Services for Associations

Can I provide value for your membership?

Your members joined your association for support, to bond with like-minded people and for the benefits you offer them. 

Perhaps one of those benefits is offering learning support that includes training in skills that will advance them in their profession. Maybe you offer them an annual celebration or conference that includes professional speakers to inspire your membership. Maybe you offer them online resources.

If you’re looking for a guest speaker who is easy to work with, fun to talk to, and who provides valuable insights into human interactions and behavior in and out of the workplace, then I might be an excellent choice for your association’s next event or training opportunity. 

I know that choosing the right guest speakers and trainers who will be the best fit for the culture, needs, and specific challenges of your group. My intent in this little corner of the internet, is to give you the information you might want or need from me in order to more easily figure out if I’m a good fit. So keep scrolling for thoughts on how I might serve your membership  by helping them to become skillful savvy communicators, collaborators and leaders

Hi! I’m Aden Nepom

I’m an award winning performer, and an improvisational team-building expert. For the last decade (it’s actually more like a decade and a half…but who’s counting?!) I’ve been creating fun, exploratory, interactive learning environments, for clients at some of the world’s most well-known brands, to develop outstanding communication habits that stick!

We are living in a turbulent time in the human experience. With increasing digital communication, hybrid workplaces, growing meeting frequency and an ever more polarized political landscape, interpersonal communication, can feel daunting. I’m passionate about helping people build a better future instead of a bitter one, so in the last five years I have worked to create resources and training that help people navigate conflict as a way to build trust and relationship, so we may all find reason in our outraged world.

I’ve combined my background as a professional improv performer and teacher with proven communication tools and techniques developed by my father (best selling author Dr. Rick Kirschner, who founded Art of Change) to help people enhance their communication and leadership skills in order to navigate our changing world more gracefully as individuals and as organizations.

Thank you for coming to my TEDx Talk…

A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure of delivering a TEDx on embracing change. This very personal talk takes you through my own journey out of limbo, and encourages you to identify where in your life you are continuing the patterns of thought and behavior that no longer serve you so you can get out of limbo too.

In recent years this topic has been updated and adapted as an excellent event closer, leaving your audience inspired to go forward and make positive changes in their lives, embrace changes at work and seek to make a positive impact in the world.
