10 great energizers
Designed for students and professionals who plan events and run meetings. Learn how to create a positive group atmosphere and enhance your next team gathering! “Energizers” are best used to get a group moving, give a break from long periods of sitting down, and excite your team about the next portion of a program. Use them in small doses to rejuvenate a group after a meal or after a long day before a meeting. The focus in this workshop is to teach student leaders and professionals how to engage their audience, improve their presentation skills, and to energize their meetings and events! #rockstapresenter

At the end of the workshop the song will be recorded as it is being performed! #wecanworktogether #rockstargroupwork
so you want to be a professional performer?
Being a musician, speaker, or an actor or any other type of professional performer is not an easy endeavor. It requires countless hours of grueling work and effort, and success is not guaranteed! Seldom is the practical nature of this profession discussed honestly with students. This workshop will address the ins-and-outs of what it takes to make a living “on the road” as a creative professional. Topics such as personal health, budgeting and time management will be discussed in a manner that is practical and accessible. If your students want to take a shot at their dream after graduation, this workshop will definitely equip them with practical tools to help them on their way. Whether they want to be a performer, work in the entertainment industry, start their own business, or simply want to succeed at their first job out of college – this workshop will help them out! #careersuccess
the "tour manager" - keeping the band alive!
This workshop is designed for club and org advisors and the focus is on their important roles and responsibilities. Advisors will leave this workshop excited and connected to other advisors and will embrace the idea that they are the “tour managers” of their respective “bands”. Without the tour manager the band can derail, wreck hotel rooms, show up late for shows, and even wind up in jail! The reason we need tour managers is because they see the “big picture”, know how to read a map, can drive the bus and make sure everyone in the band eats! Even though your advisors sometimes want to “grab the microphone” and do it all themselves… this workshop will help them better steer their talented clubs and organizations to show up to rehearsals, tune their instruments, and put on great shows! #rockstaradvisors

It is a fun activity that is easy to set up and facilitate in any campus setting. #iamarockstar #therockstarproject For more info on “The Rock Star Photo Project” please watch the video: “The Rock Star Project”
