"One of the last presentations of the conference was Laugh & Learn: What 80’s Pop Culture Teaches Us About Today’s Workplace by Chris Clews. I never thought I'd see the Goonies referenced at a professional conference, but it was a fantastic way to discuss diversity and inclusion! Well done!

"Like it was totally rad dude!
Chris presented a abridged version of “What the 80’s can teach us about business” (due to time constraints) during our annual Learning Festival in June 2020 to a virtual crowd of about 200 attendees. It was amazing as his use of 80’s icons blended with his energetic and enthusiastic delivery made for an extremely effective presentation.
Here are what the attendees had say. “Loved the 80s presentation!”; “Very inspiring and relatable especially in these times; “This was probably my favorite LF webinar so far :)” I would work with Chris Clews anytime and look forward to introducing him to a larger crowd for future Visa events.
Thank you Chris!
