Capelli to ‘help build busi­ness’

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Mo­ti­va­tional speaker Glenn Capelli will pro­vide Wim­mera au­di­ences with fresh ideas to help build bet­ter busi­nesses dur­ing a visit to Hor­sham next month.

Mr Capelli will host two work­shops on Septem­ber 20 as a guest of Busi­ness Hor­sham.

His ‘Five Alive: Work­ing smarter in a crazy world’ ses­sion will be at Cough­lin Park Com­mu­nity Cen­tre from 8.30am to noon.

The ses­sion will ex­plore how more busi­nesses have failed be­cause of poor lead­er­ship and man­age­ment than the state of the econ­omy.

It will also ad­dress how busi­nesses need more than a good idea to be in­no­va­tive.

Mr Capelli’s ‘The Com­mu­nity Play­ground: Learn how to build bet­ter re­la­tion­ships’ ses­sion will look at how ‘poor com­mu­ni­ca­tion costs time and money, strong com­mu­ni­ca­tion saves time and tears’.

The com­mu­nity ses­sion will be in Hor­sham Town Hall from 7pm to 8.30pm.

Busi­ness Hor­sham ex­ec­u­tive ad­min­is­tra­tor Wendy Mitchell said Mr Capelli’s visit would be the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s ma­jor event for 2017.

“Each year we are chal­lenged to bring to Hor­sham a ma­jor mo­ti­va­tional speaker to help to in­spire, en­cour­age, mo­ti­vate and rein­vig­o­rate busi­ness own­ers and man­agers,” she said.

“As al­ways we also make the best ef­fort to en­gage the gen­eral com­mu­nity.”

Mr Capelli is a pro­fes­sional speaker, au­thor, song­writer, ra­dio and tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter and a ‘think­ing and learn­ing ex­pert’. As the cre­ator of Dy­namic Think­ing, Mr Capelli de­liv­ers his mes­sage of cre­ativ­ity, in­no­va­tion and think­ing smarter to au­di­ences around the world, help­ing them learn how to gen­er­ate ideas to in­spire cre­ativ­ity, growth and suc­cess in both busi­ness and re­la­tion­ships.

A mem­ber of MENSA, Mr Capelli is also a for­mer ‘hobo’ who back­packed his way around the world for seven years, work­ing in a va­ri­ety of roles in­clud­ing a fish farmer on kib­butz in Is­rael, a co­me­dian in Los An­ge­les, a travel writer in Kenya and a sum­mer-camp coun­selor in North Carolina.

In 1987, Mr Capelli was awarded the pres­ti­gious Win­ston Churchill Fel­low­ship, which he used to fur­ther his re­search into bet­ter ways of think­ing and learn­ing.

With a speak­ing ca­reer span­ning more than 20 years, he has be­come Aus­tralia’s most awarded pro­fes­sional speaker.

Mr Capelli’s award-win­ning ca­ble tele­vi­sion se­ries ‘Born to Learn’ aired weekly to an au­di­ence of more than 26-mil­lion house­holds across the USA, while his cur­rent pro­gram ‘Think­ing Caps’ goes out around Aus­tralia on the ABC net­work each week.

En­try to Mr Capelli’s morn­ing ses­sion costs $60 for Busi­ness Hor­sham mem­bers and $70 for non-mem­bers. Peo­ple can email [email protected]­nesshor­sham.com.au or call 0418 266 310 by Septem­ber 11 to RSVP.

Tick­ets for the com­mu­nity ses­sion cost $20.
