Whether the Keynote, Featured Entertainer or Emcee, Bob Stromberg lifts your event to the next level and makes YOU look really good.

How does he do it?

He Connects

He connects with his audience. It helps to be a multi-talented, seasoned performer who happens to be one of the funniest comics in the country. But, as importantly, Bob is genuine and audiences know it. He walks on the stage and people sit up. Within minutes they are laughing hard and the walls between them crumble.

He Understands

He understands that Comedy is a risky programing element. Comedians tend to be undisciplined and stories are numerous of embarrassments, offended employees and poor evaluations. You never have to worry about that with Bob because he never offends. You can actually relax and know that you won’t get burned because he understands that the conference is not about him. It’s about you.

He Delivers

He delivers on his promises. Your event is a big deal. If you use Bob Stromberg as an emcee when programming gaps appear, Bob fills them with standup, a non threatening touch of audience participation and even world famous shadow puppets. Your audience stays engaged and you look really good.

That’s how Bob Stromberg lifts your conference to the next level. Whether you use him as Keynote, Featured entertainment or Emcee Bob will Connect, Understand and Deliver. Think of it as an acronym. (CUD) and chew on that.

Corporate Keynote

Title: The Art of Success 

Description: In this hilarious and inspiring keynote address, Comic and Storyteller Bob Stromberg remembers Christmas Eve 1963. His grandfather opened a present… a Craft Master Paint by Number Set. Over the next weeks Bob watched him filling the numbered shapes, carefully painting one pure color at a time. Then always, his grandfather cleaned his brush. Weeks later the canvas was transformed and so was his grandfather.

This begins an exploration of the age old question, “What is real Art?” and considers how some artistic techniques are today at the very foundation of business success.

The presentations highlights the importance of accepting responsibility for one’s work.

Rule #1: Paint Your Color! 

And the importance of accepting responsibility for one’s self.

Rule #2: Clean Your Brush! 

These two rules not only helped to birth a kitsch art craze in the 1950s, but were used to create some of the art world’s greatest masterpieces. And… still today they lead to success. When followed carefully they…

Nurture better people.

Better people are better workers.

Better workers create better companies.

Better companies do better business.

Better business leads to success. 

His presentations are always heartfelt and stinking funny offering practical steps to creating a business masterpiece.
