ESA Leadership Summit Announces Avish Parashar as Seminar Speaker
Sessions will focus on improvisation as a vital skill for business success

Irving, Texas (October 5, 2015) — The Electronic Security Association (ESA) is pleased to announce that author and public speaker Avish Parashar will headline two seminars on Tuesday afternoon February 2 at the ESA Leadership Summit slated for Jan. 31 – Feb. 3 in Chandler, Ariz.

Parashar is an energetic and humorous speaker who uses his 20+ years of experience performing, teaching and studying improv comedy to show organizations and individuals how to deal with the unexpected quickly, effectively, and with a sense of humor. Parashar is the author of “Improvise to Success!” and the Amazon best-seller, “Say ‘Yes, And!'” He has also created dozens of other products on applying improv skills to business and life.

Weaving together humorous stories, jokes, audience interaction, and improv comedy games, Parashar keeps the audience engaged while imparting a key lesson: Planning is Important, but Improvising is Essential! No matter how well you plan, things will go wrong, surprises will arise, and the Universe will throw you a curveball. Your success and sanity are directly related to how you respond to these challenges. By the end of one of Parashar’s presentations you will have key tools to flow with all that life throws at you.

Parashar has spoken to the very creative (actors and directors), the very un-creative (accountants), the very casual (college students), and the very business-like (sales professionals). The end result is always the same – smiles, laughs, and a new way of looking at life and business.

In the first session, Parashar will teach attendees how best to perform when things go wrong. By handling these “dings” of life, participants come out looking “like a rock star.” He will share advice on how to reduce stress and increase productivity by focusing on controllable variables, find opportunities within unexpected setbacks, and to become leaders and innovators by creating meaningful change instead of just responding to it.

In the second session, Parashar will teach attendees how to stay competitive in a business world that is getting smaller and changing faster. Organizations and individuals who apply innovation move ahead. Those who don’t struggle and fall behind. In this high-energy, funny, and interactive workshop, Parashar uses ideas and exercises from improv comedy to show you how to tap into your creativity and use it to unleash innovation to be a “game changer” in your organization and industry. Both sessions that Avish will present are sponsored by Honeywell.

Leadership Summit 2016 promises to be even bigger and better, bringing together 300 security industry professionals to Link Learn and Lead their businesses to new heights.
