"The best companies don't train better employees, they develop better people!" ~ Gregory Offner

Gregory Offner is a former dueling pianist turned author, workforce strategist, and award-winning international keynote speaker.

He is the founding partner of the Global Performance Institute, a boutique consulting firm supporting organizations and executives seeking to get the most out of their workforce.

Gregory previously held leadership roles in the outsourced services and risk management industries, developing future leaders and advising some of the most recognizable names in business.

As a multi-talented speaker, with a passion for entertaining and educating others, his keynotes, workshops, and corporate consulting engagements help world-leading organizations create high-performing and highly fulfilled leaders.

Greg experienced a life-changing event as he spent over 2 months in total silence as a result of multiple surgeries needed to repair and rebuild his vocal cords...an experience that nearly left him mute; and which ignited the critical spark needed to transform his work from a “personal curiosity” to a “professional mission” - to help individuals and organizations identify the one change that can change everything.

He realized the tools and techniques as he appeared in world wide piano bars had virtually guaranteed audience engagement and retention. He wondered what would happen if organizations adapted these principles for the business world.

Greg compiled all his research, incorporated all his experience from the professional and piano bar world, and designed a keynote experience that addressed the real cause of employee disengagement and unwanted workforce turnover.

Since that breakthrough moment, Greg has shared his keynote and The Tip Jar Culture ™ framework with more than 100 organizations, on multiple continents. He recently published his first book called “The Tip Jar Culture”, which is receiving rave reviews.

Accomplishments and Awards of Gregory Offner include:

Described as “one of the most inspirational people on the planet” by Leadercast, his work helps organizations to attract, engage and retain exceptional employees.

Greg's Most Requested Keynote Experiences include:

Today's leaders face a critical workforce challenge, with employees demanding more for less—more pay, flexibility, and control, with less time spent working. This coincides with historically low engagement and loyalty, affecting not just productivity and profits, but also workplace culture and morale.

Globally, businesses spend 20 billion dollars each year trying to improve employee engagement and retention. Still, less than 30 percent of the the workforce is actively engaged and working toward the organization's success. What most leaders see as problems with workforce culture, or the workers themselves, are just symptoms of the real problem: the employment experience.

In this unforgettable keynote former dueling pianist turned award winning speaker Gregory Offner reveals three principles of engaging experiences—used in piano bars—and demonstrates the steps to adapt them for your workforce.

Using these three principles (Take a Sip, Fill Out a Slip, and Leave a Tip) organizations can generate more engagement, deeper commitment, and better performance from their existing workforce. Attendees will leave inspired, entertained, and equipped to put these principles into action, and create a Tip Jar CultureTM of their own.

You may know that 70% of corporate change initiatives fail, but do you know why?

To create sound we only need two elements: a source of agitation and a source of vibration. To create an organizational culture that thrives in and embraces disruption we also need two elements. In this captivating keynote, Greg uses examples from the world of business and music to reveal the key to creating successful disruptions.

Using principles of psychology and behavioral economics, Greg helps the audience explore their own approaches to change, and explains why most attempts to make sustaining changes fall flat.

"We had Gregory keynote for our Trustees conference, and he gave us a presentation like we’ve never had before. It was fun but offered a functional message for our attendees. He clearly did his homework, and everyone has told me how much they enjoyed his session. I think you would too!" ~ Earl Rogers, Executive Director, SHRM
