Paul Long - Keynote Speaker

Paul J Long has challenged the traditional corporate landscape in sales and service beginning in 2004. He has leveraged this experience and his ability to connect with others for the last decade to engage audiences around the globe. With his fun-loving attitude, infectious spirit and philosophy of "fundamism," Paul has provided memorable experiences for countless engagements including but not limited to workshops, trade shows, keynotes and more. His shenanigans have been featured in media outlets like ESPN, the Washington Post and even the Wall Street Journal! Years ago, while working for a conservative call center in the highly conservative industry of insurance, Paul had a conversation with a manager and several other employees. "Are you always this upbeat and optimistic?" asked one of the call center employees. "Give it time," retorted the manager, "this place will get to him." From that day forth Paul decided not to allow experiences to shape others but rather motivate and engage others to create memorable experiences for themselves.
