 John Sweeney Biography

Inspiring Innovation at the Speed of Laughter

As a keynote speaker, Sweeney has captured the imagination of some of the most respected companies in the world. Not because he owns the nation’s oldest comedy theatre; not because a quote from his first book appeared on millions of Starbucks coffee cups; and because he danced shirtless on national television earning him “Fan of the Year” accolades from the Today Show. Rather, we believe Sweeney’s success is a result of how deeply and effectively his improvisational speaking and training programs have resonated with a broad spectrum of forward-thinking leaders.

One of Sweeney’s early corporate clients, Phil Fawcett, a Microsoft employee since 1985, expressed it like this, “I have worked one on one with both Stephen Covey and Tom Peters and I find John Sweeney’s ideas to be as valuable. His message and methods are fantastic!” Since that kind remark years ago, Sweeney has trained and entertained thousands of audiences.

Audiences come to understand, appreciate, learn and practice an improv-based mindset that helps them live and work better. Sweeney first conducts rigorous pre-event research and information gathering. He then uses the obtained client knowledge and his 15+ years of speaking expertise to create on-target, personal, and memorable experiences uniquely punctuated by an authentic and experienced brand of professional humor that further greases the wheels of learning and retention.

Sweeney is backed by a team of insightful, hands-on, authentic performers and trainers who possess uncommon business insight and unmatched event experience. His long list of repeat clients include Hilton, Unitedhealth Group, Honeywell, Microsoft, Land O’ Lakes, Target, General Mills, US Bancorp, Medtronic, Thomson and approximately a hundred more.

Whether helping companies achieve greater innovation, improve teamwork and productivity, sell better, embrace change, personalize customer service, or renew workplace enthusiasm, Sweeney is undeniable in his ability spark laughter, deliver messages, provoke thought, and initiate change.

“Great session, John! It was terrific! It was a pivotal time for our team...so glad you were they to add huge value and experience it!” -- Tom Arrix, Senior Vice President, North America Sales, Facebook
