Reinventing Yourself for Success with Damian Mason
Virtual Meeting May 2020
ABOUT THE MEETING
Regardless of how much success you or your business have experienced, the marketplace will change. To be successful, you must change with it.
Damian Mason started out as a Bill Clinton impersonator – delivering nearly 100 presentations annually and picking up a few movie credentials and TV spots along the way. Times change and so do presidents. Damian successfully transformed himself from a political satirist to an extremely “in demand” Agriculture and Business speaker. With several years of struggle in between.
In this presentation, Damian will help you see the need for re-inventing yourself and your business. He’ll provide tips and tools on what it takes to successfully change your image and your offering. As Damian says, “Re-Invent. Because your customers don’t care how good you used to be!” Given the events surrounding coronavirus and the response, this message is very timely!
About Damian Mason
Damian Mason resigned from his sales job with a Fortune 500 company at age 25 to pursue a career in political comedy. Since then he’s invented and reinvented himself a dozen times to create a life and business by choice. He knows what it takes to achieve self -made success because he’s done it. He helps organizations and individuals create their vision of success. Damian’s “tell it like it is” style combined with a crisp comedic delivery make him a refreshing alternative to the touchy-feely, motivational types. Damian is a graduate of Purdue University. He also studied comedy writing and improvisation at The Second City – Chicago. Damian is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and the National Speakers Association. When he’s not traveling for work, Damian can be found on his Indiana farm with his wife, Lori, or escaping from winter at their Arizona residence.
