Walt Disney was a creative genius, a master showman, and an amazing teacher who once firmly proclaimed, “The normal gap between what is generally regarded as ‘entertainment’ and what is defined ‘educational’ represents an old and untenable viewpoint.”
The entertainment Disney created is both informative and enjoyable, unlike many learning programs. When entertainment and learning are aligned Disney style, the results are magical: participants pay attention, they absorb information, and they change behavior.
In this insightful and engaging presentation, Lenn Millbower, a 25-year Walt Disney World training leader and the author of the book Care Like a Mouse, shares the ways in which Walt’s entertainment strategies can be, and were, applied to actual learning challenges. Focusing on your needs, you will then identify specific tactics to make your own presentation, training program, class or communication magic.
Lenn Millbower, the Mouse Man™ and author of Care Like a Mouse, teaches Walt Disney inspired service, leadership, innovation, training, and success strategies. Everything Disney touched seems magical. It isn’t. It’s method. Lenn saw that method up close. He spent 25 years at Walt Disney World: Epcot Operations trainer, Disney-MGM Studios stage manager, Animal Kingdom opening crew, and Disney Institute, Disney University, and Walt Disney Entertainment management. Now he shares methodologies that will help you make your own magic.

“Great presentation. It moved along quickly (but not too fast) and kept my attention the whole way. I like that the presenter/moderator took the time to engage the audience from time to time. Overall, it was definitely well worth the time!”
“Lenn is a wonderful presenter. You can certainly tell that he has a background in entertainment by the way he keeps you interested. This is far from your average (boring) presentation. The information was given in a way that kept you wanting more. Excellent!”
