Event description

Description

Former Cirque du Soleil clown and communications consultant Jeff Raz and Deloitte Managing Partner Mike Kearney discuss their successful, and ever-evolving, consultant/organization business relationship. How do you start and nourish new ideas within a large organization? How can you use tools and skill sets from one world (like the circus) and apply them to great effect in a very different world (like accounting)?

Jeff Raz is an acclaimed performer who has appeared on Broadway and in a featured role with Cirque du Soleil. He has trained performers at professional theaters and acting conservatories including the Tony-award winning American Conservatory Theater, Cirque du Soleil and New York University, and executives from Beijing to Berlin for clients such as Cisco and Deloitte. In 2000, Jeff founded the country's only comprehensive professional clown training program. He is the author of two books: Snow Clown and The Secret Life of Clowns, which was launched at the Smithsonian in 2017 and is now available at www.jeffraz.com or Amazon.

Mike Kearney is a Managing Partner at Deloitte, Mike has over 20 years of diversified professional services experience in the areas of risk management, client experience, finance, accounting, and innovation. He leads Deloitte’s Brand & Reputation Management venture fund, which is focused on making investments in solutions to help organizations promote, protect and preserve their brand and reputation like "Innovating Spark", an experiential approach to engage clients on Deloitte’s disruptive tech-enabled solutions. He also hosts Deloitte’s Resilient podcast series features authentic, engaging, and thought-provoking conversations with CEOs, senior executives, government officials, board members, and people outside the business world.
