Published November 07, 2017

Need a spark of enthusiasm to jump-start your day or even your life? Mark Lindquist may be the answer. This motivational speaker and entertainer, who speaks to audiences about 90 times a year, will get your attention. Be sure to catch Lindquist at the next Select Traveler Conference scheduled for February 4-6 in Louisville, Kentucky.

“As with this conference, organizers bring me in to give their people a little jolt, a little kick in the pants,” said Lindquist during a recent phone chat. “I talk about passion and the passion you had that brought you into your career field in the first place.”

Lindquist said CEOs depend on him to “bring a breath of fresh air” to a gathering of employees, some of whom may have gotten stale in their work duties and need a pick-me-up. He hopes to bring some sparkle to the Select Traveler delegates. “If you have a big dream for the next level in your life, I’m a guy who is out there showing you that it is possible.”

Lindquist’s talk will focus on how to recognize the mental roadblocks that hamper our progress and the need for companies to foster a workplace culture that plays to the strengths of employees. Lindquist said this session may be the only time all year that attendees stop to reflect on the things they must do to reignite their career passion.

Lindquist, a native of Korea who was adopted and raised in the United States, is also a professional singer and has performed the national anthem numerous times before tens of thousands of spectators in huge stadiums and arenas.

Playing Mind Games

Keeping with the motivational theme, the Select Traveler Conference will also present Steve Haffner, a corporate entertainer and mentalist. In his interactive “Conquering Virtual Mind Blocks” presentation, Haffner will show conference attendees how our primitive subconscious can produce misinformation and influence us in negative ways. He explains how we can use the “veto power” of our conscious brains to overcome these mind blocks that may be hindering our personal growth. Don’t fret; there is also a fun element to his talk that reveals our subconscious mind’s biases, shortcuts and hidden impulses.

“I use psychological illusion, which is a lot of fun,” said Haffner. “My audience participation includes things like mind magic, virtual mind-reading, prediction, insights into subliminal influence and lie detection. My goal is to make people more aware of these subconscious influences so we can make better decisions. The audience has fun while learning about all this,” he said.

Haffner combines fascinating insight and psychological wizardry to keep audiences engaged with his intelligent humor and demonstrations.

Haffner spent 30 years working in the corporate world before embarking on his career as an entertainer, so he possesses a deep understanding of corporate cultures.
