On November 24, 2106, I was a funny motivational speaker for the NineStar Connect Utility Staff Appreciation event.
The Greenfield, Indiana-based utility company, closed down for several days and brought together over 100 staff members from electric linemen to marketing to customer service, management, engineering and more. The three days were mapped out to have each department job shadow and understand each others role.
In 2011, Hancock Telecom and Central Indiana Power merged to form NineStar Connect.
The communication division offers services like broadband internet, telecommunications, and security solutions. Electric services provide electricity to customers in Hancock, Hamilton, Madison and Rush Counties.
NineStar services over 14,000 Customers. Naturally, a growing organization, they are going through a lot of change. New to the scene is wastewater services, which is steadily growing.
This is a buoyant, fun-loving, and hard working group. They loved to laugh and celebrate their work. Overall, this group helps to build and sustain a higher quality of life for residents in the communities they serve.
I was as closing funny motivational speaker for the day. I presented the motivational speech, This Would be Funny if it wasn't Happening to Me! We celebrated the powerful work they do and talked about the Navigated the Future with Enthusiasm.
