Durwood Fincher - Today Show

Durwood Fincher, a.k.a. Dr. Robert Payne, is an entertainer, a linguist and an insightful comedian, whose specialty is corporate communications. Fincher has been the secret ingredient at hundreds of successful corporate functions, making certified heroes out of meeting planners since 1981. He is on the road an average of 200 days a year. He never fails.

As Dr. Robert Payne, he portrays the bad example, the worst-case scenario of contemporary business-speak, using language to mislead. This bumbling, bureaucratic stereotype (familiar to attendees of conferences nationwide) uses mind-numbing language, designed to distort reality, make the bad seem good and the intolerable seem tolerable.

Introduced as Dr. Payne, head of a government agency which is pertinent to your industry, his presentation is salted through and through with your own company's buzzwords, jargon and other familiar references, to further the confusion. This curious-looking executive is passed off as an Inside-The-Beltway Dork.

The audience will first have mixed reactions: a) settling down for a tedious half hour or so; b) getting ready to take copious notes; c) wishing they were somewhere else-anywhere else. But within minutes, Fincher will be having his way with their funnybones.

Following his bogus introduction by your host, 'Dr. Payne' begins his bogus presentation which sounds like he is making sense. But if you listen carefully, it becomes obvious that what he is saying makes no sense whatsoever. Slowly the crowd begins to catch on.

First there is a titter. Then a few laughs. Then lots of laughs. After the charade of Dr. Payne is exposed, Fincher swings into a fast-paced, laugh-filled sketch of real-life anecdotes about the funny foibles of people attempting to communicate with one another, against all odds. The audience, always forgiving, can't get enough.

Motivational speaker Durwood Fincher has been seen on numerous television talk shows including, Live With Regis & Kelly, Rosie O'Donnell, and Candid Camera.

Durwood Fincher provides an unexpected, hilarious experience for your audience. Introduced to your audience as Dr. Robert Payne, a bumbling, bureaucratic Washington D.C. stereotype, "Dr. Payne's" presentation-customized to your industry or organization-is filled with enough bureaucratic rhetoric, jargon, buzzwords and hollow platitudes to spin heads. As the audience listens they slowly begin to realize that he is saying nothing at all and that, in all respects, something funny is going on. Laughter erupts and the fun really begins when they catch on that they're being put-on and he shifts into a spirited, uplifting presentation stressing the importance of humor and clear communication in the workplace.
