GETTING TO GREAT PERFORMANCE

Imagine a keynote that completely engages your audience, pumps the room full of energy and delivers relevant, easy-to-apply tips on how to knock down barriers that stand between you and top-level performance.  Well, you don’t have to imagine.  The award-winning singing comedy act, The Water Coolers, can deliver it right now.

They combine insights from two places: their writing team — which includes both business people and professional comedy writers; and their cast members — performers who compete and win in the most competitive market in the country, New York City.  Together, they convey a fresh, unique, authentic perspective about achieving and maintaining peak performance in today’s world.

The result?  High-energy, crazy-great singing and hilarious, relatable comedy that brings smart content to life.  Using song parodies and sketch comedy, they keep attendees howling with laughter and self-recognition. This is what makes content stick. Really stick.

Attendees will take away techniques in 3 areas.

Facing the fear that blocks innovation.  Customer expectations are changing every day.  You need to innovate to meet them and that means overcoming the fear of putting yourself on the line.  As NYC-based performers, The Water Coolers spend their lives on the line and share tips to maintain the confidence to deliver.

Unguarded, trust-based collaboration – the kind that reaches a creative level.  You hear a lot about collaboration, but true collaboration needs to rise above the respectful exchange of ideas to ignite a creative process where ideas feed off of on another.  As a nationally recognized comedy act, The Water Coolers team is constantly building this dynamic and will share some of the techniques they use to do it.

Focus in a time of unparalleled distraction.  Got a great idea and ready to make the magic?  Wait, your phone is ringing.  Hold on, your 12-year old is sending you a text (that you can’t decipher).  Wow.  Does anyone know how long it takes for 137 emails to drop in?  Focus is fundamental to a great performance. Come behind the scenes with these seasoned NYC pros to learn about the tools they use to get in the zone and stay there.

THE WATER COOLERS open with a roof-raising number customized to the event that tells the audience, tonight will be special. They keep the energy high with mini-tribute songs introducing the key awards, award categories, departments, or individual winners. Upbeat keyboard music plays while winners cross to the stage and they cap off the event with a rock anthem style comedy finale featuring lyrics written specially for the entire group of winners or organization.

As with all their material the approach is celebratory, completely appropriate, and always funny. If you’d like, they can also weave in short sets of material from their act to infuse even more entertainment throughout the evening. It’s completely up to you.

THE WATER COOLERS will use their trademark super funny songs to warm up, refocus, refresh, and energize your audience as they host or emcee your program.  Each hosting job is unique, but here’s an example of how they can provide a motor that delivers momentum and clarity to the event.

They might kick off the program with a 15-minute music and comedy performance to warm up the audience and focus them on what’s ahead. Then they musically introduce the speaker that follows them, bringing him or her onto the stage seamlessly to keep the momentum going and return to the stage as needed to transition the program from topic to topic and speaker to speaker.  After a break, they may do a comic rock number called “Gotta Take a Seat Now” that brings people back from the break and refocuses them on the stage so that the next speaker gets maximum impact. To wrap up, they often do a custom big send-off rock anthem.

“We’re still getting rave reviews from many of the 600 business leaders who attended our event…You made my team look great and me by association; we appreciate that! ”

The Water Coolers performed a phenomenal closing session. Wow! I think the standing ovation says it all. I would recommend The Water Coolers to any organization. Attendees will be talking about it for a long time. Our only challenge – how do we top it next year?

Anne Blouin

CAE, Chief Learning Officer, ASAE: The Center for Association Leadership

We used the Water Coolers as part of our annual conference during an afternoon break with our top executive guests and as part of a gastro-pub themed dinner party. The guests from both events raved about the comedy and thought it was a unique experience. Given our conference is jam packed with learning sessions; the downtime and comic relief was much appreciated! As the organizer of the event, I have to say the troupe‟s attention to detail was fantastic! Even down to the last minute during the actual show when they had to grab audience members to part of the act, which by the way went over so well! The customer service from the Water Coolers was amazing and it made putting this event together so much easier.
Thank you so much I will be calling you again!

Chelsea Strickland

The Water Coolers hosted two award shows at our 2013 conference. I‟ve heard nothing but rave reviews from our attendees, calling both shows the best ever. The custom songs they wrote and performed for us were fantastic! The songs made our top award winners feel extra special and had the audience in hysterics. They captured our attendees‟ professional successes and daily frustrations perfectly. I recommend the Water Coolers for any event, especially if you want to start with a bang or end on a high note.
