Educational Session


Speaker:  Paul J. Long, Professional Speaker

Two grown men, cat wrestling singlets and a social experiment. Paul Long leveraged his concept of Fundamism to become the Kansas City Royals’ 2016 Fan of the Year while inspiring his employees, organization and an entire city! Paul’s philosophy of Fundamism is a deliberate approach to happiness in the workplace, can be applied by anyone and is certain to move your team in the direction you desire. Based on the core principle of F.U.N., this experience will allow your team to explore their Foundation, Understanding of Others and help identify Next Steps in maximizing their overall effectiveness at work and in life. Laugh, learn and actively engage with your team while Paul coaches you through principles that help improve employee engagement, maximize productivity, provide memorable customer experiences and create a more F.U.N. work environment! This experience will provoke thought while leaving audiences with a strong understanding of specific actions to help improve their personal work environment.


About the Speaker: Paul J. Long

Paul J Long has challenged the traditional corporate landscape in sales and service beginning in 2004. He has leveraged this experience and his ability to connect with others for the last decade to engage audiences around the globe. With his fun-loving attitude, infectious spirit and philosophy of "fundamism", Paul has provided memorable experiences for countless engagements including but not limited to workshops, trade shows, keynotes and more. His shenanigans have been featured in media outlets like ESPN, the Washington Post and even the Wall Street Journal! Years ago, while working for a conservative call center in the highly conservative industry of insurance, Paul had a conversation with a manager and several other employees. "Are you always this upbeat and optimistic?" asked one of the call center employees. "Give it time," retorted the manager, "this place will get to him." From that day forth Paul decided not to allow experiences to shape others but rather motivate and engage others to create memorable experiences for themselves.

Testimonial from Iowa League of Cities: Paul was an incredible speaker who energized our attendees, provided a refreshing perspective on everyday life and gave us tools for incorporating F.U.N. into our work. We had numerous attendees tell us how impactful Paul was and how much his presentation inspired them while making them laugh. We truly appreciated having him join us this year and would recommend our colleagues to bring Paul in as a speaker for their conference and events.
