He will speak at the President's Breakfast and National Truck Equipment Association Annual Meeting in Indianapolis on Wednesday, March 9.
The Work Truck Show 2011 is held in conjunction with the 47th Annual NTEA Convention at the Indiana Convention Center, March 8-10, 2011 (Convention, Green Truck Summit and educational programming begin March 7).
Cleese is both a versatile comedic actor and a leading business motivator. With the legendary Monty Python's Flying Circus, Fawlty Towers and A Fish Called Wanda, he created a unique comedic style that has inspired countless writers and comedians. His influence is also felt in the corporate world. Cleese and three fellow British actors founded Video Arts, the world's largest provider of business training programs, in 1972.
Cleese attributes his success at making hit training programs to his fascination with psychology and his love for teaching and making people laugh. He says, "Humor in training increases retention and decreases anxiety. When the training point is surrounded with humor, it can be readily digested, remembered and applied." On the lecture stage, Cleese brings his award-winning series of videos to life.
The President's Breakfast and NTEA Annual Meeting at which Cleese will speak is open to Show and Convention attendees by ticket only. Tickets usually sell out early, so advance registration is recommended. Tickets are $59 for NTEA members and $79 for nonmembers (if purchased on or before Jan. 28, 2011).
