Employee Retention Wizardry

Attracting and Keeping Great Workers can be a real trick!


Every conference needs a speech on employee retention, so why not make it fun, engaging and inspiring, as well? A tight labor market, the post-Covid work-from-home hangover and smaller profit margins have created a perfect storm that makes attracting and retaining good workers a challenge for even the best of leaders. In a fun and amazing presentation, motivational comedy-illusionist Billy Riggs reveals the five magic ingredients that cast a spell over prospects and employees that keeps them loyal to you and your company. Perfect for an opening or closing keynote or after-dinner presentation it has to be fun, entertaining, and inspiring – but still leaves your people with an invaluable takeaway: how to keep your indispensable employees from disappearing!
(If you prefer, the magic can be omitted and this program will be delivered as a straight keynote.)
