For immediate release…
Tuesday – July 16, 2013

- The Northern Kentucky University Executive Leadership and Organizational Change program will host internationally known presenter Joel Bishop at its annual Alumni Dinner on Thursday, Sept. 26, from 5:30-9 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom.

Bishop offers a high-energy, entertaining presentation of how organizations can build high-performance teams that outperform their peers by adopting the Carrot Principle, which is explored in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller of the same name. The concept is simple – recognition accelerates human performance in the workplace. Based on a study by the Jackson Group that spanned 10 years and involved more over 200,000 people, the Carrot Principle concludes that constructive praise and meaningful rewards motivate people.

Bishop’s presentation will introduce leaders to the bottom-line benefits of stronger employee engagement and the vital role of recognition in an organization. He will blend human with rich content and solid global data from The Carrot Principle and the recently released The Orange Revolution to teach how appreciating great work and implementing the principles of teamwork drives employee engagement and delivers breakthrough results.

For nearly two decades, Bishop has delighted corporate leadership audiences from companies across the globe, including American Express, Newell-Rubbermaid, SC Johnson, Aeropostale. His background as a former comedy improv performer, film and television actor and voiceover artist have made him an instant favorite, engaging audiences from Amsterdam to Atlanta, and Calgary to California. As one of O.C. Tanner Learning Group’s elite presenters, Bishop’s energy, enthusiasm and humor combine for a powerful presentation.

The Sept. 26 event is open to the public, but seating is limited. Four sponsorship levels are available – individual seats are $60; two seats and a quarter-page ad costs $250; five seats and a half-page ad costs $500; and 10 seats and a full-page ad costs $1,000. All participants will receive a copy of The Carrot Principle. Proceeds from the dinner will benefit the ELOC Scholarship fund.
