace. Most people feel they are not the most creative person they know. In reality, everyone is creative each time they question the ‘norm’. Each time they challenge themselves to look at a challenge from a different perspective.
