Hi! I’m Aden Nepom

I’m an award winning performer, and an improvisational team-building expert. For more than 15 years 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. Successful interpersonal communication can feel daunting.

As a professional speaker, I work to inspire, motivate and provide resources and training through a unique combination of my background as a professional improv performer and the proven communication tools and techniques developed by my father (best selling author Dr. Rick Kirschner, who founded Art of Change). I am deeply dedicated to helping as many people as I can to enhance their communication and leadership skills in order to navigate our changing world more gracefully as individuals and as organizations.

Speaking Topics

INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION

Below are four of my most requested topics, all of which are delivered in an engaging, interactive style that includes a mix of live experiences, storytelling, and small group discussion that can be tailored to your theme and timing needs. When you book me, you don’t get an average conference speaker. You get a collaborative partner. I will ensure that I deliver a talk or workshop that is custom tailored to your audience, big or small.

REASON IN AN OUTRAGED WORLD

Have meaningful conversations, even when you disagree!

It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. Disagreements are going to happen. Understanding how to move through challenging conversations is a necessity in today’s corporate world. 

THE BIG IDEAS PLAYGROUND

Fun and useful ways to generate new ideas!

THIS SESSION IS FUN! The Big Ideas Playground will give you experiences and tactics you can immediately take and use to ensure you get the highest roi for your brainstorming time. You’ll make room for world-changing ideas to show up, and leverage the expertise of your people in ways that surprise you.

EMBRACING CHANGE

How to get out of indecision limbo and create positive change in your life, in your work and in the world.

Adapted from my 2019 TEDx Talk, this signature keynote shines a light on the internal obstacles that we use to block our own paths to success, while offering simple, practical solutions to build better, more exciting paths forward!

SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT

Speaking with Confidence and Competence

Anyone can learn to communicate well by following a simple set of easy to adopt principles. These effortless pointers can help even the shyest, most tongue-tied people to look, sound, and feel competent and confident when pitching ideas, presenting project outcomes, or asking for resources at work.

Additional Event Services

When you book me, you can get more than a session speaker. Why not have the total conference package!

BREAKOUT SESSION WORKSHOPS

As a Keynote speaker, I will always deliver content that is engaging, useful, and inspiring. Audiences often want more! Any of my topics can be adapted (or we can custom design a session!) for a deeper dive into the essential skills of relating: listening, influence, persuasion, conflict resolution & collaboration.  

EVENT EMCEE

Emcee’s do far more than announce what’s next at your conference, we set the tone! As a professional performer I am well equipped to ensure your conference is successful by helping your audience manage their energy and expectations, setting your other speakers up for success and ensuring a smooth flow for your agenda. 

A PRIVATE, CUSTOM-TAILORED IMPROV SHOW

I’ve been in the speaking and training industry for a long time, but I’ve been improvising for (almost) my whole life. With a private improv show you will wow the crowd creating memories that will last a lifetime! With the help of my world-class colleagues, we can create performances that vary in length and style from the show-stopping amazement of a fully improvised ‘Broadway-style’ musical to the simple hilarity of a games-based show (think Whose Line is it Anyway).

NETWORKING FACILITATION

Sometimes networking needs a little boost. I can provide interstitial networking moments that help breakup the agenda, while adding tremendous value to your audience. They’ll utilize each other as resources, process learning outcomes together from your value packed sessions, and perhaps making life long connections in the process!
