As a speaker, humorist, columnist, and author of Is Your Glass Laugh Full? and My Kneecap Seems Too Loose, Ron Culberson’s mission is to help staff and managers achieve a new level of success by understanding the power of Do it Well, Make it Fun. Success, even in tough times, comes from showing up and doing a great job. Ron helps staff become extraordinary by helping them focus on excellence while making their work experience more enjoyable. He also helps managers understand the qualities of an organizational culture that will attract great employees, develop excellent leaders, and deliver extraordinary products and services.
For ten years, Ron worked as a Home Care Social Worker, Counseling Manager, and Director of Quality Services for a large hospice organization in the Washington, DC suburbs. These experiences taught him about the challenges of working on the front line, in middle management, and ultimately in senior management. He has a proven track record as a successful member of a multidisciplinary team and as an effective senior leader.
In 2001 Ron received the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, the highest earned designation from the National Speakers Association. The CSP is the speaking profession’s international measure of professional platform excellence.
In 2009, Ron cofounded Funner Speeches, LLC, a humor writing service for speakers, executives, and politicians. Ron and his partner help their clients make a greater impact with their presentations by making them funnier.
Ron’s business model also includes dedicating a significant portion of his time to volunteer service. He will be President of the National Speakers Association (NSA) in 2012.
