But it's not just the fact they are award-winning jugglers that make their show great; it's the humor of watching them transform into a living metaphor for corporate clients who juggle career, home, and unending expectations.

One-of-a-kind motivational speakers, they entertain, they inspire, and they offer a unique new perspective on life.

TEAMWORK: THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIP

Many speakers talk about teamwork. Jon and Owen do it.

Their success is proven, their talent unique, and nowhere else will you see such an exciting demonstration of the amazing things that can be accomplished when people work together.

The Passing Zone is a comedy duo who not only work together - their safety is in each other's hands! Every moment of this presentation is a clear example of collaboration between two people who have prepared, who rely on each other's strengths, who communicate, trust, and have fun cooperating. Their entertaining and inspiring performance uses big laughs, exciting stunts, and flawless teamwork, creating an unforgettable experience for any industry.

Audience members discover:  

  •  The importance of recovering from setbacks 
  • How working well together creates a cohesive, effective team 
  • The value of trust 
  • What it takes for teamwork excellence 
  • How to foster relationships with partners and customers 
  • How to laugh together

Throwing chainsaws, balancing on each others' shoulders while juggling flaming torches, demonstrating teamwork by getting people from the audience to participate - are all part of Teamwork: The Power of Partnership. Imagine your CEO standing in the middle of flying sickles and blazing torches! They even juggle three people from the audience in their exciting piece - People-Juggling.  Don't just tell your people how to be a team...show them.  This keynote is all about people. Your people. Becoming better together.

THE PASSING ZONE ON ICE - INNOVATION, COLLABORATION, EXECUTION

Want a cool keynote experience? Just add I.C.E.  Jon Wee and Owen Morse, The Passing Zone, are one of the most accomplished comedy duos in the nation, and they've done it by focusing on three success principles. Those same principles can help any group achieve fantastic results, and there is no better way to bring them these key ideas than through The Passing Zone's hilarious, energetic, and inspiring keynote.

Innovation

You want your company or organization to innovate, to be different, to stand out from the rest. Don't do what everyone else does. Look for ways to be creative, unique, and move the world forward with new ideas. Success demands innovation.

The Passing Zone are innovators. They juggle astronauts (audience members), ride Segways while juggling inflated bags, and juggle chainsaws while dancing in tights and tutus. Their skill is unmatched, and their humor is unequaled, and you've never seen anything like it! These guys innovate each and every day, and they will inspire your people to do the same.

Collaboration

Nobody accomplishes anything alone. In order to succeed, your people need to understand the importance of working with others around them. Rely on each other's strengths. Collaboration requires trust, communication, cooperation - and practice!

Jon and Owen don't just talk about collaboration, they do it! They rely on each other at every moment, on stage, for their success, and even their safety! Watch two people whose career is based on working together. Your people will see, like never before, that nothing beats effective collaboration.

Execution

Great ideas and plans mean nothing without execution. Your people need to carry out their vision and their plans, and they need to do it with excellence. Get it done, and do it right! Give your customer the very best you have to offer.

The Passing Zone will execute excellence right in front of your eyes. They need to be flawless, or things go crashing to the stage! Their precision, skill, and success will blow your people away. They present outrageous, complex stunts, and they execute them live, on stage. If mistakes happen (and sometimes they do!), they are handled with precision and professionalism, which is all part of execution. Show your people execution at its best - and most fun!  Innovation. Collaboration. Execution. Add I.C.E. to your next event.

THE JUGGLING EXPERIENCE

Your Group Can Learn To Juggle!  If your people could surprise themselves by learning to juggle, do you think they might have a new outlook on the challenges that lie ahead  Yes, they would.  Would a group that had just laughed together, helped one another, and cheered each others' success, move forward as a stronger, more dedicated team? Yes, they would.  Would they enjoy the gift of juggling balls, reminding them always of the wonderful experience they had at the event? And would they be able to impress and entertain others with this new skill for the rest of their lives? Yes, they would.

Would The Passing Zone bring an increased level of learning and fun to your event by leading your group in The Juggling Experience, a hands-on workshop that maximizes the impact Jon and Owen will have at your event? Yes, they would.

The Details 

This workshop is usually presented immediately following The Passing Zone's keynote performance. There are numerous ways it works. Either the group will move into an adjoining space, or chairs can be quickly stacked and moved against the walls. Even if there are tables and chairs that cannot be moved, there is usually an easy way for people to spread out and find room up front, in the back, in the aisle, and between tables. A set of juggling balls will be handed to each attendee, usually as the session begins. Balls ordered directly through The Passing Zone will include the organization's logo printed on the balls. Jon and Owen present this experience by demonstrating and instructing from a small stage or riser. Once each step is explained, the audience juggles while The Passing Zone circulates among the group, offering one-on-one assistance, to be sure everyone is on track. Up-beat music plays to help keep everyone energized. In order for everyone to have a real chance at succeeding, 45-60 minutes should be allocated to The Juggling Experience workshop. Please view "The Juggling Experience" clip on the website or promotional DVD to see the session in action.

Attendee Take-Home Tool: Learn to Juggle on DVD 

This DVD reviews what they have learned in the workshop and includes a full show video. This is a way that they can take the instruction home with them, as well as show family and friends some of the excitement they experienced with The Passing Zone's performance.
