On December 17, 2013, I was a humorous motivational speaker for the CNH Industrial Christmas luncheon. Over 75 human resources leaders from Pennsylvania and Illinois attended the event.
CNH is going through continual change with the recent merger between Fiat Industrial and CNH Global. A solid, major industrial enterprise; a global leader in capital goods, uniting CNH’s agricultural and construction equipment operations with Iveco trucks, commercial and specialty vehicles and FPT Industrial’s broad portfolio of powertrain applications.
The Group designs, produces and sells ‘machines for work’. Across its 11 brands, 64 manufacturing plants, 49 research and development centers, a workforce of more than 68,000 people and some 6,000 dealers, CNH Industrial is present in 190 countries giving it a unique competitive position.
Like any change, the environment is ambiguous as people struggle to understand how things will shake out.
I really enjoyed being a humorous motivational speaker for CNH Industrial Christmas Luncheon. This audience was very interactive, engaging and loved to laugh. Many of these HR leaders meet monthly in a similar venue. The purpose of the Christmas Luncheon was to celebrate success and end the year on a high note.
The motivational speech, This Would be Funny if it Wasn't Happening to Me! was a humorous look at change.
