Whether it's your annual sales conference, the investor's pitch, an advisory board or a specific customer meeting, Eliro brings just the right level of comedic content and timing to motivate, inspire and retain the main message you need to convey. Mark Riccadonna and Marc Kaye bring over two decades of stand-up comedy and professional marketing experience to uniquely address crowds in a way that is authentic and resonates time and time again. Their hilarious "10 Lessons from a Stand-Up Reject" provides a unique perspective on how comedy is the perfect teacher for traversing the realities of overcoming challenges and persisting toward success. Layered with witty anecdotes and supported by PowerPoint slides that focus more on the "point" and less on the "power", your meeting will be "stand-out through stand-up"!
