What sets successful employees apart? Their productivity. They get more done, they’re given more important projects. But productivity doesn’t just happen—it’s learned, planned for, and executed with intention. Develop habits that will set you apart in the following areas:

  • Managing your time
  • Running effective meetings
  • Keeping up with email
  • Prioritizing projects
  • Controlling all the paper on your desk

11:00 - 12:00 - Meet Like a Mouse Speaker: Len Millbower

In this insightful and illuminating session, Lenn Millbower, BM, MA—a 25-year Walt Disney World Operations, Entertainment, and Training veteran—pulls back the curtain on Walt’s science and sense approach. He will share what Disney does to make their theme parks so organized, so immersive, and so memorable. At each step in the process, you will learn how to apply Walt Disney’s theme park methodology to your needs. Let’s meet like a mouse so you can deliver your own magical results.

12:00-12:30 - Break/Lunch Setup

12:30 - 1:30 p.m.(lunch provided during session) - Engage Like a Mouse Speaker: Len Millbower

Walt Disney liked to proclaim, “It all started with a mouse.” Although it is true that Mickey Mouse was Disney’s breakthrough product, ‘it’ did not start with that mouse. It started with the people who made the mouse. In this Disney inspired session, Lenn Millbower, a 25 year Walt Disney World training leader and the author of the book Care Like a Mouse (Theme Park Press, January 2018), pulls back the curtain and reveals the secret to Disney’s success. It was human capital developed, focused and engaged to deliver magical customer experiences. Along the way, you will discover the leadership approaches Disney tried and abandoned. You will explore the resulting ‘castomer™’ focused culture that made Walt Disney World such an amazing customer service provider. Disney’s magic isn’t the result of pixie-dust. It’s the result of people-trust. Attend this session and learn to engage your castomers™ so they can amaze your customers.

professional magician-musician performing throughout the United States and providing warm up
entertainment for acts as diverse as the Bee Gees, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Victor Borge,
Mac Davis, Ann Murray and a performance at the White House for President Gerald R. Ford. He
applies his entertainment industry background to deliver fact focused information wrapped in a fun
filled package.
