A High Impact, Highly Interactive Leadership Keynote to Teach Your Leaders How to Build Cohesive Teams and Aligned Organizations

Welcome to The Hippo Show.  Is this you?


You want everyone moving in the same direction instead of wasting time and energy on politics, confusion, and unproductive conflict.


You want employees who are engaged, have clear direction, and understand why their work matters.


You know your success is contingent on building cohesive teams without any ambiguity, confusion, distractions, or misalignment.


You need every department to work together towards a collective goal instead of working towards their own priorities and agendas.


You want your leaders to be able to cut through the noise in order to make better, faster decisions.


You have an upcoming leadership retreat or conference and you want an experience that will be memorable and drive change.

The Hippo Show is a different kind of leadership keynote born out of our organizational alignment consulting practice.  Our goal is to create an experience that will jumpstart your efforts to create a cohesive team and a truly aligned organization.  Read on to learn more, watch videos of the experience, and when you are ready, contact us to have a conversation.  We’ll listen and suggest ways to incorporate this experience into your event.

“The unique interactive format kept everyone engaged throughout the entire experience and opened up the opportunity for a new dialogue at the hospital around how we need to connect and lead differently.”

— Scott Buchanan, Williamson Medical Center

What exactly is The Hippo Show?

We’re glad you asked (but a little sad you didn’t already know).  The Hippo Show is a keynote experience that can be adapted for sessions between 60 minutes and 3 hours.  It integrates the following elements so your audience learns, understands, and has the tools to build cohesion and alignment:

Traditional Keynote Speaker

Mark provides the content and framework for the experience by delivering content to help your leaders build cohesive teams and create real organizational alignment.

Live “Case Study” Theater

Professional actors bring the content and framework to life – live and on stage.  These “team members” live out the challenges and opportunities inherent in building cohesive teams and an aligned organization.  The case study format follows a fictitious company or is customized to reflect your own business, initiatives, and culture.

Live Audience Interaction

Audience members interact with the “team members” and each other in Q&A and debrief segments to develop a deep understanding of the content and to learn how to apply the model in real-life.
