What is the most effective way to motivate business leaders to strengthen their business success skills? As the Chief “Edutainment” Officer of The Accidental Accountant™, Peter Margaritis uses laughter, excitement, and inspiration to help audience members strive to reach higher levels in their business achievements. One of the greatest benefits to Peter’s presentation is his humor and fun style, which stems from his experience performing stand-up and improvisational comedy.

Peter connects with each person in the room, and teaches them how to strengthen their interpersonal skills by using specific principles of improvisation, communication, and leadership. He helps people to see that they can build effective leaders and teams by utilizing tools that can be applied immediately.

Instead of following the “same old” routines in the workplace, Peter helps to break up the monotony by teaching audience members the techniques that are needed to excel in their careers. Each person can learn how to be stronger leaders and effective teammates, as they apply the principles of truly understanding the needs of their team so that they can inspire and motivate every person they interact with.

Peter has authored a book titled, Improv Is No Joke: Using Improvisation to Create Positive Results in Leadership and in Life, where he discusses how the principles of improvisation, along with the two most powerful words in the English language — Yes, And — will create a positive dialog to grow your business and career.
