Guest: Greg Offner, Public Speaker and Mentor
Greg Offner speaks and facilitates workshops on micro-disruption and creativity. Attendees are transformed and entertained because aside from his 16 years as a sales executive, Greg also spent 12 years as a duelling piano bar player. Entertaining audiences on 3 continents taught him something about creating a memorable experience.
In 2015 Greg’s vocal cords were so badly damaged, that permanent and irreversible loss of his voice was just weeks away. Doctors said he had to have surgery on his voice to have any chance of recovery and they weren’t optimistic.
At that time, Greg was living two lives. By day, he was a corporate sales and insurance executive, a career he had thrived in for nearly 20 years. Outside of that suit and tie world, Greg entertained audiences of all sizes as a professional musician and duelling piano player.
Over the next 4 years, Greg would undergo 10 surgeries on his voice, each one requiring a long period of total silence post-surgery. During the silent, emotional roller coaster of recovery, he leveraged positive patterns like focus, resilience, attitude and disrupted patterns that no longer served him.
This set the foundation for the DisruptionLIVE process, and ultimately the framework of pattern disruption Greg speaks on with audiences and organizations around the globe.
