Energize the Enthusiasm that Exists Within
Being able to define enthusiasm, determine where your particular passions lie, and what can be done to make those passions shine are keys to maintaining enthusiasm. Life can be chaotic and it is easy at times to feel beaten down. This dynamic presentation reinforces the importance of genuine enthusiasm for everyday life. Paul illustrates what an optimistic state of mind can and will do for one’s work ethic while providing concrete examples of morale-boosting ideas. The information participants take from this session will not only emphasize the importance of efficiency, a positive attitude, and a passion toward life, it will also provide them with an incredible advantage in the competitive world today.

Setting the Tempo for Success
The momentum an individual brings into any environment sets a tempo that affects the end result. During this dynamic presentation, Paul shares concepts that demonstrate the necessity for controlling one’s approach and energy regardless of the surrounding variables and circumstances. Through strategic positioning of actions, reactions, and attitude, each member of a team is directly responsible for the success of the unit as a whole. Research indicates that no matter the industry or employment position, individuals control the outcome of success through the tempos set. Paul developed the proven methods shared during this empowering training to embolden participants to take command of their influential personas in order to improve their environments.

It’s Your Life—Dominate It
As life passes one day to the next, there is no better time than now to challenge and encourage individuals to maximize their potential to the fullest. It’s Your Life – Dominate It inspires attendees to make each moment of their lives count for something special. During Paul’s high-energy presentation, participants can expect to hear in-depth remarks and observations that help generate a more confident and composed approach resulting in a stronger communication skill set and increased overall effectiveness. The concepts presented in this
dynamic presentation will captivate and stir individuals to not merely exist, but thrive and excel in this constantly changing world.

Time Management—Harnessing Your Power at Hand
Insufficient time management has the potential of being one of the largest productivity deterrents in the workplace. Developing effective time management skills not only increases efficiency, it lessens stress and improves the overall quality of life—both personal and professional. Learning to recognize and manage distractions, make continual adjustments, and discipline oneself to remain committed to proven habits are tactics that produce results. Throughout the session, Time Management – Harnessing Your Power at Hand, Paul explores these and several other areas of impact.

Choose Simplicity over Complexity
Maintaining simplicity in everyday life might sound like wishful thinking. However, keep in mind that we each control our actions and reactions. If we make a conscious choice to embark down a path, it is our responsibility to follow through with conviction. During Choose
Simplicity over Complexity, Paul shares insights critical to being effective through straightforward strategies and consistency in action. With the many decisions required in any given day, it is easy to become overwhelmed and flounder rather than move in a positive direction. By concentrating on choosing simplicity, individuals can achieve their goals, one step at a time.

Legendary Leadership in Action
Throughout generations there have been those called on to lead: courageous individuals who have taken great interest in the well-being of others. During the presentation Legendary Leadership in Action, Paul demonstrates concepts crucial to becoming a legendary leader. He outlines strategies that are vital for the continued success of any organization. Concepts from expressing genuine interest in mankind to reinventing tendencies and techniques are ideas introduced during this thought-provoking and energetic presentation. Legendary leadership truly is possessing the capacity to translate a vision into reality.

Inspired Teamwork & Leadership
The strength of a team is centered on the individuals who comprise the group; the strength of a leader begins with the team. In Inspired Teamwork & Leadership, Paul details significant traits that bring cohesiveness to any team. Uniting for a common cause, understanding and respecting diversity, and encouraging individuals through positive actions are all elements of this empowering presentation. With the information obtained, attendees will generate a renewed appreciation for collaboration and teamwork, and a keen sense of ownership in the organizational process.

Succeeding in the Battle for Well-Being
As each of us continues striving toward excellence, we often neglect our own well-being. When this occurs, the consequences can be overwhelming and harsh. In a time when we are asked to achieve significant results–with or without the aid of ample resources–our physical, emotional, and spiritual states can be threatened. Throughout the presentation, Succeeding in the Battle for Well-Being, Paul establishes user-friendly strategies that are essential when moving toward a more balanced existence. Life is made up of a series of choices. Learning to recognize and manage anxiety, make ongoing healthy decisions, and motivate oneself are strategies that equal positive results.

You Choose Your Change
Making a change or an adjustment often produces a certain degree of discomfort. Studies have shown that in order to take action, the disadvantages of a current behavior must be strong enough to encourage an individual to recognize that a change must occur. During this thought-provoking presentation, Paul outlines important concepts that revolve around the idea of change. You Choose Your Change challenges participants to consider each aspect of their lives and how beneficial making a positive adjustment can be. Change is the only constant in life. Embracing the opportunity it provides is reiterated in this empowering session.

Resolving Team Conflict Effectively
Resolving conflict within a team is crucial for optimal results in the areas of productivity, growth, and morale. When continued struggles, animosity, or disagreements become the focal point of various individuals’ attention, the entire organization is affected. During this session, Paul introduces ideas on how to isolate and effectively resolve conflict. Properly executed, conflict resolution causes people to listen to and consider different perspectives, contributing to a positive culture rather than a hostile environment. The concepts put forth in Resolving Team Conflict Effectively will enable individuals to minimize negative behaviors, broaden their alternatives, and manage conflict constructively. Encouraging the acceptance of differing opinions promotes increased collaboration and commitment to the goals and ideals of the team.

Office & Social Media Etiquette for a New Age
The evolving landscape of electronic tools has taken personal as well as professional communication to new levels. The opportunity to share information instantaneously with a client, colleague, or friend through email, social media, and texting not only broadens possibilities for success, it exponentially expands the potential for a negative interactive experience. In this thought-provoking session, Paul shares ideas and strategies to keep personas and reputations intact. Regardless of the tools employed, learning how to practice
proper etiquette in the digital age will not only guarantee positive results, but accelerate professional success.

Staring Down Disorganization
If disorganization has become the norm and, as a consequence, a feeling of frustration and being scattered sets in, then it’s time to stare down disorganization and win. During this valuable workshop, Paul encourages participants to become extremely intentional when clarifying priorities, deciding what belongs and what must go, defining a need versus a want, and learning to simplify, simplify, simplify. These concepts, along with a variety of others, are all showcased during the presentation Staring Down Disorganization. Becoming better organized not only takes time but a committed attitude to change deep-seated behaviors. Making adjustments today will produce favorable results tomorrow.

Steps to Success for Effective Meetings
The business world today revolves around a productive exchange of ideas, practices, and goals, typically conducted in a properly facilitated forum. Organized procedures aligned with active and eager participation are often determining factors for a meeting’s effectiveness and success. During the presentation Steps to Success for Effective Meetings, Paul demonstrates the concepts crucial to being an effective facilitator. By following his suggested practices and not being afraid to change how things have been done in the past, meetings can once again become empowering and productive.

Community Support & Partnerships
The infancy of successful programs, social movements, and partnerships begins with a shared vision that over time has the potential to breed greatness within the confines of a community, as well as beyond. For many, what begins as challenging the process is turned into a vision that develops into a greater idea, fueled by those who are encouraged to take ownership in the cause. It is critical that the most effective strategic plan is put in place at the beginning of any project, knowing the limitations of both manpower and dollar power. During this presentation, Paul will challenge participants to focus on details that will help produce positive outcomes.

Wowing Them with Customer Service
Everyone talks about providing quality customer service, but Paul shows organizations how to make this precept the beating heart of daily customer interaction. Participants will learn the necessary skills and attitudes that make providing quality customer care more than a slogan. During Wowing Them with Customer Service, attendees will be encouraged to focus on key aspects of service that help ensure strong business relationships as well as the longevity of financial success. Participants will be reminded that a customer is not dependent on them, they are dependent on the customer; customers are not an interruption of their work, they are the purpose of it; and no one has ever won an argument with a customer.

Sell With Confidence—Unlock Your Potential
If you knock once and there is no answer, then knock again. Very few ideas define the spirit of salesmanship better than this one simple concept. During this spirited presentation, Paul will empower participants by providing strong fundamentals that refine proven methods and increase productivity. The essentials of salesmanship offered during this extensive training will help your team build quality business relationships, learn strategies and techniques to increase the bottom line, and assist individuals in the development and nurturing of trustworthy business relationships, while increasing overall impact.

I want to express my sincere gratitude for your role in our Annual Broker Symposium. After extensive research for someone we felt would invigorate and challenge our group, the decision to bring you in as our keynote address was a great one. From the moment I first spoke with you, it was apparent that you were personable and engaging. You took the time to understand our company, our goals and objectives and our audience. Not only did you meet our expectations, but you soared above all that by inspiring while delivering a thought-provoking message. We received incredibly favorable results not only from our internal associates who attended but from our external attendees as well. I am looking forward to a future opportunity to work with you again!

Paul Vitale was recommended to me by one of my volunteer advisors. I owe her (and Paul) many thanks! After an initial conference call, I could tell he oozed energy. But not in that in your face, fake kind of way. He genuinely cared and was excited about the opportunity to present to the Young Dairy Leaders Institute’s 9th class. He asked good questions, and got to know our group on a very personal level. Paul was very polite and met every deadline with ease. He called me the night before his program just to let me know he was in-house and ready to go for his program the next day. That was a first for me, but what a nice touch, again showing he really cared. Paul did two sessions for our group, and both were engaging, interactive, and thought provoking. He had studied our group so well, and incorporated that information so well into his presentation, he left everyone wondering, how did he do that? He didn’t feel like a speaker talking down at us. He felt like one of us. His sessions rated among the highest we had in our program. Some comments from participant surveys included; powerful, relevant, engaging, enthusiastic, inspirational, great role model. I took a risk hiring Paul, as he was a relative unknown in our industry. The chatter after our session leads me to believe he won’t be for much longer.

It is with great distinction I craft this note to sincerely thank you for infusing the 1st annual Culinary Alliance meeting with a true sense of purpose and inspiration. This 3- day event was a milestone for Tyson Foods as the launch of Culinary Alliance will prove to be a pivotal bedrock in fostering culinary as a creative force and creating a true chef-to-chef network of culinary professionals within in the foodservice industry. Your ability to artfully kick-off the event with a highly motivating as well as poignant opening address was critically important in making the meeting the overwhelming success that it was. You were able to connect with a room full of chefs who had never met each other and thread a common bond between them all. This ability and art is a rare talent. You were able to read the audience, enabling a connection that was emotionally significant and essential to motivate and inspire this new high-performance team to deliver to their full potential. Culinary Alliance will go on to be a true differentiator within the foodservice industry and your contribution as a keynote speaker was a key component in launching this highly motivated team!

On May 19 you were kind enough to speak to our BASS Elite 50 anglers. The best 50 bass anglers came together to fish in our inaugural series event. Your enthusiasm, passion and connection with the anglers did not go unnoticed. Zell Rolland, and his wife Kim were just a couple of the individuals who spoke to me about what a terrific job you had done. It doesn't matter the length of time one speaks, but the message. Your message of passion, dedication, honor and skill was well received. Paul, I hope that we can work together again as I know that your talents will sky rocket you over the next few years. Good luck and thank you again for

Mine is a message of encouragement and challenge. I encourage people to see the good and embrace optimism, while challenging them to maximize their potential.

How do you prepare for keynote presentations?
An extensive amount of time is spent researching, crafting my message and developing multimedia that drives home the points. None of this, though, overshadows the importance of preparing my approach and delivery. It is a complete package.

How would you define a strong team?
You’re only as good as the people on either side of you. The best definition of a strong team is individuals who have a shared passion and belief system and put their best efforts toward a common goal, without regard to their individual recognition.

Who or what is your biggest inspiration?
My faith and family, but also our team at Vital Communications, Inc. My colleagues and I do our best on a daily basis to work toward a common goal. Hopefully we are doing our part for mankind.

Can you give three tips for better life quality?

How would you like to be remembered?
As someone who tried to enhance the lives of others, while learning as much as possible from those I meet along the way.
