About The Interesting Conversations Company®
Deedre Daniel is the founder of The Interesting Conversations Company®. Before starting this business, she spent nearly two decades at GEICO, where she rose through the ranks from call center sales associate to head of the Affinity Marketing division. Her team was responsible for the marketing strategy to members of over 800 organizations. She was a “paid professional schmoozer” and amassed well over 10,000 hours of networking time from more than 11 years of attending conferences, events, and other networking receptions for these organizations. (She was on the road so much, that she racked up 1,200 nights with Marriott!) She noticed most people struggled to find anything interesting to say. This increasing inability for people to connect inspired her to write a training class called, How to be More Interesting Than a Cell Phone®. She also invented The Very Interesting Game™ as fun way to reinforce the principles taught in the class. It became so popular that she began selling it separately on Amazon.
WARNING: Your face may hurt from laughing too much. Only buy the game if you have strong cheek muscles.
Deedre is a graduate of Florida Southern College and lives in Lakeland, Florida, with her husband, Robert, her active imagination, and her imaginary puppy. When she isn’t busy busting boredom, she is writing a book, developing an online training class, and working on the 501(c)(3) she founded called The Big Fat Tip™. This organization enlists the help of volunteers to surprise people working in the service industry with $1,000+ tips. These are Total Random Acts of Kindness! Deedre has extensive experience speaking at conferences and training in corporate environments and has earned a reputation for having a wild and zany sense of humor.
