Dancer, choreographer, and social entrepreneur. John Michael Schert's lecture, Creative Choice Making Embodied, took the audience to school without paper and pencils. The slideshow had no computer, or projection screen. The slides were choreographed by the power of dance.
John, the audience, and the slideshow dancers. Explored many levels of the Red Bull Arts Detroit building; and themselves on the intimate subjects of of leadership, followership, context, collaboration and empathy. Demanding the audience seek their answers from the organized chaos of the demonstration, and from the deeper parts of their mind.
John performs presentations like this around the world. For professionals, and companies that are looking for more innovative communication strategies. Sometimes he says dance and movement were the only language barriers he had to work with.
