    Only One Thing Stands Between You and Success. It Isn’t Experience. It Isn’t Talent.

    If you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. And while it may seem like some people are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection.

    Learn how to identify with people and relate to others in a way that increases your influence with them. To be a successful leader, you need to learn to communicate in a way that connects with others.


    Geoff Zimmerman spent over 25 years in the financial services industry, doing everything from taking inbound sales calls, to technical support, to project management, to learning & development. While this may seem like an odd combination of roles, there is a common thread. Geoff specializes in uncovering the hidden drivers behind the stated need to ensure that whatever resolution is brought to the table has the best chance of achieving the desired outcome.

    Originally from Indiana, Geoff made his way across the upper portion of the country, living in Ohio and New Hampshire before getting wise and moving to Florida where Mother Nature has much less to say about when you need to stay indoors.  He resides in St. Augustine with his wife of 28 years, and has 3 grown children and one grandson.

    Geoff is a certified member of The John Maxwell Team, providing coaching, training, and public speaking based on content from the #1 leadership authority, Dr. John C. Maxwell.  He also recently launched Navigator Personal Development LLC to bring services to the Northeast Florida region as well as around the country and world.

    Even though you might not consider yourself musically inclined, you have rhythm.  Humans (like most things in nature) thrive on patterns to survive – circadian rhythms, calendars, behavior patterns.  We’re also often drawn to catchy and repetitive songs because they influence our emotions, whether it’s a groovy dance beat or a sentimental ballad.

    Rhythm can do much more than simply motivate us; it can help us connect more deeply with ourselves and others.  Research has shown that participating in group rhythmic activities can enhance communication skills, decrease stress, and even improve our brain function. Our presenter also shares what she learned about rhythm during her research in West Africa.

    In this experiential presentation using rhythm, you will:

    • Explore three ways to improve workplace performance
    • Learn how rhythm has been clinically shown to improve brain function
    • Commit to one activity you can add to your schedule to improve your creative output at work
    Come and discover for yourself how rhythm can enhance your performance at work!
