"Presentation of the year!"
"Chris captivated our group of students, faculty and staff with his enthusiastic presentation focused on 80s pop culture and workplace topics that resonated with attendees no matter their age or level of professional experience. An engaging, insightful, fun and useful experience that we didn't want to end.
Chris can be our wingman in education and professional development anytime because the adventure he takes you on doesn't need roads."

"We had a totally awesome time! The team really enjoyed Chris's business and life perspectives from 80s pop culture. I received amazing feedback from the team and everyone thinks that he would make a wonderful Pirate Dread Roberts! We would bring Chris back anytime!"

"Chris' virtual keynote on lessons for life and work from '80s pop culture was engaging and interactive!
And you don't need to be an 80's baby to to get it; as a 90's child I took away a lot of wisdom for my personal and professional life.
Any audience would benefit from Chris' insight. Chris was great to work with and hear from!"

"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!

"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! "
- Elizabeth Lust, Ph.D., Industrial/Organizational Consultant at Educational Testing Service
Chris’ energy, style and content can offer a nice complement to your next conference agenda. He found a unique way to integrate 80s pop culture into the workplace today providing us with lessons for leadership, sales and marketing from 80s movies and music. And he also included nostalgic and fun quizzes to get the audience engaged - raising hands, competing and laughing! So much fun!
