The Power of Partnership

You put on a great meeting last time, but now you have to top it. You need something unexpected, unique and fresh. Enter The Passing Zone!!!

Here you find something different. You find roaring chainsaws, cheering attendees, flaming torches and knives flying through the air! You find a surprising experience. And you find genuine laughter.

You find two grown men who demonstrate partnership by leaping around the stage in fuchsia leotards, with rapid-fire banter, throwing sickles around the body of someone from the audience as they receive a standing ovation. You find three of your people in astronaut suits flying through the air. You find risk-taking, laughter, and an inspirational experience your people will never forget.

Experience You Can Trust

Jon Wee and Owen Morse have one of the longest standing partnerships in corporate entertainment, a true demonstration of The Power of Partnership.  The message they deliver has such impact that in July of 2010 they were inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame (CPAE Award, from the National Speakers’ Assn.) They have appeared on The Tonight Show, The Today Show, and they were finalists on America’s Got Talent. They are at the top of their craft, with performances at the White House, in London for Prince Charles, and in the motion pictures The Addams Family and The Aristocrats. Add the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, MADtv, AOL’s “TV’s Top 5,” The Wall Street Journal, the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, four Guinness World Records, their own theater show, “Gravity Attacks!” and you have one of the world’s top comedy acts working today. They are bona fide experts on working together effectively. Jon and Owen depend on one another; their success – even their safety – is determined by how well they execute together. Your people will walk away inspired to innovate, collaborate and execute – and with a sore face from laughing so hard. IMAGINE the impact this can have on your organization.

Wait, don’t imagine it, EXPERIENCE it…with The Passing Zone!

“The Juggling Experience” (A hands-on, team-building and confidence-boosting event)

If your people could surprise themselves by learning to juggle in less than an hour, do you think they might have a new outlook on the challenges that lie ahead at work, and in all areas of their lives?

Yes, they would.

Would a group that had just spent an hour laughing together, helping one another, cheering each other’s success, walk away a stronger team and more dedicated to each other’s success in the workplace?

Yes, they would.

Would they enjoy the gift of juggling balls, and would they put them somewhere in their home or office where they would constantly be reminded of the great time they had at their event? And would they be able to impress and entertain others with this new skill for the rest of their lives?

Yes, they would.

Would The Passing Zone bring an added level of learning and fun to your event by leading your group in The Juggling Experience, a hands-on workshop that increases the impact Jon and Owen will have at your event?

The Details:
This workshop is usually presented immediately following The Passing Zone’s keynote performance. There are numerous ways that it works. Either the group will move into an adjoining space, or chairs can be quickly stacked and moved against the walls. Even if there are tables and chairs that cannot be moved, there is usually a perfectly acceptable way for people to spread out and find room up front, in the back, in the aisle, and between tables. A set of juggling balls or scarves will be handed to each attendee, usually as the session begins. Balls or scarves can be ordered directly through The Passing Zone, and the group’s logo can be printed on the balls. Jon and Owen present this experience by demonstrating and instructing from a small stage or riser. Once each step is explained, the audience juggles while The Passing Zone circulates among the group, offering one-on-one assistance, to be sure everyone is on track. Up-beat music plays to help keep everyone energized. In order for everyone to have a real chance at succeeding, 45-60 minutes should be allocated to The Juggling Experience wo

THE PASSING ZONE ON ICE: INNOVATION, COLLABORATION, EXECUTION

Want a cool keynote experience? Just add I.C.E

Jon Wee and Owen Morse, The Passing Zone, are one of the most accomplished comedy duos in the nation, and they’ve done it by focusing on three success principles. Those same principles can help any group achieve fantastic results, and there is no better way to bring them these key ideas than through The Passing Zone’s hilarious, energetic, and inspiring keynote.

Innovation:
You want your company or organization to innovate, to be different, to stand out from the rest. Don’t do what everyone else does. Look for ways to be creative, unique, and move the world forward with new ideas. Success demands innovation.

The Passing Zone are innovators. They juggle astronauts (audience members), ride Segways while juggling inflated bags, and juggle chainsaws while dancing in tights and tutus. Their skill is unmatched, and their humor is unequaled, and you’ve never seen anything like it! These guys innovate each and every day, and they will inspire your people to do the same.

Collaboration:
Nobody accomplishes anything alone. In order to succeed, your people need to understand the importance of working with others around them. Rely on each other’s strengths. Collaboration requires trust, communication, cooperation – and practice!

Jon and Owen don’t just talk about collaboration, they do it! They rely on each other at every moment, on stage, for their success, and even their safety! Watch two people whose career is based on working together. Your people will see, like never before, that nothing beats effective collaboration.

Execution:
Great ideas and plans mean nothing without execution. Your people need to carry out their vision and their plans, and they need to do it with excellence. Get it done, and do it right! Give your customer the very best you have to offer.

The Passing Zone will execute excellence right in front of your eyes. They need to be flawless, or things go crashing to t

You’ll Be a Hero: Imagine cheering crowds, and pats on the back from everyone. “Where did you find those guys?” “This is the best event ever!” “You really outdid yourself this time!” With The Passing Zone, you don’t have to imagine. It’s the real deal.

The Passing Zone is a comedy duo who not only work together – their safety is in each other’s hands! Every moment of this presentation is a clear example of collaboration between two people who have prepared, who rely on each other’s strengths, who communicate, trust, and have fun cooperating. Their entertaining and inspiring performance uses big laughs, exciting stunts, and flawless teamwork, creating an unforgettable experience for any industry.

Audience members discover:
+ The importance of recovering from setbacks
+ How working well together creates a cohesive, effective team
+ The value of trust
+ What it takes for teamwork excellence

Throwing chainsaws, balancing on each others’ shoulders while juggling flaming torches, demonstrating teamwork by getting people from the audience to participate – are all part of Teamwork: The Power of Partnership. Imagine your CEO standing in the middle of flying sickles and blazing torches! They can even juggle three people from the audience in their exciting piece – People-Juggling.

Don’t just tell your people how to be a team…show them.

This keynote is all about people. Your people. Becoming better together.
